This is a SCAM!
The guys name is Rob Wooley with a Saratoga, California address
His phone number is 408-981-6280
He also has a Pontiac sign-Sunoco sign-Standard sign& a Ford clock on Craigs list! Supposedly he has sold the clock and I hope its to no one from this site.
HOW DO I KNOW??--Because he robbed me of $400 and will not return calls, emails or texts anymore! This was over a month ago! Believe me, this guy doesn't have any of this stuff--he uses fake pictures and just collects the payment with NOTHING in return!!!

Scamming some one for a couple hundred is one thing but he's looking for some serious cash out of what he's got listed! He just asks enough that it looks like a really good deal and its always an estate deal or a relatives personal stuff! Hopefully he didn't get any Old Gassers!

I put out the same warning about this guy but for California CL cities. He's been taking pictures of highly desireable cans and signs from old ebay listings and posting them as his own. When you call him to say you want to come and take a look at the item, he says that his brother in St Louis has it. But, pay him up front and he'll have his brother ship it out. I haven't seen him in the California listings lately but it looks like he's moving around. I tried reporting him to local authorities but they don't seem to really care.

Kevin,

Since you are a victim, can you submit a complaint to the FTC? This is a link to make a complaint.

I think I'm just a small victim! I bet he's scammed a lot of others and feels confident enough to move up to bigger stuff!
I'll file a complaint but I'd rather get ahold of the Sherriffs office in his county and see if they can't visit him. Might be hard to find though, without his exact address?

He's somewhere within Santa Clara County. He has used cities like San Jose, Santa Clara, Campbell, and Cupertino. I believe him to be in my area. At least his cell phone number is. Since you can claim to be a victim, the authorities might listen to you. I'm a third party with no claim. Maybe that's why they don't care. This guy's phone number may be good enough of a start.

His IP address can also be tracked by authorities [they can get that from CL & cell phone provider].

He called me out of the blue and I came so close to sending him $1500. Then after a day he said to wire it for faster shipping. That is when I got cold feet and tried to find someone that knew him with no luck. I guess my hunch was right.
Funny thing is all his items he sent pics of had the same background. I asked for better pics of the $700.Pontiac sign and he gave the exact detailed pics I wanted within a few minutes. I do believe he has most items in his possesion

If you don't know somebody from a craigslist ad, never send money for an item. Cash only if you can meet them in a public area and exchange for the goods. I lost (& learned a lesson) $50 to some schmuck on CL years ago. Now I know better after they didn't send the advertised item. frown

Hey Kevin,
Sorry this scum bag got you!
This guy called me because i had a ad on Craigslist looking for pumps and signs. He sent me the same Pontiac, Sunoco, Clocks and Shell sign pics and the first thing i noticed was that the pics were all different sizes. I googled Pontiac sign and the same one came up that had sold at auction, so did most of the others. I called him back and ask for better pics of the Pontiac sign (knowing he could not produce them) and if he had other Auto signs and he sent me some other pics but ignored my request for better pics of the Pontiac. I emailed him letting him know that i would take all the Auto signs and a couple of the clocks and ask how he wanted to get paid and he burnt my phone up for three or four days. Unanswered of course!

So much for that great deal on the ford clock Mick. This guy emailed me directly, nothing to do with craigslist
