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.

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.

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!

OK--I now have a post office box for him and I have another Old Gasser checking with his contacts to find if anyone personally knows this creep! If we can come up with a physical address, I think we can get some authorities involved. If he has a PO address, then it should be available somehow??

If he was careless enough to use his real name as his e-mail address; then you can do a search for the counties that you suspect he may reside to see if he pays property tax which may lead you to his address. Maybe the Old Gassers in that area of California can advise of the counties located near there. Hope you get your money back; guys like this really ***** me off! mad

Well guys, I guess I'm the latest to get scammed by this guy...His name is Rob Woolley, Saratoga, Ca. I sent a deposit of 800 for 5 original milk-glass globes. He has some signs too...Does a PONTIAC, SONOCO , and a clock sound familiar??. I am gonna talk to the authorities here in Boise and get their take on how to proceed to go after this guy..Sounds like he makes a good living scamming folks. Do any of you know how to contact CRAIGS LIST to bar him from advertising on it???

mad Kevin, If anyone mailed a payment to the Post Office Box, that may involve the Postal Inspectors. Then it is a Federal Rap! Also, anyone renting a P.O. Box MUST show I.D. with a residence address within the area serviced by that Post Office. If the authorities get involved, they can obtain that address.

Thank you ED. I sent a Western Union money order but Swabby sent a postal money order to that PO box! We're getting more info all the time and currently have a distant connection that lives 10 miles from him. We're working to get his physical address and plan to contact authorities soon. Hopefully tomorrow??
The information we have has all come from Old Gassers! This would be very difficult without all the help we have received! Hopefully we put a stop to this crook!

Mr Frith...I had a similar situation with a seller in Tennessee. I had his IP address and a phone number. I called the local PD and spoke with the detectives group. they got me in touch with the DA's office. Filed a complaint and they took it from there. I also left a message on the scammer's phone that I had talked with Detective real name) and Asst DA(real names). Within 10 days i received a call from the DA's office that they made contact with the individual and within another week, had my item. I may have been lucky, but it might work.

Well, we have a couple of address's now but not sure if they are correct, as they were provided by Mr. Woolley, to another Old Gasser. I'm going to keep collecting information thru the weekend and try to contact the Sheriff in that area.
He seems to call Saratoga as home in some ads but claims he is really from San Jose. Not sure what county San Jose is in?

He had a business called Beer Signs and Cans Collectibles. The address in county records say that he does business out of 101 Tennant Ave in San Jose. He might be a renter becuase the house at that address has official records going to another address. Records show that his business registration expired in 2012. But, it looks like he's still selling through other sales venues.

Might be good to involve the postal inspector since he is using the mail for fraud. I'll see what I can find out from a PD friend of mine this weekend. Hope this helps.

That is the exact address and info he gave me, for what he is pulling he is not hiding his identity. A very strange scheme going on.

OK--We're closing in on him! Just got a call from the east coast from one of my contacts that's an Old Gas member. He has a friend that has been screwed over by this Rob Woolley character, and he's been in pretty close contact with him.
I don't know how the guy can keep it all straight! Seems that he has been screwing people for a while now and on several different sites! I can't imagine as to how many thousands of dollars are involved? I sure hope we're able to do something about it! I'll keep you all posted as the information comes in!

Every day brings us closer to this bandit. If you have anything else or know of anyone else that has been scammed by this man, please notify either myself or Swabby.

I filed a report with my local sheriff yesterday and from there he sends it to the state crime bureau and they will in turn get in touch with the Santa Clara sheriffs office? I wonder if this will really work, or are these internet criminals going to get away with it?
I mailed my report to all the other fellows involved and asked them to file with their respective sheriffs also. Maybe some of this will find its way to the proper spot?

Just got a call from a man in California that lost $1400. He lives about 5 hours from this Rob Woolley and is interested in paying him a visit. His words to me were "I'm not going away".
He was able to access this information by googling Mr. Woolley's phone number and came up with this thread! Rob Woolley 408-981-6280 Best part is that he sent him a personal check that had to be cashed at a Chase bank and he would have had to present identification and was photographed! We are getting so much closer to finding Mr. Woolley that I actually have hopes! I only pray that we can stop him from harming any more unsuspecting victims!

Just got an email from a man in Toronto and he was scammed for $600 by Rob Woolley! I guess the Canadians are not immune to this fellow either! I'm sending him all the information that I have and he has supposedly filed a fraud case with the San Jose Police Department.
Someghow this has got to get into the right hands! If you google his phone number, there are all kinds of for sale listings for this crook! It also comes up with this thread that has been warning everyone!
ONE STEP CLOSER!

Just got a call from San Jose, California and the beer can collectors out there are VERY aware of Mr Rob Woolley! Seems he may have a criminal record and a possible habit to support! The beer can collectors are all aware of him and he can't find any of them to victimize anymore.
The caller was very supportive of the action we've taken and encouraged us to keep pushing to get the authorities to apprehend this guy! Seems that hes avoided the law to this point by only doing small deals that won't get the authorities excited.
We need to get his name onto the internet every chance we get, and maybe, just maybe we'll catch up with him!

I don't understand your statement here. If you send me a check from X bank. I can take that to my bank Y and cash it with no ID. As long as my funds cover your check...

Making me sick reading this as I too am a victim of this guy. I sent him 1000 for two coca-cola items. A clock and light up sign. He cashed my cashiers check I sent him to his po box. I talked to last Thursday and he said he was surprised I didn't get my items yet. I then asked for shipping info and he said it went out on greyhound. 6 days went by of me calling texting and emailing and nothing. However today he texted me back saying my items were on there way and should be here soon. So I was feeling much better till a guy on the soda machines board read my dilemma and told me about you guys talking about this. Now I'm sick again. I'll send ken my info or may just call you. Thanks. I think. I'll keep you posted.

Ok, The guy has not changed his phone number and I never did get may items that I where told where going to be here this weekend.

I have filed a complaint with the Post office as well as started to file a report with the police department, They actually have directed me the IC3 which is the Internet Crime Complaint Center and I'll be doing this report today.. They suggest that all who have been victimized by this guy to file with them.. the more the better..
Contact me for more information or go to www.ic3.gov

Lets go after this guy!

Mark , I believe you may be correct, I have worked in the trucking industry since 1995 and still do for a major shipper as a mechanic . When I worked for roadway express in the late 90's they had a case of theft One time I remember and it was considered crossing interstate commerce lines and to the best of my knowledge the Feds did get involved. I normally don't chime in on these topics but this guy is a dirty dog and I hope they get him!! Really a shame . But I think you are on to something there.

No he hasn't called me and gasman 56 seems to be in Oakland which is relatively near to San Jose where Mr. Woolley was last reported to be.
gasman56--if you are legit, then give me a call, and we'll get you verified!

Tell him that you have a friend that is in the same town and that you want to send him over to take a look. See what he says. The usual response has been that his friend or brother in another state has it.
