Even if it isn't chipped up ...Putting anything but reproduction in description is fraud IMO ...If you don't know don't sell.

David, the problem is those "same re-pops on ebay" that go for $250-1000 you are talking about are usually $25 signs.

Crying?? I actually don't even buy any signs on Ebay, I just keep the list current for other Old Gas members who do.

I think it is smart of you to buy at well known auction houses. However, some fakes slip into auctions as well. How would you feel if you went to an auction and paid $2500 for a sign you've always wanted and when you got home, three of your buddies told you it's a fake or repop made to look old? Same thing we are trying to prevent on ebay. Many, if not most of us, on this web-site want original signs for our collections.

And second there is no problem buying reproduction signs, if they are listed as such. I buy them all the time for my gas pump restorations. It is however, a scam when people buy the same $25 dollar signs and beat them up and then sell them for "a fraction of the cost" at $250.

The problem is people are being deceived (scammed). Think of it like this, I have a rock that is painted gold, but I will sell it to you for just $300 an ounce. Is that a good deal for a fraction of the cost?

I see you are new here, and I hope I'm not coming off as harsh (DB could explain it better... lol), but we are all just trying to help each other on this website.

All of this is unfortunate to say the lease. It seems evil-bay is the lead offender, one would think they would try to weed out the impostures but they won't because it is all about the money more then anything. I personally have not bought signs on that site for years.

I'm shocked that someone would be good with paying four times the real cost for this stuff that is make believe. I noticed that the up coming Morphy's auction listed reproductions and the estimate cost ranges are crazy. The next thing will be auctions dedicated to fake signs. Sad but what are we to do? Thank goodness we have oldgas!

egk0306_7 ships from the same city in Michigan as michiganpickin_7 . It also appears to be the same person holding up the signs (face obscured) and the same items are hanging on the walls in the background in pics of several items.

I HAVE UPDATED THE LIST AGAIN TO MAKE IT EASIER TO FIND SCAMMERS.

I will periodically continue to update this list for Old Gas members. Just reply on this thread with other scammers to add to this list. [I did not compile this list, it is from your contributions. I just try to keep it organized]

If you reply with other scammers names, be absolutely sure the sign(s) they are selling are fake (i.e. make sure you know what your talking about). Maybe have confirmation from a few experts to be sure. I would hate to have an honest seller on this list.

Here is the updated compiled list contributed from Old Gas members:
