First of all we made a deal over the telephone & a check was sent to me. James Willden told me he needed the sign right away.. I told them that I would specially pack this vintage sign. I went out and bought a special box, tape, peanuts & had my wife help me pack this old sign. It was rather large & it took me a whole day locating materials & packing the antique sign.  While waiting a couple of days for the check I then contacted them to see what happened. They informed me check was sent however due to holidays it may be delayed, even though he used 2 day mail. A red flag went up however no need for me to worry yet. When the check did arrive i decided to call the bank and see if it was valid. Vintage Porcelain Neon Signs

Finally to my surprise check was no good.Finally I contacted Jim Willden to see what was going on.Furthermore he informed me that since the check was late he decided to stop payment in case it had fallen into the wrong hands. Now Im really skeptical and red flags are going up again.As a result He informed me that another check would follow, however it never showed up. I then contacted him again and his response was, we changed our minds. Then figured out what the scam was. They wanted me to ship the sign before their check cleared my bank account, as James Willden told me he needed this sign right away in our preliminary phone conversation. Hence, it was another failed scam & I only lost about $50 in materials & a whole day of work for me and my wife. James Willden, Lori Willden, Vintage Signs, Old Signs….
