Is Bobslot or Bobs Lot a Scam? Review of the Website

The dealership I work at has gotten a few phone calls from people looking to buy a car they looked at on Craigslist from Bobs Lot located at bobslot.com. The odd thing is they are calling about vehicles we don't even have at our store. So I went on Craigslist to view the listing and found nothing with my dealership's name or number, so this is really odd to me as to why people are calling our store's telephone for a car we don't even have.

Is Bobslot or Bobs Lot a Scam? Review of the Website

I'm assuming it's an Auto Broker type setup, but not a good one considering it's difficult to get anyone on the phone and there is no email. Seems like a scam to me. If I get more info I'll be sure to post about it.

    The website they are listing is Bobs-lot.com

    The dealer ship Bobs-Lot is a fake and mirror of the legitimate business Bobs Lot.

      They are currently posting in Okc.

    appreciate the discussion here - yeah -the prices seemed too good to be true and I couldn't find a valid contact for them - will avoid bobs-lot / bobslot ads.

    Scam, no one ever answer your phone calls.

  • April 5, 2022 at 3:45 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    My advice is too run don't walk from these ads. They have tons of add on fees and no one too talk too.

  • February 3, 2022 at 12:14 PM by an anonymous user from: Memphis, Tennessee, United States

    I have tried to contact them by phone several times. Leave a number and we will get back . Same tuck listed in Ashville NC and Knoxville TN.

    Bob's Lot has listings in Augusta, Ga. area. Same story- no address, prices too good to be true, etc. Flag 'em on Craigslist.

  • January 25, 2022 at 3:18 PM by an anonymous user from: Green Bay, Wisconsin, United States

    Yes, bobslot, ... Another counterfeit opperation of craigslist, they should shut down craigslist, for letting these places, go on with this b.S.

    Bob’s lot is a scam

  • January 21, 2022 at 11:29 AM by an anonymous user from: Lakewood, California, United States

    This has to be a scam. Their link to the contact us page is broken. Add, no one ever picks up at any hour. I've reached out to them through Craigslist trying to get a reply nothing there as well. Same vehicles are listed from San Diego to Bakersfield. If this was legit, then why so hard to get a hold of anyone.

    Also, note the photos posted, Youtube link shows Bob's as a scam site,... This site says that the search links are legit and that the site is not a scam site. https://...

    Yelp's site seems to sum this up. Many poor 1 star ratings. Seems this place, Bob's Lot does sell vehicles but, with their ratings, it's not a wonder why it's so hard to find details on their website. https://www.yelp.com/biz/bobs-auto-sales-portland-2

    thanks great information and responsibility

  • December 12, 2021 at 4:13 PM by an anonymous user from: Morgan County, Morgan, Utah, United States

    It says bobs lot is in salt lake city on craigslist, but the website, which looks and feels like something from the mid 1990s, gives no indication of the location for the dealership.

    I sortof think that because I called the phone number and gave my name and email on their contact me form that I'm going to get a whole lot of scam/spam calls for the remainder of my life.

    However, if they're legit, they should register as a charity organization because they're advertising cars at about half their value.

    I agree been doing it for a week and no emails or calls

  • November 26, 2021 at 9:47 AM by an anonymous user from: Knox County, Knoxville, Tennessee, United States

    62ea8b9a8e14378c87adae2ffc0612dc@sale.craigslist.org I found this on craigslist when I clicked on reply...

    • February 1, 2022 at 6:23 AM by an anonymous user from: Lancaster, Nebraska, United States

      I checked the BBB site and they rated it 75.7 - Standard, Common, Valid.

    • February 1, 2022 at 6:03 AM by an anonymous user from: Lancaster, Nebraska, United States

      If you are familiar with craigslist when you hit reply that is a craigslist email assigned to the seller. Go to craigslist and look for furniture or boats or something and hit reply and you will get a similar number.

  • November 8, 2021 at 12:36 PM by an anonymous user from: King, Redmond, Washington, United States

    Exactly...no contacts! If you scam...open email or answer a d**n phone! Idiots

  • September 16, 2021 at 9:40 AM by an anonymous user from: Travis, Austin, Texas, United States

    This site seems rather retarded and uninformed. No one can drop by the address to see if it exists?

  • July 27, 2021 at 11:19 AM by an anonymous user from: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

    Bobs lot is a scam…….

    • December 12, 2021 at 4:14 PM by an anonymous user from: Morgan County, Morgan, Utah, United States

      how do you know?

      • January 10, 2022 at 1:07 PM by an anonymous user from: Vanderburgh, Evansville, Indiana, United States

        Look at their site. No address, no local number, cars being posted all over the country on Craigslist - and I promise you any "deal" you're seeing on craigslist doesn't exist on their website. I found them from a listing in Indiana, yet others seem to be seeing them in Utah and God knows where.

        • September 15, 2022 at 1:34 PM by an anonymous user from: Norwalk, Connecticut, United States

          Ads in Portland too. There's never the same car on their website. They never have the "more ads by this user" enabled either.
