Original review posted by user Nov 24, 2015

Derek Yates of Images Signs & More Located at 450 Bolton St New Bedford MA IS A *** ARTIST!His tel # is 774-328-8059.

He owns a company called Image Signs & More he has no website, the only advertising he does in on facebook and instragram. A friend found him on Instragram and sent me his contact info. I called him to make a sign for our business. He went back to his office and quoted me $2100.

He called me EVERY single day basically harassing me to get me to give him deposit. I should have known right then and there that he was not going to be the right guy! But he kept calling and calling and calling. SO I caved in and gave in half down over the phone via my credit card.

He promised to have the sign done in 1 week. Guess what he never called after he got the money! So I call him 1 week after he stated the sign is almost done and he will come and install it on Friday. I call him at 4 pm on Friday, he says oh yeah I was just going to call you.

I am heading down to you now. So he finally shows up at 7 PM and he gives me 1 out of 3 signs I ordered for $2100. Then he shows me the other 2 signs that are going to hand outside ( via a lighted box that I had) while trying to put the signs in he says the box is no good and that I need to replace the box?? I said ddnt you check it when you came out the original time to give me a quote?

( This is part of his scam, to get the business, he will quote you a low price then find a way to jack it up at the end) so now what am I going to do?? I ask him how much for another box? He says $700. I said ok, so he decides to take the old box down ( I am sure there is nothing wrong with it, he is going to use it somewhere else) and he takes my signs so he can install it into the sign box and just bring everything with him next time.

So he calls me on monday says the sign box is now $800 plus $25 for tax and he should have it by friday, I give him $400 on my credit card and he says great by friday I will come down and install for you. I call him friday, he say sorry no sign box yet. I asked if he can come Saturday (as when we first met he had mentioned he is so busy that he works 7 days a week) but of course this saturday he is not working. So I text him monday no he calls back he made up some story that the welder did not show up??

Now I am trying to be patient he has my sign, has my money and I can not open our new business. So he promises me first thing in the AM on tuesday, he does call around 11 am on tuesday no message, so I email him asking him whats going on, That I want a receipt for the entire Job, and basically I want my sign or my money back. He tells me I am lying, he has pictures of the sign ( of course you do, you have the sign) then he says he if I continue he will come and rip down the sign that is on the wall??

I say come down I will call the police ( I will be going there after this review) In my opinin do not do business with Derek Yates of Image Signs & More 450 Bolton St New Bedford, MA 02740 774-328-8059 HE IS NOT A LEGITIMATE COMPANY.HE WILL STEEL YOUR MONEY****

Hello Derek Yates of Image Signs & More located at 450 Bolton St New Bedford Ma. 774-328-8059.
Derek you have my sign, my money.... Yes I owe you $400 which Inhave no problem paying to you once you bring all my signs and imstall the box.
just to warn other small business people starting out..... I know you are on a budget like I am..... And when people like Derek Yates of Image signs & more in Mew Bedford take your money thats not cool. Be very careful.
Do not give him any money upfront you will refret it.
He will say he is soo busy, does not know if he can get your job done in time etc...... That is all part of the act to make you give him money ASAP. Please do not fall for it.

Let's see Alex from Guiseppes in providence Rhode Island if you do not have the money to open a business then you should not try to get exspensive signs and stick to your budget but again you give me seven business days on the lowest budget and demand fast service and make irrational decisions and lies your not even the owner and not footing the bill I've asked for this post to be removed and you add to it so until this post is removed or resolved your sign box will be full price with no discounts and every charge that I dropped to try to help you on your budget will be added on ... And this is too consumers good quality don't come fast and cheap and demanding this is unfair especially if you ask for a deal bc your on a budget .. So please when your looking to hire someone please note that custom work takes time and if you can't afford time pleAse don't ask for something you can't wait for ..
