Someone that had tools advertised on Craigslist listed his location as Oaktown in the ad. I sent an e-mail asking where he was located because the last time I was there, Oaktown had about 20 or 30 houses. His reply - "I'm located in oaktown which is about 52 miles south of terre haute on route 41".

What does he expect me to do; just start knocking on doors until I find the right house? I sent him a reply - "I know where Oaktown is, but the last time I went through, there was more than 1 house."

He also said in his e-mail that he had sold the tools I was interested in, but I replied anyways to try to wake him up.

Maybe since he had already sold the tools he didn't want to tell anyone else where he lived.

He had sold only 6 of the 100+ items he had advertised.

He did send another e-mail with his address. He said most people say "Where is Oaktown". I get that a lot also when I tell people I live in Odon.

Here is a true story for you.
A local person to me.  Put a car up for sale on Fleabay,  A buyer contacted the local person and asked if they could come and look at the car before the auction closed.  Buyer says "sure".
So a couple fella's come and look at the car.  They tell seller it's nice but no thanks.  Next morning the car is gone.  STOLEN.  They caught the thieves. 

Yes, you guessed it, the same fella's that came and looked at the car stole it.

Of course in your situation, It could possible be reversed, the tools may have been stolen and you sounded too "official" (if you can say such a thing).   Never really know, it takes all kinds.  Get someone else to call and see if they get the same treatment.
