Are you referring to me calling him a scammer ?If so I do apologize I just was looking out for the other sellers the guy sent me fake money order looking for me to deposit it and send a third party a Walmart money order please tell me how I should go about this in future.

No, a scammer is what a person who runs scams is, so I have no issue with calling a scammer a scammer (like a person who flies a plane is a pilot). The dirt bag, scumbag, and bastard stuff needs to cease, however, and multiple people have been making those comments.

I received a similar email today. Slightly different email address but same content almost to the word, and the address looks like it could be some derivative of the original one:

I attached the email. It reads like the same person. I could be wrong, but if the guy is emailing stuff out again, I'm sure he will try a few different ways.

The best you can do with these scammers is give them the run around. Ask for the info to deposit the money you owe them that they "overpaid" and pretend like your actually at the bank deposting the money. I can't stand these people, especially those that target the reptile community.

Yes that's them they have contacted me twice so far

Yep, same guy contacted me about the Phyllobates terribilis group that I posted. The exact same messages he sent to you guys. Said that his assistant overpaid me and that he needed X amount back, via WalMart to WalMart transfer.

Straight from the guy:

"Here is the details you need to have my balance sent via wall mart to wall mart transfer and get back to me with the reference number and total amount sent after charges RECEIVER'S NAME :JOHNSON JOSEPH CITY : SPRINGFIELD STATE : OREGON ZIP CODE :97477 COUNTRY...USA"

Just wanted to get that block of text out there, if it can be used by anyone. Also, his number he was texting me through was 708-467-9137, and his email
