Thumbs down Brandon of Newline Reptiles?

Hey Everyone,

Well about 1.5 - 2 years ago i had a bunch of inverts for sale and Brandon of Newline Reptiles was interested in pretty much all of them. Well, the first time i dealt with him was actually quite a pleasant experience. I sold him a bunch of scorps and tarantulas for $100. He lived in Kingston Ontario and I lived in Ottawa and i wasnt comfortable with shipping so he told me to stop by his friends (Jim Wilkinson) shop and he (Jim) would have the money ready for me (which he did) and that went by smoothly. After that, about a month or so, he traded me a 5' male BCI for an unknown giant tarantula, and some other invertebrates I had. That went by smoothly too.
However, this had deceived me. About 3 weeks later i had a monstrous 11" vietnamese centipede and a baby leopard gecko up for sale. Brandon of course inquired about them and we set a price of $55 for both of them. He told me that he would be able to pick them up at my place as he was coming to town within the next 2 weeks so i waited the 2 weeks and at the end i was starting to get the feeling that maybe brandon wasnt interested anymore, so before posting them back up for sale, i asked jim if he had heard from brandon and he told me that brandon was in town and left 2 hours before i had talked to him! 2 days later Brandon came online and we talked and he said he was still interested in them and he would like me to drop them off with Jim as he was going to Kingston to meet up with Brandon very soon. So i said "sure, no problem, i dont see anything wrong with that". So i went to drop them off and when i got there jim had no money and told me i could just leave them with him and brandon would pay me back on a later date. Well...thinking to myself that from my first 2 experiences dealing with him, he seemed like a decent guy (WRONG!) and without thinking, i left the centipede and gecko with jim. I talked to Brandon online a few days later and he said he had received them and he would pay me back "soon".
Well that "soon" never came by and he just stopped coming online and everytime i called, his wife would pick up and say hes not home. He never replied to the emails i sent him either, so knowing that Jim was one of his "close buddies" (i didnt know they worked together to screw over other people tho) i had a little chat with him and he told me that i better be careful and that i was on thin ice! wtf is that suppose to mean? He then blocked me on msn and same with brandon. So in the end i lost $55....not only that i was also told that jim and brandon were part of the hells angels and id better be careful...HAHAHAHA wat a joke!
I have learned a valuable lesson and that there arent many people that you can trust! I hope this gets spread around the canadian herp community so no one else gets screwed by this loser.

LMAO...running from the angels is more like it...literally...

They are both winners. I had dealt with both of them and they didn't get the chance to burn me. They were good for a period of time and just went bad about 2 years ago. You won't see the money, and I am sorry that you had the misfortune of dealing with these guys, but you are very lucky that you only came out -55 bucks. Others have come out a lot worse and hopefully they will give their feedback here as well.

sorry to hear about your misfortunes with him guys. And did he really climb out of his window and take off on his bike? LOL! Man, i sure hope he gets his ass handed to him by the angles. I remember this one time he and his wife tried to sound like tough guys by naming all the "city leaders" of the angels...I know i wont get a cent from that poor bastard, he probably lives in a shed he built by himself and probably uses all the money he got from selling stolen goods as drug money. Anyway, i hope no one ever deals with this scum bag...ever...I'd like to hear other people's stories though.

Yes, they are a part of nothing because they are LOSERS and LONERS, but even if they would we go abouts in even collecting our money?

its called small claims court

or the police but you need proof with the police

courts you need proof too, but im betting they wouldnt show and you would get your judgement then you just send the sheriff to go collect the judgement.

small claims is up to $10 000 so you file for $10 000 and see what the judge says, hell you can even lie about the amounts the screwed you for.
