Pat Kline - snared99

In search of a new pet, I came across the user snared99 from faunaclassifieds, a website I've never been on before that. There, found a bearded dragon he was selling. The dragon was stated as being healthy and ready to breed. From the picture, the dragon looked fine. I contacted him, paid him, and he sent the bearded dragon. When the animal arrived, I was so excited I happily emailed the user that he arrived safely, and it was a beautiful animal. I got no response. I did notice that the dragon was taking in big gulps of air, and struggling to breathe. Later that day I also noticed the dragon kept shivering, and I did a bit of research. I figured it was because the dragon was raised without proper UVB, and it could be corrected over time. The next day, the dragon's condition worsened. He was shivering more frequently, and struggling to breathe. I considered taking him to the vet but figured he'd be fine, which was a mistake. I thought maybe this dragon has always breathed like that, I've never had a sick bearded dragon like this. I really wish I had done more research.
Suddenly in the evening, the dragon began having seizures, he looked to be choking. His arms and legs were squirming and his mouth was wide open gasping for air. I wanted to take him to a vet immediately but the only reptile vet near me was closed that late. He struggled in pain for about 3 hours. After the struggle he passed away. I was so distraught I asked others what was wrong with him, and a reputable breeder told me he had upper respiratory disease. This man sold me a sick animal, and it's contagious, so I pray to God my other bearded dragons didn't catch it. I own 3 other adult bearded dragons and have kept dragons for 3 years, I know what I'm doing when it comes to husbandry.
The dragon I was sold, I housed alone, with correct temps, UVB, ect, there is absolutely no reason he should have died with me. As soon as I opened the packaged he was wheezing and shivering, and coughing. The dragon also was missing a toe, which was not stated by the seller. This user knowingly sent me this sick and dying dragon. And despite all that, he is sending me emails guilt tripping me, telling me it's my fault the animal died, and telling me he has a daughter and cannot refund me. Do not do business with this user. I was told by another user that she was given a photoshopped image of a dragon, which I confirmed was photoshopped as well. snared99 has since deleted the sales post containing my dragon that passed away, and the photoshopped one.
snared99 also emailed to tell me he is making a post about how I'm the one out of place, when I simply made a post to a facebook group making a gofundme for the dragon's vet care in the morning, which I shut down because he didn't make it through the night. And I also posted a bad review to his breeding page, which I believe he truly deserved.

Here is an image of the dragon I was sold struggling to breathe, only a day after being sent to me:
