Derek Roberts?

If the name is Derek Roberts. Keep your money, he scammed of us of over $200 CAD. We were to purchase 3.1 mangrove snakes from him. Once we sent the money, he told us they were looking bad and would refund us. That was last year we are still waiting. I think he thought we were an easy target because we are Canadian. Please avoid Derek Roberts at all costs. He has scammed several people look for his name in the BOI.

We have all emails and we called him several times too.

That's him.

I just checked our emails and the zip code matches up. That's the same guy who scammed us.

I just looked him up in the BOI, because I am sure he has pulled off a similar stunt to someone else.

If he'd like to make ammends and refund us the monies he owes for 3.1 mangrove snakes for $110 shipped. It would be very much appreciated.

possible turn around?

I see, unless this man is just dragging this out, however he is not stealing my money, but he did have some good things to say in email.

Hey,

Whover Katt is I don't know. I did advertise and receive money from someone in Canada by the name of Vanan. He sent $110 dollars for the snakes and I have not been able to refund his money since I do not have his mailing address. Wrong person, wrong amount of money. If you would like to see who all I scammed on the BOI, look under "reptilesby3113" and see. That is my former e-mail address and what was used on the BOI before I stopped visiting that site as often as I used to. If you would like, plese inform whoever was looking for me of my new e-mail address. As for references, here are some:

I hope these references help. If not and you still wnat them but still deem me untrustworthy, then I will ship them to you first and you can pay me after they arrive. If you do not like them, then I will pay for shipping on their way back and you are out nothing. My home number is 520-544-0801. Take care. Derek

That doesnt make any sense to me, hes trying to look good, now hes telling me who he scammed?

Either way...i know most of those references, and I really appreciate the fact that he would ship first.

Id appreciate some more input of what to do or think here.

Thanks
Chris

I found a few threads when I did a search. Not much information on Derek's animals, but three different threads in which people had fairly major problems with his communication.

Yup

Vanan is my better half. I frequent forums more often and so am the vocal person.

Yes, my mistake is that, not been scamming but major communication problems experienced by other people. Jumped the gun on that one, but because of this deal and not having received our refund we are now extremely wary of dealing with American sellers. My apologies on posting misinformation.

An email has been sent with our mailing address, which we have sent and we have also made previous phone calls. I will let the BOI know when we receive the refund. We still have the receipt for the original MO we sent to him.

If we receive our refund, then I'd be more than happy to retract my previous statements and finish this as a happy customer. We did contact Mr. Roberts telling him we would go to the BOI if he did not get into contact with us.

New email address

If you could let me know Mr. Roberts new email address, I'll be sure to let Vanan know of it and get him to send for his refund. Thank you everyone for your help.
