I was ripped off $800 in tortoises from a guy who will remain un-named (you can go look at an old post using my username to search for it if you want to know the full story) because I don't want to send him into hiding.  After complaining to the consumer affairs office in his county (which led to an investigation with no result), now I am wondering if filing a report with the police would help?  I would appreciate everyones advice on this.  One problem is he has no known address at this time, he is on the run from others he ripped off too.
Thanks

I am guessing these were stars? and what were the particulars
did he send you sick animals or animals with extra scutes?
Were they sent at all?
Did you send him money??
I did a search with your user name and came up with the one about the stars , is this the correct one??
I would go to the police with all records of the sale [I am assuming you used a postal M.O. or paypal] 800 is a lot of money to lose <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>

Hey sorry to hear you got ripped, if I were you I would file a police report and get them to look into it. As for the rest of us mabey you should give a name so the rest of us don't get burnt. <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>

Do a search with my username encomapssing the past year. &nbsp;It is the post regarding MAS. &nbsp;

To answer the other posts, he never sent the animals at all. &nbsp;He has burned other people for far more than my measly $800. &nbsp;I guess the police will be the next step then.

Thanks

Well....I'm sorry to hear you got ripped off...but, if you're giving all sorts of "clues" to whom it is....why don't you just come out and say it??? What are you afraid of?? The whole idea of this site is to let people know of the scam-artists "by name"!!

As far as the cops go....I wouldn't hold my breath!! Been there, done that! ....Neil

Toby-

Dude, I just woke up and I'm still too tired to play games. Now is the point where you need to start explaining in detail. That and it's Sunday. I'm too lazy to do a search.

If he is currently on the run from y'all, isn't he already in hiding then?? So why not post his name? Maybe someone here has updated info? Just a thought.

On a separate note (sorry off topic, but piqued my curiosity).

Blkmagic-

In your signature you put "Lawson Reptiles". Are you partnered with Dave Lawson? Just curious. If not, how many "Lawson Reptiles" are there?
