I am not here to ruin anyones name, but I am here to make the public aware of what they may be faced with.  I have never done business with Jody Wooten, but this could have been the easiest deal anyone could ask for.
Below is any and all corrispondance between the two of us.  You can decide for yourself what you would do....I made my mind up though.  If you scroll to the bottom and read it to the top you will read it as it happened.
Brian Oakley

K well if you scroll down and read MY e-mail you find in line 3 where it starts " Well now " you find that I do not guarantee live arrival because I do not trust the mail system. I do trust my packing and ventilation but not the mail system. I can promise you that she is in good health and will have no problem getting there alive but if she is shook too hard or stored outside on a dock in the hot sun for 5 hrs ( ice pack or not ) she may not survive. I do guarantee satisfaction once you get her cause she is a great looking snake but does have the retic personality like I explained in the add of fauna. Well get back to me

Let's not argue, but I clearly said I had no others in mind (meaning NOT shopping around).  DO YOU GUARANTEE LIVE ARRIVAL AND SATISFACTION?
Please scroll down and RE-READ my emails!

The reason I didnt answer any questions in that e-mail is because you said that you may buy something else so the last e-mail was just intended to see if you were still interested in the snake because you thought I was trying to avoid you when I really was just working my ass off and had other things on my mind like my family and my sleep. Well now that we got that out of the way I will give you a garentee on the health of the animal after you recieve it but not on the live arival. The only reason I say that is because if she gets too hot or too cold or gets shaken around by an Idiot ups worker then I have no control over that. If she arrives live witch Im sure she will I will garentee her for a week. I know you wont have any problems with her. As far as the shipping goes you will have to pay for shipping. I dont think I should sell a 500$ animal for 300$ and pay for the shipping. I am already taking a big loss on her now. Well just let me know what you want to do then we will trade addresses. Keep in mind that I am a busy person and I may not get back to you the instant that you mail me. Dont get antsy and get mad at me.

                             Thanks Jody

Well, I appreciate the help you ahve given me, but apparently we will not be able to do business.  I have money, looking to spend, but cannot afford to wait.  I know you have other things in your life besides me, but I have to act now.  Last night I thought we had a deal and now I cannot get a response.  NOTHING personal, but busines is business.
Good luck,
Brian Oakley

Hey Brian, I am 100% positive that she is a female cause I have sexed her and the guy I bought her from who has been a breeder for over 20 years sexed her and she was also recieved from Bob clark as a female. I have no problem with waiting till you see if you have the money cause I am in the same boat when I go to buy something. I would more than likely ship her UPS if thats ok with you. I have had good luck with them in the past so I think we should do it that way. We dont have a delta dash here so we cant do it that way and I am not driving 4hrs to the closest one. How has the weather been there cause it is still in the 80's here and I dont really think she needs a ice pack but if you want me to through one in then I will try to find one somewhere. Well just let me know when you want to do this and we can go from there.



&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Thanks, Jody

Thanks Jody. &nbsp;Are you SURE it is a female? &nbsp;You sexed it yourself? &nbsp;Not doubting you, just understand the whole breeding thing.
PLEASE give me 24 hours. &nbsp;I will MOST likely take her. &nbsp;I have no others in mind AND I DO like how she looks. &nbsp;It is the end of the month and just want to make sure I have my life in order first. &nbsp;I hope you understand. &nbsp;
You guarantee live arrival? &nbsp;
I live in Phx. so it would HAVE TO be next day delivery WITH a small ice pack. &nbsp;Ok with that?
Thanks,
Brian

Hi Jody,
I have been comntemplating your female retic. I would prefer something 1 yr+, but I would like to see you super if you would send me a pic.
I would be adding her to my other retic projects and depending on what she looks like, could be a nice addition.
Anyway, if you would shoot me a pic I would appreciate it. I will not be home until 4pm MST, so do not worry if do not hear from me right away, I will email you back as soon as I get home.
Just out of curiousity, how do you ship?
Thanks in advance!
Brian Oakley- Phx, AZ

Sorry, forgot to include my last reply to Jody.

Here it is........
Jody,
You are in the wrong business/trade. &nbsp;NOBODY will buy from someone who will not guarantee live arrival. &nbsp;If you cannot guarantee that, I STRONGLY suggest you not sell any snakes again. &nbsp;I have been working with snakes for 15 years. &nbsp;I HAVE replaced a few, yes, but that is the risk you take. &nbsp;I cannot force you to think otherwise, but I can make my own decisions and my decision is not to buy from you.
Good luck!
Brian

Of course this is my opinion.
Brian Oakley

Well, I read through the post and emails pretty quickly, so I may have missed something, but I am not sure why you are mad?<img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>? &nbsp; The emails make you sound like an anxious buyer who wants his questions answered yesterday, and even when they are answered, you still are not satisfied and sometimes miss the answer and reask the question. &nbsp; I you want guaranteed live arrival, then MOVE ON. &nbsp; They do not have to play by YOUR rules. &nbsp; Just my opinion.

Dave Reid,
who does by the way guarantee live arrival.

Brian-

I don't understand why you are even posting this really. Just because Jody does not guarantee live arrival? I believe that is his prerogative (sp?), it certainly does not make him a bad guy. Perhaps I am missing something here, was there some other reason for your post?

Like I said, I am not here to bash anyone. &nbsp;YES, my point is that he doe snot guarantee live arrival. &nbsp;I PERSONALLY think that is a MAJOR part of any deal. &nbsp;I have (and told him) I am moving on. &nbsp;I am not mad, it is not that I did not get my way. &nbsp;
The ONLY part that a buyer should be aware of is that if you buy from him and it is dead, you are screwed. &nbsp;I would like to be made aware of this if I were a potentail customer so that is what I am doing......making you all aware.
Jody has been very honest with me from what I can tell, I Just chose not to buy because of his guarantee/lack of guarantee.

All you had to say was that they did not offer a live arrival guarantee instead of having us guess at what the problem was. &nbsp;In my opinion, you should not have posted anything. &nbsp;I think you gave yourself the black eye...

Brian,
You really jumped the gun here. He told you straight up "No Guarentee of live arrival" Thats his terms plain & simple either you accept them or move on. Your attempt to discredit him because you didn't get your way is BS & a waste of a post. Not getting your way isn't a reason to post a beware of someone.

I would agree with the previous posters Brian. &nbsp;Ask your questions, get your answers, make a decision and move on. &nbsp;Jody has done nothing wrong and you have unneccesarily impuned someones reputation

Gosh really makes you wonder why people even get on fauna for. I was at least honest with him and told him that I did not guarantee live arrival. Some people really piss me off cause they are only in this to look for the bad in people. I simply am selling a snake that I do not have the time for. Being as that I dont have the time to care for the snake I for 1 am doing the snake a favor by trying to sell her to some one that will take good care of her and 2 if I dont have time to take care of the snake why would I have time to sit around and answer e-mails as soon as they come to my computer. Well I dont know what his problem is but I am now glad that I didnt sell her to him. This is a superb snake and I am selling her for a low price so I can get her into a home that will take care of her in the way that she deserves. Well thanks for your support from all that posted and Brian lets just agree to dissagree ok?

I don't agree with everything Jody has said or done in the past, but it is not wrong for him to refuse a live arrival guarantee. &nbsp;I do guarantee such, and I wouldn't buy from someone who didn't, but Jody is not in the wrong for this, in my opinion.
