First Choice Reptiles ripped me off

Do not under any circumstances purchase anything from First Choice Reptiles! They took my money for animals they didn't have in stock, took 2 weeks to reply to multiple emails, finally reported to PayPal and was refunded by PayPal, so I repeat do not buy from First Choice Reptiles!

Do you have any pictures of the correspondence showing dates and times?

Were these animals purchased through an automated website or did someone tell you they weren't in stock and there would be a wait for them?

If you got your money back, they technically didn't rip you off.
Based on what you've said so far, it sounds more like you just experienced very poor service, rather than fraud or theft.
Which is still not good, of course.

Based on FCR's reputation if he didn't get a critter then he dodged a large caliber bullet.

PayPal refunded him, not the company. So technically, yes they tried to rip him off.

Need more info, was this an add to cart type situation or did they confirm it was in stock before ordering?

I also made the mistake of ordering from First Choice Reptiles. (I know I should have checked first, but they were the only site I could find with crocodile skinks reportedly "in stock" and I was desperate) It's been three weeks now and they have yet to respond to a single email and their phone has been disconnected. Definitely not a reputable dealer.

If you paid by PayPal or credit card start a dispute.
