Adrian Cieslak Florence, SC from Ashley Pets

Adrian Cieslak, Florence SC, (404) 483-2542. This guy was adamant he didn't want PayPal and said he was the real deal. I agreed to his Walmart money transfer and he received the money but has not shipped 4.4 EBT in almost 2 weeks due to "family energency". Apparently he owns a pet shop called Ashley Pets in South Carolina. I asked for a refund or the turtles with a 4 day notice. He stopped replying to me. Then I discovered he sold the turtles to someone else and still kept my money. He tells me most of the turtles look sick.

This guy is a fraud, do not buy from him. This is sadly the first and hopefully last time I will ever have to post a scammer here.

On FB there's a group called "turtle and tortoise seller reviews (BOI)" and another guy says he was also scammed out of $1000 and never received anything. What a sad day. Wish someone would've warned me about this guy.

Actually, he did warn you himself when he wanted to get around a payment method that would make him responsible for his actions.....

Hate to say it, but you missed some red flags there for sure.

Also, posting any actual evidence you have about this would help greatly.

Please name the person you are referring to in your third paragraph, Jeff, to avoid issues pertaining to an anonymous third-party quotation (one of the rules is to not have quotations without attribution).

The response Adrian went with after this thread was made known to him was to create a second account using the registration details for Emma Smith under the username of Bosshog. That account was discovered as a duplicate right away and was merged into the original account accordingly.

It really does not look so hot when people do that sort of thing.

That is a very polite way of saying it.

I trust that there will be no further lapses in compliance with the rules, Jeff.

I am including this to secure the information for the benefit of readers/members who might otherwise not be able to view this in the event of removal. This was not my obligation.

Did the other guy he sold the turtles to actually receive the turtles?
Has anyone alerted F&G in South Carolina that he could be poaching and selling native wild life?
