Thanks for posting the text messages Brandon. Can you please give me your thoughts on the above question. Thanks

He spoke clear English nothing that would suspect me of a foreigner. I ask him why he was getting rid of the animal . He said he needed to make room because he breeds croc monitors.

Thank you.
Even though you sent the money "family & friends" with Paypal, have you inquired with them about a refund?

Yes , I called multiple times explaining that I really didn’t know the difference. I assumed friends and family didn’t have the fees that’s it . PayPal said because it was friend and family it didn’t qualify for protection

So many red flags...
Sorry for your loss, the world appears to be getting more cruel and depraved by the minute.
If these scammers put as much effort into real breeding and sales as they did scamming I am sure they would still do very well and be a respected helpful part of our community.

Sorry to hear. Please post as much information as you can, the more the better. Contact info, details, screen shots, etc. Even if you think it means nothing, it very well could be something important.

How did they contact you?
WHY did they contact you?
Where did you send money to?
Did they contact you directly on Fauna?
Etc.

I believe I was just scammed by him as well. How do we keep these people off this site? For me, I dealt with the name Jeremy Thompson, but Melissa Faulkner was who the payment went to.

As a site we can enforce the site rules.
As a member of the site, individuals can take precautions to protect themselves as they do online purchases. This is true for any online purchases, not just here on Fauna.

I see that 'you' posted your phone number in an ad.
This particular scammer sits and waits for members new and old to post their personal information. They in turn contact you directly based on your 'exposed' phone number or email address. In many cases the scammers are not even members of Fauna, they are simply viewing the site as a 'guest'.

Fauna offers you the ability to use it's internal: Private Message system.
Fauna offers you the ability to use the Board of Inquiry to research sellers 'before' you send them your money.
Fauna can not, nor does it attempt to replace good ol' fashioned common sense and self preservation.

Board of Inquiry 'first', buy or sell 'second'.
