It did not sit for hours. How would the seller even know that? He also tried to blame me for killing it as I was gently flipping it around in a video to show it was dead.

I think you should initiate a BOI thread, with names and evidence. His point of view of the issue is different than yours.

Was it a LAG if signed for on first attempt to deliver .. and if not LAG is voided ... he did refund cost of spider correct? When was animal delivered and when did you unpack and discover dead?

I don't believe I have any solid proof to argue against him at this point, and I don't really want to waste anymore time over shipping charges. Unfortunately, there was a 2 hr delay from the time I sent him the video and the package being delivered which is why he is probably saying it sat out for hours. I had to wait for my wife to bring it from our house to my facility which is why there was a delay in me contacting him. She was home to receive it though. I didn't take the video until 11:52am according to the time stamp, and it was delivered around 9:40.

That’s a tough call. I probably would have rolled the dice and stood by the guarantee. Next day delivery is usually reliable enough that I won’t think twice about it. But i’ve gotten burned before on similar situations. Best you can do is mark the package with enough “live product” stickers that the carrier gets the idea that this package should not be stored in excessively cold or hot areas.

I believe it is a better than even chance that this is just a spammer trying to establish a toehold before launching the spam attack. It is pretty common for them to post in really old threads. I guess perhaps they believe such threads are not being monitored and they can skate in under the radar.

IP address points to Canada from a hosting company I have seen LOTS of spammers use.

Sometimes I give them the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes I don't.

Yep it was a spambot that just grabs content from other users and reposts it. Have seen similar activity on other forums.
