Inquiry: CaptiveBred@hotmail.com, Heavy Petting (KS)

Looking for info on captivebred@hotmail.com also goes by Heavy Petting in Kingsnake.com. I want to buy something from him but want to make sure that he is on the up and up. I can't find anything on here! Thanks in advance.

Don't do it!

I had a TERRIBLE deal with him. I paid, he never shipped (each time he was supposed to) and kept giving me excuses. I finally had to file a complaint to get a refund. Thankfully I paid with a credit card.

I would steer clear of him.

He also uses the name Alex Harris and has used candysreptiles@hotmail.com in addition to James Harris and captivebred@hotmail.com

Different emails, different names, and a bad experience.

That about sums up my dealing with him.

I got a response back from him saying oh well you can't please everyone so I don't think I am going to be buying anything from him I appreciate the input

Can't please everyone. What a joke. Maybe if he actually sent the animal instead of giving nothing but excuses he wouldn't have someone who wasn't pleased with him.

This is my fault for not checking up on this guy before sale...so I guess I deserved what i got to an extent..

This guy is something else...
He advertised on kingsnake a 6ft+ pair of adult Leucistic Rats, I been wanting a big pair for a long time..In the pictures from the add the animals looked to be in good shape etc..
I paid for them via paypal and asked specifically to ship monday for tues. we'll come late monday I get an email that he didn't ship and was going to the next day via fedex. I asked him to email me the tracking which he never didn nor did he email me letting me know he shipped.

This is what I got via DHL not Fedex in 100 heat...lucky they survived the trip and there were no delays!!
2 5ft Rats..one bug eyed, not 6ft+ animals as promised
Both slightly skinny ( not too bad)
female has several bite marks on the back ( could be from breeding or feeding)
A cardboad box
No insultion, very little padding ,no gel pack which I requested due to the fact were in 100 heat
a pillowcase full of holes
I emailed him back saying I was unhappy and to reconcile please send me 75.00
This was his response below...what absolute garbage.. I really like the part about how your not supposed to feed a female after she lays LOLOLOL!!



Quote:
FIRST OF ALL MY FEDEX ACCOUNT WAS TIED UP WHERE THEY HAVE NOT CREDIT MY
PAYMENT TO MY ACCOUNT YET SO I HAD TO USE DHL BY 10:30 OR YOU WOULD HAVE HAD
TO WAIT UNTIL MONDAY I PUT THEM IN THE BOX WITH A THIN PILLOW CASE SO THEY
COULD BREATH IN THE BOX I USED A THIN CARDBOARD BOX WITH EXTRA HOLES IN IT
SO THEY COULD GET AIR I OWN A PET STORE IN CHATTANOOGA AND I HAVE SHIPPED
SNAKES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR THE PAST TWEENTY YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A
PROBLEM WHEN I POSTED THEM I MENT TO SAY 5 FOOT NOT SIX AND I AM VERY SORRY
ABOUT THAT I DID NOT BREAK OUT MY YARDSTICK AND SIZE THEM UP BUT THEY ARE
100% HEALTHY AND HAVE NEVER BEEN BITTEN BY A RAT BECAUSE THEY HAVE EATEN F/T
RATS THERE WHOLE LIFE ACCECPT WHEN THEY WERE NEONATES AND ATE PINKIE MICE
AND NO MITES BECAUSE THEY EAT F/T SO THERE IS NO WAY THEY HAVE EVER BEEN
BITTEN BY A RAT THE MARKS YOU SEE ARE WHERE THE MALE BITES HER WHEN THEY
BREED THIS PAIR HAS DOUBLE CLUTCHED FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS PERIOD.THEY ARE
NOT UNDER WEIGHT THEY ARE FED EVERY 7-10 DAYS I DO NOT POWER FEED THEM AS
THEY DONT BREED WELL WHEN FED HEAVY AND IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BREEDING
SNAKES YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN NOT GET THEM TO DOUBLE CLUTH IF YOU FEED THEM
AFTER THEY DROP EEGS WHEN THEY ARE GRAVID YOU HAVE TO FEED THE FEMALE HALF
SIZE MEALS AND NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN SHE WONT EVEN TAKE IT FAT BREEDERS DONT
BREED WELL.JUST LIKE PEOPLE THEY GET LAZY AND WANT SIT AROUND AND DIGEST
FOOD INSTEAD OF BREEDING
SO FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS FOR FOUR MONTHS OUT OF EACH YEAR SHE HAS BEEN
GRAVID SO SHE HAS NOT PUT ON ALOT OF SIZE IF YOU WANTED FAT SNAKES FOR PETS
AND NOT BREEDRES YOU COULD HAVE GONE TO PETSMART AND GOT YOU SOME FAT OVER
FED SNAKES.
BUT YOU WANTED SNAKES THAT WOULD BREED AND THATS WHAT YOU GOT IF YOU DONT
WANT THEM WHEN I GET BACK IN TOWN NEXT WEEK YOU CAN SHIP THEM BACK TO ME AND
IF THEY COME BACK IN THE SAME SHAPE THAT I SENT THEM TO YOU IN I WILL GIVE
YOU YOUR MONEY BACK AND PAY FOR SHIPPING THEM

I am not here seeking any refund nor do I want to send them back and risk loosing the snakes and my cash, past eperiences have taught me to play it safe with fellers like this.I am here posting this as a warning to others..buyer beware... Sad that he would pay 50.00 to send them back but not an additional 25.00 to please a customer they rubbed the wrong way. I am very lucky to recieve animals that were alive due to the way he shipped, they could of been cooked ,crushed or both.
