Dan Margot

So back in October of last year, Dan Margot had posted an ad on a Canadian Reptile forum selling a trio of Aurora House snakes. I inquired about them to see what kind of deal I could get if I bought all three. Here are the emails we sent back and forth throughout most of the transaction. Things went really smooth for the most part up until the shipping day.


Daniel Margot 10/30/15
Hey man I cannot go lower than $250 each unfortunately. Dan On 10/30/15,


Gary Leverton 10/30/15
Can you ship with reptile express?


Gary Leverton 10/30/15
I will take all 3 if you can ship with reptile express.

to me
I am happy to ship with reptile express at your cost. I am an importer/exporter so I will ship anywhere. Where are you based?


Regards
Dan

shipping will be yet ill pack as small as possible. If you EMT me a
75% deposit they are yours. Once shipping cost is verified ill let you

to Daniel
Cool thanks.


From here on out we communicated via text.

Nov. 7/15
Dan sends me pics of the 3 house snakes.
I thanks him.

Nov 11/15
Dan sends me a picture of the Reptile Express shipping box and lets me know that he will either ship out on Mon, Tue, or Wed.
I thank him again.

Nov. 14/15
Dan lets me know he will be shipping on Monday. He also asks if I am able to take a phone call.
I take a call from Dan moments later. He states that he will only be sending me 2 snakes in the shipment because one of the 3 wasn't doing so well. He said if it starts to pick up and start eating again he would ship it at another date. He also said if it doesn't end up eating he would send me a refund for the 3rd snake.
I agree to that arrangement.

Nov. 16/15
Dan ships the 2 snakes.

Nov. 17/15
The snakes arrive between 3:40 pm - 3:50 pm. I open up the box as soon as it arrives. To my surprise, both snakes have died. I text Dan immediately after I have confirmed they were dead at 4:00 pm. He tells me he will get in touch with reptile express.

Nov. 20/15
I don't hear back from Dan for a couple days. I send him a text asking if he heard back from Reptiles Express. He responds over an hour later stating that "They are not wanting to refund any money. Im nursing this little one but still hasn't taken any food. I'll start plans to refund for the snakes next week."
I thank him.

Dec. 1/15
I hear nothing from Dan for over a week. I text him "You wouldn't have a date as to when?"
He apologizes for not responding and says he was called out to work for an emergency. He says he will send money as soon as he gets home on the following Monday.
I thank him.

Dec. 12/15
Over a week and I haven't heard back from Dan. I send him a text reminding him just in case he may have forgotten. He assures me he has not forgotten and promises money the next night.
I thank him.

Dec. 15/15
Dan sends me a text stating he still hasn't forgotten about the refund. He says he had someone that was supposed to pick up snakes over the weekend but the sale was postponed. He says that the person will be picking up snakes on Thursday and will send me money as soon as he gets it.
I thank him.

Dec. 22/15
Dan sends me a text stating that the snakes will be picked up this week. He will send me money as he gets it.
I thank him.

From this point, our texting back and forth stops. I try sending him a text on Jan 19/15 stating "So it's been a few weeks. Just wondering what's happening? Did that 3rd one start eating?" I don't get a response.
I haven't heard a word since Dec. 22/15.

I'm not upset about not being refunded for the 2 snakes that died. It was never agreed that if they did die he would refund me. What does upset me is the fact that I paid for all three snakes and never did get the 3rd one. He most likely was refunded the shipping cost by reptile express as well which I paid for. I am now out 366.00 that doesn't include the cost of the 2 snakes that died (which was another 500.00).

Any update on this?

you could also try to contact Sam at reptiles express and see if he even bothered with a claim, and maybe they can tell you if he did get a refund which would make this guy a thief for keeping the refund $ and the third snake.
