Northeast Reptiles?

I saw this ad on kingsnake and just thought it was too good to be true...
http://market.kingsnake.com/detail.php?cat=32&de=647985
A 100% het caramel 66% het ghost female for $200? That's a pretty good price.

I checked out their website and there it says that they have 50% het caramels and 50% het ghost females for $200. In fact, I can't find a single 100% het ball python on their site! Plus, they have a number of 25% het balls, which is just a personal pet peeve of mine.

So at this point I'm a little suspicious...a price that's too good to be true on ks, a price that's ridiculous on their website, and not even a single 100% het? According to their website they've been in business out of CT since 2002, but I can't find a single thing on them here on fauna.

Now, this is all going by gut feeling, but I thought I'd at least bring it up here and see if anyone else has done business or heard of these guys.

Also, at least one of their photos is clearly photoshopped. (Killer bee, under the ball python gallery).

Ok, they have a number of ads on Kingsnake. One contains an e-mail address for eastcoastreptileexchange@yahoo.com, which did not show any significant results in any searches. I'm not sure what to think at this point, it's possible that the website is brand new and needs to be touched up. BUT, it still gives me the same impression that those OH-based scam websites did.

Were you able to find out anymore about these guys? I'm interested in another ad they recently posted on KS but also noticed all the 50% and 25% hets on their website.

I bought a ghost boa from Randy back in November. She's healthy and eats regularly. I am very satisfied by my purchase.

I haven't garnered any real information about them. I did notice that a little while after posting this inquiry, Randy had posted some possible het caramel possible het ghost females for $200. The exact same price as his 100% het caramel possible het ghost females from his earlier ads.

I e-mailed him asking why he was now selling possible het glow females for the EXACT SAME PRICE as he was selling 100% het caramel possible het ghost females. Rather than answer the question, he only responded with what stock he had left. I reiterated my question and he never responded. I'd be very skeptical of ordering any hets or possible hets from him, given his ads and my very limited correspondence with him.

Ms. Hughes,
What was the seller's full name?
