Warning! James Wollitz

Last week I was going through reptibid looking at anoles......I noticed a guy selling brown anoles out of florida. I looked at the questions/answers post part of the auction and noticed immediately that he was slow in responding to other people's ?'s. I watched the auction over a few days to see how it progressed. The 3rd day I noticed that he finally replied and one of the replies was (almost a quote), " I am tired of calculating shipping if you want to know what it is to your area here is my zip code do it yourself." My eyebrows raised and I thought, hmmmm a little harsh. The next day someone else must have thought it too and told him in no uncertain terms that he had a bad attitude and that if he was going to be around the herp community he was going to have to take a little more time with people and that he might want to tone down his attitude a little. Well the auction closed and I did not even bid on it......Two days later A guy emails me and asks me to take over the auction for him citing family problems(he had won the auction). I agreed, only to help him out, even though I had bad feelings in the beginning. Over the last four days I have tried to work out the details with the seller. I emailed him telling him that the guy had asked me to take over and waited for two days to get a ONE SENTENCE reply. Now mind you that the total of the sale was miniscule compared to what I and others spend on our herps, but his reply was "yea the total is $20 dollars." I replied asking him if he was still holding the original animals from the auction or if he was going to catch more when I sent him the money as well as confirming the total because from what the other guy said the total he gave me did not include shipping. Two days later I get another one sentence reply,"Yea 20 but not including shipping." still not asnswering my ?"s. I pressed a little harder in the next email to get my ?'s answered and he sends me," i really dont need your money, its a measly 20 bucks. if your going to be a smart ass, i dont need you." I was blown away because I was just trying to help someone out so that they could keep their good name. Well needless to say I blasted him in the next email and said some things that I would probably take warning points for here, so I won't post it at this time. Moral of the story is beware of JAMES WOLLITZ. He did not get any of my money, but I have been around the block a couple of times and can see bad things on his horizon. He has a lot of lesson's to learn yet. If you deal with him proceed with caution.

What exactly do you mean "A guy emails me and asks me to take over the auction for him citing family problems "? I am bit confused on how a stranger out of the blue wrote you and asked that................. I would assume you don't know each other as you referred to him as " A guy".

I don't want to jump to conclusions but something does not seem right with all that.

Thumbs up Business with James Wollitz

We just did a trade. My Dumeril's female for three breeding rat snakes (1.2). I couldn't ask for a better transaction. He was polite and answered all questions with haste and professionalism. One female is gravid and the others are in top notch health. I would deal with him again in a heartbeat.

Well thats just awesome! Do you know whats more awesome? That you..as a brand new fauna member...knew to follow the rules of posting by adding your positive experience to this existing thread without creating a new one. I've never seen this happen before. Normally all bona fide newbies to the BOI make that simple mistake and start a new one.

Say...while I have you here....what shipper was used?

Welcome to fauna....

I have had a transaction with james also. I sold him a boa and he kept in constant contact with me. He did everything that he said he would do. He took a little while to pay but he always emailed me back very quickly.

Brian, I am a little bit confused ...

I read your posts, and I guess there was a need to open a thread to warn people that this guy is really unpleasant on anole deals, and:

It doesn't seem that your help was appreciated, and while I don't think it savvy to blow off winning bids on anoles, I don't see a a whole lot of meat on the bone here, if someone just "refused your help". The seller's responses defy logic, were impolite, etc, but after seeing the atitude in the bid responses, and then the first dis-interested response when communicating directly with you, why continue with someone like this? I am also curious, as others here, since it is how you got involved, how you took over the details for someone else? But fear not, for I will not waste any time trying to rescue the seller from himself!
