I had ordered a babie male blood python from Danielle Fields ..She told me she would ship it out last Thursday,for friday morrning delivery. Why in the hell would you ship on a thursday? If somthing went wrong with the carrier It coul dhave been stuck god knows where over the weekend. Not very smart thinking.
But when i awoke friday morrning to get my baby boy, I checked my e-mail..and on Friday morrning she wrote to me saying could not shipp due to fedex Delayes. She couldnt of told me that thursday? So I e-mailed her back saying That if it is not shipped early next week that i want my money back. So she wrote back saying that she would ship it monday for tuesday delivery. I wake up today..and nothing.. Waited around.. Nothing ..Emailed her.. nothing.. Called her.... nothing.. What am i sopose to do? Cause i think i just got scammed and am out of $130.

Lexi,

I've read that Danielle Fields has a REALLY bad reputation. The people on the BOI say that they sell other peoples animals. So, they are probably waiting to get the python into their facility before they can ship it out to you. Check the BOI.

For me, shipping on Thursday throws up red flags. It shows that a breeder/seller doesn't care about their animals because as you stated "It could have been stuck god knows where over the weekend. ". Also, imagine the stress on an animal that was first shipped to one location, then turned around and shipped to you.

Hmm. Well, you don't want to have bad blood with this person if possible. I already made that mistake with first choice reptiles on a previous sale.

How long have you waited?

I'd contact your bank, just to let them know that you're having a problem with someone who is not delivering an item you paid for and then give it another week before you take action. How did you pay for this? Paypal or over the phone?

Don't let this guy know that you're going to press charges or anything like that. You'll just make the situation worse. Be as friendly as possible and send some emails every other day telling him how great it was to business with him and how you've set up such a nice enclosure and on and on and on. Just keep bothering him with more and more emails so he doesn't have the opportunity to ignore you.

I don't know if any of that helps.

Best of luck

-Chris

You knew about their BOI reputation before dealing with them?

At least you did it through the credit card company. If nothing else you can file a fraud claim and hopefully get your money back. Personally, I would give them one last email stating that you need to talk to them within the next 24 hours and if you do not, then you will be reversing the charges. Good luck!

She is a scammer, and just changed her name not long ago so she could keep selling animals.

Guys, please check with someone before dealing with people, either check the BOI of ask me, I will be more than happy to hook you up with one of the good guys.

BTW, Danielle Fields is also selling import tegus as CBs, there is no one in the US that has babies this early.

Umm Lex... you do realize that Exotics Reptiles Jungle is the king of douchebags, Andy. He's the ass who called me threatening to take me to court for slander after I called him out on the croc monitor we all saw and posted about here. You need to be really careful. If you wanted a blood, you should have called Ben. I know breeders of independent animals, but when I need something that I don't know any big breeders, I go straight to Ben Segal. Prices are good, and he puts up with no Bull ****. If the bloods are WC then they are 60 bucks and he says they're wC and mean as hell, if they're CB, he says so. Now I hope that my typing has not taken the tone that I'm trying to be a jerk, because I'm not, but I don't play games with people I don't know. Andy is the king of pricks in my book, I wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire.

Damn Lexi, that sucks.
Dont know if Kingsnake.com will do anything about it (im assuming that's where they had the ad posted) but you can report it to them as well as your CC company and the fauna BOI. I would wait a bit to see what happens of course. Best of luck.

Lexi, I feel for you, I really do, I know how that feels, and I still feel it
anyway, just keep coming at this person, and do it until s/he agrees to do what you tell him to do

if I were you Lexi, I would just call the credit card company and say that you have uncovered that it is likely a scam, and that you haven't heard from them in over 4 days. Even if they will get around to selling you a snake, it probably won't be a healthy one. Just get your money back and support one of the good guys. good luck!

I agree with nat. Be sure to document and save everything too. If possible record any phone conversations or even your attempts to contact. If worst comes to worst and you don't get your money back.. Find out where they live and let a louisville slugger do the talking. Jk.. kinda. Kingsnake won't do a darn thing. And paypal neither if that was your payment method. Unless you paid for insurance. Been there done that. Goodluck and let them know who they are messin with.
