Yea! I got my plants back from The Ae Ae scamer

orchidboy01(9b Orlando area)September 16, 2006

Hi all, Just got a package in the mail Friday, To my suprise it was the plants I sent to Deb Kellers. She never claimed them? Did we all scare her? Anyway they were still alive after 1 1/2 months packed in a dark box. What a turn of events? Robert

Congrats Robert! I think you all did the right thing about immediately exposing this scammer on GW; and the linking to the other plant sites on GW so that everyone could see where this person posted.

I'm glad that you got them back and that they're still alive! I think it's a shame that honest people are the ones who have to be worried about being banned by Gardenweb...it should be the other way around! Especially when it was an obvious scammer who ripped off probably close to 25 or 30 people!

Totally cool! I never did send her anything, I thought it funny someone had TONS of a plant we can't even buy! Haven't seen them posting since they got banned, but she/he was banned before and still slipped through.
I'm sure the plants are happy to be back with someone that loves them.
Tally HO!

I have been burnt by several traders over the years here on Gardenweb. So glad you got yours back and they are alive. When they get me they get me good.
