EBbay Listing from familiar seller
I have been a successful bidder for items listed on Ebay by 4 different Fig Forum members and have received beautiful plants in each case.
This morning, I noticed a listing for cuttings of Adriano varieties. "Pingo de Mel" was one of the varieties listed but it doesn't mention if it is #1 or #2. In addition, the seller mentioned that he/she had many more varieties available and to email for a list.
I took the bait, hook, line, and sinker, and emailed...then I looked at the seller ID, and it was vaguely familiar. I did a google search and, sure enough, found a whole Fig Forum thread on the seller in question. The posts were NOT flattering.
Moral or the story: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Check out the seller BEFORE you bid.
