fastonetime aka Juan Martin

bigred(z8 Ark.)June 7, 2012

Once again I let my plant lust override my hard and fast rule NOT to trade w/ someone I didn't have a good trade history with or at least,they had at least 5 positive R&R.

Took about a week o firm up a trade with this person for some choice plant material. Mailed out my end of trade on May 29,2012 w/ confirmation. After 9 days of hearing nothing more...I emailed to inquire if they had received plants and when I could expect them to send their end only to receive curt email that their daughter had been diagnosed w/ asthma and they had dr. and medical bills to pay and being that their daughter was their main concern,wouldn't/couldn't afford to send their end. That's all well and good but since I am a retired person on a fixed income and a husband w/ medical problems,I can ill afford to ship something for nothing myself.

So I hope your daughter does well but I also hope I don't see you back on the boards trying to set up any more trades.

Juan Martin is not this person real name which should have set off more warning bells when I received email with yet another name.

Peggy, what is the name and address you used to MAIL these plants out? This is MAIL FRAUD and carries hefty penalties. Did you get a confirmation that it had been delivered to a real address? If so, get ahold of your State's Attorney and file a complaint. They can get at least your postage back.

This "trader" is still at it. Similar experience but only for cost of seeds in September. You are correct I thought it strange when a different name was sent for the mailing address. I added a note on post so others would be aware. There was no response to the email I sent in followup. Grateful for all the wonderful trades- and traders- that came before I encountered this person. Sorry.
