Carl95

aquadragonfly(7b NC)September 20, 2012

I didn't want to do this, I was hoping he would honor his end of the deal but it didn't happen.

I have never left negative reviews for anyone before but this guy is taking advantage of everyone who sends seeds to him before getting his trade first.

I did it without thinking because I was sick when we traded and told him I would send out at the end of the week. He said ok and I thought he was going to go ahead and send mine. He didn't and since I have sent him emails, he promised he would send and he still hasn't and it has been months.

I still have our original emails so I know what he owes me and it includes his information.

So beware, he doesn't follow through if you send first.

I did a trade with him and I know he got the berry plants! Said he sent the rooted roses but I never got them. I contacted him and he said he would re send the asap. Nothing so far. Be careful of this guy!

Do not send him plants or seeds. i have been waiting for my seeds since Aug 6th 2012. He NEVER responds to emails and is trying on many different sites to get plants and seeds. He only responds when he thinks he can get something out of it. In his email he stated clearly that he received my end of the trade. Beware Beware. i hope by him being outed no one ever gets swindled by him again.

I agree with lovemeflowers.
I hate to say, but I have to give this carl95 negative. I have mailed my 4 berry plant and did not get what he said that he dropped in post office on 13th. Mine had confirmation and I am sure he got all nice plants.
The word should post to the trade page, so no one else being scamed by him.

I agreed to send this member some plants for postage, and explained that I always collect the postage before mailing out plants. He wasn't to get paid for another week and a half and was concerned that it was getting late. I assured him that it would be fine and suggested he just get his ground all prepped and ready for when they arrived.

No postage money was sent and I've gotten no replies to emails asking if he was still interested in the plants for postage.
