Need Help! (sold as Acanthoscurria geniculata)

Okay so I bought these specimen as a confirmed female A.Geniculata but now it doesn’t look like that! I’m just molted a day ago.. I bought these guy from tarantula Bristol from UK and I’m in United States so I took the risk but I really wanted a A.geniculata.. thank you
It looks like a Brachypelma albopilosum to me.

Bristol Tarantulas have a reputation for not being a reputable dealer. Sorry to see that you’ve not got what you wanted. Returning to them would be a lot of hassle, expensive and in my opinion not worth it.

There are many dealers on these boards that would be glad to help you in getting a A.geniculata. Look on the bright side, you get to have two tarantulas!
 
@Mjb30 @BCspiderman7 @Jamie M derman7 it just really really sucks because I paid 27 euros, so whatever it is converted to USD, and I paid the shipping which was about as much and I was promised a “3 female! I don’t know where to get adults or female AG! It’s so annoying when you take the risk and you trust the people!
 
I totally agree with you, as mentioned they have a very bad reputation though. So, write it off and expect nothing back and anything you do get will be a benefit.
Have you looked through the classifieds on here for a female genic?
 
jameistarantulas.com is an amazing site!! ive gone to her for years check her out my friend.. great deals top notch service.
