Paid for scorpions on last year's 2019-2020 import. Seen only 1 scorpion so far. I was denied a claim by PayPal because 180 days expired. I have only seen about $90 of a total of $400 worth spent in scorpions plus $55 dollars shipping. I have requested a refund from Austin so far no response back. It is all Austin now. But if there is no response from him indefinitely I will be reporting back to the thread.

What payment method did Paypal take from? If it's a credit card, you can go to the card company and if it was a direct pull from your bank account you can file a claim with the bank.

It was from a bank with a debit card. Yes I am going to look into filing a claim through the bank. Thanks! 😉

I'm down more than $3,000 worth from last year's (2020) import and other breeding pairs with males that supposedly died in molts right before shipment.

4 orders from him, all with issues or unfulfilled.

History:
Sling died a day after arrival
3" F A. braushauseni turned out to be a male
L. striatus pair, male "died" before shipment
L. polycuspulatus pair, male "died" before shipment
Zero items received from import (paid ~$2,000)

Initially communication was back and forth by email for the goods. Now complete silence. I've heard others (known breeders) got some of their Ts. Paypal will not refund the purchase since 03 has you send with "Friends & Family" and the purchase is over 180 days. Well-orchestrated work to keep customers at arm's length. Will be reporting to my credit card company using all the customer reports I can find as fodder.

It seems like he just has bad luck....like really bad luck. Ive had dealings and he has been in good contact with me, I saw his website from a youtuber and was blown away from the stock. He had some very rare OW, which is what I needed. I, like many others, had several imports preordered and get delayed. He has been in good communication with me and I completely understand all the issues he's had. I asked tho if I could just have a replacement spider that was in stock. He said that was fine, and had no issues working with me. We agreed on a date, he sent me a tracking no, but it was never picked up. I asked and he said Fed Ex never picked up the boxes. He has a Fed ex pick up box in his store, which is kinda neat. It has now been multiple attempts and Fed Ex has yet to pick up the packages. My concern is that Ive always just went to a Fed Ex store to ship. That way I know they are scanned and at least in transit. When I do call for a pick-up, they are here like clockwork, and i live out in the country. I'm not blaming him, as he had uploaded videos to us all effected with proof, but this is odd for Fed EX. i'm not sure if he's called, but if my local pick-up driver skipped me multiple days Id be filing a claim. Has anyone had this issue before? It just seems odd.....Plus it's winter here and the temps are all over, so re-scheduling a day is tricky for both of us.

As for other orders in the past, I did have one come DOA, but he fixed that no issue and all of my other purchases came well and are doing great to this day.
