    I replied to your email yesterday informing you that I cannot look into this problem if you don't provide your actual name. I get a couple of hundred emails each day. Here again, you have given me no info except for your username (and your email address is also no clue). If you wish to post a review or voice a complaint, please sign your posts with your name. Anonymity doesn't aid customer service.

    Best regards, Michael

    I have to publicly apologize for stating that it took 4 emails to get a response. It "only" took three. I didn't see the email that was sent to me since my last attempt at contact. I have been assured that I will receive an issue of the magazine soon. Thank you, I appreciate it.

    Anonymous here but not in my emails.

    I'm sorry to hear that a few folks out there are having problems with Michael. I have been dealing with Michael on a professional level for a number of years now, and have always been satisfied with the services provided. Michael has always been a man of his word, and never mislead me in any way. All of the animals I have received from him have been the stated animals. I have been involved in breeding loans as well, and Michael is always honest and fair. As hopefully anyone can see, he will always try to do right by the people that entrust him with the care of their animals.

    Best regards to all, Bekk

    I recently purchased some female tarantula's, and an Aussie T from Micheal. You can really tell that he has been doing this for a long time. Everything, including the packaging was top notch. It is really a shame that such a professional is retiring.

    5 months and still waiting

    I sent Mr. Jacobi $20 thru paypal on July 10th as a preorder for his dvd "Tarantulas in the Terrarium." Since that time I have never heard from him and have been unable to reach him. Over the course of the last 5 months I have emailed him at least 5 times with no reply, tried to reach him thru these boards and also phoned him. The message on his phone states that his number,(the one listed on his website) is for "friends and family only, I left a message anyway but still no response. I'm not sure what happened here as I believed Mr. Jacobi to be a well respected member or this hobby/community. I know it is only $20 but I hate feeling ripped off.

    Yet again Michael hasn't disappointed me. I ordered a juvenile Poecilotheria subfusca yesterday from him and he sent it the same day I ordered and made payment. It just arrived today in perfect shape. Beautiful specimen, tuboot.

    Excellent critter, excellent packaging, excellent communication and smooth transaction.

    I'm really sorry to see some of these negative reviews, but I guess you can't please everyone all the time.

    I received two spiders, P.Regalis, P.Formosa, from Michael. Communication, packaging and overall quality was excellent. It was a pleasure doing business with him!

    POSITIVE and then some!

    I ordered my P. metallica from Michael on January 26th. Due to the cold weather the shipping was delayed for some time... but I recieved my beautifly Kimber!

    Michael was a patient and very professional person! He sincerely cares about his critters and will do what is best for them! That, to me, is a very responsible seller!

    Prices were very fair! If he offers any Pokies when I have the money I will not hesitate for one moment to make a purchase from him!

    2 Thumbs Way UP!

    Thank you Michael! Kimder is still hanging in there... made a web and we are awaiting the molt! :worship:

    I received an impressively packed C. elegans "tobago" today in the mail. It was so well packed I almost had trouble getting it out of all the protective layers. Marvelous little gem of a spider, none the worse for wear.
