This part is a frequent occurrence in the USA for many, many reasons.
I remember old good Gene Hackman when he was acting as FBI in a movie (I don't remember now which one) and all of a sudden (in Italian, of course, we love to dub movies) "Christ!" because the Sheriff tried some tricks against ah ah :-s

I understand that it is like a cold shower, being super excited about new arrivals and then reading this.
I would be dissapointed as well. But you didn't know. Viper is a bit harsh, but sadly it is true.
Enjoy your new arrivals, they are not to blame for the seller's problems. Just think twice next time you come across a seller that sells at supercheap costs. ;)
A bit is an understatement lol

Supporting people who smuggle only depletes the wild population. They already have one issue w/man to deal with, ie habitat destruction, they don't need another one too.

Your viewpoint of the hobby's gain is short sighted my friend.
sorry if i came across as rude. i was just curious. i dont plan to buy from known smugglers.

First off, congrats on the new critters.

And now, not to derail with smuggling anymore. But, I was in the hobby when he did the smuggling. Since all of that, hasn't he been doing it the legal way since?

Meaning the buyer purchased spiders that are in fact NOT smuggled but legally imported in the country.

Correct me if I am wrong. I mean, if he is doing it legally now, why continue to bask the mans reputation? Yeah, he did wrong. He paid for it. Now he's doing it legally. Does that make him less of a dealer than all the other dealers who import?

If he is still smuggling, I'd love to see proof. Care to share some? As I don't support that myself.
