Ouch. I haven't seen him/them online in while, but I believe he had fallen ill last time he went MIA. I hope he turns up and you get either your fish or your money back.

Did you ever get in touch with them? I also purchased a fish in early February and not heard back from them.

It looks like they’ve taken the money and ran. Not even the “other person” supposedly assisting him has even chimed back in on these forums. An unfortunate series of events and some great lessons for us all going forward.

I just opened a claim today but it won’t be resolved until August according to PayPal.

Last I talked to him he was dealing with a diagnoses of brain cancer. Did anyone consider that is health may be the problem? He has been fighting brain cancer for some time.

Ok, that is unfortunate but he does seem to owe a lot of members here fish or money. Was it like one day he was fine the next he wasn’t able to handle his affairs. Wouldn’t have been right of him to settle his business. He could have contacted the buyers and offer a refund or some type of solution. Seems like most the people got ghosted.

He also has a helper who was on here so while yes this is unfortunate- also unsubstantiated- she/he could have communicated as well to everyone who’s given money.

open a paypal claim, I think thats what his site took

big ups to @Emac909 for calling him out from day 1
It is unfortunate that people got burned but I’ve seen this happen a few time now. It’s kinda why I be a D to the sellers that do these things. He seemed to be acting in the right interest saying he didn’t want to undercut LFS, but was that a ploy to get more money from buyer.

I’m just an idiot tho I don’t know who one goes about creating a business selling fish or corals. To me it seems like it would take up so much time.

But the way he came out swinging just seemed kinda fishy to me.

All that is true. He just met his 'helper' girlfriend recently. She knew nothing about aquariums but was willing to help him. I did meet her and then shortly after that I didn't hear from him again.
