He has two aqua bid accounts the one we discribed an the other as his Betta fish forum username . Both have no feedback . But all is linked to his Facebook . Which he deleted but my boyfriend took pictures off his Facebook account. And I wouldnt write all of this about him if I wasn't 100% sure .

Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

This is just sad, how anyone can do this to people and live with themselves.

oh my god, this is terrible :(

I know people used to do this on some sims I used to play, but that was digital animals. These are real!

How could someone do this and not feel anything?
Karma will get them though.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

It's very unfortunate, my boyfriend wanted his first Aquabid Betta so we could try and start a unique line and our first time doing it we got ripped. It feels really bad especially when we are good people and would never dream of doing this to another person.

Well hopefully the truth comes out... One thing I can't stand are con artists.. Taking people's hard earned money without recourse...

@Candice: How did you guys pay for the fish? Hopefully it was via PayPal or some other secure method... Also, as a rule of thumb for me, I dont buy from anyone who has no feedback whatsoever.. I may have to pay more from an established seller, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Hope you guys find a way to get your money back. Do keep us posted!

Agrred 100% with the feedback rule. It's always good to see 5 negative reviews than 0 reviews, especially if this said seller is selling phenomenal fish.

Because PayPal was down we paid western union. We dont have any experience buying off aquabid so that is where we learned our lesson by not looking at feedback . Next time we will definitely check feedback .
