What do you mean? Most of the time it's the seller who scams...there's a Thai breeder who has created multiple accounts on AB and scammed a lot of people.

Well, first off, most sellers have a policy where the DOA has to be reported within one hour of the signing, with a clear picture of the dead fish still in it's unopened bag. Secondly, typically sellers will only cover the fish's cost, or send the people a new fish of equal quality, but the shipping costs are the buyer's problem, so that discourages wanna be scammers as well.

I've seen a few sellers ask that along with the pic of the fish in the unopened bag, that you take it out and cut the tail off and take another pic... Cuz who would cut the tail off a live fish?

Really?? I used to use AB all the time, I would be curious to know who it is so I can stay away when I begin my breeding program again. Thank you

I forget who it was...I'll ask Linda Olson when I pick up my replacement fish.

I know of three good Thai sellers:

Aquastar71 (never used but I only hear good things)
Chaba (my first import expierience was with him...it was ok but the fish didn't last too long but he's sending replacement fish...good seller).
Korwhord (heard good things about this guy too).
