Don't worry. She isn't going to scam you. I got another one of her fish, and he's doing fine. I'm treating for a small case of fin rot, but the fish is in good condition, regardless. Of course, I picked mine up, so...

Ours isn't the only forum she's done this to. After doing some digging around it was found that she did the same thing on several forums. Fishlore, Fishforums and UB banned her also.

I'm just not a very trusting person as it is, so I'm always paranoid about everything, haha. I know it will work out, Loki was shipped today!

As per the OT: I really hate scammers, and even though I know nothing about the price of shipping or show fish etc, I can tell that's a ripoff, haha.

Fishlore was because she forgot her original log in and made a new account. I trust her. She has been nothing but nice to me.

All I know is she had WEEKS to get in touch with me both on here and facebook to explain herself prior to her getting banned. I tried numerous times to get in touch with her.. as did kuklachica.

I don't wish her any ill will but I refuse to work with her based on how things went down and information I've been told by a reliable source. It wasn't my intention to start an argument over her but simply to make the point that unfortunately there are untruthful and unreliable people in what ever you do. That is why online reviews and word of mouth are so important.

That is true, and I usually only do that. But she's not requiring me to pay until after I get the fish and he arrives safely. That's why I trust her. She must be trusting of others, though! (I obviously will pay, but she's taking a big leap, haha.)

Who are you getting your fish from goomba?

Also, scammers are just terrible people willing to possibly ruin someones life(with the right conditions) over money. They should all be locked up )=

1fish2fish...agreed. There are some people that are trusted in the hobby that I would not use based on info from a reliable source.

Scammers are the worst. Now Justin and Ian are telling me to take back what I'm saying.....
