i'd like to share my story about buying a snake from a breeder online , he's called Danny Markson , that guy was saying OK , like 10 times per line, i didn't find it convincing that he's from UK. funny thing i was supposed to get an email from the pets transport company , and their email is firstname.lastname@example.org
, i found it weird that a company like that doesn't have their own email , when i searched petsjet, they were originated in Au. not Uk. .. so i decided to do some search on him and here i found people complaining about him. the funny tricks that made me get suspicious of him
1st - no website of the pet travel company
2nd - he sent the pet right away to the pet company in 20 minutes? even though its the weekend?
3rd - he's in UK, but the money transfer is in Cameroon?
4th - the emails i had , were too suspicious, here's my email....

Subject: RE: ***AWAITING PAYMENT AND DELIVERY NOTIFICATION FOR YOUR MALE JAGUAR PYTHON TO KUWAIT***
Date: Sat, 5 Nov 2011 20:43:06 +0300
hello there, i just got your call from one of the guys, i can't call them back cuz the number was "unknown"
however, i told the guy that the western union is closed at the moment cuz its 8 pm, and im not sure if they're gonna be open or not because of the "eid's holidays" ..
anyways, i do have a question for you.. what happens if the snake gets rejected in the airport and its not allowed to go through the custom ? have you ever shipped a snake to kuwait? everyone here is telling me its illegal to order a snake online. so what happens if you guys dont deliver the snake to my house? will you send the money back?
i would appreciate it if you answer the question, im just making sure cuz its my 1st time ever ordering a pet online.
and i'd appreciate it if you make sure as well about kuwait.
his reply was "from the pet's travel company"
