    Sorry to hear mate :(.... that site is known for scammers, as a general rule ill never buy from someone (on any site ebay,gumtree etc) that has just started an account as this scumbag has.

    Sorry to hear that happened to you :(
    Did you use PayPal? They encourage people to call the police in these types of situations, maybe the person can be tracked?

    There was another one selling a perentie last week. I sent him a msg using words i don't even know what i was on about. But i told him i was from somewhere i wasn't and that we were tracking him and would have his adress shortly. He took it down pretty quickly. I quite often play with them and upset them a bit.

    There certainly does seem to be a lot of strange ads for Green Tree Pythons coming and going on RDU of late.

    Yeh all the same guy. He gets agro too when u tell him he's a a low life scumbag. Ive suggested a few times that he should get a job rather than rip off people that work for a living. I told him id throw him a couple of bucks if he could wash my bins. I'm not sure he's in to physical work tho because he was a bit upset

    Its been taken down. I saw that one today. Starts a new add every few days on a new name. I do like to watch rdu. However i won't buy off anyone who opened there account on the same day. Unless i can pick them up. I also do an extensive search on the Internet for the pics. A guy had a perentie up the other day. The pic was taken at joe balls it was his perentie.
