Yes, unfortunately I tend to agree with you. I did ask the opinion of an ex-police officer and they said even though it is fraud, they probably wouldn't do anything about it.

Buying online is risky. It's sometimes hard to see the goods first if you live far away from the seller. There are bad people out there and before parting with our hard earned dollars we should communicate as much as we can with the seller to see if you are getting the real deal.

I've transfered money to lots of people on the forum hoping in good faith that I would get my goods. Others have let me pay them a week after if I have been short and I've been true to my word.
This hobby is expensive it sucks to get burned.
Just be aware and thanks to the members sussing out these scammers and warning others about them.

Andydang321 seems dodgy too.

I have 2 King Kong Panda Shrimp Very good colour, size 10 to 12mm for sale for $350 each or swap for crs..... or cbs... Ph 0431397427


My mate sms him regarding the King Kong Panda shrimps. He asked if he wants to swap for crs and cbs. If so what grades? A-SSS?

And his reply was, What is the difference between the grades...

Obviously if you keep King Kong Pandas, you will have to know the grades. So I think a potential scammer.

There must be more victims out there of this fraudster. Take the courage to stand up and put your case forward as it will mean he might get a harsher penalty.
