Their technique is the following:
*They will use a fake name (in this case Mary Jane) and place an online ad (ie Kijiji) for reptile(s) they’re selling (so far it’s mostly been piebald bp’s);
*Once they have a potential buyer, this person will tell them that they will be using Reptile Express to ship their animals;
*They will instruct their potential buyer to forward the animals value to Reptile Express, where it will be held in trust until the animals arrive. Once the animals arrive, the funds will be released to the seller by Reptile Express;
*They will let their potential buyer know that they’ll be contacted by Reptile Express shortly in order to provide payment details.
For now keep in mind our ONLY email address is: Reptileexpress@hotmail.com. Anything else is a fake! Do not forward any monies to any other address.
