Hi guys I just wanted to share this with all of you and ask what you think about this , I was checking My Facebook and I stumble across this seller selling radiated , Indian stars , and aldraba tortoise , I asked how much the radiated torts go for and they have me a really good deal 1800 for adults , 800 for subadults and 380 for a baby this sounds too good to be truth , just wanted to be careful and ask for your opinion this sounds like a scam to me and i just wanted to share ,there is also a cour of pics of a guy handle king a snake and two other guys who seem to be in the military , I'm not sure about posting those other pics just to avoid problems but they seem to be in military uniforms .

We are getting many scams these days that use our pictures, actually recieved a call from a small zoo yesterday that wanted to confirm that someone else was trying to sell our aldabras, at least our picture was used!

Scam,scam,scam. Anyone claiming to produce all of the most expensive tortoises, should always be suspicious, plus the low price = scam. Interesting to see they moved to Face book.

I guess you could consider an honor ( dubious it may be), that the scammers would want to use your tortoise's photos

I had a call a few days ago from someone inquiring about a yearling. He had related that he was corresponding with someone who was offering them for $400. I told him to order me 100 and i would double his initial investment, LOL!

* I can say with almost certainty that the first picture is of a wholesaler located in Miami, Fl.

* I would always have suspicion if no telephone number is offered and all dealings are strictly over the internet!

* That money gram thing, unsure how that works?

I told them I would think about what to do and that I would tell them later and not even five minutes later I got a friend request from someone who I don't even know , I'm 200% sure this is a scam , they should get a job like everybody else and make a living the right way instead of stealing money from people , I rather clean a bathroom with a toothbrush on my knees all day to make a living than stealing from someone ! I don't know how they can have peace of mind knowing they are doing something bad to other people .

Money gram is just like western union, no way to track once the money is picked up, and of course no refund is possible.

I'm not real computer literate, but I would not interact with them anymore. I don't know how easy it would be for someone to get info from your emails.
