My turn to vent!
On occassion, I've read in the forum where sellers are upset with buyers. The complaints are that they try to talk down the price, make commitments and never follow through, etcetera. Well, I saw an ad on herptrader.com and sent the guy an email on Friday. I got pics back and asked about sexes. Several emails went back and forth and I had three in mind that I would have like to have gotten. I never tried to beat him on price. Unfortunately, the seller sent me an email saying he sold one of them (that's ok as I didn't commit yet) and that the price was raised on the others. The price was almost double! Needless to say, I won't do business with that individual! Some people!
Sorry for the rant!
