    Yeah I've seen several auctions of his since the creation of this thread.

    Hey, they could come from his property. If I had property covered in CP's I'd have every right to sell each and every one if I wanted to. Some people care more about money than the well being of a species that could very well be on the decline. I mean.. maybe wishful thinking but maybe to him if it grows on his property it's still wild? Like a ... wild dandylion or something lol.

    I hate people like that. I hate bad ethics. I hate bad customer service and I hate people stupid enough to try to sell illegally on ebay.

    Even if it is growing on his property it's still safe to assume that he is violating either Thialands law or the country he his shipping to law by shipping them internationally. So I tried to write Ebay this letter but it says that the page is not responding.

Also the seller states that he removed the plants from the wild. I don't know Thailand's law regarding poaching but I think it is safe to assume that what he is doing a violation of one or more local laws.

    The plant he is selling is called a nepenthes. Nepenthes are becoming more and more rare because of poaching and habitat destruction. I have noticed that this seller has repeatedly sold plants native to Thailand. Please review this auction to determine if it is a violation of your "Importation of Goods" policy.

    Thank you

    I'll try again later.

    Our favorite seller has received some "positive" negative feedback. I wonder if this is someone who just bid on it and never sent payment or actually got screwed in the shipping.

    xvart.

    edit: since the auction just ended yesterday I guess he never even tried to get the plant. Just taking one for the team!

    Ozzy, have you gotten a message from eBay yet or haven't you tried again?

    xvart, it's a really good thing that someone gave him that feedback, I wonder if it was someone from here? Although surely we'd know that if it was.

    This kind of stuff really pisses me off.

    Edit: *sarkophage* (the person that made the negative feedback) has not recieved any negative feedback as of yet. Maybe the seller doesn't care or he/she hasn't noticed yet. Let's hope that *sarkophage* gets away with it since he/she was just pointing out an injustice.

    I also sent ebay a message using the "report this listing." I would imagine that the only response we will get back is an auto response "we are looking into this" and "thanks for blah blah blah."

    xvart.
