The one thing I’ve always been afraid of is being scammed out of one of my snakes if I have to sell one. I’m usually a buyer, so I’m not too familiar with what to look out for and how to prevent it from happening as best as I can. I generally lurk in groups that do have someone tell a horror story of those who will purchase an animal from them and later reverse the charge or worse. If someone is very eager to pay for your animal, that’s great and all, but even that puts me on edge because I just don’t know what could happen once they’ve received them.
What are some things that could help with dealing with a possible scammer making off with your animal or money in the event it happens to you? Are they more common than most think?
