once, i ordered some African Turbo shells from hermits-direct.com the guy who ran the website posted on the HCA boards. others said it was a good place to go and it was much cheaper than anywhere else. so i ordered them. a day or two later i get an email saying they are out of stock, they're getting more in on thursday, he will ship them out friday. no problem. i wait a week after the date he's supposed to ship them. no tracking number. so i email again asking what's the hold up? he says that every time he tries to pring out my address onto the labels, the computer says it's invalid. i email him my address again. another week and nothing. i send several more emails, and get no responses.
3 months later. i post a topic on the HCA boards warning everyone not to buy from him and outline my expirience. the same day, he posts on the thread asking me to email him again with my address and he'll get it cleared away. i did finally get my shells, but it took way too much effort and time on my part to get them.
