Reptile cages

Postby Lukas » Sun Jun 23, 2013 10:50 pm

Hi all
A while ago there was an advertisement in the classifieds of someone building cages, rack systems etc. It was something called like Mike’s cages or Mike’s racks? But I can’t remember. There was also a price list with all the different sizes and prices. Can someone please help me with a contact number or email?

Thanks
Lukas

Amphibian, please share your experience with this guy to help other interested parties.

If he's super dodgy we dont want his ads on the forum anyway.

Sorry Guys, I'm not vouching for this person at all as I have never dealt with him in any way.

I simply still had the advert in my e-mail and was just trying to help. If he is dodgy, please don't blame me:)

The chaps name is Mike de Sa and he is a scumbag thief.
Took a big deposit for a couple large racks and then tried to disappear. Managed to track him down after nearly a month and I am now looking to recover the money through what will most likely be lengthy legal procedures.

Being a reptile keeper for many years I am still shocked at just how many of these bottom feeders gravitate toward the hobby.

Yeah, if that's the case, we can probably delete his ads in the future, or possibly restrict his user rights so he cannot post ads without approval.

Let's see if he comes back to defend himself.

His actual contributions to the forum ended in April 2012, so he is simply using us for advertising now.

It's not a problem if a user stops contributing and only trades on the site. If we receive only negative reports about him we will put an end to his access to the site for trading like the rest of the scammers that try their luck here.

Please make sure any criticism is accurate without emotion, we all know how these things can get blown out of proportion.

Byron Zimmerman does very nice cages at very decent prices
And I know a few people who have dealt with him and are very happy with what they got

Hi All,
I'm back to defend myself....

Yes everything that was said is true.

I did take the deposit and I did not supply the goods.
I had fallen on some hard times and it got the better of me.

Funny how this post does not explain that after all of this Chris got his money back in full without having to go to cout or any of that... In fact I think to some extent he had even given up on it. Yet I stayed true to my word and paid him every cent back.

Please understand that no one on this forum is above being a victim of circumstance and unlike what social media shows we all hit rock bottom at some point in time....

The only thing that you can do is stay true to your character and come out untouched with a lesson learned or allow it to swollow you up and turn you into something that leaves you a empty shell of what you once were.
