There is a lady named Carol, she goes by the name blessed3x. She "bought my tortoise from me a year ago, she was extremely "forgetful" or was super "busy" she was suppose to pay me on the agreed amount of $150 for my Russian tortoise, all his things including a $25 mvb. And a custom bookshelf enclosure, along with some mazuri. She promised and promised to send me a check every week there was some "disaster" that made it impossible to put a check in the mail. I sold the tortoise because my husband is in the military and we are moving to Japan and needed to find him a good home so I started looking a year
Before we were to move. I am not posting this to bash anyone but more to make sure people are careful when trusting people. I did tell this woman I was coming here to warn everyone about her as she "helps" people all the time :) thanks for your time!

This is unfortunate. But never trust that you will "get a check in the mail" make sure you recieve the funds, or half before handing the goods over. Thank you for the warning. Sorry this happened to you...

Yes. I assumed(you know what that means) that since her husband was retired navy she would be an honest person. After almost a year I told her to take a hike and I hope she can afford to care for the tortoise I gave her.

So sorry this happened. I do hope she is caring for the tort properly. Some people:(


Hopefully she will see this and make good on her very bad judgement. I looked her up. She posted a thread offering tortoise care for military being deployed. I can't believe she would do this. Very surprising, or she has scammed a lot of people out of their torts:(

I just checked her stats and she hasn't been on the Forum since October of last year.

I don't know how ethical it was, but this really got my goat and I sent her a "shame on you" email.

Please keep in mind, we have not heard the other side of the story. It's best to not judge without all the facts.
