    Has anyone ever purchased from this site? Is this credible? I’d love to know your experiences if you have.

    They have quite a nice web site, but I'd be leary of buying from them. I just get a bad feeling about it. I had never heard of them until your thread.

    Yeah see and the .org has me trusting but that’s a fear of mine their tortoises are also extremely cheap. Such as $800 for an Aldabra.

    Likely a scam then. Only scammers have cheap tortoises that usually sells for 2000 and up.

    Aren’t your videos your property? There should be some fine or disciplinary action for stealing videos too.

    I know this is an old thread, however a friend showed me the ad for an $800 Aldabra and I had to look into it. Very suspicious that their PayPal payment option specifically wants you to pay with "Friends and Family" ONLY! All other forms of payments listed are payments that are impossible to get your money back from.

    SCAM, DO NOT BUY FROM tortoisehomefarm.org !!!

    I also made the mistake, I've been talking to them for a week now to see if it was really a scam, I was really confused because he did not tell me he was a Nigerian Prince. They refused to show me a picture of Aldabra, with eggs in the background, and my name written on a piece of paper, and said all egg hatching are guaranteed (which is impossible).

    Furthermore, they have minimum orders of $500, the also only allow you to "send to friends" via paypal (which means there's no way to dispute the charges), there's many other details I've gathered, such as all the pictures and videos are stolen from other websites.

    I've sent a abuse claim to namecheap,com, the people that web host the scam company, I also recommend more people send emails to [email protected] too so we can shut them down before they steal money.

    Thanks
