    Just got taken

    hey folks, just got taken for 450 bucks. I will never, I mean never buy fowl on the internet again. I dont understand why, we as gamefowl lovers cannot treat each other with dignity and respect. Just be honest. The way I see it, we as a whole group have enough outside enemies to fight against. We should not be trying to take advantage of each other. Instead we should stand together. Now I was not born last night. I realize there is alot of competition, and that is great. but we shouldnt lie and steal from each other. Be very careful when buying fowl on the internet. I hope this will be a help to some other newbies. Thanks, David.

    I generally dont like to tell names, but in this case I will. His name is Curtis Brown. He lives in Big Clifty KY. I bought a Pair of young flarry eye grey [Jr Belt] blood. The site I used was oakridge gamefowl auction. I just reported this to the administrater and waiting for response. I hope I can recover my loses. The only reason I gave name is because I dont want honest folk to be taken.

    I remember a lot of good conversation on the "how much money" thread. I'm just curious how you decided to buy from the Oakridge auction, after all that was said on here? I hope it works out, and you get your money back. I know it sucks, but chances are the guy saved you a lot of time and money by not sending them to you, they were probably junk anyway.

    If you got your heart set on Flarryeye Greys, contact "N.C. flarry eye", and "Ttate". On this site. I can't vouch for their fowl, as I haven't seen them first hand, but I know neither one would $hit you like this guy did. Ttate had some pullets for sell cheap recently on FB. If you need any more help, or are looking into any other fowl, you can PM me anytime.

    Re: Just got taken

    i hate it buddy!! thats just plain sorry!!! But from now on always do your homework on the guy or gal your buying from. buying from oakridge is like going to the local sell barn and hoping to get top notch fowl straight out of jimbo coxs brood pens for $30 a piece. its not going to happen. Or you wont get any birds at all. Now i know there is a chance you can get some good birds from oakridge but the chances of getting junk probably are greater then getting aces. yfis

    Yes sir, I did start that thread. I didnt just send money without asking around. I had 2 different people that said they knew him. and one of the two had purchased from him in the past. Maybe you are right. I havent learned a thing. Probably is my fault. Being new, and knowing only a few chicken folk. I valued there opinion. I have spoken with them both, and they said they couldnt believe it. thank you for the response. David.

    Charge it to experience Bro. Let me share you this , i bought some fowl thru telephone order, they fowl sent didn't come up to my expectation! If you're serious in acquiring bloodline, look at it as a long term investment, make the extra effort and expenses to go and visit the breeder. You will get more for your money! JMO

    Re: Just got taken

    When I started out several years ago I bought my very first fowl from oakridge. I didn't know anyone or had any clue where to start looking to buy fowl. Long story short, I got lucky with what I bought. Hens are still in the brood pen.

    Hope u get your money back, good luck. YFIS.

    Re: Just got taken

    Sorry to hear about your $450 loss I hope you get your money back. But I do think you are way better off without the fowl. Bad chickens cost way more than good ones. What I mean by that is a couple years of your time and money only find out they are junk by 1 quitting or running off on you and costing you thousands. Look up the thread Peddlers and you will see several oakridge mentioned several times to stay away from his chicken auction.

    Re: Just got taken

    Way back I won a bid on a single Dom stag on Oakridge, $50.00! But when it came to shipping cost, this single stag was going to cost me a little over $200! So I informed the seller that i was canceling getting the stag due to the shipping cost was just way too much $$$ for single stag and he understood and graciously refunded back my money! The problem was the administrator for Oakridge was demanding that just cause I won the bid that I should of paid the amount for the shipping no matter what it cost! I told him that he was out of, his mind if he thinks I'm going to pay $225 shipping for $50 stag! But he was persistent that I pay it anyways! A few choice word were exchanged and I was suspended from the site, since then I don't even bother with Oakridge and I also warn others to stay
    away!

    ur logic is incredible. that's like someone breaking into ur car and stealing something because u didn't lock it in the trunk or something. then everyone saying its ur fault for someone stealing something out of YOUR car.

    Re: Just got taken

    Now a days, more prevalent then before, you really have to be careful and don't just take the word of two individuals! Especially when dealing with auction sites! I feel for you and I hope you get things resolved soon! Next time don't just take two individuals words about a breeder that they supposively got birds from, you should of bombarded us with questions about this individual! And if you only got two responses you should of just looked else where!

    It costs 62 bucks to ship one chicken. The administrator should know that. Sounds like he was suppose to get a cut. If I sell a chicken for 50 bucks and add 500 for shipping. ITS A SCAM

    Doing your home work is so very important in this game. There are too many scammers out there. I would research there name on the internet. If they don't have any reputation. I wouldn't buy regardless who says they are honest.
    If they have good birds and a good reputation. You can find it on the internet. I would also call him and see what the hold up is. I'm not saying he's not scamming you, but **** does happen in life. Next time ask people on here. It can't hurt.

    I understand n I hope he gets his money back cuz no one should be ripped of I guess Wat I'm trying to say is that he should of researched the guy more before he gave um the money and that theirs plenty of great people on this site he could of asked and got Wat he wanted n probably for less money as well. Not trying to put him down or come off as a d**k in anyway

    dear david, i kind of no how you feel, last year someone was selling a trio of ray christian sids, and the cock was brown red in color and pea combed, the hens were straw neck, now those who have seen my sid fowl no they are solid black or with brass wing bows, am not that good on the p.c. but i feel sorry for the guys who sold those chickins as my fowl, i never started lettin my fowl out until i got sick in 2005 i had let a cock go from time to time but never a female, so my advice is stay away from oakridge, once again am sorry and gope you get your money back. mr. ray christian.
