    I bought a cabinet incubator on ebay April 1st. Had to use google checkout since I couldn't use paypal. (Seller no longer takes...) A day after I paid, all this negative feedback started on this seller. I don't know his ebay "handle" since they closed his accounts and cleared my order off of my ebay page. 10 days later, numerous emails and phone calls later I still haven't gotten my incubator. Do not buy from Rowland farms in Georgia! He sells mostly incubators and their accessories.

    Ebay has sent me an email alerting me to his fraud. Tomorrow, I call the credit card company. I've already contacted google checkout to start a grievance (sp?) report against him. That's $530 I'm down right now. I could just scream!!!

    Oh man, those kind of incidences really hurt. We were burned off ebay a couple of years back for close to $500 on a wooden playscape we had been saving our money up for, for our boys. Gosh, that stung hard.

    I hope you recover your money, and thanks for the warning.

    Is this the same individual who does business under the name of "crossroadsfarmsga?" That's who I bought my incubator and turner from and he is no longer a registered user.

    Quote:I think that's him! Was he just slow to ship? When I called him, he gave me his life's story. People have been calling up and threatening him. I tried to be considerate, but he only made a d*** tracking label with ups, never gave them the incubator. He's in Georgia, I'm Kentucky. If it weren't Easter weekend, I'd show up on his front door.

    Yes, I paid him on the 17th of March and he did not ship until the 21st. I know that's not terribly slow, but on the 20th I contacted him and told him that he would ship "immediately" since I had used the "Buy it Now" option and that I had eggs that would arrive early the following week and I would be VERY upset if I had nothing to hatch them in. His failure to ship my incubator right away is just one of the many things that went against this particular hatching . . .
