    Humm not going to be much help, but I guess it is a learning experience for us all when things like this happen. I have never done a swap, but have ordered alot of hatching eggs on here and have never had a problem (Thank goodness). I could see how upset I would be if I were in your place. I believe the only thing I can think of is in the future if you are planning a swap maybe it could be a new post, like guess what I am swapping X eggs for X eggs from this BYC member or The brother of This BYC member I am so excited. THat way you can update it with info like I sent my eggs today blabla bla, then it could have went still haven't got my eggs but they should be here soon ect ect ect. That way the person is more likely to send your eggs. I know this was long and kinda weird, its late I haven't slept much in 2 days. Hope THe BYC member talks to his brother and gets you your eggs. I know you can't say bad things about others on here but PM's work wonders to other member (not sure if that is against the rules either though). Maybe talk to a Moderator.

    Sorry that this happened to you momof. I'd be upset too.
    I don't think you are supposed to be bringing this to the forum. PM a moderator for help with this.
    Good luck.

    Imp- I suspect this thread will disappear. [​IMG]

    I would like if you would PM me the BYC member's name also. I buy and swap a LOT of eggs, good ones and I am generous in my swaps. I would hate to get taken by someone so dishonest.
