ANNOUNCEMENT, BEWARE SCAMS! ASK FOR IMAGES

Ad type
ANNOUNCEMENT
Description
Dear Insectnet.com buyers and friends,

With most of us around the world under house arrest due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is a wonderful time to rear butterflies and moths--a "beautiful hobby" as an Italian friend called it. 

HOWEVER, I have never seen fraudulent advertisements so rank on this site. PROTECT YOURSELF. Scams hurt all of us dependable breeders who serve this hobbyist community.

If an advert has no images, it's a warning sign! Ask for images of any material you intend to buy BEFORE money is exchanged. If you receive images, make certain the images are not "stolen" off the internet. Avoid any advert that does not list prices for goods up front. Avoid any advert that does not describe postage or payment terms up front. Avoid payment platforms that are anonymous and untraceable.

More warning signs can be found in the insectnet.com forum under "Trading Reports"

Stay safe, stay healthy, and be smart,
Michael in Tucson
