U.K. Absolutely outraged- avoid 'Scotland Exotic Arachnids'

Hi guys,
I recently bought what I thought was a Brachypelma Hamorii for my grandchild's birthday. I specified a mature female. I was showed pictures of the spider before buying and I could identify it was indeed a mature female. Long story short, I was not sent the mature female I ordered. I sat with my grandson Jack, ready to show him his amazing new pet. I opened it and what I got was not what I ordered. I was sent a DoA mature male. My grandson burst into tears. I don't know if they were even a legitimate seller, because when I went on the computer to email them and request a new specimen, the website was completely gone. I suspect it was a scam website. Absolutely disgusted. If this seller returns, I will demand information and a new specimen. I ended up gifting my grandson two tarantulas from my breeding group, which he is delighted with.
Kind regards,

I'm so sorry for both you and your grandson, that must have been horrible for him.
I'll be honest I've never heard of Scotland Exotic Arachnids but I will transfer this thread to our Tarantula and Invert Vendor Reviews so it easy to find.
