Problem with bulb offer

This guy has screwed a lot of us. I have filed a case against
him through the fraud department of the US Postal Service.
Chances are it will never be pursued. Maybe if everyone did this
it would become an issue.

*Hello there, i have about 25 bulbs of Haemanthus deformis i 
am selling from my collection, all are big mature sized 
bulbs, i was asking 30 a piece, so i was just wanting to let 
everyone know first on pbs, please email me for more info, i 
live in california. Warren *

I called this to the attention of one of our Garden people 
who pursued the offer and after an active correspondence was 
told he would need to send a money order in advance. I just 
learned today that , unfortunately, after sending the money 
order, he has never heard back from Mr. Keller: no bulbs, no 
explanation and no response to monthly follow ups.
