i just wanted to voice my concern about a couple companies that are ripping off the mycology community universityscientific and sporebank both are owned by the same company. i myself have been ripped off by them. and i know many other people that have been ripped off and would not recommend anyone to them. does anyone else have any involvement with either of the above companies.

I don't know the details exactly but I think they have been stealing from ralphster for a long time, they are very unscrupulous.

Yeah... they're dicks. But if people would just stick to sponsors then no one would have to worry about being ripped off. They are dicks though.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.

Yeah, but its still advertising in some way. Just need to make it very clear how bad they are.

And they're no where near as big of dicks as STP. 80+ dollar syringes.

You're not like the others. You like the same things I do. Wax paper, boiled football leather... dog breath. We're not hitch-hiking anymore, we're riding!

A good friend of mine recently bought supplies from www.universityscientific.com and spores from www.sporebank.com
BOTH websites took his money and didn't send his order. He has attempted to contact them for several weeks and they do not return his emails. They are theives! Its interesting to hear that my friend isn't the only one. Buy from sponsors or reliable vendors, not these guys! just a word of warning.

the thing to do it to call your credit card company and ask for a charge back. describe about being charged and not receiving your product. more than likely, you'll get your money back. that's what i did with universityscientific. i think ill try the vendors next time. i also like buying spores from a non-vendor that is very reliable and professional and sells spores for less than all sponsors here.

I'm not trying to defend either company, but I do know for a fact that University Scientific has had problems with one of their suppliers in recent weeks. I've been told they are going about fixing all the setbacks that resulted from this supplier's problems so hopefully they are making right by their customers.

It's no secret that Sporeworks supplies some products for both companies, and we want to make sure that if people are placing orders through these vendors that they receive what they paid for. I've NEVER know the administrators of these sites to intentionally "rip" anybody off (ie take money and not send products), so if there was some problem then it might be the result of misunderstanding or miscommunication. Have you tried sending email to both their customer service contacts? I'm almost certain that if you do they will take care of you.

If you feel comfortable in doing so, PM me the details of your order with either company, and we can contact the administrator of these sites directly and work on your behalf to ensure you are takin care of (if you truely feel they have been ignoring you or trying to rip you off).

Sporeworks would not allow a company to sell our products if they indeed intentionally ripped off customers. In fact we have pulled our supplies from resellers in the past who were engaged in such practices.

Again, I can't speak for these people directly, but I do know they are NOT in the business of ripping customers off.
