Buyer Beware

Last September I was contacted by Steve Reid of SnS Processing, Culver Indiana. He wanted to sell me whitetail antlers. We made the deal and I sent him the money. I only recieved 1/2 of the antlers promised. He has since promised to send these antlers on numerous occasions. All of these stated mailing dates have come and gone. It is now the end of May and still no antlers, just excuses. It does not take nearly one year to send a dozen sets of whitetail antlers. Most recently he said he sent them in two boxes a few months ago. The Post office must have lost them both. Draw your own conclusions.

Its one thing to see bad deals between two people but to rip off a school is like being a looter.With the tracking numbers that the US post office provides there is no reason for this.This guy should send back your money or provide valid tracking numbers and a lot less bullcrap.


Tracking numbers

Unfortunately, it depends on what method was used to ship them. Not all packages shipped with the USPS will have them. It depends on what type of shipping was paid for.

I ALWAYS pay for insurance on items I have shipped to me. Tracking is desired, too.

I hope you get your antlers!


He won't get them

Sorry Chip for your loss, He got me for $200.00 a few years ago, I went as far as the mail fraud thing {sent money order} and called his local police dept {they did nothing} needless to say I never recovered my money or merchandise. Sorry to see he's still ripping people off. Don't do business with him "STEVE REID" he's pond scum.
