    I put a post up in the wanted section and this guy text me that he has what I am looking for. Request that I pay with an Amazon gift card. He claims he is AAA animal exchange out of North Carolina. After doing some research it seems he is just a scammer. I tried to make a phone call and it came up through Google phone. 252 381 0703.

    Lowlife POS has trolled on here before as a Mr. Halliday. Trying to sell a zebra he didn't own Nov, 2018. Was in the possession of Brian Wiseman who showed pictures of it that matched the stolen pictures shown by Halliday. Halliday has been removed on here as a user. Obviously still trolling. Rausch also pegged him as a thief. Also tried to sell a white cobra, a mountain lion, a corsican and others. After being banned, he has cropped up again on here as JonasTaxidermist. I would guess that pictures shown are all stolen from other sites. Also using the number (630) 296-6804 https://www.taxidermy.net/members/56771/

    "James Halliday said:
    MARKED DOWN!! Im trying to reduce my stock so im offering this taxidermy zebra mount for $1200
    Thats less then what I paid. Contact for questions 252-381-0703"

    Well .. scammer thief Mr Halliday (prolly a fake name too) had the courtesy to leave us his phone number. Can we do anything with that? Connect it with an address and notify the police in that area? Low life probably has other stolen things in his home.

    Hell, this is probably the best one yet. I would say he really is in Africa.

    He is definitely a scammer. He was posting my pics on here a while back of used fleshing machines straight from website trying to sell them....He was going by Halladay and he has a Spanish accent .....crooked as they come!

    The real AAA Animal Exchange is Joe Geryak and he is located in Indiana. Very upstanding guy that has handled many skins over his career.

    That phone number sounded familiar but I couldn't remember who it was earlier today. I remember this "Halliday" character trying to sell a mountain lion (I think listed by member emers48) and D. Price's images of the fleshing machine. He was wanting to be paid with Amazon gift cards back then also. Let this be a red flag to all buyers when sellers (or thieves), especially new sellers want to be paid with anything other than paypal. I know there are some legit sellers on here that won't take paypal but they have been on here for a long time and have outstanding reputations. Be cautious everyone. There is always someone out to take your hard earned $$$ from you any way they can.

    I was almost scammed here by this same "Halliday" guy, but he used this number (630) 296-6804. He requested to be paid by venmo instead. We just have to be very careful when buying or selling. THANKS FOR SHARING.

    This guy is back under the name RayTaxidermy, "phone" number 202-858-8115. Contacted me from a wanted ad with exactly what I wanted, I tried to call and apparently that number only does text. He called me back from the 252-381-0703. Sounded sketchy so glad I did some research.
