I would love to hear their explanation.  Reputation is so important in business.

To update everyone, the issue has been resolved and he has taken the picture off of his website. Before he was confronted with it  he tried to sell the calf to couple of different people even asking the one person to send him 1/2 down deposit then he would arrange getting the calf to them. So he had every intent on scamming everyone because he was not selling the calf for us or has ever even talked to us before. He spoke to the potential "buyers" he claimed the calf was at his place in TX. As the truth started to come out he tried to claim the calf belonged to some other big time club calf trader, then after he realized he was busted he claimed he had no idea how the picture ended up in his website! My picture is no longer on his website but I would question who the other calves belong to. I am so glad that I discovered this before some unsuspecting person purchased the calf because they would have been sent the wrong calf. Also after posting about this on here and FB I have heard from several people who also have a bad experience with this particular person. On the bright side a lesson learned, always watermark your pictures and NEVER buy a calf you  can not see in person without having someone you trust looking at the calf for you. Also ask around before buying from someone you do not personally know and pay close attention to background of their pictures. If the backgrounds don't match especially if you see palm trees in a region that is not tropical be suspicious.lol  Thank you!!!!

SKF You handled this very professionally. I commend you. I am glad there are people out there with your class. Since He was going to scam the calf I think it is only fair his name be announced so people can be aware. I will post his farm name and if I am wrong somebody can correct me as when I looked I couldnt find it but by describing the eye candy steer I feel I have a good idea. You did not post it so I will be the bad guy.

Sounds like something ************ would do..He has been making a real bad name for himself

moderator note (not fair to speculate and put a person's name in a public forum)

Is that something that can be reported as fraud?


Yup :)

Just found out that some of the other calves on his site do not belong to him and he is advertising them as his and even stole a video of a calf from Youtube that was already sold in another sale!! WOW what a liar!



If it's not a private sale, contact the sale manager and get him kicked out

I would love to believe that but that was not the case. When a couple of different people contacted him about the calf just to see what his response would be he tried to sell the calf. He even knew who the sire was because I had that listed on Facebook the only he got wrong was the age by one month. So this was no accident or someone hacked his web site. He was very well aware of it and then even changed his story to say he was selling it for someone else and the name he gave he was selling it for was not mine. Bottom line his he never had my permission to use my picture and he had every intent on scamming potential customers. Hope he learned a lesson and will try to be honest next time he tries selling a calf.

perhaps this is just what steer jockeys do except this time they just did it on the net.

aren't they always trying to set up deals even though they might not have a calf purchased?

these people seem to like to pay peter to pay paul.
