Corals and invertebrates are some of the lowest forms of life on earth. Unfortunately, once in a while we get a customer that is even lower. This page is dedicated to them. This is one award you don't want to get.
1. (2000) Akeeb Ahmed
The first NCM Dirtbag award goes out to Akeeb Ahmed of Sacramento, Ca.. Mr Ahmed purchased a large order from us on a stolen credit card.
We didn't take this lightly.
WITH THE HELP OF THE UPS SECURITY, SACRAMENTO HIGH TECH CRIMES DIVISION AND THE SOLON POLICE, MR. AHMED IS NOW A RESIDENT OF THE SACRAMENTO JAIL.
2. (2006) Martha Oakes - Albuquerque, NM
Dear Martha Thought she would place an order and pay with a check drawn on an account that was already closed.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? DID YOU THINK WE WERE GOING TO SHIP BEFORE WE KNEW IF THE CHECK CLEARED?
Needless to say, she received nothing! Oh, Martha, you owe us 30 bucks for the returned check.
After searching the internet, we have found that Martha has ripped off A LOT of people. Glad we weren't one of them!
3. (2007) Jennifer Stevens - Colorado Springs, CO
Thought they would purchase a $225.00 light on a bad credit card. Think Again!
4. (2007) Chad Hug - Alberta Canada
To all you Canadians: Mr. Hug is the reason we will no longer ship to you via UPS or FedEx. We sent an order to him and he figured he would stick us with the customs' charges.
Now we only ship via U.S postal where this cannot happen again.
