Wow... Barry, you are famous... Robert too... talking about us all the way over in England....
Haha... Google is GREAT!! I found a link that Robert lists as " Russian scientist with translator".... INCREDIBLE... Thats my ex-wife that grafted for JN, and a visiting Ukranian beekeeper that cam over here on a government funded exchange type program through Jackson state university.... he was the dude that convinced me to try bee stings for my arthritis.... hehehe. He was just a small beek in Ukraine that DID migrate with the weather there.... all his bees on a trailer moved from area to area....Everyone take a look.. :)
World renowned bee breeder and PHD? Thats even funnier than calling Barry's site one of the most censored on the planet.:lpf:
My ex with the Ukrainian beek ... looks like the pecan orchard down the road from me.... where was "I"?? AT my DAY JOB :)
Im so embarrassed that he pulled the wool over my eyes. Im usually pretty good about spotting a scammer, but RR got me on this one. Fell for it hook line and sinker. Anyone want 2 of russells famous treatment free mite resistant carniolan queens? Id love to know where they actually came from or what their lineage is. Sigh.
I removed my photos from his site today,I don't care to be associated with him any more.
According to the link provided in this post, Robert is now in custody.
Joel gave good advice here:
All of us who have been wronged by Robert should contact the AG and at least file a complaint. I will be.
I left a message with my cell number and email for the investigator Randy Chatham 601 825-1480 Tuesday afternoon. Not sure if this is the way to go but if he gets back to me I will let you know.
I am still trying to understand whether or not PDG Honey was involved or not? Do any of you know or at least have opinions?
I don't but I did buy a couple of queens off of him last year and I did receive what I asked for when I couldn't get any communication from Russell's. Got what I paid for from Russell also. Guess I got real lucky on that. Sad situation this has came to is all I can say.
Thanks MTINAZ, I missed where you had responded. I appreciate your insight.
If anyone paid him money and did not receive there items I highly recommend that you call the Rankin county sheriffs office. Robert Russell is in custody but on a warrant in a different county, for what appears to be taking someones $ and not giving them queens. I think this is the felony false pretense the link to the court docket was about. It sounds like Rankin county may also be wiling to file similar charges.
Can we just post all the contacts and phone numbers we have to the appropriate authorities. Very confusing with maybe half a dozen different offices involved. If I hear back from Mr. Chatham I'll ask him who we should be talking to.
