I can understand if there running behind but as some of you have said failure to communicate is not a good thing. just a email, quick phone call or even a post on there website would calm my nerves.
    same here. paid in Nov'13 for 4/1/14
    I too understand running behind but do not understand the failure to communicate any status at all.

    No Queens, No communication, refund requested via email and no response.

    I will keep you updated.

    I also placed an order and paid in early January. My shipment was supposed to be for the 15th of April.
    To date my emails go unanswered.
    You know,,,I wouldn't even mind so much if I had one communication from him, but that hasn't happened.
    I hope he is OK tho, maybe just too darn busy to go on the computer?

    No. This is how this guy does business with everyone I have had over 10 people contact me saying that this guy is stiffing them as well looks like I will be filing a mail fraud clam.

    No communication from Dansk regarding 4/1/2014 delivery.
    No response to emails, phone is never answered ( is it even connected?)
    No queen delivery.
    No refund.

    I do not believe the sad story posts by Dansk in response to this thread.
    Those who paid for a product that was not delivered are entitled to a refund, myself included.
    It's really as simple as that, or it's robbery.

    Figures. Did you ever pursue the mail fraud route?
    I have not received bees or refund either.
    I'm really tired of dirtbag thieves.

    Here he is in the Orlando Weekly a couple of years ago.
    Maybe they'd like to do a follow up story?

    To all who tried to buy queens from this guy at Dansk Farms....
    Seems there really is something wrong with his health, and has had a guardian appointed, Carla R., and she has issued me a full refund through paypal, for the 5 queens that I ordered early Jan. 2014, this morning.
    When I hadn't received any confirmation or correspondence from Willingham, two members here on Beesource suggested sending an invoice for getting the refund thru paypal, or going the mail fraud route.
    But filing a claim/dispute thru paypal didn't work, as we paid well over 30 days past, and weren't getting any support from them. So by sending an invoice thru paypal did help.
    I am very thankful to his guardian, Carla, for being trustworthy, and sincerely hope Willingham recovers from his illness, and returns to good health soon.

    Default Dansk Farms is back

    Barry, please wait a couple of days and then move this thread to the appropriate forum or delete it at your discretion.

    Dansk farms is run by Winburn Joseph Willingham (407) 965-5551 who was located in Winter Park Florida. He sells honey, pollen, and queen bees online. He took numerous orders between 2010 and 2014 that were not shipped. He has registered a new website and appears to be gearing up to do some of the same ripoff as last time. I suggest avoiding this guy as he has cheated numerous beesource members, me included. I ordered 4 queens for $103 2 years ago on order number 3252556904. They were not shipped and emails and phone calls were unanswered.

    Here is his old website:
    http://www.danskfarms.com/

    Here is his recently registered domain
    http://buckfast.us which translates to https://buckfastbees.wordpress.com/

    Here is the thread from 2013 discussing his intransigence:
    http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...97-Dansk-Farms

    This is his facebook page:

    Maybe his time in the monastery has helped him see the light. Maybe he is now driven to go good in order to attain balance and peace. Did clip 5/5 show him smuggling in Danish queens? Pretty ballsie move grasshopper, posting he has Danish bees when all imports were made illeagal. The usda did get an exemption so they could bring in the Russian queens, Maybe he knows somebody at the usda, ya think?

    Didn't watch the clip, but con men DO lie to make their con more convincing. Nothing ballsy about a bold-face lie, imo. After all, who is gonna be able to disprove it? and it does make the "merchandise" more attractive.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    he has Danish bees when all imports were made illegal
    He sourced them from Canada where it is still possible to bring in queens from Europe. There are several suppliers in Canada who ship to the U.S. So while his advertising is misleading, he probably did get Buckfast stock from Canada who got them from Europe. There is no telling how long ago he got the source stock.

    I'm sorry for your bad experiences outlined above, but he sold me three or four queens as promised. :-)

    As a banker for 25 years here is my advice. Use your Visa or MasterCard when making purchases from companies you are not familiar with. You can dispute it and get the money back. If they do not accept either, buyer beware. I will admit I have bought queens with checks (Lauri and Olympic Wilderness Apiary to name a couple) with no problems but there is always risk in doing so. When in doubt, use the card.

    Yeah, their new website shows better than the one from a couple of years ago. When I read that old site, it was obviously that something fishy was going on. However, I would still avoid this seller at all costs unless they do the right thing and back compensate all that lost money.
