This story began with a simple e-mail alert from a company that enjoys a great reputation. The name of this company is www.Seedbay.com which I have done business with in the past. Seedbay is a website where you can purchase marijuana seeds.
The headline said: This strain may be the "Holy Grail".
Moscaseed Co has back-crossed two pheno's ofÂ Brothers Grimm - Cinderella 99Â and was providing 10 seeds for $75.
My birthday was coming up and since I'm alone, I decided to spend the extra money and buy myself these seeds. I hit the BUY NOW button and promptly filled out the order form. The instructions said to send an International Money Order so, I walked down to the Post Office to obtain one. I was told the Post Office no longer sold International Money Orders to Great Britain. I came back home and sent an e-mail to Gypsy Nirvana at Seedbay and asked them what else I could do. I received a prompt reply telling me various ways to send the payment. I promptly went about getting the proper moneygram and sent my payment of $75+sh and began waiting for my prized seeds to arrive.
After two weeks had past, my birthday came and went but, shortly after the seeds did arrive.
They came in a flimsy homemade envelope made of a cardboard back and paper taped to it with just the seed package inside the big envelope. I excitedly opened up the envelope to find the "Holy Grail" seeds I was expecting turned out to be white, immature, hollow seeds that are worthless. Now, somebody had to put these seeds inside their plastic pouch by hand. There is absolutely NO WAY these seeds would have passed even a cursory inspection. Inside the package of 10 seeds were Two half-shell of different seeds which had broken sometime prior to being placed inside the plastic bag they came in. The rest of the seeds were not even able to withstand a simple pinch between the fingers test. They were immature, non-viable seeds that anyone could have determined so.
Here is a photograph of the package and seeds I received of my "Holy Grail" Brothers Grimm - Cinderella 99
I am providing the link because the picture is too large to display on this page. I provide it in this manner so that you can inspect them easily and decide for yourselves if these highly acclaimed "Holy Grail" Quality Genetics are what was advertised.
I am uncertain who is to blame for this incident. It could very well be the worker employed by Gypsy Nirvana to fill the orders that come in on a daily basis.
I do not know this Moscaseed Co and as far as I can tell, the Seedbay site is the only place his seeds are offered for sale. I had heard good things about his breeding abilities and the seed stock he provides.Â It would be a terrible thing if the breeder of Moscaseeds gets a bad reputation for providing inferior seeds with the claim of Quality Genetics due to somebody at Seedbay swapping out the good "Holy Grail" Brothers Grimm - Cinderella 99Â and exchanging them with non-viable bird seed.
Now, here is the story of Gypsy Nirvana and his Global Empire.
Both www.seedboutique.com and www.seedbay.comÂ are websites where you can purchase marijuana seeds of various strains. The web forum of www.icmag.comÂ is a very large Marijuana website where many world-class breeders advertise their current projects and a place for others to talk about the process of growing this wonderful plant.
For someone who is so intimately linked to Marijuana in all it's many forms, I would expect much better quality control over the products they send out. After all, reputation is what keeps the customers coming back.
As I stated above, when I had a question regarding how best to send my money to this company, my e-mail was responded to promptly. After I received my seeds and had a complaint about the quality of the product, I wrote the support e-mail addy again. I asked them what might have happened and requested a replacement pack or a refund. The e-mail went unanswered. After about 3 days, I wrote the support at Seedbay again, as well as sent a message to the seller Moscaseeds regarding the condition of the seeds I received. Still no reply.
I e-mailed this company a third time demanding a reply of some sort to my complaints, even providing a picture of the seeds, showing the condition. STILL NO REPLY.
It appears that this Global Company is quite active in replying to e-mails when it is regarding sending in a payment but, not when there is a complaint.
I can only assume, based upon the conduct of Gypsy Nirvana, his company as well as the lack of response from the seed breeder that this action was purely intentional. That Gypsy Nirvana, Seedbay and Moscaseeds have colluded in defrauding people out of their money by enticing them with promises of obtaining the "Holy Grail" fromÂ Brothers Grimm - Cinderella 99Â BX1
I am writing this article to serve as a warning to anyone else seeking to purchase QUALITY GENETIC Marijuana seeds. DO NOT trust Gypsy Nirvana, either of his seed companies (Â www.seedboutique.com and www.seedbay.comÂ ) or, the Moscaseeds Co.
I tried to work this problem out by following the proper procedure, notifying the company (3 times) as well as notifying the Breeder/Seller (Moscaseeds).
Their collective silence on this issue leaves me with only one conclusion. They are unconcerned about customer satisfaction once they get your money in their bank accounts.
I do not have an extra $80 to just throw away. I survive on an extremely limited budget each month and put myself out by making this purchase. I did so based upon the reputation and unfortunately got burned.
In conclusion, if any of the offending parties wish to leave a comment, explaining their actions I am still willing to listen. I would have preferred that this problem be sorted out in private between myself and the company. Unfortunately they have so far refused to answer my e-mails and messages.
For those of you who have never heard of Gypsy Nirvana, here is his Youtube channel.
I highly suggest you NEVER spend money with these companies. Unless you have extra money you simply wish to throw down the drain.
What I do not understand is how a company that prospers by it's reputation would place at risk their future profitability by ripping a customer off intentionally and not suffering any consequences. Is Gypsy Nirvana so all-powerful that word of his conduct will do no harm to his business? Does Gypsy Nirvana believe he can simply take peoples money with the belief that he is untouchable by the individual consumer?
I invite Gypsy Nirvana and the breeder Moscaseeds to post up a comment on this article, explaining their actions and inaction's on resolving this matter. If after the publication of this article, they contact me and wish to resolve this matter in a civil manner. I am more than willing to listen.
I just want what I paid for, nothing more, nothing less.
