To me jobbers are the worst because they don't even possess the animals they are selling. They don't even know the quality of animal you're getting
The deciding factor for 'Flipping' is DISHONESTY. Jobbers are not the greatest, but at least they have a business reputation and try hard not to 'F up and kill animals, which is all bad for business. Mark Lucas is a text book jobber / re-seller combo. His rep is actually pretty good and he goes to great lengths to do things right all the way around. That earns him an 'ok' in my book.
Now take a look at that Goof from Michigan with the escudos. Lied the whole way around. FLIPPER.
If you are straight up and tell people 100% EXACTLY what you are doing/ selling and for what reasons and go to great lengths to safeguard the animals and prevent death and disease. AND then deal fairly, honestly and correctly with peoples time, money and orders.
THEN....you are not a 'Flipper"
"Flipper" = Shitbird...and is reserved for the bottom of the barrel.
The Michigan guy who bought 5 pairs? I didn't see any lies there. I didn't see captive bred. help me out here
