Reading this thread from the beginning and walking through all the previous posts from the seller, my gut feeling is that you've been scammed.
Unless the seller decides you can actually reach out and touch him via legal action, you will most likely not see any of your money back. Honestly, it might end up costing you more than the money you've lost to try and recover it.
You should get all your correspondence together and post a thread on the BOI about this situation.

Im convinced this guy is feeding you a line of bull. A 10 year old taking pics and posting those threads and shipping snakes...? BS, i have a stepbrother whose 9, maybe he could post pics and the threads but theres no way he would know how to ship an animal. Have you heard back from NERD yet? Try calling them and asking to speak to Kevin personally. This is a case about his reputation on the line, i would say thats pretty important. When he shipped the box to you there must be a return address on the label. I cant tell you what i would do if I knew where he lived, but you know what im getting at...

I would definitely take this matter to NERD and have them go about pressing charges for impersonating them by forging false documents. The BOI over on faunaclassifieds.com will help get IP and home addresses as well as background info on this Guy. They are super sleuths over there.
