Against the Wind Ranch AKA Sarah Chaney Purchased a Quarter Steer, never received it, company has gone off the radar McDowell Virginia
We found Against the Wind listed on the Eatwild MD website, and were looking to purchase some grass fed beef. On April 4th, we contracted to purchase a quarter steer from Against the Wind Ranch by placing a deposit through Paypal, and were told it would take 5-8 weeks before knowing the final hang weight of the beef. We were contacted on April 16th stating that they had the final hang weight of the meat and asked for a payment of the remaining balance of the weight.
We were contacted on May 28th by Sarah Chaney saying it would be about two more weeks because the "butcher was backed up."
On June 11th, I received another email from Sarah Chaney stating that they had the meat ready but would be unable to make it up to Front Royal where we would be meeting to pick up the meat. The reason was that they were dealing with flooding in VA.
Since that email I have been unable to reach Sarah and Against the Wind, and now I see that their website is no longer operational, they do not answer their phones, do not respond to emails, and they have been taken off of the Eatwild MD website.
We have lodged disputes with Paypal, but unfortunately they are beyond the 45 day limit, and have also sent a request for refund via an invoice directly to their accounts.
I believe this is an elaborate scam, and I would advise anyone to not do business with Sarah Chaney and Against the Wind Ranch (which may not exist anymore).
We are out a good chunk of money because of this and are seeking legal remedy.
