Maria, Seek Legal Action for slander!!

AUTHOR: cheryl - ()

This person is lying because I know Maria. It is ridiculous that these false allegations are allowed to be filed. This site protects itself from malicious lawsuits because it is the opinion of the alleged consumer. However, the KEY WORD here is ALLEGED consumer. How does anyone know that this person actually purchased a bird? Or is just out to slander Maria? I find the reports themselves to be hideous because they say she sells sick birds, deformed birds and steals other peoples pictures. The titles of these complaints alone should inform other consumers that they are scandelous.Im gonna tell you why right now.

1. If you were looking at pictures of birds to purchase and they said Marias Birds on them, how would you come to the conclusion that they were pictures of someone elses birds?

2. If a bird is so sick that it is going to die 2 days later, wouldnt it show some signs of lethargy/illness when you went to pick it up? Why would you go to pick up a bird that wasnt the picture of the bird on the ad? Wouldnt you notice when you went to get it? Would you purchase it anyway?

3. If a bird was deformed in any way, shape or form, wouldnt you notice its deformities when you went to look at it and/or pick it up? Deformed is deformed if its a dog, cat or bird. We would all know a deformity if we saw one and would refuse to buy the animal.

These allegations are the most absurd thing I have ever read in my life.

Call Maria, go look at her bird, look at her facilities. They are her babies . They are her life. You will meet a wonderful human being that will give you a beautiful bird that will change your life for the better! I only pray that her babies get as good of a home as they started life with. I only hope that the person who is saying these things is proven to be a fraud. Maria, get an attorney, if you need us, we are there. We love you for who you are. Most of us have met you as consumers, but now we are friends, for life. I would NEVER go to anyone else. Thank you for being you!!

AUTHOR: cheryl - ()

I have a couple of questions. Is it that Maria allegedly steals pictures or allegedly sells sick birds? The title of this complaint tells me alot. Whoever wrote it does not make any sense. First of all, you say she was using other peoples photos, then why would you buy a bird from this person? Or are you saying you bought a bird and now you are saying they were someone elses photos? Im VERY confused by the weird  allegations you are making.

I met Maria looking for a new bird for myself as all I have ever had are parakeets. I discussed different types of birds with her as I got her number from looking at her ads. By the way, her name MARIA was on all of her photos. She was very helpful to me and I am now the proud owner of 3 beautiful lovebirds. I can call Maria anytime, day or night and she will stop whatever it is she is doing and answer my questions. Usually she is tending to her own birds as she explained it is an all day job to take proper care of them and give them the attention they need when all of the work is done.

I can assure you, I have talked to many people about birds and NONE of them gave the attention and care that this young lady does. She is truly dedicated to it. She has offered her assistance no matter what my situation was, such as my lovebirds laying eggs and explaining to me how to candle them, dietary improvements, toy suggestions, you name it she is right there willing to help. She doesnt make a dime guiding people, she is that loving of a person and she adores each and every one of her own animals. 

If you doubt what I am saying, look at her ads and call her, just once. You will have a wonderful experience and a friend for life. Its that simple. You wont regret it. She will open her heart to you, her knowledge to you and her door to you. I wouldnt go to anyone else, not when Ive got the best right here. See for yourself, she has a beautiful heart.

Maria's Birds owner, breeder, Maria Dawe consummate professional!

AUTHOR: DebCha - (United States of America)

Maria NEVER sells sick and/or 'deformed' birds. I've known Maria, been to her home and have one of her birds, a beautiful green Quaker.

Ms. Dawe is registered on reputable breeder sites and has hundreds of satisfied, happy bird owners such as myself --- locally and from around the country.

Why this ONE person (who is known for a fact to use many aliases in order to file several bogus 'complaints' here), and and is known by other reputable avian breeders for doing exactly what he/she accuses Ms. Dawe of doing---and much worse, persists on filing complaints that frankly, have NO bearing on truth, is beyond me.

A lot of breeders may use pictures to depict the various breeds of birds they raise and sell. This
practice that isn't unusual in the industry. That stated....Ms. Dawe posts actual pictures of her birds from hatch date to ready to sell date. Ms. Dawe doesn't just breed birds---she hand raises them to be healthy, sweet, friendly and well-behaved pets.

Anyone with any amount of intelligence who reads the complainant can clearly tell by the tone and misspelled words that the individual is not close to being a professional, which is a huge red flag that speaks to their lack of credibility.

I added this rebuttal only to bring attention to the fact that any professional worth their 'salt' would not go about doing what the complainer does: write in red capital letters; endless repetition of the same phrases, gratuitous usage of exclamation points and rambles-on sounding very much like a grade school student. (One only has to see his/her numerous past attention seeking posts that prove my point).

Who'd think to buy a bird (or any kind of animal for that matter), from the complainant?

If you're looking for healthy, lovingly hand-raised birds, Mariasbirds.com should be at the top of your list. She's a kind, sincere and as genuine a person you will meet and get to know as I have.
I respectfully suggest that the complainant re-direct their energy by living a life that's more positive, for the sake of his/her own karma. What he/she's been putting out to the universe will come back to haunt in a big way.

Or better said in terms they may understand: give it a rest already!

Maria is a great breeder

AUTHOR: Trish G. - (United States of America)

I am getting a bird from Maria, and she has been awesome. She cares for the birds so much. She is there to answer any and all questions I have.

This report is a joke. The person posting it is the one guilty of all the things she is accusing Maria of doing. Maria is a very honest person and has heathy birds with no reason to steal pictures from others.

I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy. If we decide to get another one in the future I already know who we will go to!

Maria's Birds in Wheatfield NY CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONALS!

AUTHOR: DebCha - (United States of America)

I've personally known Maria for over two years and have one of her birds that she hand-fed and hand trained, a lovely and sweet Quaker parrot named Sammie. I've been to her home, spoken with her several times and we email and text each other often. PLEASE NOTE: I'm a mature woman, 58,yrs. old.

I'm a member in good standing with the Erie County SPCA, and support animal charities. I have the respect of my community and that of several local politicians and law enforcement. My 'resum', is impeccable.

I know what animal abusers and rip-off artists look like, and folks, if any of you reading the nasty and LIBELOUS and SLANDEROUS words of a woman who calls herself by several different names: "Michelle Fazio", "Robin Schulder" and "Lisa Risi", to name three, you have to ask yourself just who is the one who's the fake here....and it's not Maria Dawe.

Maria, who is much younger than myself, is who I'd call an "old soul"---she has the maturity of a person much older than her young age would indicate. She runs a fair and square operation and would NEVER sell, steal or otherwise cheat anyone. She adores her animals, whether they're birds, dogs, cats or lizards. She literally would not hurt a fly, let alone furry or feathered.

Her ratings on the Internet, particularly on her web site:mariasbirds.com, are genuine and sincere.

If I could, I'd file a class-action suit against the woman who is saying these LIBELOUS and SLANDEROUS things about Maria, and shut her down----the trouble is, locating a scam-artist is akin to nailing jello to a wall---it's nearly impossible.

IF "Michelle"/"Robin"/"Lisa", et al were an honest vendor, she wouldn't have the numerous complaints for fraud, cashing checks for animals she never had AND for selling sick or nearly dead animals...let alone have all those "aka's".

The bottom line is that Maria Dawe dba "Mariasbirds.com" is one of THE most caring, nurturing and loving breeder of birds. When I went to her home to take my Sammie home, she was petting him the entire time and Sammie was loving it---I almost felt bad for separating them, so that's one reason why I've kept in touch with Maria, and take Sammie for grooming, so she could see for herself how well he's doing.

One last thing: Dr. Jay Geasling of the Sheridan Animal Hospital has checked-out MANY of Maria's birds and has nothing but kind words and an A+ exam rating for any of her birds he's seen. Believe THAT! Someone who abuses animals or allegedly sells deformed or sick birds won't bother going to an avian Veterinarian...period. I'm guessing loudmouth "Michelle"/"Robin"/"Lisa" doesn't...

Maria has NOTHING to hide, believe me! I'd do business with her again and again knowing that I'm going to get a loving, sweet, HEALTHY, QUALITY bird, if only I had the budget and space!

So "Michelle"/"Lisa"/"Robin" and whoever else you call yourself, you can spout off all you want, your credibility, (such as you imagine it to be), means nothing to EVERY happy and healthy bird Maria has raised, as well as to the homes of the people Maria's birds have gone to live.

So please, unless you have a bona-fide, LEGITIMATE complaint that you can back up in a court of law, stop your nonsense. You're wasting valuable space for legitimate RipOff reports.

Look up Maria. Contact her. Check out the real feedback on her site and on FaceBook. Buy with confidence and know exactly what you're getting from an honest, registered breeder with a great reputation and the backing of her customers and her veterinarian on record. You'll NEVER BE SORRY!

I have nothing to gain by saying what I've written other than the satisfaction of standing up for someone who is legitimately caring, honest and fair. Maria has a perfectly positive reputation from customers all over to back it up.

AUTHOR: Rosibuf - (United States of America)

Maria is the single most educated person I have ever met on birds.   When I first met Maria I wasn't sure what type of bird I wanted for my family.  My previous bird experience had only been with tiels and quakers.  Maria took the time to go over all different breeds of birds and how they might fit with us.  She had plenty of birds thast were alot more explensive that she could have talked me into at any point and I would have gone for.   I went to her house a couple of times to look at various breeds they were ALWAYS healthy and the same bird listed as available online.   In the end I opted for a regular green quaker.  Maria has made this whole experience a pleasure!!

Character Reference

AUTHOR: Diana - (United States of America)

I am a customer of Marias, I have purchased numerous birds from her. She has always been very helpful. My parrots came to me shipped very professionally, in a clean crate with food and water. They were exactly as described and were healthy. I would purchase from her again and recommend her to others.

i suggest maria look into legal action for this slander !

AUTHOR: crystal&myles - (United States of America)

the person making these absurd claims needs to be
stopped !! it seems this web site needs some kind of monitoring ! its
ridiculous that maria dawe from mariasbirds.com is being attacked like
this daily from the same person making false accusations on this site !

in the future maybe adding watermarks to the photos can prevent theft of pictures and can help prevent theses false accusations ! it is horrible that a great business woman like maria can be publicly slandered by the real con artist , personally i suggest legal action be looked into !!!!

maria is a wonderful breeder !! i have no questions that maria dawe is
very honest and dedicated to her calling of breeding birds! she offers
health guarantees for her happy healthybirds, plenty of photo updates on her babies till they are ready to go to their new homes and also offers continued support to customers even after they have taken their bird home ...her feedback from REAL customers speaks for itself !!

Childish BS

AUTHOR: Jen - (United States of America)

I'm going to be having my lawyer look into this person posting this stuff. :o) we got her name that's all we need. 

Maria's birds has a good rep and it will stay that way. If you want to truly know how she is why don't you just call her yourself and don't listen to these " children " that have nothing better to do with their time then to falsely accuse someone of something that is not true just because they got caught doing something illegal.
