This lady Lauren is a total scam artist. She pretends to be a knowledgeable rabbit breeder, when what she really does is copy and paste other breeders posts so that she appears knowledgeable. She bad mouths other breeders also, which i thinks shows a lack of class.

Anyway, she posts pictures of 3 weeks old rabbits and asks you to send a deposit to be on her waiting list. Ok, that right there is a scam. I have since spoken to actual legitimate breeders and they say not only is that illegal, it's a terrible idea because theres no way to guarantee that a 3 week old bunny is going to make it past weaning.

Also, besides the failure to thrive at weaning issue, theres also nestbox eye as well as maloclussion. I was also told that she lies about having 23 years experience. None of the breeders i spoke to at a rabbit show have heard of her.

I guess she thinks that having a pet bunny 23 years ago when she was 12 counts as 23 years experience? Buyer beware. Do not fall victim to her scam like I did. She'll be getting a visit from the authorities, I'm sure.

Keepin it real

AUTHOR: Namaste - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, December 11, 2019

 Lauren... you and I both know that it was, in fact, YOU who called me from your blocked number on October 10th and left me the nastiest voicemail message ever, attacking my physical appearance and my husbands as well.

I'm sorry that you were brought up to think that aging NATURALLY is something to be ashamed of. Telling a woman that they need to have their face fixed is really a horrible thing to say. That attack, as well as ALL your attacks on me were unprovoked. I'd never had ANY dealings with you or knew who in the heck you were.

It was quite weird and I honestly feared for my safety. Clearly you were stalking my fb page when you referenced some of my vacation pics. I tried to ignore what you did, and chalked it up as just some jealous person with too much time on their hands. Still, I decided I should get the app called Trap Call, just to be safe, in case I got any more of your No Caller ID calls.

Boy am I glad I did! Apparently you were not satisfied leaving me hateful voicemails, because when you got wind through an Instagram post by my customer that they’d gotten an adorable Lionhead bunny from me, which had NOTHING to do with you, you DM’d them and told them all these lies about my rabbitry (which you’ve NEVER been to) and went so far as to grab random, disgusting pictures of rabbits off of the Internet and send them to MY customer, telling them "this is where your rabbit came from” and urging them to call AC.

Still you weren't done harassing me and called my phone AGAIN, leaving more really hateful voicemails. Honestly, you sounded like a CRAZY/REALLY MAD person spewing venom (still not sure why you were mad at ME!) but in your viscous rant you messed up because I was then able to see your phone number and also you referenced in your tirade the fact that AC had been called on me.

No one knew AC had been called on me except the person who did it (by the way he was SO apologetic for doing that) and YOU! Busted! I don’t need to deny anything I’ve said or done. That’s why I tried calling you and texting you from my NOT BLOCKED number. I just wanted to ask you to leave me alone!

You must have been shocked to see me trying to call you to try and get some clarification That is when you tried saying that you had just gotten your phone with the new number, which was really cowardly. I’m still wondering why you came at me the way you did, please tell me because i'd love to know! What did I ever do to you?

I really don’t understand why you don't just admit what you did and apologize! Everyone makes mistakes and that's just part of being human. A lapse in judgement is something everyone has done at one time or another and the best thing to do is say you're sorry, learn from it, and move on. You’re 100% right, they’re just bunny sales.

There’s no reason to be jealous or nasty! You know in your heart that you were wrong to come at me the way you did. It’s an unspoken rule among the breeding community that no matter how mad or jealous you may be, you don’t EVER call (or in your case strongly encourage) AC on one of us. I hope that you are ashamed for that. You have a nice life.

So Dianne Bartee Quaranta doesn't deny making the fake Ripoff Report about Sunnysocal bunnies

AUTHOR: This needs to end Dianne - (United States)

POSTED: Saturday, December 07, 2019

To whom it may concern;

Anyone who reads this thread should know this Ripoff Report was not created by any client of mine. Dianne, herself, clearly did not deny the wrong doings that she and her colleagues/relatives were accused of in my previous rebuttal.

Dianne Bartee Quarante admittedly told a client of mine "she had some of her friends email me to try and get my contact number". Why? I don't know you, other than the ads you've posted about me and the report you've created (not too mention the families who have sent me screenshots and messages of you harrassing them for my contact number).

I have no clue as to why you are obsessed with me? Have I ever posted a direct page, article, link, advertisment, etc. defaming your business or practicces? No, I haven't.. Have I ever called you? No, I haven't.. I work a fulltime job, I don't have time to play phone tag or harrass someone or even go out of my way to pay for fake ads on the recycler or hoobly like you and your clan have.

Can you please provide (for the general public reading this) a direct correlation to what you've claimed I've done to you (with my contact number included) I have screenshots (with your number) asking clients of mine for my contact information, and I also have screenshots (from your phone number) sending direct threats to me.

I will not stoop to that level as I don't wish to continue the hostility you and your friends have shown to me. Maybe you have someone who had a bad experience with your business who is set out to defame you (I did see your report from last year on two separate pages). I've never called you nor any of your friends (but I doubt you'll believe me anyways).

The only thing you have are transcribed messages on your phone from an individual you have assumed is me (with no contact information)???

I'm not too sure if you are aware, but these are rabbits, just pet rabbits. And yes, why wouldn't I get the police involved when I receive messages like "You better place nice" and "I'll leave you alone when you leave me alone" and then those messages are followed with google images of a house, wouldn't that cause any logical person to file an incident report in the event your stalking goes further?

I can certainly post those texts here, but then again, why? Would that remedy anything? I've have never been harrassed, stalked, or repeatedly defamed in any industry I've worked in, ever! Until now! This is absolute asinine!

Would you also like my ARBA trophies, Championship LEGS, or Grand Champion certificates dating back to 1996 as well? Since you want to make such absurb accusations? I'm not a "jealous breeder", that term would actualy insinuate I am envious of you (which I'm not since I don't know much of anything about you).

My only hope is you will leave me alone and continue doing what you love to do best, hopefully in a positive constructive fashion. All I can truly say is I am sorry you have gone through something similar where someone has tried tarnished your name. I wish you the best of luck in future business endeavors. I am asking (for the probably 5th time) TO PLEASE STOP HARRASING ME.

I am Diane the one Lauren says she’s never heard of

AUTHOR: Diane - (United States)

POSTED: Friday, December 06, 2019

  I am the person Lauren from Sunnysocalbunnies claims to have never had any interaction with. I have never met her or heard of her until Oct 10th when she started leaving me very nasty and vulgar voicemails. I will provide a couple that we’re transcribed. I have others as well That didn’t transcribe but are voice only.

I received a phone call from a man who bought a beautiful Lionhead bunny from me. He informed me that Sunnysocalbunnies talked him into calling animal Control on me and sent him fake pictures of sick rabbits in disgusting conditions and told him they were mine and they were living in such deplorable conditions that he should call animal control which he did.

Animal control came out and looked at my bunnies. He said they were the most beautiful rabbits he’d ever seen and told me this call was completely unfounded and apologized for the trouble and said the case was closed. The only thing I can think of is this sunnysocalbunnies is a jealous breeder.

I can think of no other reason she would be calling me since October and leaving very vulgar voicemails. She hides behind blocked numbers and will never talk to me personally. I text her as well as called her from my real number, not a blocked number like she did and asked her to call me and of course she never did.

She then went to the police dept to bother them with ridiculousness. She is more than welcome to call me anytime to discuss this nonesense. Diane

I am Harley and I did not leave the above report

AUTHOR: Harley - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, December 02, 2019

 My name is Harley and we bought a bunny from SunnySoCal bunnies and I did not write this report that has been posted in my name. This is a fake report disguised behind my name, and should in no way be indicative of how we feel about SunnySoCalBunnies, whom we trust and respect very much. The bunny we got from her is extremely sociable and sweet tempered and we love her and have no complaints. SunnySoCalBunnies is a wonderful bunny breeder and we can’t wait to add another bunny to our family through our respected and well loved breeder.

The report was created by another "breeder(s)" (Dianne Bartee Quaranta, her sister Deanne Bartee-Nakken, and colleague June Corden)

AUTHOR: The actual truth - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, December 02, 2019

I have no idea who these 3 women are but after review (from an accidental harrassing screenshot they sent me) they are other breeders of Holland Lop Bunnies, Lionhead bunnies, and many other various breeds. I have no known interaction with any of these women and I have no idea as to why they are harrassing me. Unfortunately for them, their I.P. address was tracked from the numerous hate listings they have posted about me and a police report was filed. In any event, the case No. 193290293, under deputy Allen. I have never accepted a deposit for a "3 week old bunny" as they claimed, and I have certainly not refused anyone a refund with their deposit as claimed from above. I have a full time career, and unlinke these three women, I don't use nor need animals sales as a sole income. My suggestion to these ladies, as I am sure they are reading this, is to find a hobby or life aside from your rabbits. Stalking, texting, calling, and posting fake ads after repeatedly being told to stop IS A CRIME. If you would like the actual penal codes that I am referencing please don't hesitate to contact me for further details. Once again, I should reiterate, I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THESE WOMEN are or WHY I AM A TARGET of their hate. I've never done business with them nor had no clue, until recently, who they are.

Do not put money down on a bunny that is younger than 8 weeks old. There are many things that can happen between birth and weaning.
