Got together with some friends and talked them into buying bees and trying beekeeping. I have been a beekeeper for about three years. I have always bought bees in spring. Found nmhoney.com (aka, Ed Costanza, NM Honey, Costanza Orchards.) Communicated with his wife Louella via texting. (which I saved every text to back up this story). We ordered 5 Nuc hives on April 12th. We paid a total of $975 for them. We were promised delivery of the nucs within a few weeks as time would allow. A few weeks went by with no word. A few more weeks went by with no word so I contacted Louella. She said that it would be just a couple more weeks. Weeks turned to months. I even offered to pick up the bees or meet them in Mesa AZ where they winter the bees. Weeks turned to months. In June one of my friends who ordered 1 nuc hive and had a ferrel hive in his back yard was delivered a hive from these so called bee keepers. I asked why they brought a hive to my neighbor who lives a street away in the same town and did not bring our 5 nuc hives. Apparently they came becouse of the ferrel hive and also because they were costomers of the previous year! So if you have been a costomer in the past, they may bring your products but if you are a new costomer they may just take your money and not deliver anything. I kept in contact with Louella. Through out April, May, June, July and Aug. She would text me back until I asked for my money back in August. She stated that they don't give refunds. Well If you don't give refunds and you don't deliver items that are paid for than I guess that you are dealing with a fraudulent company. She has never text me back after her last text of no refund. $975 is alot of money.
This is a very suspicous and fradulent company and individuals. It has been so long now since I paid for the nucs I cant even get a refund from my bank. I am not sure how a company can steal from costomers and stay in business! I will do everything in my power to get the word out so nobody else looses this much money. Please do not do business with this company or these people. Even if you think you might get a product. Please obstain for me since myself and my friends are out $975. I dont know if they will reply to this or what excuse they might have but I have all payments and texts documented to back up this story.
