I ordered some herbal kratom tea and kratom resin from iamshaman.com

unlike other companies, they do not send their product in a crush proff box. My order was sent to me in a cheap little paper envelope. They had not even bothered to seal the plastic bag that held the kratom.

The actual product was completely ineffective and did not do what it was supposed to do.

The charge appeared on my credit card bill under ANOTHER company's name.

An email sent to their company was not replied to.
I did some internet research and found that I'm not the only guy who's been scammed by this outfit, and apparently the owner's name is Keith Cleversley. Evasiveness is their trademark , and as one guy who got ripped off told me "they're a pretty tough nut to crack."
Dont waste your time with these guys.

Not for me...

AUTHOR: MartyTheophilus - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, August 23, 2016

 I am sorry to heart that they didn't respond, seems their are many kratom vendors who are afraid to admit that their product is meant to be consumed for an enjoyablenor healthful experience. It is bad business to ignore a customer, so I pray for these fellas. However, I just enjoyed some kratom tea last night from Mr. Cleversley's shop, and it was quite enjoyable.(Crushed maeng Da leaf.)

However, the botanical defense league advises people not to buy from kratom vendors who write, "not intended for human consumption" on their packaging, as many of these products say on the package. I reccomend their Kanna extracts. I believe they are good people with good intentions. I have noticed that kratom batches can be hit or miss, from the same vendors. 

Here is a link to the kratom vendor guide I am refering to,

What a piece of work you are, Alex

AUTHOR: Kendy - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, May 13, 2010

The previous comment was made by Alexandre Dimov aka "Al Grand" aka "Allegrand".
He is based out of Las Vegas, NV and runs his own scam companies such as salviasociety.org which ripped me off for $39.95 months ago and k2incense.org where he sells a product that contains research chemicals (which he does not tell his customers) and has sent dozens of people to the hospital.

What is so ironic about his comments is that when someone exposes him as a scammer on this or any other site, Alex spends a lot of time posting rebuttals claiming every post is written by a "single bitter competitor". Although lately, his psychosis has escalated and he now claims they are written by his ex wife (who was only married to him for 7 months and divorced him 2 years ago) or by his ex girlfriend who took out a restraining order against him last year and wants absolutely nothing to do with him. So now it looks like Alex is the bitter competitor badmouthing the competition with nothing to back it up.

Let's look at your post, Alex. First you write, "iamshaman.com is a scma operation ran out of Chicago, IL, just like Al Capone back in the day." Do you mean that he wears a zoot suit and machine guns his enemies in the streets? It's a pretty nonsensical statement but nothing compared to this next one: "The scammer is very sleek." Uh... did you mean he has nice lines or were you unable to come up with the word "slick"? How about this jewel: "He will steal your money and then steal more." Why on earth would anyone send him more money after they had been ripped off? Does he sneak into their houses while they sleep and steal more money? Because I don't think anyone would willingly send more money to someone who ripped them off.

You sound like a fool, Alex. And not a very credible one at that. Maybe it's best that you just shut up before you make yourself look like a bigger idiot than you already appear to be. Take your own advice and stop spreading false rumors about your competition before they sue you.

Iamshaman.com is a scam

AUTHOR: Allegrand - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, December 20, 2009

iamshaman.com is a scma operation ran out of Chicago, IL, just like Al Capone back in the day.  The scammer is very sleek.  He will steal your money and then steal more. It's the same company that owns a bunch of other fake salvia websites like salviamonster.com salviafarm.us salviaextracts.com salviadragon.com ethnobotanicals.com and a couple of more i can't recall right now.

They have ALWAYS done me right.

AUTHOR: Tj - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, July 14, 2007

I have ordered from IAmShaman MULTIPLE times and they have always done AMAZING. They don't overcharge on shipping and I receive their product very quickly. The product has ALWAYS been of great potency and I have never had a problem there. They have my deep respect and always reply to all of my comments quickly. I'm sure your experience must be a rare one.

PS They TELL you that they will charge your credit card with their parent company SpiritualScents...it's part of their discretion, nothing shady there.

That is complete bull that the owner is not Keith Cleversley, I have known him for over six years now and was the person who taught him how to isolate salvinorin.

Keith is hiding the fact that he owns that company because he is ashamed of the fact that he is in the business of selling entheogens. He owns www.PlaygroundStudio.com - www.Cleversley.com and www.IamShaman.com and a dozen other entheogen related web sites such as http://www.salvia-divinorum.com which he has a fake address going to Peru for if you try to track it down.

I don't know why he is so dishonest about all his business dealings but my man, that is how he is. Anyone want to get more info on this go to my web site http://www.imageevent.com/sphere - contact me, I will be glad to say more.

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Thursday, March 16, 2006

well, they did resend my order, after i raised hell...which i guess shows some commitment to customer service, and they said this cleversley fellow has nothing to do with them....so i guess they are ok but due to lack of product consistency ill take my business elsewhere in the future
