I'm posting this to some different forums hoping someone can help me. Thanks.
I got this tree from e-Bay. It is supposed to be a avocado. I've never seen one myself so can't say for sure. It is for a Christmas present. Shortly after I received it I got two e-mails from other e-Bayer's saying they had also bought from this person and didn't think their plants were avocados. I'm going to be so sad if it's not because my friend has wanted one for years and I can't find another one.
I just read your comments on Plant ID. I'm sorry to hear you were scammed. It sure looks like an avacado though. Well, take care of it still and see what it may be. It's not the poor little tree's fault. Maybe it will be something nice.
Hi Bettydeee, I got it from e-bay. Here is what I posted on the ID forum when I found out it really wasn't an avocado.
Well I found out it's not a avocado. One of the others that ordered from this same person on e-Bay got the same plants as me and at least one other person. He was familiar with avocados and knew it wasn't one. So he posted his fake avocados for sale on e-Bay with the story and name of the person he got them from. She immediately closed her account.
I got scammed. I guess that's a chance I took. One of the others said pay-pal wouldn't reimburse them because the product had been delivered.
Thanks everybody for trying to help.
I'm trying to get my money back via Pay-Pal. So we'll see how that goes. Thanks for all your information. The leaves on my plants are thick and scentless. I am just disappointed because it was supposed to be a Christmas gift for someone who has been wanting one for a long time. At least I found out before I gave it to them.
