Unfortunately, the worm farm industry has been plagued by scammers for years. Many of these unscrupulous sellers rely on the lack of knowledge from new customers that are purchasing their worms. Here is the most common scam to be aware of:
Shorting on weight- A customer orders one pound of worms, and the seller only sends them a half pound. The seller's excuse is that worms lose weight is shipping. While it is true that worms do lose a small amount of weight in the shipping process, they do not lose half their weight. If your order is half the weight of what you paid for, then you have been scammed. As a business owner, I could never imagine treating my customers this way.
