AVOID! In a world of confusion amongst spore vendors, this site stands out as one of the more confusing. While we had a single positive experience in the past (2017), our opinion of this vendor has changed significantly in 2019. In the past few months we’ve heard that people are sending money to SOS, and not receiving product! With this in mind – SOS has been moved to the AVOID category.
Recently, our disappointment grew even more when a concerned customer started targeting other (legit) vendors accusing them as being “in cahoots” with SOS (based off some flimsy opinions). This sort of confusion is what leads folks to not trust the mycology community, and increases the level of difficulty involved in safely continuing their research.
If we were to theorize what caused their decline, it might be that a desire for cash, and a dark soul, was more than their desire to help their fellow mankind, and the research community. That’s a darn shame.
BOTTOM LINE: Their encouragement on their site that they can be trusted and that credit card companies or folks like PayPal cannot is FALSE and we’d encourage that you steer clear of this vendor.
