    Dried Beetles?

    Hi all.

    I have a person who has contacted me through facebook. He is a "dried beetle" dealer and wants to talk about some possible business. He is from Tanzania. I am skeptical and thought I'd ask here if any of you have heard of such a thing. The dried beetle market can't be that big can it? I've never heard of it. I live in Florida.

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can impart.

    Collectors can be a strange breed at times. There might be money in it if you know what you're doing, but I'd be surprised if there was much volume in it.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Hopefully it's not a scam. Just keep your common sense hat on and don't let them appeal to greed.

    There is also a market for this in South Africa.

    How is yours going thus far?

    I hadn't heard from him so I guess it was not real important. I'd rather stick to what I know anyway but I am grateful for your the forum and the advice.
