Misleading and deceptive conduct in a Google Advert

Reptile Party ®
Scam Warning!
Fake Google Adverts!
Scammer webpages!

Trademark infringing thieves are trying to scam you with inferior and unsafe wildlife displays!
They illegally place adverts on Google triggered by searches for our registered trademarks Reptile Party ® Snake Man ®, Reptile Parties ® or Snakebusters ®.
When you click through the adverts you are then diverted to slick, outwardly legitimate, but illegally operated websites run by thieves pretending they are us or otherwise deceptively similar to us.
These people are not us or associated with us in any way!
When caught out unlawfully bootlegging our brands, Reptile Party ® , Snakebusters ® , Reptile Parties ® or Snakeman ® these scoundrels mascquerading as us make false and defamatory claims against us in order to divert potential clients to their usually unsafe alternative.
The fake “Reptile Party”, "snake man" and other illegal adverts (examples of which are shown here), are illegal under consumer laws, trademark laws, the wildlife act and also in breach of Court orders issued by the Federal Court and Magistrates Courts like the example posted here.
The scammers taking out the illegal Google adverts as shown on this webpage are nothing more than law-breaking thieves.
Remember who they are by name, as they are crooks and you don't want to deal with them!
These liars and cheats offer potentially unsafe wildlife displays and because they steal from us, they'll steal from you if they see an opportunity (see examples below).
The cost of dealing with one of these trademark infringing fakers may be far more than they quote over the phone.
Stewart Gatt is a trademark infringing thief, criminal and a scammerRecently, one man working with the trademark infringing imitators, Matthew Gatt was convicted and fined $8,000 in March 2019 at the Melbourne Magistrates Court. He had committed a major act of theft at a Reptile Party three months prior!
Another Gatt, Stewart Gatt, besides constantly taking out illegal Google Adverts like the "snake man" one shown on this page, also regularly makes false and defamatory claims against the real Snake Man ® and our dedicated team, in breach of court orders like the one shown here. His wife, Crystal Kniese evidently spends her days trolling the internet spreading hate about Snake Man and when bored makes telephone death threats from a blocked phone number, a recording of one such example being posted here. And they are only some of the criminals who are law-breaking trademark infringing thieves or associates who have been busted for acts of theft and related offences and been hit with fines and/or restraining orders by the courts!
Problem is, these crooks are experts at evading the law, they ignore court restraining orders (as seen in the examples on this very page) and keep placing their illegal adverts to snare their next victims.
In court they plead bankruptcy to avoid repaying their victims...
The Snakeman ®, Raymond Hoser ® owns the registered trademarks for Reptile Party ®, Reptile Parties ® and Snakebusters ® and has owned the trademarks for decades.
This means that no one else is allowed to trade or use these words as a badge of origin or as a trigger for Google adverts marketing any form of wildlife show or snake catching service.
Unauthorised use of the trademarks in Google Adverts as seen in the examples on this page is an even more serious crime!
If there is not the ® trademark symbol on the advert or the webpage immediately next to the words Reptile Party, Reptile Parties, Snakeman or Snakebusters, and you deal with them, then you have been scammed. It is that simple.
Do not be fooled by slick looking webpages, bogus information and fake five star testimonials by the unsafe imitators.
These people ripping off our Reptile Party ® or Snakeman ® brands are nothing more than law-breaking thieves.
So who are these copycats, thieves and the owners of the scamming businesses?
They include the likes of Seth Pywell, recently convicted and fined with a friend for shooting two potential clients.
Then there is Damien Mark Harding and Andrew Browne, both operating in the wildlife displays or snake handling business and both separately charged and convicted as child sex offenders.
Yes the victims were their clients!
These could have been your kids if you had done business with them.
There is David John Williams, convicted and fined $7,500 for animal cruelty and aggravated animal abuse. And there are others who have committed similar crimes against children and animals.
Another imitator unlawfully attacking the Reptile Party ® and Snake Man ® trademarks is the notorious Jamie Benbow. He is best known as a large-scale trafficker of Methamphetamines including ecstasy, with numerous criminal convictions and having served jail time for some of the crimes he's committed. Since being released from jail, he has continued to act outside the law and established a reputation for trolling the internet using various accounts to undermine the Snakebusters ® and Reptile Party ® brands in order to divert clients to unsafe imitators in his cohort.
Do you really want an ecstacy dealer and his cohort entertaining your children?
Another illegal fake Google AdvertUnfortunately most of these criminals are now out of jail and back on the streets.
This is where they and their cohort are back to doing what they do best, which includes things like taking out illegal Google adverts, ripping off our Reptile Party ®, Snakebusters ® or Snakeman ® brands, dealing in drugs that kill innocent children, assaulting people, engaging in animal abuse and wildlife crimes and if they can, stealing from you or your kids.

Recently Snakeman ® Raymond Hoser ®, Snakebusters ® and the Reptile Party ® have successfully sued trademark infringers in the Federal Court, Magistrates Court and VCAT on several occasions and most of the time, the scamming serial offenders have pled bankruptcy and hidden their assets from the court. This has made it effectively impossible for us to recover damages.
In these matters, we got orders against the thieves, but the court does not have power to take money from them (as they have pled bankruptcy) and so we get left with a legal bill. With this knowledge the offenders continue to place illegal adverts or get their friends to do so at their instigation.
