Type of a scam Online Purchase

This website advertises pug puppies for sale. I contacted them and asked for photos. They texted and emailed frequently and sent several photos. Two were very professional looking and they sent a video too but it did not have the dog I was asking about. They wanted to ship the dog but I said I’d come pick him up instead. They said no problem and gave me a street address in Minneapolis. When they asked for a deposit by zelle I got suspicious and started searching. Within 2 minutes I learned that the photos had been taken from an instagram account and the address had been taken from an online real estate listing. I didn’t send them any money but came very close. Such a bummer – attached is an example of one of the photos
