Went to adopt a puppy paid for the little guy through Western Union, then they asked for more money something to do with a different crate…. we did not give them the money. He said he was going to do everything he could to get our puppy to us. Now the puppy never came and he will not respond to us or give our money back.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

While searching for a new puppy we ran across the website and the puppies were cute and had a reasonable, almost too good to be true, price. The "breeder" had told us, via email, that the puppy was still available. He had told us to transfer $700 by Walmart to Walmart money transfer. We tried to send the money but, luckily, something went wrong and we were able to get our money back. He then requested the $700 sent by Amazon gift card. We bought 2 gift cards, $350 on each, and once the "puppy" had been "sent" we sent him one. After him we then had to deal with their transport company, which was also a scam company. The puppy was supposed to be delivered on a Friday, but non-existent delays kept it from being delivered till the Tuesday after that. On the morning of that Tuesday we got an email from the transport company saying that they wanted us to pay a $290 refundable fee via Western Union to cover the costs of them having to take care of the puppy. We refused to pay until we had a dog in front of us.
