Type of a scam Online Purchase
My wife and I from Canada, was scams yesterday 6 April, 2018 by Home Raised Chihuahuas at the 10807 Warwick Ave, Fairfax, VA 22030 in USA. Seller Alan McDaniel phone number (540) 208-1012. Website http://www.homeraisedchihuahuas.com and the email used [email protected] also having a son called Jesse McDaniel.
My wife and I, were grieving the lost of our dog this past Monday 2 April and she couldn`t tolerate the missing love of such lost. Therefore, she was buying at the website Home Raised Chihuahuas, a Chihuahuas called NASH a male, age 11 weeks and 3 days old with a puppy ID 495690 and marking Fawn, Black. All looks so good then the cost is $700.00 USD and my spouse manage to agree only at 60% of the cost for a deposit and pay the other portion only once the dog arrive home in Canada airport. So we made a MoneyGram of $605.00 Cad to the vendor son Jesse McDaniel and it was cashed in.

Vendor email back; …………Sorry for the delay but there was a little problem at the airport. I have a crate that i use for the shipping but there have been changes in the regulations and now all pets have to be shipped in a temperature regulatory crate. So we need to rent a crate from them. They sent the following email. I read through it and the third option is the best option, where we pay $980 of which $900 will be refunded back to you at the time of delivery of Nash to you. I am so sorry and i was unaware of this, the regulations was changed 2 days ago. So please if you can, just pay the money to them as soon as possible so Nash won’t waste more time with them

Unfortunately Nash is still at the location you dropped him as I have to change the money gram twice and now cancel it all together because they changed the agent and the flight is a later one than originally anticipated. Lots of hassel with Pets Delivery Specialist. Not impressed and meanwhile poor Nash is just sitting there waiting. I had a bad feeling about this.
Therefore the light finely open that the overall thing is wrong major SCAM that when wrong on the part of travel. Thanks God, we freeze the MoneyGram of $1,375.00 Cad for the Eastern Animal Travel by calling the 1-800 number on the receipt before it was cashed in, therefore 100% was recovered
Got a call from 214-903-0025 seem to be from Waxahachie, TX saying puppy was in SAT airport but could not ship in the crate they needed 950.00 for the crate to ship in now only ½ hour left before plane is leaving. And other mystery phone number 552-365-8974
