Initial contact was made via email through the website of www.homeofdachshundpuppies.com. An email was sent to us from [email protected] asking if we were local. They provided a phone number and informed us that a female puppy was still available. They then made contact via text and explained that they would have to be sent money via moneygram because their payment systems were not up and running. He provided many pictures of the puppy and her parents. I decided to call and attempt to speak to the person who provided him name as Hosea Forsoh of Houston Texas: 8027 Arrowhead Lane. His phone number is (469)207-1973. Once the money was provided, a fake invoice and paperwork was provided from a pet transportation relocation company. This relocation company is called Pets Air Relocation. We received a call from (281)895-1504 and an email from this fake company. They went as far as setting up the website to allow the invoice to be entered as a real submission. The person claimed to have a puppy for us and would be delivered the next morning. The next morning I called and as told they would have to check the markings on the puppy and never answered the phone again. Both parties had a very strong Haitian accent.
We were scammed out of $750.00 and would like people to be aware. The photos used were later found on google using a reverse image photo which I wish we had known about sooner.
These scammers need to be stopped before they scam anyone else.
