Type of a scam Online Purchase
While looking for a dog for my son I came across this site on pintrest and I contacted them. They sent me a questionnaire to fill out to make sure I was suitable for adoption. I filled it out and sent it back. Upon approval, they gave me the details of where to send the payment along with the information about the dog and a mp.4 video of the dog as well. When we were making preparations about the shipping, then they needed two more payments. One was for a shipping company and one was for more vaccinations. I was told they would both be refunded. Of course none of them were.
I’ve included images of the documents and I’ve copied the emails below. I realize that I’ll never get my money back ($2665) so I am using this as an opportunity to teach my son to never trust anyone. It’s a lesson that will take him far in life. I also hope no one else has to deal with these people because nothing happens to scammers. They don’t even bother to take down their sites or change their phone numbers and email addresses anymore because they know they will be fine. We will complain and that’s about all that will happen.

DEAR ******* ******,
Thanks for your patience. This is to confirm that we have received payment of $960 from Ms. Christina for Insurance, and Temperature Control Crate for your puppy. We wish to inform you that, your puppy is now ready to proceed with his delivery to BALTIMORE WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT today. But the Health and Quarantine department of our company wishes to bring to your knowledge that during a routine health inspection of your puppy 30 minutes ago, we discovered that not all rules and regulations were met in regards to the health and vaccinations of your puppy.
We are unable to proceed with the delivery of your puppy to your location at the moment because of lack of the following vaccines below. The problem here is that your puppy needs the following vaccinations below to treat the growing stress issue due to long waiting time. We conducted another test on him and found out that he has some minor stress issues. Your puppy will be stable and ready to continue with his delivery to your location today after taking these vaccines. These are all common stress related issues which occur during the delivery of puppies.

YOUR REFUND WILL BE $960 + $885 = $1,885. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE COPIES OF THE PAYMENT RECEIPT.
This is also not an additional fee. you will get 100% of the $885 added to your refunds by our delivery agent when she gets to the airport with your puppy today. all you need to get money back is to also keep a copy of the CASH APP payment screenshot or receipt for this payment as you will be required to show it to our delivery agent for your refund at the airport. Our insurance sector has already cover you for this payment so, you don’t need to worry about anything. your puppy is now ready for delivery and will be in the next available flight to BALTIMORE WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.
