My poor dad lost his best friend and chihuahua last November and instantly fell in love with a puppy named Gus from Miliano chihuahuas.
He was sent the exact same email as OP but the address was in CA versus TX.

I almost fell into it but I have been investigating so much that they stopped e-mailing me. Thank God I kept searching cause the price was to good to be true! I was trying to get Simba. Beware ! Always do your homework. I was going back and fourth with e-mails and I guess I was asking to many questions. I was asking to see parents like 3 times in a e-mail. Here is some e-mails they sent to me Thank you so much for your reply, I am so happy to know that you are willing to adopt Simba into your home.
More details on his personalities.
-He is not yet neutered
-He is house and potty trained
-He eat 2 times daily
-He is socialized with kids and other house hold pets .
-He likes to be carried a lot and be spoiled.
-He likes to be kissed

Its awful to see that this is happening to more than just me. We just wanted a sweet puppy for our growing home. They were quick to respond when I needed to send the money so I sent the money over to my sister and she payed with paypal and she questioned why the money HAD to be sent to friends and family… I should have known when she questioned me! I tried to pay with the Zelle app but because I bank with a credit union it wouldnt accept it. So now I thankfully have my money back thanks to my bank and not PayPal as they said there was no fraudulent activity. I am now looking at purchasing a beautiful Blue Chi from a local breeder after much more research! Hopefully they are shut down! What an awful thing to do to people!

How did you get your money back?

Miliano Chihuahuas had a 15 year anniversary special. $650 a pup so I ordered 2. Anna and Jenna. Had to pay through Zelle but I didn’t have $1100 in my checking so they suggested Cash App. They send send $150 initially then send the remaining balance. So $150 came out of my checking. Then they said go to Walmart so I did. I got a gift card for $500 and $450. The clerk asked is this a scam and I said no this is legit. I mean they had testimonies and credentials and a flawless introduction. Anyway the flight itinerary was missing flight numbers of which my daughter noticed. She also told me real professionals don’t have gmails and typos. So supposedly the pups left San Jose CA and were in Texas. So 45 minutes before leaving Texas to Omaha they ( Amarex Delivery) said they needed to change crates from ventilated to thermal for $1500 but I would get 95% back which would make it a $75 crate. I asked my daughter to drive me to Walmart to get three more $500 gift cards and having her own business saw right away I was being scammed. I couldn’t believe it. I never thought it would happen to me. Always buy locally. Petfinder is good as I’m now waiting to apply for a chihuahua/ dachshund mix. I reported to fraud .com or.org also.

We tried to purchase a Chihuahua named Simba, he was supposed to be shipped to us we used zelle and paid $650. The next day we got a call from the shipment company saying because of covid19 that we needed to pay $1500 dollars to rent the crate because they weren’t allowing outside crates. So I sent it to what I thought was the company. Then they said we need animal insurance that was $500. Then they said they needed money for the dogs shots and a permit…which we refused to pay they say they are going to get us for animal cruelty…all I wanted was to get a puppy for my children and now we have been taken advantage of in a time of crisis. I hope no one else goes through this!

Victim Location 43054
Total money lost $674.54
Type of a scam Other
Miliano Chihuahua puppies offered a deal that was too good to be true. $650 for pure bred puppies shipped on a plane anywhere in the country. When I figured out it was a scam, they refused to refund my $674 that was PayPal to a Kenyan name. Stopped communication and that was that. I was scammed!

This just happened to me the other day with Miliano! I was lucky enough my bank stopped the payment and refunded my full amount. I am now looking at a breeder in my own state who’s real. What an awful thing to do to people!
