They have set up a website about selling Corgi puppies. You have to contact them through the website. They then email you and go through the motions of selecting the dog, answering questions about your home, etc. They then set up everything and have you paypal them the money for the dog and say they’ll get you the flight information and seller contract right to you. Then you never hear back.

Almost got caught in this scam. I also contacted “Pembroke Welsh Corgi Pups Home” and was also interested in “DIANA” it wasn’t until time of payment was due that the email address and the request to send it via friends and family that I notice something fishy. I requested DANIEL’s Last name telling him Paypal was asking for it and in return I was asked to send funds to another address. Dodged a bullet here.

This website is listing puppies that he/she found on Instagram and is scamming people out of a lot of money and getting their hopes up. I attempted to purchase one, but everything seemed too good to be true so I decided to search up the puppy who I had selected (he had a name tag on in some of the pictures I was sent) and I found an Instagram page for that exact puppy – with matching photos! So I took a look at some of the other puppies listed and they had istagrams/were on the Internet as well. I contacted one of the corgi owners and let them know and they had no idea that their pups photo was being used.

I was looking for a corgi puppy so that I could bond with it early on as my intention is to personally train the dog as my service dog.

I went through many websites, talked with another breeder I thought was a scammer. However, when I spoke with Daniel and saw the Quality Pembroke Welsh Corgi Pups Home website I thought it was legitimate.

I contacted Daniel on April 15, 2020. He was very upfront about the process and that "Diana", a 10 week old female puppy, was available.

He sent me several pictures of "Diana". We talked about flying her to the nearest airport and the shipping process for the dog.

He asked me my personal information which I assumed was for the airlines when I was scheduled to pick her up so they could verify my identity. We talked about him shipping "Diana" on April 22, 2020.

I was eager to pay so that I could get my puppy and move on with my life. I asked him a couple times how I was going to pay him.

He gave me the option of something else and PayPal. Since I was familiar with PayPal, I decided that was the best route.

Daniel gave me a different email address and after PayPal payment was submitted a different name came up. This was a red flag, but I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt that he uses an alias online for his business.

After he accepted payment he stopped communicating with me. Since he has not contacted me via phone or email, I know I will never physically see the dog I paid for.

Searched on line for a corgi puppy and came across this website. Thought the price was too good to be true, but I inquired anyway. Daniel wrote back early the next morning. I questioned how they could send a puppy on a jet during the pandemic and that wasn’t addressed. I thought it odd to have grammar issues both on the website and in the emails. Also there is another website with the exact wording but a different "breeder".

I feel horrible that I even got excited about getting a dog from this website. Also, these people looked up my Facebook page and got information about me. Fortunately I looked up the person’s name and number on Google and found both listed on pet scams. Others have actually sent money and never received a puppy in return. These people need to be stopped. Below are the two emails received. I did not respond. I’m concerned about any personal information these people may try to get about me.

Thanks for your response and for your interest towards Lucas and also thanks for answering my questions. This shows and prove how serious you are. Lucas is adorable, obedient, Intelligent, active, playful very sociable and he gets along well with children, other dogs, cats, and even few chickens. I promise you that Lucas will bring a lot of joy and happiness into your home and will make a great companion. As you already know the puppies health is our main concern and we take great pride to care for them so you have to take very good care of Lucas when he will be in your home.

See below details explains how we ship

Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually I think it is harder for us than the puppy. With my many years of shipping experience, I know for a fact that all of the puppies are well taken care of. So if you stop and think about it, the Airlines are not going to mistreat the puppy for fear of lawsuit and customers dissatisfaction. I tape puppy food and feeding instructions to the top of the crate, the puppies are offered food along the ride.

The average flight is approximately 3 to 5 hours. I always ask about any delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the flights, so I know where the puppy is and I am able to give you the information as well.

The puppy will arrive the same day as it is sent usually a few hours.

I would like to know exactly when you want Lucas to be shipped over to you, because we do shipping three times a week. Monday, Wednesday and Friday so which day will work best for you?

Long story short this seller is advertising corgi puppies on his/her website and when it got time for me to make a down payment at first they asked me to go to a Walgreens and buy a $100 itunes gift card. After i asked why and suggested paypal or cashapp, i was told to use cashapp. Well both times i tried to send $100 to them cashapp canceled the transaction upon the seller accepting the payment. Cashapp says it was for my protection. The final straw was when i asked them to call me so we could talk about the dog and future payments i was told to pay before they would call me, which makes 0 sense. So when i confronted them about my suspicions through the same email they havent emailed back and havent disclaimed what i said about them being a scam artist.

Wife and I were misled about buying a corgi puppy. She discovered a website and filled out information requesting contact. She was emailed asking for additional information regarding our lifestyle and how we would care for puppy, along with sending pictures and a video of a male playing with the puppy. Total cost to buy was $700. She responded with details around our lifestyle. They responded with details on how they ship the puppies and when we would want the puppy shipped. We stated that we would not be able to pay the remaining balance until February 5th. They asked for a $300 deposit through Zelle to [email protected] under the name Zoey Crawford. The contact we had been emailing was Daniel Roberson. We submitted the deposit to place the puppy on hold on January 27. On January 31, we emailed saying we could pay the remaining $400. Daniel requested we send it to a different Zelle account ([email protected]) because the other one had reached its weekly limits and his boss said to send to the money to his brother’s account. We googled the quality corgi pups home and discovered it was a scam.

My fiance and I went on line looking to purchase a Corgi puppy for Christmas. Found Quality Pembroke Welsh Corgi Home website and filled out a contact info page. A few hours later we were sent an email from Daniel Roberson with several pictures of the puppy we liked named Benito. The email asked us to share personal information such as our martial status,occupation, if we have children, other pets and what we know about Corgis. After we answered all his questions he then asked for payment through Zelle.

After multiple emails and text, he

kept asking us to send a screenshot of the payment and insisted it be emailed to him. Which the bank does not

allow screenshots so he asked us to take a picture from another phone and email it to him. We called him several times to which he replied via text saying he was too busy to talk but he could text us. We asked him to call us. He never would call us

back, let alone answer the phone to talk to us. A voicemail is not set up for his phone. After payment was confirmed, he sent over a sales agreement and health guarantee for us to sign and return. The following day, Christmas day, he sent an email stating he set everything up through the shipping compnay " https://cargoshippinginternationale.com/ along with a tracking number: CO051861192808. We clicked on the site and entered our tracking number it confirmed the puppy was on his way. He informed us we should be getting an email from the shipping company to get the details of the shipment.

Once we found the shipping email in our “spam” folder. The email from the shipping company wanted an additional $1295 to purchase a special Weather Control Travel Crate or rent for $895 98% refundable. Soon after the email

from the shipping company, he stopped replying to our emails or text messages. The shipping website tracking portal also

went blank stating the site cannot be opened.

“Bought” a corgi puppy from this business and though it was legit.1 had a document signed and everything but once they shipped to the “cargo airline” that’s where I noticed a scam. Various fees “popped up” and no verification on if the dog even shipped. Everything was over email and seemed super shady. I post some money and hope no one else does.

According to Whois.com this company’s website was registered on 7/15/19 by WhoisGuard, Inc. out of Panama. If you are interested in purchasing a pet, please do your homework.  Find out where the breeder is located, see if you can stop by for a visit to personally pick out your new pet.  If the company is unwilling for you to stop by or the only way to contact them is either by text or email, then there is the possibility that there are no actual puppies for sale.  Also if possible check out the above website and enter in the breeders website.  It will tell you when the website was registered and by who.  For further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the Better Business Bureau.

We saw a puppy on this quality pembroke welsh corgi site, we liked the puppy and decide to contact the seller Daniel Roberson from Austin, Texas. Asked information about my self and my family. End up sending money thru zelle for 700 dollars. 550 for the puppy and 150 for shipping. He sent me a purchase agreement and he said that he will ship it by plane on july 8, 2019. Gave me details what airline and time of arrival. Before the puppy scheduled for shipment i was told that I need them to send 860 dollars to rent a special crate due to severe weather condition and this is 98 percent refundable. So I sent money thru zelle. So i thought shipment went thru and I was expecting for the puppy to arrive at 8p of July 8, 2019 thru sky cargo USA . July 08,2019 around 630pm I received another email from sky cargo that the puppy was held in Louisville. Kentucky due to no insurance upon checking the documents so they were asking for another 1170 dollars to have the puppy fly to newark airport first thing in the morning.I didnt have enough money in my account and they emailed me to send them 900 dollars and they will get some of the money from my crate rental fee.All of this fee was never disclosed before the purchase and shipment of the puppy. Today July 9,2019 around 7 this morning, I opened my email and I have another message from sky cargo that I need to pay for the cites permit which is the final stage as stated in their email, otherwise they cant release the puppy. So continued communicating to sky cargo thru email and said to them that I need to speak to someone so I could pay them thru credit card but yhey want me to send the money thru zelle again. Wasted hours emailing each other until I decided to go to newark airport to checked if really there was a puppy that arrived from kentucky which originally from Texas. I showed the boarding pass that the seller e mailed me but United airlines stated that they don’t have that kind of boarding pass and the logo was very old. So i e-mailed again the seller to ask for air bill and he sent me the tracking number from sky cargo and I told him that is not the air bill. Daniel Roberson and skycargo USA are both scammer and they conniving each other. So beware you all.

This was a very thorough and elaborate scam. We looked online for available puppy breeders and found qualitycorgipupshome.com. The website and all interactions with the “breeder” Daniel Robinson, seemed completely legitimate until it came down to forms of payment. He asked for money order, amazon gift cards or Walmart to Walmart. When we expressed concern about the security of the forms of payment he repeatedly assured us that he was honest, Christian, and bred the puppies as a family business and passion project. We paid half the cost in advance and then agreed to send the second half after the sales contract was signed and we had the flight information for the puppy. This contract was three pages long and very official looking and he also included the flight number and the (fake) cargo company he was using. After we received what we asked for we sent the rest of the money. The day of the flight we got the e-mail that the transport company had recommended delaying the flight due to weather. After calling the airline I discovered this was false, then called the shipping company which was fake. At this point I asked the “breeder” for a photo of the dog with my name written on paper next to it. This is when I lost contact with him. This man was a professional scammer who preys on our emotional attachment to animals. He was able to overcome my better instincts by constantly reassuring me, we exchanged +45 emails and multiple phone calls in a few days time. I will never again pay for an animal I have not seen in person.

This website poses as a legitimate Pembroke Welsh Corgi breeder. They spend a lot of time trying to persuade you of the puppies they have for sale. We were duped into sending our address, phone numbers, and email in order to do a transaction. I felt a little concerned when I saw their website and then when I tried to call the seller.

At that point, I decided to do a scam check on the seller and their website. We are not the only one’s being scammed. I a Navy veteran and the seller claimed their partner is active duty. I am very proud of serving my country and will cooperate in any way to bring these frauds to justice to the full effect of the law.

Prior to making this transition, we always request that all

interested person should address a few of our worries/concerns and

know what we expect of you when you become a new owner of one

or two of our puppies. First of all, we do not place our puppies in

homes where they will just be breeding and making money without

proper care and adequate medical attention.

In addition to the

importance of medical attention, we do not let our puppies go into

homes where they would live permanently outside! Furthermore, we

will not place our puppies with anyone who has any history of child

or animal abuse! We advise our potential adoptive families to take

time and educate themselves on how to properly care for their unique

new Welsh Corgi. As long as you can make us understand that you

will share the love in your homes with the pup, we will consider placing

our puppy in your home regardless of your location. Attached to this

email are some pictures of Lexie and Jewel. Hope you love the pics.

We are located here in California so we will have to ship

your puppy, we consider shipping as an option and we make the

shipping arrangements. This is because most often we find suitable

homes for our puppies but they might not be located within a driving

distance. I can guess what question you have in mind right now, Flying

a Puppy! Is it safe? This question is often asked. We certainly wouldn’t

consider it if it wasn’t. I personally asked this question to the shipping

company on my first attempt to ship a puppy some couple of years

back, and this was their answer to me "When we book a flight for a

puppy, it is only on safe and approved Airlines that have pet-safe

programs that Follows USDA guidelines" The puppy will have the

same air as the pilot flying the plane & someone will be there to cater

for him on board and off the plane until delivery is completed. When

we go to book a flight for our pets, we always call ahead and find the

most direct flight available (much as if you were looking for a flight for

yourself). Our puppies have always arrived safe and sound in their

new homes, They even went further to say that "it is better and more

comfortable to fly a puppy on a 2-5 hours flight than drive with that

puppy for 6 hours or more". And that I believe so much because I

know they are professionals and will deliver the puppy safely.

Basically shipping a puppy within the USA and Canada

requires the following for a pet-safe program:

– Certified Health and immunization certificates: $40

– Transfer of ownership certificate: $17

– Rabies Vaccination & Certificate: $30

– Veterinary passport: $50

– Shipping fee: $245

The adoption fee for 1 puppy is $518. THE TOTAL FEE TO HAVE ONE

PUPPY DELIVERED TO YOU IS $900 USD. If you are interested to adopt

two puppies, you will have to pay only $1500.00 USD.

The shipping process normally takes between 6-18 hours to complete.

We are not full time breeders. We breed for the sake of experience,

My partner is in the military and i work for the civil service so breeding

and selling puppies is not some kind of business for us as we do not

look to make profits yet. We only charge a fee which is usually smaller

than what regular breeders charge for this breed, our fee is just enough

to cover feeding and medication and other expenses on each puppy

until date. Get back to me as soon as you can so that I can advice you

on the next step.

Finally, please specify the names of the puppy/puppies

you have finally decided to adopt.
