Type of a scam Online Purchase
I was looking for a puppy to adopt and found miniature poodles for what seemed like a good deal 700 dollars with papers and many other pros. I immediately messaged the seller and was about to put in a payment. But realized the following things.
-In his story (the about section) he refers to himself as Paul. But in his email his contact name changed to Kingsley Romanus.
-He wanted to have the money wired to him.
-In his emails many things would be spelt wrong and random numbers or letters would be placed (not business like)
-He said that the puppy was available even with a low price but when he said he would put it on hold the website said it was still available.
-I went on a scam website finder and it turns out the website was created by a Aladji Baba
-He said he did not want to be contacted via phone.
-When I searched a paragraph into Google another website popped up that he seemed to steal the information from the website is http://www.pup4u.com.
I guess there are more but it’s hard to list them all. So basically they used information off of other breeder websites and pulled it off as their own.
