I found a craigslist ad for a shih tzu puppy, listed in Ft. Lauderdale. Upon emailing the poster, he revealed the puppy was in Portland, Oregon. He then proceeds to arrange the shipment of the puppy via currier service, named Uship. I then got emails and phone calls from the supposed business, Uship. They were telling me to purchase an amazon gift card for $150 and send them the code for the currier service to transport the puppy. I then blocked all email addresses and phone numbers.

I saw on a local Facebook classifieds a girl as Samantha A Blake had a husky puppy up for adoption and when I messaged her to ask about the puppy she began telling me that she was unfortunately no longer in my area and that she was still trying to adopt out the puppy because the puppy was a reminder of her son who had passed in the latest weeks. she then began to ask me if I was still interested and if so that I could have the puppy delivered via Courier Service uShip and that it would cost only $180. I have given her my email so that she can set it up shortly after I received an email from the email address I gave above. I had an idea that it was a scam from the very first message she sent to me and the more I spoke with her the more I was convinced and I researched having a pet shipped through a Courier service and realized it was definitely a scam. I have not spoken with her after this or responded to the email supposedly from uShip.
