Pet Adoption Scam
| Purchase of a puppyWe decide to purchase a French bulldog puppy. They asked for $789.00 for the puppy and flight charge. Seller asked me to wire the money by western union. The seller never in no time mentioned that we had to purchase an insurance for puppy to travel. Then the company Noble Pet Carriers contact me that they need me to pay $1340. Only wire by western union. No credit cards. Supposedly, when the puppy gets delivered I would get back $1200 refund in cash. I notified seller and told him that I don\'t have that much cash. He asked what to do. I kindly asked him if he can refund my wired money. He said he would $500 the next day. I would have to wait 14 days for the flight company to reimburse the $289. Well the next day seller tells me the story that his wife wife was in a devasting accident and she is in a coma. He never return my messages. At this point I\'m not sure what to do. I guess my best step is to file a police report? Not sure. |
