A man going by the name Robert Churchill posted an ad on Craigslist about the adoption of husky puppies. This was an obvious pet scam but I fell for it. He managed to get $250 from me until I caught him with the fake website and shipping information. There was no puppies involved and I want this to be brought to the attention of anyone out there who is seeking a pet. He asked for money through money gram which is non refundable and he gave me a fake shipping agency. He claimed to have a family and claimed to be a pet lover. The man is a grade A con artist. He lives in Ashland, Virginia. Please make this known and watch out for scams on Craigslist.
