Pet Adoption Scam
|+4 teacup pomeranian puppies for sale |
On the website it states: They said they are not profitting and out there to make money,
They own a motel business where they raise the puppies on 98 acres ...a beautiful farm.
They are selling the pups so that everyone will be able to enjoy this type of dog.
They were going to ship the puppy by airline.
They stated they do this all the time.
They said the puppies stay with the flight attendant through out the flight!
When I emailed they provided the cell number of (314) 252-8673 . This is when I decided to investigate. Luckily a previous person had written up on this scam. The website, pseudo-names like Carolyn or Jesse Russell are different, but the storyline is the same. Google the address 351 Deal Street, Hinesville, GA 31313. It is a small strip building with a restaurant. No motel. No farm. I hope this helps others.

We bought a teacup pomeranian over the Internet for 300, and 150 for shipping, then she needed a special crate for 350 but then it was a better crate and it was 580 , and then insurance for the puppy that was 750 but that was not enough. They want me to pay another 850 for insurance, if I do not do that on Monday they will action her off,and charge me all fees, they also said they would tell everyone I was a puppy abuser, which I have been a pom breeder years ago, and never had any problems then. Thank you Nancy Larson

This is a scam. They reply to emails very quickly and ask lots & lots of questions about me. However, they will not answer any of my questions. A legitimate breeder would have not problem sending you a photo of the parents of the puppy, and letting you come & pick up the puppy. The real giveaway was when they said that "an air hostess will fly with the puppy all the way". BS - I worked for an airline, the puppies go in the cargo hold unless an individual flying with the puppy pays the fee & flies with them in the cabin. No airline personnel would ever be responsible for attending a puppy in flight. That would violate FAA regulations, as flight attendants are there for the safety of the human passengers only. AVOID THESE PEOPLE!
