I wasn't taken in this scam. But they are very persistent. They even tried contacting me by sending text messages. I told them to call me. They would respond back that they were hearing impaired and could only respond via text. Sometimes they used the same name. Sometimes they used different numbers with the same name. I thought if I told them they had to sign a contract they would leave us alone. But they continue to send us things but ignored the contract and ignored our puppy questionnaire. I even told them we would not sell them a dog. They would wait a while and contact us again. They always offered us more money to hold a dog for them.

Below is just one of the examples. I have deleted the others adn I deleted the text msg. I kept them for a while, but decided to get rid of them.

From Buyer

There is a person claiming to have free puppies. This person is very convincing. They tell you that they are giving the puppies away and all you only have to pay is $100.00 for the ownership documents to be signed over. They will ask you to send the money western union. They also tell you they will send you the puppies through you local airport. They come across honest and trustworthy. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS.This person may be in other places so PLEASE BEWARE. They are also on many puppy websites. BE CAREFUL!!

Story told by Breeder about Scammer

Yet another scammer, after telling this idiot to get lost, not so nicely, he has the guts to send us a counterfeit check for $3200 for a $1000 dog, and DEMANDS we Western Union the rest to his shipper in ENGLAND!!! Some advice for everyone filling out the FBI IC3 complaints: don't waste your time. I called our local FBI and she told me that all those emails go to a CLEARING HOUSE??? and nothing ever really gets done about it. Her advice, if you get a check, take it to the bank its drawn on and let them handle it. Be sure to keep the envelope it arrived in for all the different names that appear on it, I will list the names in case anyone else has been contacted by them: emailer Duff Williams wills.wills16@yahoo.com, check purchased by Mike Coleman, sent from Mark Balser BIGGE COMPANY FROM VANCOVER WA? Where does this end!! SO FRUSTRATING. So basically folks, your own your own, trust is a thing of the past. We have been fortunate in all our years of sell
ing dogs and horses, to have this one incident, but these people are relentless. So be VERY WARY. PayPal payment is what we have been using now since 2004, but none the less, keep your guard up.

We do not ship out of country. Where would the puppy be going to you or your son. We would have to find out where to ship to and you would have to pay for the shipping.

I would need to know which puppy that you want we have 6 males and 1 female left.

I've attached a few pictures.
The first one has all the puppies in it.
The second has all the blue males, but the 1st and 3rd in that picture are sold.
The third has three white males, and all of them are available.
The last has two females, but the solid blue one is sold.

The bottom price we would take on the puppies is $600 for the ones that have more blue and $500 for the ones that are more white.

We have a paypal account set up have you used that before?
If you have more questions please let me know.

Thank you
Manda

House For Rent

I have already had one experience with a rental house I had posted in online classifieds, where the person took my email address and the info I gave him on the house and started listing it himself, available for rent, just mail him the deposit and the fed ex guy would bring him the keys AND show him where the house was. (right? OMG!)

Dear Tammy,
There are several puppies still available. What I need from you in order to send you pictures is an idea of what you are looking for. These babies are $700, come with current shots, multiple worming's and a one year health guarantee. There are several litters coming up, the first two will be available the weekend of August 22 and the last one is available Labor Day weekend. They all will range in size from 15-17 pounds and most are black and white though there are a few that may be black brindle as they mature. If you will give me an idea of the gender you want I will start to sending you pictures. I send an e-mail for each puppy so that you can see the pup from all angles. I do require a $200 deposit to hold a puppy and that can be made either through the on line service of Paypal or by mailing me a check. I do also want the balance paid upon pick up and that must be made either in cash or money order as I will not accept out of state checks for final payment. Also I would like to know where you are located because if you are too far away I may not be able to assist you in locating a puppy at all. I am in southeastern Pa. and I do make deliveries on the east coast as long as you are not too far from here. If I can help you or answer any other questions you might have please feel free to contact me again.
Sincerely,
Jane

Hi Garcia,

I have 3 sable males, 1 sable female & 1 bi Color male left. All the pups are going to be long coats. The bloodlines are import - German/Holland . Pups are just now 6 weeks old.
Could you tell me a little about you and your family. I only breed a couple of litters a year. My pups are raised with our family. I do have a contract that states that if you can't keep the pup you will contact me and I will find the pup a home, in addition to if the pup has any genetic problems I will replace the pup with a comparable pup.
Below are some pictures of the parents and the pups let me know what you are interested in and I will send you more pictures.

Thanks

Aaron,
Just so you know Adolph weighs close to 100 lbs, the Mom Bailey weighs about 65-70 lbs. Below is a picture of the female pup taken 1 week ago. Also I have included pictures of one of the pups from our last litter taken when she was about 8 months old. My pups are $1000.00 and that does include the right to breed if you chose not to have breeding rights the price is $800.00. The picture below titled Rosedau is the pup from our last litter, there should be several pics attached of her at different ages. The pups have had their first round of puppy shots. Is the Vet you know from locally in Portland?

Aaron, I sent you this e mail yesterday. I will not under any circumstances be remitting payment for anything to your vet. I have my own vet and if you want your vet to examine the pup and pick the pup up that is something you would need to pay for.

I have shipped dogs before, so unless you want to have a vet you know involved that is your decision. My vet will provide the health certificate which is what the airline needs, I will buy the crate and there should not be any other medical expenses other than the charges from my vet for the certificate. So unless you have a vet that would like to look at the pup and examine her you can provide payment to that vet. The additional cost to you beyond the cost of the pup will be the crate, health certificate for the airlines and whatever airfare is going for at that time. If you are interested in a pup I will call the airlines here and get a rate, let me know if you want the pup flown to Duluth or St Paul. I also only accept cashiers checks in payment for my pups and will not ship the pup until the check clears.

 

 

There has been an ongoing scam circulating the internet for years which targets many sellers, and the dog world is by far no exception. Breeders have been again bombarded with offers to "buy the product". The "purchasers" claim they have large amounts of money from an inheritance in cashiers checks or Money Orders that they say their shipper will send to you and then you are to refund any overpayment to them from your personal account.  Your check or money order is good but theirs is not. Therefore after a period of time your money is gone and the bank is also returning the counterfeit MO or Cashiers Check to you to be repaid to the bank.  Most of these scammers are from Nigeria, Africa, some foreign country and their "helpers" are supposedly going to pick up the product (in our case a dog).  Nobody in their right mind will send you a huge amount of money and trust you to send back what you don't need to keep.

Many of these scammers pose as deaf, hard of hearing, or speech disabled and take people for large amounts of money.

A couple "purchasers" even used  relay phone calls. The operators were unaware of what they were asking until it was explained to them and by law, even if they did know they are not allowed to tell you. These scammers will usually have many spelling and grammar errors in their emails.

Within the USA - If you have been a victim to a similar scam contact your local Secret Service Agent. It is very important to save the documents with full headers. They are useless with out the ISP header.

If you have been scammed be sure to find a site on the net that will let you report it. There are many out there and you can find them by doing a Google search.
