Buyer Dealing with Scammer

"Got scammed but did not send money. I answered and ad for free pugs. I am looking to adopt an older dog but i was willing to considere a younger one from a family who could not take care of it anymore. First email was somewhat norma. Lots of questions (legit dog shelters do that do...) The only thing that bothered me was that the ad said "Montreal" 9I live 50km away from Montreal) and in the email she was saying that she was in Thunder bay. the whole shipping of the dog was also suspicious. I asked a couple of questions regarding transport but she did not answer. Then i googled her name and email address "Angella Muerey" and found this page. That was it. i knew. I sent an email saying i was not going to fall for this and she REPLIED "Why do you say that to me i am real!" They're hungry......So i sent a last email saying: ok if you are real, send me the dog and i will pay upon delivery. That was it. No more answers after that. I reported the scam to my government's anti-fraud center. be careful folks..."
