Total money lost $1,250
Type of a scam Online Purchase
I was purchasing a puppy from this website and wanted me to pay for it by buying amazon gift cards with cash so the money would get to him quickly, so I did.
Next I received an email stating that the puppy would arrive the next day at 11:30 am via air cargo & home delivery service. The puppy never showed so I emailed this guy and wanted to know the flight number and what airline. I did not get any response until about 2:30 saying there was a little problem. The problem was that the puppy had to have life insurance in order to get him into the state. He requested 900.00 for this life insurance. He kept messaging me saying I need to do this right away or I could be held liable for abandonment and animal cruelty. I told him I couldn’t do 900.00 so he says if I can do 600 he would put in 300. I love my pets dearly so I paid the 600. I received an email saying the insurance has been paid and will receive the puppy the following morning at 9:00 am. Well there was NO puppy and received no further emails.
I lost 650.00 for the puppy purchase and 600.00 for life insurance.
