Total money lost $350
Type of a scam Online Purchase
I was searching for a maltese puppy and saw the website above. Made contact with Lucy on text, and started to get info on purchasing a maltese puppy.
She stated that a deposit of $350.00 to be paid by Zelle, the puppy would be delivered to the airport and we would have to pick up from there. After the transaction was complete on Zelle (info name:Simon [email protected]) we would be receiving a call from the freight company. We received a call rom Carlos from Pacific Freight informing us that we would have to purchase an air-conditioned crate for the puppy due to the virus. This sounded very shady, so we researched the company and found it to be part of a scam. We tried to call Lucy back, but have not heard any communications.
