Oh how I hate them. So far selling pups had 2 first I looked up addy and telephone number scam,wanted to send extra money and me pay their shipper not me ship.Red flags there.
Today UPS dropped a legal envelope and had cashiers check of $3850.00 in it,
but no letter nothing.Red flag. Had different name on check,than on envelope and took to bank as a Wisconsin bank on check.Tracked down bank told routing number no such one issued.
Took to Police station did reverse lookup and was shipped out of California,but had a Washington DC addy.

So watch out anyone selling a animal over the net and really watch anything get as deposit and such.I know I tell them have to clear before puppy exchanges hands.Just do not want to have anyone ripped off out there or a pet getting shipped off to some lab somewhere to be abused.

I seriously doubt a lab would pay $3850 for a single animal to run harmful tests on. I could be wrong, but I just don't think so.

They send money to you request send some back as changed mind having someone come to pick up dog so send money back and they pick up dog if gets that far before realize what happened if they get dog take off sell to lab for a few bucks just to earn more after ripped you off by sending money back.

The money order/check was the scam.....in a while they will contact you saying that they accidently over paid you and could you please send them the balance back!! Has nothing to do with the pups....had this happen with furniture. FBI has a web site about these scams! A friend of mine actually fell for it she sent the difference then her account started bouncing checks that she had to cover....she never heard form the people again....they never picked up the car they were buying either.

Cops said when get email they want it all headers email.Not like be able to catch em,but 2nd scammer tried to me first asked if send and pay their shipper told em pay my price pay own shipper.They not like that and no more emails. Bank said when they email say what cashiers check never recieved anything and did not sign for package, maybe get them waste more send me a few more.If thes people actually put their minds to good use instead of trying to scam people they could be well off with minds they have.
