I have been scammed by Sedrik Williams & Jaylen Jones
Feb 21, 2019
Monetary Loss: $1623.50
Bought a boxer puppy which was listed for sale on line listed by F Babies price listed $600.00 stated to be at half price with free shipping ,the catch the only way we could pay was by Western Union , upon arrival of money Mr. Sedrik Williams (seller) messaged said dog was at shippers ready to be shipped and they would contact me. The shippers claimed to be Safe Way shippers (which does exist) first contact was by phone by Mr. Jaylen Williams , Mr Williams said I had to send $990.00 to him (again by Western Union) for care insureance and crate rental . Went back to Western Union sent him $990.00 . Upon him receiving the $990 he messaged wanting $899.00 more for travel insuresance which he said was required . Finally I'm catching on this is a scam ! Now after several calls and messages even the seller messaged saying he would pay 300.00 if I would pay the rest . If I didn't mention they said all be be refunded to me upon the arrival of the pet . So I start checking ( too late ) to find out Safe Way shipping does not ship pets next found both web sites listed in scam reports . The reason I put both of these together as you can see they were working together . Question is there any way I can recover my money we are retired that was all the money we had to pay our monthly bills ? I KNOW I AM STUPID !
I thought I bought a dog from Susan Garcia on face book web site.
She wanted me to send money thru pay pal. When I did she disputed it. So the money was not available to me. She told me to get a prepaid Amazon gift card which I did and she cashed them in right away. Of course no puppy.

Jan 20, 2019
Monetary Loss: $300.00
They is a sight on google called maine coon kittens selling cats. I sent them three hurdred dollars. They said that it would cover all of if. Then they called back a day later from a different said I needed go pay 1200 more for a crate for it yo fly. Even though he already had a creat. Said if I didn't pay it they wouldn't ship him so I never got the cat. And they never took it off there sight after I played for it. The cats Mame is Perry and still on the sight for sale.
Initially paid 550€ for a English Bulldog. Upon the bulldog going to the airport I was notified the wrong crate was used and an air conditioned crate was needed and the puppies were being held by customs. It would cost another 1000€. I did not pay that i know air conditioned kennels dont exist,I just wish I would have seen it sooner before I sent 550€. Maybe I can help someone else
