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 !

Payed 500 for puppy. 100 for flight through spirit airlines. Website was all spot on. Didn't have a gut feeling until I was asked to rent a crate for 1200 and flight was leaving at 2p.m. from California to Michigan through spirit airlines. There using sprite airlines in there emails saying there is a problem with the flight asking u to provide a proper crate. I contacted ebay because they asked for ebay cards totaling 600 they found cards and account and are charging them and prosicuting them. I have sent them picks of the cards and I have website and emails pictures and the paper from sprit airlines.I will be contacting them on this matter along with my own through FBI.

Mar 12, 2019
Monetary Loss: $0
Karl has ads on eclassifieds4u. Says he has British shorthair kittens for sale(650cdn including delivery). He says courier will contact me in morning. Note he tells me that he is in Regina SK but, has a Phoenix AZ phone number. Courier calls with a Orlando Florida number saying he is in Regina. When I question this, I am told it is their toll free number. So I ask him if he is in Regina, what is he address. Tells me it will be in the email that was sent(never received email). The courier was called Citizenshippers4All. I was then told that this courier did not work out and he was going to use uship. I contacted them and explained the situation regarding someone named karl is going contact them to ship a kitten. They sent me an email saying that this was a scam. I do have the whole text conversation and the email from the uship company but it is too big to include. Is there another way to get them to you?
