Got online looking to buy a french bulldog when I seen the ad from Greenland french bulldog pups home" I picked out a dog named Ben & Molly, thru email i talked to a guy that's was pose to be from Greenland french bulldog pups home. I wired funds to Suntrust Bank. Then they asked for 2600.00 for the life insurance for flight & i would get the money back after the pups arrival. This was never disclosed when I asked what my total out of pocket cost was for the 2 dogs. I requested my money back. I'm still waiting

I purchased a dog online and he was suppose to be shipped but it's been one expense after another another. The dog was originally $550.00 .then supposedly when he was taken to the delivery service it became one expense after another .yesterday I was told he would be here this morning and everything was fine.I get an email telling me there was an accident and he's ok but the vet won't let him ship for 3 weeks.ive asked for the location and # of where he is and No response .They get smart with me .The breeder won't answer now.What was funny also was that I had to pay in Amazon gift cards and send then the pictures for payment.

  • Monetary Loss: $1700.00
I was sent sn email message by Lawrence Lefen about yorkies that i am looking to purchase. He showed me pictures and i believed him. He told me to pay him $500 in Amazon Cards abd then told me he is sending the puppy via deluvery straight to my house. Then while it is supposed to arrive i recieve these email messages asking fir $700.00 for pet insurance to be sent to Derick Anthony Pierce via Moneygram. Then the next email said the border patrol has my dog and they need licensing fees for 530.00 again to Derick Anthony Pierce saying after this the dog will be at my doorstep in one hour forty five minutes. But five hrs went by and no dog and no message from them other than the last step email asking for $1250 for some other stuff they need. That is when we knew we have been scammed.
