I was scammed by TeaCupYorkie home

  • Monetary Loss: $1425
I wanted to buy a yorkie puppy and I got an email response right away and a text messages about the puppy. He told me that he had a coupon for travel ticket of $250 so I will only had to pay $500 for the puppy. I could pay via Money Gram and sent the receipt number via text so that he was sure I paid it. so the next day he was going to do the preparation to buy the ticket and send the puppy and I will have it in the evening. SO he send me a picture of a ticket that I could not see to well and then the company that was shipping the dog was sending me the info as to when I will receive my puppy at my home. I said I was going to pick him up at the Oakland airport and he said no they are delivering to your house. The company transporting the puppy send me an email with the time of departure and arrival. But then he text me, there was a hold at the airport bc I the puppy need a special crate and vaccines for $850 otherwise not puppy on the flight, so I sent the money gram. Okay so now everything fine. and the fight company was going to refund me the $850 once I get the puppy deliver to my home. Then he text me again an hour before the puppy was to leave the second stop, in Texas that the pet police hold my dog because I need a permit to transport an animal from different states and for the permits it was 3 different kinds A was a permit for 2 yrs $4500.00, B was for 1 yr $2500.0 and C was for 6 months $1300.00 and he texted me saying that if i did not have the permit and email or fax it to them I was going to have the puppy in quarantine in the next hour and 45 minutes and I was going to be deemed neglectful to the puppy and that the Texas pet police was going to fine me $9000 to $12000 and the puppy will be left there bc he transfer the ownership from him to me so could not do anything. so I had to pay I told him that it was sounding like a scam, and i did not pay the $1300 for the cheapest permit and he kept texting as to what's up? was going on? he even call me and told me that police was going to deemed me animal abuse and be charged for it and that he try to tell me but later he did not want any responsibility for it since he told me. The nerve he had to even say that. I lost $$ that I was saving for that purpose to purchase a puppy and my daughter even help me with the money and I still don't have puppy. I was so upset!!!!!

I have been scammed by Alva Kendall

  • Monetary Loss: $600
I went to purchase 2 puppies from a supposed person named Alva Kendall. We made arrangements through email saying she would send the pups once she received payment. She asked for payments through eBay gift cards. We did that once she asked. She kept asking for updates and we have them to her. All this happened yesterday. Then today she asked for another $200 for “flight insurance” for the pups. We confirmed the payments. And then we she said she received she just went MIA. Haven’t heard from her and the money on the cards have already withdrawn. I need my money back and she needs to pay for the scan she’s making in people.
