I purchased a puppy for $400.00 next day first they ask for 2500. More for shipping. Then $100.00 then $250.00. Now no one will respond. They got me. I feel for it but maybe you can stop this from happening to anyone else.

Heather came over to my home, told me her military husband had died. She wrote a check, then put a stop pay on the check. She said she had obtained to other puppies this way. Also, drove up in a brand new BMW SUV. She currently has my standard poodle who is not vaccinated completely.

Scam - Maltipoo

  • by: maltipoo

  • Sep 11, 2019
  • Monetary Loss: $0
I received notification from Rescue Me website that there was a dog matching my criteria. I sent an email to inquire. I then received a text message stating she was the owner. I grew suspicious when I was told the puppies were all female which was different than the website. They sent me a video of the dog and offered to drive to deliver but then said their car was broken down within minutes. I was able to contact the Rescue Me website and found that it was a scam before I made the deposit. They were pushing me to give them my information to get the delivery process started. BE CAREFUL! After researching this phone number comes up alot - different names and emails.
