Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $200
We were looking at buying a Corgi puppy and this lady had emailed me on Kijiji saying she had a puppy and sent pictures. We proceeded to correspond with her for a couple hours she then asked for four Amazon cards $100 each and to send 2 of the cards to begin and 2 once we received the puppy. When we got the confirmation of the puppy to be flown out by the company ACM worldwide delivery which also asked for $790 refundable insurance we realized that this was a scam company and we are now out $200 and still have no puppy.

  • Monetary Loss: $365.00
She posted on facebook that she had yorkie puppies to rehome. My only contact was through messenger. I sent $365.00 through paypal as directed to William Ochieng, this was sent as friends and family. I was later contacted by the shipping company that I needed to pay $720 for insurance for the puppy. I did not pay because they wanted it to be sent Western Union to 'Colombia'. I have on my phone all the messages and picture of person and a picture of DL from Colorado.
