Always on the other side of the country

Wife was looking for Sphynx cats and came across a seller. Sellers post stated they were in Georgia but when I made contact they asked where I was and then stated they are "presently in California." I downloaded a texting app to change my phone number and made contact again. Received the exact same message asking where I was so I said California and then they replied they are "presently in Florida." They asked for an email to send pictures/payment information and the name in the email was Juan but through a text I was instructed to send money to Raymond Propps in Los Angeles. The fact they were asking $500 for one cat or $$900 for their litter of two when everyone else is asking $1500+ for one was my first red flag.

These are our Teacup Yorkie puppies and thank you for contacting us in regard to our Yorkie puppies we have available for adoption. There is a male (Diego) and female(Bella) available. The puppies are 11 weeks old now and all their vaccinations are accurate and have all papers. My husband and I have decided to give out these puppies because we just move to a non pet apartment house and there is no way we can keep them again. we are given the puppies with no adoption fee and I will appreciate if you can answer the following questions so we have an idea if the puppies will be going to a great home.

(1) will you take the male (Diego) or female (Bella)? THEIR VIDEOS ARE ATTACHED.
(2) have you own a pet before?
(3) where are you located?
(4) do you have a vet doctor?
(5) give me a brief description of your environment.
(6) what is your phone number.?

The reason for these question is because we want the best home for any of the puppy or both of the puppies and we will be very happy to give you any of the puppy or both if you can provide me suitable answers for my questions. Thank you and I will be waiting to read back from you.

I checked out their site and found a beautiful little puppy. They had name as Lori. The price was $499 (they were haveping a 70% Sale). I filled out the application, they came back and said I was approved. The email they sent was pretty long but the main thing that got me was they wanted to be paid $499 total UP FRONT thru Zelle or Wastern Union. I would have to send them a copy of the transaction and then they would send me the airline details of the puppy.

Was asking a deposit for a Cavalier king Charles Spaniel. was selling for a very low price. Found the picture he posted on another website for much more
He stole the picture. He was trying to get me to send $300.00 PayPal
I went back and could not find the e-mail address. I believe he knew I was on to him.
