Replied to an add on craigs list for two free huskies that need adopted the scammer said they relocated to Baltimore Maryland and that they could set up a pet transportation fee that I'd have to pay the photos they sent me of the pups didn't match up so I became suspicious I did a Google search and phone tracker to find out this wasn't their first scam others had been scammed by the same email address and listed name. Which I had to sign up for on some tracking website called speko and will result in me cancelling my credit card.

Tried smelly puppies

I replied to 3 Craigs List ads for puppies. They were for Pugs, Great Dane, and Siberian Huskies. Each of these individuals refused to have the puppies picked up, but wanted money sent via money gram and then they would have the puppies delivered via corrier service or some airline. They ask that you send your email, name, and address so they can have the puppies transferred to your name. One even went as far as to hack into my Craigslist account and post an ad.
