Type of a scam Online Purchase
I have been looking online to purchase an American Bully through a reputable breeder. I came across a website called besteverbullies who had puppies for sale for $700. The website had no contact information or location, just a link to message through the website. I sent the message and was emailed by a male named "Eric". He also sent me a text message and called me on the phone. He said all puppies were available and can provide pictures of the puppies and a video. Via email and text he sent me the pictures and video which contained a small child. Very believable I assumed and continued the conversation. What raised a red flag was I could not come in person to see the puppies and he wanted me to Western Union $750 and tell the person wiring the money it was for "house bills". That statement raised a red flag, and also transferring puppy information to my name which was completely unheard of. I decided to google the information and confirmed my suspicions of a scam and fraud. Please see attached pictures and beware.
