Type of a scam Online Purchase
I was scammed & utterly broken about it. The email below is what alerted me that I was scammed. Here is every ounce of information I have on the scammers. I lost $360 to these supposed "breeders".
Link where I found them:
The website I was given to show me an updated list of available puppies (which has already been taken down):
I texted back and forth between the breeder at (240) 270-1721. Attached is a copy of them text exchanged between the two of us. I sent the $360 over the Cash app. The original payment did not go through on $ryandaniels77 for Ryan Daniel Richard. That payment was returned (yes, confirmed returned in my account), so the updated payment of $360 was sent for Mary Stout at $marystout25. These payments occurred on Thursday, May 7th, 2020.
The email that I also used in conversing with the breeder was [email protected] I have also attached a picture of the email exchanged between the "breeder".
Lastly, below is a copy of the email I received requesting more, but from a "pet transportation service" for $300 for a "life insurance policy" and $450 for a "AC Temperature Regulatory Crate", so I can receive my teacup pug. This email was what finally woke me up.
Hindsight and all that, I see how naively trusting I was in the multiple colossally stupid mistakes I made. My only consolation is my vow to see people like this found & convicted, so they can’t do this to others.
