Lost 900 to this scam I just got out of the army to be with my husband and all I wanted was a puppy. We found a perfect puppy named Kaya on Jakes basset hound. He gave us the same story about his daughter in the hospital. Makes me so sad people will go to these lengths and mess with people emotions and their family .

Attempted to purchase a Basset puppy named Bella. Told “Jake” I was concerned about shipping the puppy but he assured me everything would be fine. Asked him if he took Paypal for payment and he said no. Asked him to send me recent puppy photos so I could make sure about how legitimate the puppy picture was. Jake said he was at the hospital with his daughter (sound familiar! same story as in comment above) but would send me photos when he got home.
As soon as we got off the phone he texted me info about paying for the puppy and said he would like to ship the puppy that evening (another warning sign).
I told “Jake” I would not proceed until I got the recent puppy photos.
I texted him for the next three days and never got a response. I called the police department in Mokena, IL to report this scam and they told me they do not allow breeders in the community.
The cell phone number for Jake is 708-390-8094

Our family was so looking forward to “Winston” the basset hound promised to us by www.jakebassethounds.com only to be so very disappointed after $500 spent and the tears of my children come to find out that it was all a scam with no way to get our money back. His phone # was disconnected. He even played on our religion and emotions to earn our trust. I urge you not to contact this website. We have learned our lesson the hard way.
