Total money lost $600
Type of a scam Online Purchase
Hello, I thought I was purchasing a Shih Tzu puppy from a breeder known as Loyal Shih Tzu 4 home.
Their website is loyalshihtzu4home.com. I have come to a conclusion that this is a scam. I paid $600 with my debit card through Square Inc. for the dog and it was supposed to be free to ship it to me, but they sent a fake tracking number and further said that I would have to pay an extra $900 to get the dog shipped to me. That makes no sense and so I believe this is a scam.
They also lied about being registered with the ScamPulse.com (Better Business Bureau) and AKC (American Kennel Club). I have emails and phone numbers of this scammer if needed and transactional proof that the person that called me is a man with an Indian accent. I was contacted by a number from the middle east so I don’t think this person is from or in the United States.
