Type of a scam Online Purchase

I had been researching how to purchase Welsh Corgie puppies. I found this website that had a very reasonable price. He wanted a payment of $550.00 to be paid via Cash App. I was only able to supply him $300.00 over Cash App so he asked me to electronically send him a Wal-Mart gift card for the remaining $250.00. He said he buys his supplies from Wal-Mart. Once I sent him the money he said he would arrange transportation through a puppy transport company. He said there might be a small charge for pet insurance but the transport people would let me know. I then received an e-mail from Rocket Pet Delivery. They said that the Federal Government required that animals shipped across state line to have insurance. The insurance cost was $880.00 dollars. All but $20.00 would be re-funded when the puppy arrived safely. The wanted payment to be cash upon delivery or a bank wire transfer. I was starting to get suspicious but that instruction range a loud alarm bell. I didn’t think any legitimate transport service would ask for payment in that manner. I started to research the company and it came up in a list of known puppy scam websites. I am out $550.00.
