Total money lost $1,900
Type of a scam Online Purchase
Found the websites and found a puppy we wanted. Filled out an application and was notified that $1900.00 was needed to be sent to [email protected] by Zelle. He stated that probably only $500.00 was allowed to be transferred and that I would need to go to the bank and the rest to be deposited into an account provided from my same bank.
Yesterday. I went to Wells Fargo and sent a photo of the deposited funds to them.
Was then texted that the funds were received and that he would work on the shipping of the puppy and get back to me.
In their website, they promised to deliver in 48 hours.
When I did not hear from them this morning, I emailed and texted them to inquire when the puppy was going to be shipped. Was texted that he will work on it today or tomorrow and will get back to me.
I attempted to contact the seller by phone, multiple times, and no answer.
I had a funny felling that this may be a scam and looked into reviews of the business and read that other people have been scammed also.
