Type of a scam Online Purchase

I was looking for a mini Schnauzer to buy for a Christmas gift and found this website through a search engine. Everything seemed fine at first but I am thankful for a 6th sense and started checking things out more closely when the only form of payment accepted was Money Gram.

1. My initial contact with his website showed 3 available puppies who were potty trained at 10 weeks. When I looked today he has 6 puppies available that are all 10 weeks & potty trained. By now they would be older than 10 weeks since I looked into buying one.

2. I looked closer at the photos and the person holding the puppies has on different shirts & different backgrounds. Who changes shirts taking photos of puppies for sale & photographs all over the house?

3. I asked if the puppy I wanted (Latifa) was playful. He had been responding to me with incorrect grammatical errors and now he was using big words for him like tenatious? I copied part of his reply including that word and put it in a search engine and it pulled up a puppy scam warning and it was word for word what he sent me!

4. I asked for his vets phone number to ask the vet questions. His reply was that the vet was out of town. I messaged back that I could talk to anyone working in the vets office and have not heard a word from this scammer since then!

5. I asked what pet service name was that would be flying with my puppy and he replied that he wouldn’t know until I paid in full! Wouldn’t you use the same company for this as you are a breeder and put trust in certain companies who take care of the puppies?

You are suppose to send payment via Money Gram wire transfer using the information’s below

First name:THOMAS

Last name:CLEVERLY

Address:1921 Plymouth St NW


State:District of Columbia


Check out any Money Gram store near you and head there to get the payment done (TELL THE CASHIER YOU WANT TO DO A MONEY GRAM TRANSFER WITH THE 8 DIGIT REFERENCE NUMBER)

After the payment is done you are suppose to get back to me with a copy of the payment receipt,senders names, reference number and amount sent .

Make sure you go through the payment receipt while you are in the store ,to avoid any mistake .The city should be Washington and the state should be District of Columbia .

I understand, that’s fine.

But note that a cashier’s check is like a money order from my bank; it’s like cash, there’s no bouncing with those; That’s how mortgage down payments are done.

I’ll go to Walmart to send you the money as soon as possible.

Ok note that paypal payments take about 5 days to be clear before we can proceed with delivery .

So you are suppose to send payment to the following paypal email :[email protected]

and note that the payment option you are suppose to choose is "send money to friend and family"

Yes, no problem, PayPal I have, but

I do not know how to send payment to you directly. Do you have a seller’s link or something like that?

On "CHECKOUT" it replied with "System Error."

Could you verify if you received the Visa info?

Hi again,

Thanks for your prompt response.

We had a rescued Labrador "Violet" for 13 years; she died 3 years ago. My daughters have been insisting on another puppy all this time, but I needed to grief and let go of Violet.

Now, I feel is the right time for my girls to learn, as I did, the responsibility and commitment needed for properly caring for a dog. I promise I will keep on sending pictures back for you to see her grow healthy and happy.

How many weeks old is she now?

My wife would like to see current pictures or video.

Then, if you agree, I’ll proceed with payment on your website, I guess?
