I contacted a website (topmalteseandmix.com) for a maltipoo. They reassured of a contract and safe shipping and even had 5 free shipping coupons. I sent money on Friday to secure the puppy (stupid move, I know). They sent shipping info on Monday and said they need $990 for a temperature-controlled crate and couldn’t send in the crate provided. That was an hour ago and here I am filing a scam report.
Talk to a live person, get a contract, send money via PayPal only for business purchases.
