Fell for the adorable pictures listing a puppy for sale. Forwarded $450 via Zelle to purchase a puppy. When the time arrived for shipping, I was informed that a special crate was needed and a deposit of $750 was needed for use of the crate. The deposit would be returned once the puppy was delivered and the crate was returned.
When I refused to send the additional funds and requested a refund of my initial $450, I was told refunds were not issued. I sent and received many e-mails regarding this scam without having a solution. I later found a web site that listed this seller as a scam artist.
