We purchased a 10 wk old cocker spaniel puppy from cockerspanielpupshome for $900 then we were asked to pay $1490 to ship her out of state paid that then they wanted $1600 to rent an air conditioned crate cause first one was rejected! I drew the line there realizing there was no puppy to begin with! We are out $2400 with no puppy! Something needs to he done! Very well played it was, believable & exquisite website, learned a valuable lesson YOU CAN’T TRUST ANYONE!

It first started with the owner lying about who she was and lives. I paid her $800 for a cocker spaniel and $100 for a flight. The first day the dog was to be shipped Global Air County said they couldn’t send her with an insurance policy costing $1400 that would be refunded. I paid it. Then, the next day the crate didn’t meet code because it had no air conditioning. That would be a refundable $1400 and I paid it. Then, they needed $900 for the dog being in quarantine for four days. I paid it. They just said the dog was in the air and then sent me an email saying she needed a vaccine. I want to get with all the people this has happened to no file a fraud and civil suit. I’m also going to contact every news station that will list to me to spread the word to all whom will listen. This has to stop!

They are a scam based shipping company that is used by a scam based dog breeder named Jackson Bassett. They use time and peoples desires to receive a puppy from them. They tell you that due to covid -19 there is a need to take out flight insurance or the puppy you have paid for, can not ship and will be held in quarantine for up to 2 months .You don’t want that to happen to your puppy you paid for and they give you little time to do because the flight is leaving soon. Then after they receive that payment they tell you your puppy is reading for shipping and send you a fake manifest that you think is real. When you feel the pup is on the way they contact you and you are informed that the breeder dropped the dog in a un approved crate and you will either have to rent or buy one. So now you have the cost of the pup, insurance and you don’t want to not receive your pup. All the while the breeder is assuring you that they have talked to the shipper and all these changes are due to covid -19 and everything will be alright. So you rent shipping crate. After that I called the airport and asked if they fly into that airport to be told no. They then contact you again and say your pup is on the plane and they are sending you a revised manifest. That’s when I confronted them and said the airport said they don’t have any airline with that name using that airport. Then tried to say they do and your pup is on the way. When I said the internet said the company was a scam, they hung up on me. Now the calls go to voice mail. So I’m out $800 for the pup $250 for shipping $1500 for insurance. $1000 for the rental of the airconditioned shipping crate. $3550 total. The breeder is Jackson Bassett. They work together to gain your confidence. I feel like the fool I am

My husband and I were looking for a Boxer puppy for our children. we found one on www.farmhouseboxerpuppies.com we paid $800.00 through zelle (BTW never send money though zelle you will never get your money back). My puppy was supposed to be here yesterday at 5pm. at 4:30pm i got a email stating i needed to pay for insurance, I got a phone call a text confirmation and a email. I googled is global air county a scam and i found out other people were going through the same as I was. They wanted me to pay $1500 i told them no… I never heard back from the seller.

I just realized it was a scam. I’m out 2500 cause I fell for it. 800 for a border collie puppy and 175 for shipping. Then a refundable deposit for pet insurance on the flight and I paid that. Now they’re asking for an additional 2k for an air conditioned crate.

Scam scam scam! I PAID $1000 for an Australian Shepherd to be sent by air to my home by mclarenaussies.com and their website said that they send the puppies by Continental, United or American. Then I get an email from this company requesting $1550 for “pet insurance” because of pandemic. Needless to say they got my money and I got no puppy!

Type of a scam Online Purchase
So, my partner found this website called www.familyhavanesepups.com. The website informed us that they are a family of breeders for the Havanese breed. It seemed legit–they had testimonials and quick response emails after we had inquired about a 10-week old male havanese puppy that was listed for $550 on their website. After sending back-to-back emails about me, my environment and my information, we finalized on the sale. However, it ended up being $700 in total. We thought that the extra $150 was for the puppy’s plane ticket. They said, and I quote "the $700 covers for everything including delivery, also the delivery at your door step it’s optional. It all depends on you to let us know which is preferable to you: pick up at the airport/delivery to your home address before registration is done" So, we went through with it and I texted my VERY PERSONAL DETAILS. So after that, they asked me to pay through Zelle the $700. When I was making the transaction, there were many failed attempts becuase the phone number they had wasn’t registered and the email they provided didn’t exist or was not registered, etc. It finally went through under an email "[email protected]". After one business day, an agency under the name global air county sent me a tracking number with details of the dog I had inquired about and bought. Before they could continue however, the agency told me I had to pay $1490 for pet insurance, to "ensure the safety of the dog in its travel" and that "the $1490 will be refunded to me". At that point, it was very fishy and suspicious. I contacted the seller and asked what this was and why this wasn’t told to me beforehand. And she responded saying, "I myself wasn’t aware of this until now and definitely it’s due to their new policy because of the pandemic. If I knew of this, I would’ve told you before." After she had said this, my mother and father did their own investigation on matters such as these and it seems to match up with articles of similar pet scams. I am heartbroken and have lost $700. I asked if a refund could be in order and they did not answer my question, they simply said "how much can you come up with, I will figure out the rest because if we don’t handle this payment, the puppy will be ‘quarantined’ and you know what that means". At that point, I had my answer and this is a full fledged scam that should be and MUST BE INVESTIGATED FURTHER SO THAT I MAY GET MY FUNDS BACK. IT IS MY BIRTHDAY, THIS WAS A BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR ME AND I AM ALREADY DEALING WITH SO MANY SOCIAL ISSUES AT THE MOMENT THAT THIS WAS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. I HAVE HAD IT AND I WANT JUSTICE TO BE ENFORCED IMMEDIATELY!

Same here. Scammed. And lost $700, filed a dispute but bank said I may not get my money back once its completed and scammers cash out their account. But Bank rep told me I can file the police report and they can find out the scammers name and detailed personal info since their photo IS was used to open their account. Hope you all file the police report, because I am with the case number I got from the bank.
