Thanks Mike...your post saved me headaches.

Funny thing was that since they had a website with testimonials you are prone to think they are legit. They told me they were in Nevada. I sent a picture to my 17 yo daughter, she said she say the same picture elsewhere and the dog was over 3k. Once I saw the pics and realized it was the same dog, I came out here. Guess I'm going to check everyone of them here first going forward.

Here was the email I was sent by this scammer.

This just happened to me. I wish I did more research. Their website looked so legitimate.Where should I report this to? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thought you'd like to know these people changed the website name to http://darlingdachshundshome.com.

They responded very quickly to my first email asking where they were located and how much they charge. They claimed to be operating out of a location that's just 20 minutes from my home, so I asked if I could come see the puppies and their operation. At that point, they quit talking to me. Ha!

Still listing a beautiful puppy named Shay. Also, one of their "testimonials" features a photo stolen from the home page of Splendor Farms in Bush, Louisiana.
