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.

You will have to effect the payment for us to validate your order and proceed with the necessary paper work for your puppy SHAY we will within 2 business days of receiving payment, confirm your order,process all required paperwork, have our license veterinarian perform last minute routine checkup on your puppy SHAY Like we said, we book flights for Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays (You have to chose which day suits you best).

***When making the payment make sure you specify the payment option to be “pickup up at agent location“ (or money in minutes)

kindly proceed to make payment in person/cash at a Money Gram Store. Once you are done please email us a scanned photo of the money gram receipt of payment you got okay .

NB/ You can find Moneygram in any Walmart store around you. So you need e to hold the money in cash and tell them you want to do Moneygram to Moneygram wire transfer.

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.
