Scams selling or giving away non-existent animals, often Puppy Scams.
#399475 by anupmarwadi Thu Oct 31, 2019 10:55 am
We found a puppy online and when contacted, we were immediately sent this information by the breeder:
Email: [email protected], Phone: 401-239 - 2334

TLDR: They requested upfront payment of $750 which included $150 for the delivery.
The next day, we got a legitimate PDF containing the address and the delivery instructions.
Within minutes, we got another email saying that the pet needs a thermal crate that costs $1800 but they would refund $1700 upon delivery. We felt it was a scam and literally called back-and-forth for at least 10-12 times.
They sent us videos and photos of the puppy and asked for the money for delivery. As soon as we paid, they disappeared. I'm upset I lost the money, that's fine, I can always make money, but what really saddened me is that we had promised my daughter a pup for her birthday and we missed out on that.

I called Zelle because my payment was unconfirmed for over 6hrs and couldn't reach through their customer service to stop the payment in time. Terrible service, honey pot for fraud. Please refrain from using Zelle for transferring payments to any unknown sources.

You will need a different CRATE for the safe delivery of your puppy.

Reasons for a change of Crate !!

1: The Delivery crate of the puppy have to be changed from a Ventilated Crate to an
Electronic Thermal Crate. The ventilated crate does not contain potty pet space for water bowl and food cane.

2: The Ventilated crate is too small for the relaxation of the puppy on the flight. Due to the above reasons, the crate has to be changed from a Ventilated Crate to an Electronic Thermal Crate.

3: We are experiencing an unfavorable weather condition and transporting the puppy in the Ventilated crate will be detrimental to the health of your puppy as places are very cold.

4: We need an Electronic Thermal Crate during this period of shipping because it has a TEMPERATURE REGULATOR ( HEATER ) which will be regulated according to your puppy's body temperament there by maintaining a constant body temperature.

From the above reasons,the puppy can not be transported in the original crate.The crate has to be changed and we have to use but an Electronic Thermal crate to ensure the safety of the pet on the flight to your location. We have these crates in our agency in different varieties and PD
(power drive).Here are the various available Electronic Thermal crates listed below:
