This last week was sure enlightening!
BEWARE when purchasing a pet online.
now we have also learned...
NEVER use Western Union or Money Gram to
purchase a pet. Most scammers use Western Union to
steal hundreds and even thousands of dollars from
innocent people just trying to find that perfect Dog
to bring home to their family.
DO NOT TRUST A SELLER who
states they are from Africa, Lagos, Nigeria, Cameroon or London.
Request Personalized Photos: Require the
seller to send additional pictures of the dog you are
interested in. Require a specific item to be in the photo.
Make sure this item is something you request
(not the seller suggest) such as your name on a piece
of paper, or anything creative you can think of to ensure
the puppy exists. If the seller refuses to send additional
pictures or state their camera is broken, or they do not
have a digital camera, or are unable to for some
reason to send the photos, BEWARE.
