Just like the title says. I have been trying to find a reasonable priced puppy for my daughter for Christmas. Geez she wants a Teacup Yorkie but there is no way I can afford $3,000.00 to $11,000.00 for a pup. That's right $11,000.00 for a pup that fits in a cup. Crazy. Well during the search I found some in the $600.00 to $1,000.00 range. Started negotiations on purchasing. Well I was Security Officer for a bank for close to 20 years and when they told me they needed the money wired by Western Union Moneygram, I knew it was not legitimate. So far in the last week or so I have busted 6 different individuals trying to sell puppies that were really scammers. I have had some of them contact me and tell me they were ready to ship the puppy just send them the money. Best one was one person trying to get me to send the money I asked for the last 5 - 6 digits of their drivers license so that I could include it during the transfer so that the receiving end could verify the person getting the money was who was supposed to be getting it. They refused saying the following and I am quoting. i won't sell for u anymore, someone else paid for the puppy this morning,thanks for your time. Sell for me???? I was trying to buy from them. I started playing with the people after I figured from their first conversation on each one of them that they were scammers. It was fun but then I got mad. I have yet to find a puppy for her. I HATE SCAMMERS. They are wasting my time and efforts.
