Scam Description

Came across a website while looking for Dashchund puppies by the name of Marvel Dashchunds. Looked like a professional enough website and I looked at all the tabs.
I found a puppy I was interested in and selected “contact now” on the website.
An email from a person named Ivan Cooper came about an hour later. The email had pictures and a video of the puppy. The email also asked me to answer some questions about the puppy.
I then received a text from Ivan telling me that he had sent me an email. I told him I would look at my email later and he responded “awesome.”
I then started to search for more Dashchund puppies online and came across another website advertising the same puppy with a different name. I screenshot the picture and text it over to Ivan asking if they advertise their puppies on different websites.
I received a response that it was a scam and to be careful.
I ended up answering the puppy questions by email and sent it off. I received a response about 39 minutes later in very broken English stating they would be happy give me the dog and that I needed to put down a deposit.
It felt really off, so I googled the name of the company and found 17 complaints listed under the BBB website.
I then received an text stating the same thing as the email and I responded no thank you!!
I have not heard anything from the number since.
I am submitting this in hopes that it helps someone else.
