Scam Description

The website is for old english sheepdog puppies – when you fill out the contact form the contact you back and then start the application process – they have you send a deposit through Zelle and then ask for final payment through Zelle- once payment is confirmed they start the shipping process and link you to Pet Movers Logistics – the 2nd part of the scam – this site will then ask for a rental payment for a transportation crate – payment through Zelle- once that payment is made – the 2nd day they will send another email asking for another large sum of money for transportation insurance for the puppy because of international law. No puppies are ever delivered and no refunds are given – the Zelle account for the last insurance payment is the same one that the seller uses. I have reported this to local authorities here.
