Scam Description

This website called Julliete Bernedoodles, https://jullietebernedoodle.com/ pretends to sell puppies. I saw their website and dropped an inquiry about a puppy, soon they contacted me and sent the details of the Puppy. Then when requested they sent me pics and videos of the puppy I intend to buy. Then this man named Ryan contacted me using the phone number 6096293106 then says that his wife named Julliete runs the online Berne doodle business and he assists her with it. Once I felt the information he gave me felt like legit, he asked me to transfer $800.00 using Zelle and asked me to put “Family and Friends” in the memo then when Zelle did not work on my side, I asked him if he accept PayPal. He wanted to confirm with his son and once he said his son can accept PayPal, he asked me to transfer money using PayPal and asked me to put “Family and Friends” in the memo and I transferred him $800.00. The next day he tells me the puppy has been shipped via private plane and his company gets a few free coupons. Then the shipping agency called me to get $1500.00 for life insurance of the puppy, which this man named Mike says is refundable. I paid $1500.00
Few hours later, the same man calls me to tell that the puppy has reached Minneapolis and is waiting for some vaccine verification then they ask me to pay $1000.00 plus $550, by this time it seemed like scam to me so I told them I am not going to make any other payment unless the puppy is being delivered. Then the owner tells me he paid $700 and asks me to pay additional $300, which I denied. I never got the puppy delivered nor I get any refunds. Don’t believe this website and these people, this website if FRAUD and SCAM.
