Scam Description

I was searching on the internet to purchase a Shih Tzu puppy. I was careful because there are so many scams out there. I had previously purchased 2 ragdoll kittens over the internet approximately 2 years ago so I was pretty confident in looking for a puppy. Well I engaged with a website named amazing Shih Tzu puppies for sale. The information was completely understandable. I interacted with a person who did not give me her name. I asked for it several times. Everything (the price $650 $750 if shipped to door). I was like trying to catch a 2000 pond tuna. I was able to see another correspondence they were having with a retired couple but they were using different names a Ofelia Loret de Mola@ att.net. I was persistent in asking them to call me and at the end of the work day 7:00 on Tuesday a man finally called from that number. He barely spoke up until I told him there were fraudulent reports made against his company. He asked me for the link and didn’t understand how a report like that was made. I said give me what I asked for… your names regarding the company your address of the business and home along with all emails associated with the company and phone numbers. Then I told him I wanted to see you or one of your employees holding the dog I was interested in zoom or Facebook. He agreed and has not done anything I asked. He sounded like he had a Nigerian accent but he spoke very softly. They are selling on Facebook and other sites I found them doing an internet search. So many people could be ripped off while buying these puppies. This is why I am taking the time to tell people.
