Scam Description

jdeeproy6 advertises puppies for sale on Instagram. He asks $600 per dog and $200 shipping. He asked for $300 deposit. Once the puppy/dog is delivered, you pay the balance. I transferred $300 from my Chase account via Zelle, his Zelle account goes by SIRTARIO. He got the 300 then he wanted me to send $300 more to another email account. I reported it to my bank as suspicious, but my bank could not do anything. On 10/27/2022, he contacted me using WhatsApp. He let me know the dog was being shipped to me. He said to check my email because they were requiring another shipping crate. I was then contacted by the shipping place (https://travelway.express/track-form – Phone number: 1-308-252-3231) and they wanted $1000 to ship the dog. I said no and I texted jdeeproy6 to let him know that this was not the agreement. He replied that I need to pay the crate fee
