Scam Description

There are a few sites on Facebook for buying a cockapoo puppy. My suspicion is that it is the same person running a few of these sites. The one I used had Steven Jimmy as the administrator. We were scammed out of $2600.00 and no puppy. He uses a “company” called pet delivery for airplane delivery with the names of Jack Anderson Levis and also Jayla Robinson
