Scam Description

they requested $1500 in 3 gift cards – had to be visa gift cards, for the electronic thermal crate due to the size of the teacup yorkie that could have according to the airlines gone on the plane with the nanny instead and the crate they charged for was 1cm by 1cm by 1cm and weighed 1kg the dog is 12 weeks old and weighs 2 pounds and is bigger than 1cm x 1cm x 1cm. NOW i cannot get my money back and they decided that once they said they shipped her that they would route her to New Mexico Alburquerque International airport and that customs there had her and was holding her for another $3000 in visa gift cards which they promised that all would be returned except the $37 dollars difference on the rental of the thermal crate. at this point i am heart broke and just want my money back. I have noticed that now they are emailing stating that the seller will pay all but $1000 of the $3000 if i can and will just come up with the $1000 i can have her the next day but i know that now she is not real. I purchased Heaven off the website of Urban Teacup Yorkies in Colorado Springs CO and have no dog for my elderly dad now. She was $780 on top of the $1500 and now they want more to get her to me. what a crock of crap. Little do they know …..
