we saw a advert for a male pup puppy for sale in our area we emailed them and found out they were infact from morayshire but would ship the pet to us we was silly to believe them and paid them the £100 for the puppy they then said they needed £200 but we had spent our last bit of money giving them the £100 we said all we had was £30 in my purse so they said if we paid that them (the shipping company)would help an pay the rest they then later said they needed another £500 for insurance n asked us to sell our car or tv or what ever we could to get the money as it would be refunded at when the pup was delivered in cash we managed to borrow £100 now there asking us to pay a further £300 for them feeding the pup while its been in there care we are do not work as my partners has got a back problem and we have a disabled son who we was wanting the pup for mainly as he adores dogs and thought it would be good for him, everytime we said we had nomore money they threatened that the pup would be took to quarantine and we would be in deep sh*t if that happened so we should do as they said so we didnt get in deep sh*t and fined upto £5000etc etc so we got scared and kept trying to pay as much as we could from borrowing and selling a couple of little things we had now our 4 children are left heartbroken and were left with no money and mney to pay back but nothing to show for it. below are the emails we have had from the puppies owner and the shipping company:

I will like to give to you the puppy since you are very interested in the puppy . so we are willing to arrange for a safe home delivery of the puppy for just £210 including the shipping cost to your home address. If this is okay by you , let me know so that i can send you some recent pictures of the male now okay. We decided to reduce the price to £210 since you complained that you can not afford for a high price and also because we really want to give to you our puppy okay.

REMEMBER TO TELL THE CASHIER THAT YOU ARE SENDING THIS MONEY TO A RELATIVE BECAUSE IF YOU TELL HIM/HER THAT YOU ARE SENDING THE MONEY TO A SHIPPING COMPANY, THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU HIGH ON THE TRANSFER CHARGE , BUT IF YOU TELL THEM THAT YOU ARE SENDING THE MONEY TO A RELATIVE,YOUR TRANSFER CHARGE IS GOING TO LOW OKAY. PLEASE JUST GO NOW AND DO AS WE HAVE DIRECTED YOU . WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH THE NEW TRANSFER, THEY ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU A NEW 10 DIGIT MTCN NUMBER WHICH YOU ARE GOING TO CALL US AND GIVE IT TO US SO THAT WE CAN NOW ACTIVATE THE PUPPY'S DELIVERY CARD FOR A SAFE HOME DELIVERY AT YOUR ADDRESS OKAY. PLEASE YOU HAVE TO BE FAST ABOUT THIS BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT THIS PUPPY TO ARRIVE YOUR ADDRESS IN THE NIGHT OKAY. SO JUST GO NOW AND PROCEED AS WE HAVE TOLD YOU AND CALL US BACK WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH THE NEW TRANSFER. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCES AND THE DELAY .
THANKS FOR USING OUR SERVICES
WE WILL LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT WE CAN NOT PROCEED WITH THE DELIVERY WITHOUT AN ELECTRONIC CRATE BECAUSE THE PUPPY NEED THE CRATE SO THAT IT WILL KEEP THE PUPPY WARMED FOR THE JOURNEY. SO PLEASE DO SOMETHING THE PUPPY NEED TO BE PUT IN THE NEST AVAILABLE CARGO COMING UP SOON.
THE MONEY OF THE CRATE IS REFUNDABLE UPON THE ARRIVAL OF THE PUPPY. WE WILL TAKE THE CRATE BACK. SO IF YOU CAN LOOK FOR THE MONEY SOMEWHERE SO THAT WHEN WE BRING THE PUPPY WE REFUnD THE MONEY AND TAKE OUR COMPANY CRATE BACK. THIS IS WHAT WE DO TO ALL OUR CLIENT SO YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST.
WE WILL LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THE DISAPPOINTMENT BUT IT IS NOT OUR FAULT. THE PUPPY LEFT OUR AGENCY THIS MORNING AS SOON AS WE CONFIRMED THE PAYMENT OF THE 30 WHICH YOU PAID BUT WAS HELD BY THE INSURANCE DEPARTMENT AT SOUTHAMPTON, SO PRESENTLY THE PUPPY IS AT SOUTHAMPTON AND THE INSURANCE DEPARTMENT SAYS THAT IF THEY DO NOT CONFIRM THE PAYMENT OF THE REFUNDABLE INSURANCE WITHIN 3 HOURS TIME THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE THE PUPPY TO QUARANTINE. WE WILL NOT LIKE YOU TO BE A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCES BECAUSE IF THEY TAKE THE PUPPY TO QUARANTINE, THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU VERY HIGH YOU ARE GOING TO PAY BETWEEN 5000 TO 7000 IF THE PUPPY GETS TO QUARANTINE OKAY. SO THE BEST YOU CAN DO IS TO SELL ANY OF YOUR PROPERTY THAT YOU HAVE WHICH CAN RAISE THE 500 AND JUST GO NOW AND SEND US THE MONEY SO THAT WE FORWARD THE MONEY TO THE INSURANCE DEPARTMENT IN SOUTHAMPTON. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF BECAUSE THE MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED BACK TO YOU UPON ARRIVAL OF YOUR PUPPY AT YOUR ADDRESS OKAY OR BETTER STILL YOU GO AND TAKE A LOAN AT THE BANK BECAUSE WHEN THE PUPPY ARRIVES YOUR ADDRESS, YOUR ARE GOING TO BE REFUNDED 650 AND NOT 500 WHICH YOU PAID OKAY . PLEASE TAKE OUR ADVICE AS WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO FALL A VICTIM. WE HAD A CASE A FEW MONTHS AGO LIKE YOURS, WHERE A CLIENT REFUSED TO PAY THE REFUNDABLE INSURANCE AND THE INSURANCE DEPARTMENT DECIDED TO TAKE THE PUPPY TO QUARANTINE . WHEN THE MATTER WAS TAKEN TO THE QUARANTINE, THIS CLIENT ENDED UP LOOSING MORE THAN 5000 FOR ANIMAL ABANDONMENT AND PET ABUSE. WE DO NOT WANT THE SAME SITUATION TO HAPPEN TO YOU OKAY. SO THAT IS WHY WE WANT YOU TO ACT FAST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. JUST THINK OF ANY POSSIBLE MEANS WHERE YOU CAN GET THE MONEY OR SELL ANY OF YOUR PROPERTIES THAT CAN RAISE THE AMOUNT AND LET US KNOW BESIDES THE MONEY IS REFUNDABLE UPON ARRIVAL OF THE PUPPY AT YOUR ADDRESS OKAY .
