Uship - Scam for a Shiba Inu!
Hello! I was wanting to thank all the helpful reviews here on this site! I was saved precious money that could be used for Christmas items!
It started with me looking in my local online newspaper for a puppy. I found one man who was claiming to be giving away Shiba Inu puppies for free to a good home. I contacted him (email@example.com) and received an immediate reply!

Subject: Shiba Inu puppies
Thanks for contacting me regarding my lovely pups and I apologize for the late reply, they are called Lauren and Laura They are still available and ready now to go to a new home.Lauren is a male and Laura is a Female, They are 12weeks old pure breed AKC registered, vet check, updated in all shots. Well-tamed and potty trained, good associate with kids and other house hold pets. I live in Kentucky and these puppies will be coming from North Kentucky.
i am giving them out for free and I can arrange for shipping to any loving person who lives far and it will cost $300 each puppy for National Shipment. This is because i have just had my new job as a journalist and it is due-to the mobility of this job that leave me with no choice both to look for a perfect home for these cute and well trained puppies of mine. And i want a home for them as soon as possible.They are very sensitive, well socialized puppies and possesses in the following characters..
Laura She is home and Potty Trained..
-She does not bark a lot.
-She is AKC registered, vet check, updated in all shots .
-She Is socialized with kids and other house hold pets .
-She is health vaccinated.
Laura is one of the largest puppy and one of the calmest puppy we have ever had. She is a little more reserved, but friendly and snuggles right in when picked up for hugs. Her family bond will be strong and loyal. She is also doing great on leash training and simple commands
-He is home and potty trained
-He barks more than Laura but not to much.
-He is AKC registered, vet check, updated in all shots.
-He is health vaccinated
-He barks when he sees strangers.
This cute puppy is the smallest of the litter and is growing fast. At a very young age he would sit up in a royal pose to whine . So the
kids dubbed him Jake. He is totally unafraid to tackle any
of the bigger pups and loves to lick hands and faces if you get too close. He is one of the kid's favorites and gets handled a lot.I will like to know more about you.

-Do you have kids?
-Are you familiar with this kind of breed?
-can you Give me a Brief Description about your Environment?
-What is your occupation?
-Were exactly are you located?
-What is your phone number?
-Are you interested in Lauren or Laura?
-Have you ever arrange for a home delivery of a puppy?

First of all. He said sorry for the late reply although he responded only four minutes after I sent my message! Second of all he had claimed they were free and then in the email said it would cost 300$ to ship one! Crazy!! I told him I couldn't pay the money and then he kindly said he would let me pay 150$ then he would cover the rest. I thought it was nice of him and told him I would not get paid till Friday.
Although I told him this he sent me another email soon after and said he had already registered her! I was upset but I decided not to argue. As I was going to pay I got a weird email from "Uship". Here is the addressinformation they told me to ship money to through Western Union!
