We had the same thing almost happen to us but we read the comments you had written prior to sending the funds. The guy spoken broken English and said he was from Orlando, Fl and then said he was from Maryland now as soon as we said we'd like to come see the puppies because his daughter was in the hospital and they had to move there due to health problems.
It sounded more and more fishy so we looked up the shipping company when he wanted us to send a money gram for payment. We immediately knew something wasn't right. Anyway..this might help you to find the person behind this scam. He text us from a phone number 813-816-0165.
Maybe you can track the phone since he text us on the number and that line should be easier to track down. Good luck.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
