Jennifer Powers or Jenn Powers scam me with US$1,500. She is the owner of www.exquisitedanes.com (EXQUISITE GREAT DANES IN VANCOUVER, WA)
DO NOT TRUST THIS WOMAN. She advertise her self like a reputable GREAT DANE BREEDER IN VANCOUVER, WA; BUT SHE IS FAR AWAY TO BE ONE.
1- I send her US$2,500 for the purchase of two great danes puppies
2- After she cleared my check and send me a notification about it. She vanishes for more than a month (I email her over and over, demanding her the puppies).
3- She told me that she was away on a trip helping her family in Canada, for almost 3 weeks. She explain to me that during that time she did not check her email, then she drop the bomb...that the puppies have DIED from COCCIDIA. After this she avoided my emails regarding my money. She did not one to give me back my money.
4- I was really angry. I believe that a responsible and honest breeder would never have a behavior like this. I ASKED HER MORE THAN 20 TIMES to give me my money. I think she was feeling empowered because she live in Vancouver, WA and I live in Dominican Republic (Next to Puerto Rico Island, Caribbean).
5- I Called Law Enforcement in Vancouver, WA. I send to the detective in charge all the proof that I have, emails, the notification from FEDEX receiving the check, everything. After he checks everything he agree with me that her response was not correct. He agrees to visit her.
6- The Law enforcement detective visit her at her home, she got panic. From vanished she suddenly appear, and email me that she would be solving everything with me. She agrees to send me the money in two payments. The first of US$1000 and the second of US$1,500. The second one would be two weeks after the first payment.
7- She did send the first payment (US$1000), but two month have pass and she vanish again with the rest of my money.
8- I have reported her to the INTERNET FRAUD DEPART. from the FBI, also put my complaint with BBB in USA and Canada.
9- Report her with AKC (American Kennel Club) and also Canadian Kennel Club + Great Dane Club of America + Great Dane Rescue in WA. Also many other reputable organization.
10- Not for my surprise after talking by phone with all this reputable great danes organizations, I discovered that SHE HAVE NEVER ATTEMPTED TO A DOG SHOW as she portrait herself in her web page. The worse is that by checking her dog's pedigree on her web page, one of this very important great danes organization found that she mixed the danes colors. She was mutilating the breed standard by doing this (I would never have the chance to show a dog under this not responsible breeding program).
11- Today I check her web site. It was updated, all the photos that show her face; she cut her heat, this way people would not be able to recognize her. She changes her phone number. She was selling new puppies also. She told me that she did not have any litter available.
12- This woman ripped me off, do no trust her. She can do the same to you.
