We are Registered breeders, we had 2 puppies when Linda Perales contacted us, and she said she was wanted to buy one puppy for her granddaughters birthday.
Eventhough we sent her pictures of both puppies and asked her which puppy she was interested on, she never showed any interested on the puppies, never made any comments about which puppy she wanted, she was only talking about money all the time. We asked for a phone number so we can talk and she just ignored that question.
We sold the puppies to great families and even after telling Linda Perales that we had no more puppies and that we were sorry that we didn't want to do any business with her, she kept emailing saying that she was sending the check and to deposit the check in our bank and take some money for our time and send her a money order back with the rest of the money.
One morning she emailed us with and email that had on the Subject line:
Payment arrives to you this morning,Do as instructed!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On her email she wrote:
Its a wonderful day ,i just heard from my secretary that the fedex guy called him that the payment has been off to your location for delivery,you can track it at fedex.com and here is the tracking number as shown
SEND THE SHIPPER FUND TO::
NAME: JENNIFER ZIGLER
ADDRESS: 13414 127 STREET
ZIP CODE: T5L1B7
TEST QUESTION; what is my car name
After sending the money you get back to me with the MTCN(10 Digit number ) the sender's name. And the exact amount sent after the western union charges,
I will be waiting for your response.
Be very careful with people like this, the scammer will pay by check (cashier's check/money order) for more then the pet is worth, then they will ask you to send them back the difference in money. A couple weeks later you find out the check was fake and the bank will take it out of your account. This scam can be set up several ways.
Some key points for pointing out a scammer:
1. Doesn't care much about the pet, just the transaction.
2. Says they will use their own shipper.
3. 95% of the scammers are from overseas (Nigeria, Israel, South Africa, and CANADA)
4. pays you more then the pet is worth, then asks for the difference in money back.
This is the address she gave us originally:

The Address on FedEx envelop was:

My husband called the number and the guy said that yes his name was Scot Kampman but that was not his address.
I search Reversed lookup on Whitepages and enter the address and his name was there.
