Searched through Hubbly classifieds for a pet dog.  Saw ad for inexpensive Pomeranian toy dog. contacted listed owner who at first stated they were in Boca Raton FL. Then Sergey Page who now claimed he had just moved to Portland, Oregon.  Stated he was selling several puppies because his wife had recently passed away and he could not longer care for them.

We made arrangement to purchase dog and he directed us to Uship Pets Transportation Sercvice of Portland Oregon.  He would get the dog the them and they would handle payments for purchase and shipping and courier delivery.We sent via REloadit account the $500.00 purchase price.  Shortly after this the shipper sent an email stating the US Aviation system require shipping insurance on pets based upon retail value. They wanted another $1510.00, via another REloadit card, for an insurance policy, which would be refunded  to us in cash upon delivery of the dog.  

Thats when we contacted the owner of the dog with our concerns over his choice of shipping company.  we suggested shipping the dog via regular air freight.  We have not received any contacts with the "owner" of the dog or the pet shipping company.  Did an google earth search of the company address, and the address doesnt exist.

We are out only $500.00 instead of $2,000.00 over this scam.  Avoid this shipping company and Mr. Page for any business.

AUTHOR: Fraud Prevention Team uShip - ()

Hello,

This is very unfortanate, however, uShip was not involved in this fraudulent transaction, as we do not hold or transport cargo. Information on how our site operates can be found by visiting uShip.com.

What you encountered is known as an online classified scam and the people you were interacting with, may not even be in the United States. Further, please review your email correspondence as most of these scammers user a free email domain such as live.com, hotmail.com, yahoo,com, gmail.com or any other free webmail service. Also, you need to report this to the site where you found the scam so that they can take down the ad and prevent further posts made from that user. Finally, contact https://www.reloadit.com/CustomerDisclosures for information on the money transfer you made to their site.

There never was a puppy. They only request more funds in segmented requests until you realize that you will not receive your shipment.

Again, I am very sorry that this happened to you, but you need to take the proper steps to report this so that online classifieds are aware of the malicious listings.

 

Sincerely,

uShip Fraud Team
