Searched for Samoyed Puppy
Found the above website with pictures.
Contacted website via email.
Was texted by Robert Junior at 512-952-5953.
Zelle the cost of the puppy and was told dog would be shipped.
Was contacted by [email protected] and told the puppy was not in a sufficient A/C crate. To wire $1,923 for deposit and crate rental to Regions Bank, 5251 Westheimer Rd #175, Houston, TX, Account Name Denzel P. LLC, Account # 0278191025, Routing # 062005690
Contacted Regions bank and was told not to wire money, account was a personal account not business account.
Contacted breeder was told he would cover deposit, which of course later needed $750 because he was short. I informed him his site advertised free shipment.
He then agreed to put all up front and I would reimburse actual rental fee via zelle.
Then today, day of second attempt at shipment, he is of course $500 short.
I have now informed him if he cannot hold up obligation of free shipment, to refund money.
Silence, no more contact with the Robert Junior.
I have all the emails, texts, and contact information for Robert Junior, the Samoyed Breeder Website and the Shipping Express company.
I have come to the realization I have lost my $699, not sure what to do next.
