Beware of Puppy Purchase Scams
A VERY serious situation exists. Puppies (who do NOT even exists) are being offered for sale on the internet. Innocent people are asked to send money by western union. Then there is NO way to trace. Emails are exchanged and the ‘New Owner’ thinks someone like myself will be delivering the pup. And, there is NO pup. Most of these scams originate in Cameroon and Nigeria. Many of these ads appear on www.puppyfind.com DO NOT RESPOND The internet is overflowing with scam alerts.
Protest TSA Requirement for Third-Party Pet Shippers
Jerry points to three groups who are the culprits in pet shipping scams. These include the U.S. government, the Transportation Security Administration, and the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA). The problem begins with TSA requirements that limit animal relocation service to known pet shippers, meaning IPATA members.
It is an outrage that the government does not trust people, such as military members and State Department employees, to ship their own pets. However, third-party shippers, which make up IPATA’s membership, do have the government’s approval. Protest these policies by using an independent shipper. An independent shipper, such as this independent pet shipper, skips the third-party middlemen, which results in prices that are hundreds and thousands of dollars cheaper.
