  1. I have reported a pet scammer on Facebook for months and nothing has happened. He even stole one of my puppy pics and has it on his page. I reported to FTC and other government agencies and know one cares. People have contacted me that have been scammed and reported it as well. All his photos and videos are stolen off breeder websites or from the internet. I reported his gmail because I have email confirmation on how he will ask for money to be sent Western Union Friend Family. How can you stop this puppy scammer ?

    – HOW DOES THE RECEIVER WISH TO TAKE THE MONEY TICK …..”PICK UP AT ANY AGENT LOCATION”
    – ALSO TICK “MONEY IN MINUTES”
    TAKE NOTE OF THIS ADVICE :
    WHEN MAKING THE PAYMENT AT THE WAL-MART STORE OR WESTERN UNION ASK
    FOR SENDING FORM AND MAKE SURE YOU FILL OUT ALL THE DETAILS CORRECTLY
    ,AFTER THAT GIVE THE FORM BACK TO THE CASHIER
    WITH THE MONEY AND ALONG SIDE WITH EXTRA CHARGES THAT THEY
    WILL ASK FOR SENDING THE MONEY.WHEN YOU’RE DONE JUST TAKE A PICTURE
    OF THE RECIPT AND SEND TO ME SO I CAN PROCEED WITH THE SHIPPING
    NOW LISTEN CAREFULLY IF THE CASHIER ASK YOU WHY ARE YOU SENDING THE
    MONEY TELL THE CASHIER THAT YOU WANT TO SEND THE MONEY TO A FAMILY
    FRIEND SO THAT THE SENDING CHARGES WILL BE LOW.IF YOU SAY IT’S FOR
    COMMERCIAL/BUSINESS PURPOSE THEY WILL CHARGE YOU HIGH SO TELL THE
    CASHIER IT IS TO A FAMILY FRIEND.HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND ?
