Subject: Well Trained Golden Retriever for Rehoming

Thanks for the interest in regards to my Golden retriever Pups i have
for adoption. There are one Male (LARRY) one and Female (NINA) and
are pure breed
Golden retriever.They are vet checked and will come with all papers
needed. The puppies are very playful and are all of absolute
temperament as they also love
playing with kids and other household animals. They are 11 weeks old
and are brothers and sisters. I am giving the pups out for an
adoption with no adoption fee, this is because we just relocate to a
non pets apartment and we can’t keep them any longer. I will be very
willing to give you these pups if you can promise me of never to
sell them, also do get back to me with the answers of our question
below so i can have an idea of where our puppies will be going to….
-Have you own a pet before?
– Do you have a vet doctor?
-where precisely are you locate
– Are you a breeder?
– will you take all or just one? if one what sex?
-Do you have pets loving children at home?
– Give me a Brief Description about your Environment?
-Will you take good care for the babies like your own child?
All i need is just a very caring and loving home for our babies where
they will be well loved and spoiled to rotten.
Thanks and will be waiting to read from you again.

United States

These details are correct as of today (October 1, 2017) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card. was registered using the email address [email protected].
It was registered 4 months and 7 days ago on May 24, 2017  and expires May 24, 2018.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started May 24, 2017 and does not plan to be using the website after May 24, 2018 as it has only a 1 year registration.

  1. Me too. Exact numbers. For 2 Sphinx kittens. Swift Air Global. Melissa Neves supposedly had them. Thank you so much for posting this!

  2. I just received the same scam, with 2 dachshund puppies. I became suspicious when the name of the puppy didn’t match the name on the collar (besides them being free). I told them I didn’t need to pay for the transportation fee that I have relatives who can pick it up for me. I’m sure I will not hear back from them. The emails are all the same as above with only the name of the dogs changed. The emails I’m receiving are from Morgan Welsh @ 5798 Osprey Watch Ct Charlotte NC, email [email protected]
    Beware! They are listing in several cities for an array of animals.

  3. 2nd email .. after I picked Larry
    email from David Mueller – golden retrievers with no adoption fee !! 😉
    After reading through your mail, you moved to the number one sport in
    my heart for potential adopters of my Lil pup.
    More details on his personality.

    ****** My Lil Boy LARRY******

    -He is brownish in color
    -He eats 2 times a day
    -He likes to keep him self away from the crowd but is also socialized.
    -He feels shy when carried.
    -He also likes Licking..

    My husband and I have decided to give out these puppies to any one who
    is ready to take good care of them and we are happy you are willing to
    do so for him. All we need from you is your love for the baby. I
    really wanted to meet with you so you can pick up yourself but since
    you are not in our area and it’s a distances ride on car i don’t know
    if you will make up the ride to come pick up today or tomorrow.

    We just relocated some few days ago to 5798 Osprey Watch Ct Charlotte,
    North Carolina

    Better still if you cant make it up, he can be registered to a near
    by pets transportation company and will be home delivered to you okay.
    All you will have to do is paying for the transportation fee so he
    will be home delivered to you right at your doorsteps.We are actually
    them away for FREE and all i want in return is just you to take care
    of him and send me monthly pictures so we can see his progress.


    • Name has been changed to Angelica Michael. Moved from Augusta, GA to Charlotte, NC since they posted the add an hour ago . Exact same wording as the above message. Make sure y’all report these a-holes to Craigslist

  4. Ugh, heartbreaking. I just got the exact same email. It seemed too good to be true because it was.

  5. Yah, i just got an e-mail from David, apparently they relocated to Dallas texas yesterday and all I have to do is pay for shipping and handling… really?? There has to be a way to get this a** hole

    • Looks like they moved from Dallas to Charlotte ! Man… David’s been moving almost every week?

  6. Just got scammed by David Mueller after seeing his Craigs list ad in my local MA area. Same thing regarding free golden puppies. Turns out they were in Texas and I would not purchase without seeing them so I did not take them. Thank goodness I found this site.

  7. Unbelievable…this David Mueller got me too! it was the same story as Rosalyn Alsobrook. I’m heartbroken that the golden retriever named Larry does not exist, but at the same time grateful to have found this report first before sending the payment ($450) to him.

  8. I got scammed as well. The first was the pet seller Peterson Philip for 2 AKC Yorkie puppies at the going price of $780. The second was Global Transervice who requested $885 per carrier for the pups to be shipped as cargo, then when the pups supposedly made it to the halfway point in Jackson Mississippi I was told their AKC papers were expired, which was in direct contradiction to the first email telling me the papers were valid. Then they instructed me in the same email to put $1500 per pup on deposit for cargo insurance since the registration papers were expired for two weeks. I told them that I did not have the money for insurance and that the pups would have to stay in Mississippi. I filed a complaint with the FTC and the FBI and when I told the “representative” by email that I had filed a complaint, the texted response was “We don’t shock easy here.” I wonder if they will when the Feds show up? I have filed my claims with my bank and PayPal and will have my money back in 6 to 8 weeks.

  9. Just happened to me! Was told they had 2 French bulldog puppies and needed to get rid of them due to moving…the website they were trying to get me to send $500 to was fake and wasn’t even spelled right ( Their email was [email protected] BEWARE

  10. I was in the process of being sucked in. In the second email, I got this morning I was told the pups belonged to their late son, and they want to be sure they have a loving home. I’m in Texas, so she (even though the email says David Mueller, this second one indicates it is from a woman.) said she was in Richmond, VA; and mentions being able to register with a pet transportation company and send the dogs that way. God Bless you guys for posting this. They won’t be getting $500 from me. I was so excited to think we were going to get a new golden after having lost our 11 year old golden this summer that I couldn’t sleep last night. Now I am broken hearted, but grateful to know.

  11. Wow…this guy got me too. I noticed a couple of the pictures looked like different puppies. How awful…

    Please keep posting about this to keep others aware!

  12. Thank you so much, I had the exact same email sent to me from a David Mueller, after I responded to a post on craigslist for a golden retriever pup in Atlanta, GA area on 4/10/2018. Thank God for you and others who posted these scam alerts on line.

    • Just got scammed from a guy named Ricky Peterson. A golden retriever puppy from Atlanta georgia. He told me he was a pastor and only wanted $100 on a Walmart giftcard but then when he was going to fly the puppy over he said I needed to pay $595 for a kennel and this was after I signed the ownership document. So don’t be scared if you did I called the cops and filed a police report and everything just be careful and I’m so thankful I blocked his number along with the ad on Craigslist.

    • Same thing happened to me just now but his name was Ricky Peterson if that is even his real name.

  13. My mother just got scammed with this exact same prompt, thankfully i reverse imaged searched the pictures they shared and found several pinterest sites with the same pictures uploaded

  14. Thank you . We couldn’t believe our good fortune in having someone sending us a puppy for free.
    When we got the shipping notification, I noticed the double ss on Moverss. And I questioned the money gram request. So glad you had this website. Saved me $440
