Type of a scam Online Purchase
Kevin Booze ( Breeder ) reached out to my cell phone through text. We proceeded to move forward with purchasing a Male Great Dane Puppy for $850. Were were given paperwork from The United States Department of Agriculture for transfer of ownership as well as photos through their buiness email. He requested $850 to be paid through Zelle and the following morning the dog would be sent to a pet agentcy for shipping. Aramex Global Transport provided us with a tracking number and also showed where the dog was during the transfer. Even after we paid the "Breeder" continued to chat with me about the food he was feeding him and potty training. Two days go by and still no dog. The "breeder" was very upset and said that he has used Aramex Global Transport many times and was a trusted company. I then recieve a phone call from Aramex telling me that they can not ship the dog to Chicago O'Hare ( Final Destination) until $1,500 was paid for insurance due to Covid regulations. I began to become concerned and asked if he would pay half so I knew it was real. He agreed and said he would Zelle us. We singed an " official form " stating once the dog made it to O'Hare we would be reimbursed the $1,500. We never recieved half from Kevin Booze. We paid again through Zelle to get our sweet puppy home that we thought was stuck at the airport. We paid Rick Curry ( Insurer ) from Aramex Animal Transport. I felt very pressured & Still no dog . . . The "Breeders" phone number 757-276-1900 was disconnected. The Aramex Websites phone number is still currently working but no answer. We contacted our Bank Chase, contacted Zelle and filed a Police Report. The police officer called the Police Department in Vienna Virgina which is where the dog was from. They stopped at the address given to us and they found out there was noone by the name Kevin Booze living there and this wasnt the first time the owner of the house has been asked. We found out we were the 7th customers that were scammed by the same company.
