Jonathan Collie Puppies Reports & Reviews (3)
Jonathan Collie PuppiesThe webside is made out of Ukraine using a stolen credit card. They scammed my family member. When speaking to the scammer who goes by the name Austin we learned he is a Punjab. They use several address claiming its were the puppies reside. When looking up the address they are always apartments. They have the victims send money through Venmo using the name DMEETRI griffin. Even though Venmo has had several complaints they are still allowing transactions to go through and has been sending the funds to the scammers. I feel Venmo should be responsible for allowing transaction to take place when in fact they have several claims made by victims purchasing puppies Knowing these victims even put on Venmo account what the money was for. The scammer scammed these victims for about 2500 to 3000 each. The scammers are using phone service through Google. The first complaint was in April 2022,

Type of a scam Online Purchase
My husband and I tried to purchase a dog from this site. We were contacted via text from 910-420-5409. This did not seem unusual to us because in looking at other pet sites, there are no phone numbers or addresses - it is very difficult to identify where these places are located. The texts included additional photos of the dog (which of course adds to the security of the site and dog being real) and some standard questions that most dog applications ask for. They then requested $850 for the dog (Including a $150 fee to transport the dog), another fee or $950 refundable fee for a Crate and $1,000 (also supposedly refundable upon delivery of the dog). For some reason, only then did I think to Google the name of the company. There are only two entries - One for the site and another being a scam alert - petscams.com. At that point I texted this to the company and there have been a few back and forth texts where the person on the other end denied being a scammer. I requested a refund and said that I'd be happy to fly down to North Carolina (the supposed location) to pick up the dog, in person. I was told that they would refund the additional costs when I got there but there has been no response after asking for the address.
They give fake addresses, from South Carolina to LA
Did you as well pay through Venmo?
