We were looking for a Boston terrier puppy and found "Luna" on the website royaltybostonterrier.com. After messaging back and forth multiple times over several days we went ahead and purchased the $500 dog plus the cost to ship her to our door.
We were promised her the next day and she never showed up. During that time we recieved an email that we needed to pay a "refundable" insurance for her freight. Moonlight Chauffeur Transportation was the company that was to deliver her to our house. Moonlightchauffer.com
We were duped. We should have known better, but our hearts got the best of us.
Once we realized our mistakes we contacted our bank and the money transfer company. Both companies have been so gracious and are investigating these two companies.
Unfortunately this was a hard lesson to learn. Please beware and don't let your feelings towards a picture of a cute little puppy effect your bank account.

I bought a dog ($500). (Or thought i was) planned to drive out of state to get dog. Was told no, it would be cheaper to ship to my door at $150. Reluctantly agreed. After 6 hours, was told the dog was in my state what would need to pay $1500 more to have him finished being shipped. Then was told i needed another $150 to feed dog over night. I said no and that id just drive to get him. They told me i couldnt. I wasnt allowed to. That if i didnt pay the 150, i would go to jail for pet endangerment. I got the 150, then was told i needed an extra $2000 for a certificate of some kind and that it was required by law. When asked why they didnt state this before shipment, they never replyed. And still refused to let me come get dog! Told i would report them, they said it wouldnt do any good and id go to jail if i didnt pay. And they only took gift cards.
So to agency, i paid 150+750+350+150=$1400 just to ship dog to me. Not to mention the $600 i paid to buy the dog.
