Please help, I think this is a scam and I do not want to be taken advantage of. First, the person called me on the phone, through some operator thing that did the talking for the person on the other end. They say they live in Idaho. The person was talking over a computer and the operator was telling me what was being said, some kind of ephone???? Well then I got an email that says they want to buy my pup, but want to send certified check or postal money order, but they want to arrange shipping due to having someone who the get to pick stuff up for them and bring to their state, so I want to know what everyone thinks please, for my pups are family and I don't want anything to happen to them. Thank you very much. Carol Catahoula 16
I would say scam, but you would want to make sure that the person was not deaf and using an operator service to help them make the phone call. You could always ask for the number, and try to call back.
It is diffinately a scam. Because I have dealt with a deaf person for a puppy. The governoment provides phones to the deaf with a screen to type and then it is automated on your end and when you speak it translates into the screen in a typed message. And if they found you via the internet, and they truely were deaf, why not just send an email. I have heard of this scam before. So do not fall for it.

DO NIT BUY FROM CRICKET IN KINGSTON/BREMERTON. WE PURCHASED A CHIHUAHUA FROM HER. SHE DID NOT TELL US HE WAS DEAF!!!!!!!!! THE POSTING IS STILL UP ON THIS SITE!!!!!!!!!!! WE PAID $500.00 FOR THE DOG. WE SPENT $50.88 FOR THE VET TO DETERMINE THAT THE DOG WAS IN FACT DEAF, (WE NEEDED SUBSTANTIAL TESTIMONY FROM A LICENSED VET TO RETURN DOG). I HAD TO TAKE 4 HOURS OF MY DAY, PENT $40.00 IN GAS, AND $23.10 IN FERRY FEES TO RETURN DOG. WHEN SHE SOLD IT TO US SHE WAS WILLING TO MEET ANYWHERE AS SHE WAS GETTING RID OF A DOG AND GETTING MONEY......WHEN THE TALES WERE TURNED SHE WAS NOT ACCOMMODATING AT ALL, OF COURSE. SHE SAID SHE WOULD GIVE US THE MONEY FROM THE VET. I NOTICED THE DOG WAS DEAF WITHIN 3 HOURS. THE BREEDER HAS HAD THE DOG FOR MONTHS AND CLAIMS SHE HADN'T NOTICED.........NEGLECT? THE POST IS STILL ON THIS SITE WITH NO DISCLOSURE TO THE FACT THE PUPPY CANNOT HEAR. I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO STOP THIS "HOBBY BREEDER" FROM PRODUCING MORE PUPPYS. SHE CLAIMS HER MOM HAS THE DOGS AND SHE SELLS THEM FOR HER. CRICKET LIVES IN KINGSTON AND SHE CLAIMS HER MOM LIVES IN BREMERTON. AFTER SOME RESEARCH, THIS SOUNDS LIKE TACTICS PEOPLE USE TO DISSOLVE PAPER TRAILS. PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND IN VIOLATION OF AKC REGULATION. THIS IS ALL NEW TO ME AS I HAVE NEVER PURCHASED A PUPPY. I AM LEARNING QUICKLY ABOUT SCAMS. *****SCAM***** DO NOT BUY FROM CRICKET!!!!!!!!!!!
