I know that these two women "** had to remove names, sorry** have done this too many people. Its been reported in many past forums. Although Sarah lives in Colorado sh travels to Mo,and Ok for dog auctions. Yes,I said DOG auctions! hey buy these dogs and sell them to people lke us. This is why MOST of us do not get registered dogs!!! More of her info here:
I, like Ruffian, am very sorry that this happened to you, and I do hope that you get justice. However, the rules for this forum do not allow us to list names, addresses, email addresses, or websites of breeders, good or bad. For that reason, I had to delete those from your post.
I will attempt to find a site where it is permissable to warn about breeders and to get together with others that may have been scammed by the same person in hopes of building a case. I'll ask rhondaKBT, I think she knows of a few.

I really wish there was a site that had a place where you could post "bad" kennel names. There are a few that I would like to put on it, if it existed.
Just an update to let everyone know that the puppymill education is slowly starting to work because there have been several go out of business in my area latley. The one that tater came from recently went completely out too, no more rabbit hutch Iggies. I know that some of the dogs will just be bought by others but an impact is deffinetly being made and its starting to show and its slowly dwindling. People must be doing more research and buying from reputable breeders and turning away from the large operations.
As for the names that were removed in referral to scams. I have learned that in order to put ads on the sites the phone number and name has to be legitimate so they take the names of real breeders and put fake addresses and their email address. I supposedly had something like 47 ads online during Christmas and they were for dog breeds that I don't have. The people who were smart enough to pick up the phone found out that I did not have these puppies but some actually sent money to them just from email contact and were ripped off. I had people calling me mad when I had nothing to do with it. So the names that you are trying to throw about may be innocent people who had their identity stolen.
I learned about http://ripoffreport.com but quite honestly if you that facts then it is not slander,or lible. Been there and done that with the Federal Govt and was told what I can say and cannot. I SURELY do not hold back on my own site, and they tried that game with. :-)
Well, those are the forum rules for here, and the info will have to be removed when it appears. Admin is the one to contact if there is a disagreement about the rules, we are only here to enforce them, we dont get to make them :)
Someone may come up with a site that allows these posts, just have to wait and see.
People are like slinky's, not really good for much. But its still fun to push them down the stairs.
I am sorry you've had such a terrible experience, however Shiny is correct in telling you that the rules on this forum prohibit providing links to other sites, breeder names, kennel names, someone else's name, address and/or phone number (considered advertising if nothing else).
If you have your own site and are willing to assume liability for the content of the site, that is your privilege. Posters should also bear in mind that this site is provided to one and all, free of charge. The owner and administration of the forum should never be placed in the position of having to defend themselves over allegations made by the posters.
You ARE free to provide warnings such as, "Beware of a Pyr breeder in Missouri", something along those lines. Then you are free to provide further information to those who request it via PM.
