I saw someone popped up on my Snapchat and they were selling. So I went through to him and he seem legit and I sent him 500 via PayPal and he got me my tracking number through @discreetshippingagency and everything looked good but then I received email that my package was placed on hold and needed insurance I gave in and payed another 600 for insurance then the package was on hold again at customs going through an intense security check that I was required to put certain stamps on and required a license which ended up costing me 2k so now finally they are threatening to hand over the package to the police and fbi Im gonna take this as a loss and I dont know what to do now hopefully ignoring these scammers is the answer might even half to delete my email given to them.

Online dog scam cockapoo

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I approached the instagram account that was selling puppies. After talking to the account (cockapoo_puppies_availale) for 2 days I decided to buy a puppy. They asked for the total amount but I told them I would only give them the deposit then give them the rest once the puppy arrives. We payed the deposit through paypal (shelentheandowdell56@***.com) using business and they refunded and asked us to pay using Friends and family. So we paid to Shelenthean Dowdell - shelentheandowdell208@***.com then waited. The next day I got a notification through my e-mail that the puppy was at the shipping agency. This agency was called Discreet Shipping Agency https://discreetshippingagency.com They asked us to pay 249$ for the shipping crate which we payed using Paypal to Michelle Njinda - njindamichelle32@***.com. Later that evening they asked for 600$ more for insurance. They told us they woud pay us back on arriaval of the puppy. After that we realized we were getting scammed. We told them we wouldn't pay anymore and they sent us threatening emails of sending the cops to our house and getting sued in court. I tried to contact the breeder directly but Instagram said the user isn't found anymore. That's what happened.
