PUPPY SCAM

we were also purchasing a puppy from GraceRetrievers.com and got scammed. Robert qouted is a puppy for $500.00 with a $300 deposit and we could meet the puppy on Sunday here in Dallas. The address he gave was a Dallas address that is owned by someone else and the $300.00 that was sent Westren Union to him was picked up by someone in Huston. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!!!!

Scammed when buying a puppy

My daughter adopted a golden retriever puppy on the internet from graceretrievers. com, this was a scam. He took the money, and then stated, they would need more money to insure the puppy for delivery. $795.00 which most would be refunded. The phone number and internet site have been shut down. I then searched the internet and graceygoldenretriever.com. Beware of any puppy sites stating shipping for free, and it seems like he is using the word grace in his site. Also he makes it sound as if he is religious. He states golden retrievers $500.00. Asks for western union wire, or amazon gift card. THIS IS A SCAM....PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR IT...

Another scam website is

www.Batragoldens.com

It look just like the Gracy golden retriever website and they just switch some of the dogs name around to make it look different

Is this the same website all of you guys taking about?

www.gracygoldenretriever.com

I emailed them for a puppy but I ask to met in person and they want $599 for the puppy and they send me pictures of the puppy I want and all of the documents he will come with. I just hope it's not a scam, if anyone know plz tell me

I emailed them yesterday about Maxwell and I told them I want to get him in person and I was plaining on meeting sometime this weekend or next weekend for him so is this really a scam? They send me pictures and everything of the dog and the paperwork.

Has anyone received any money back yet? Should have read more reviews, feel like an ***

Jerry,

Yes, stay away from that page also. They are the same people.

It seems that that website is still up and running.

I am not sure why this website has not been shut down yet by the FBI Online Investigations.

I filed with FBI, Western Union and BBB. The ONLY one I have heard from is the Better Business Bureau.

They accepted my claim and was posted against the graceretrievers site. It looks like their Web page has been shut down!

That's a good thing! I'm still hoping we hear from FBI and WU.

Does this website look similar to the one you we're on before?

I was looking for golden retrievers and found it today and thought it was too good to be true so I looked up scams with the word gracy golden retrievers in it and your article popped up.
