I inquired on google a website to purchase a new Corgi puppy. The inquiry through google brought upwww.uptowncorgies.com as one one of the top results. I looked at their website up and down and evenchecked the testimonials section, contact info, etc. I applied directly through this website to becontacted to inquire further. The very next day I was sent an email on the puppy I was interested in andwas text by the following number, 862-208-4585. I text back asking who this was and I was told I couldrefer to the individual as Murphy. I ask a few more questions about the process and I get sent an emailof the puppies profile and what the pricing included and that the puppy of my choice was available rightaway and that free shipping was available. I inquired further answering the email using my yahoo email.Next I was asked to provide background info on myself like family size, neighborhood description, andother general things, which I did. Then I get a text and follow up email from Devon Jarvis James.Requesting I pay the puppy’s price tag of $550 dollars via Western Union to get thetransaction going. SoI do and I use the Apple Pay option which was part of the “available in minutes” choices as requested byJarvis. The tracking information for the WU transfer is **********. It required Devon’s address so hemade that information available to me and told me to fill in the address portion with 522 Purce StHillside, NJ 07205. I have the confirmation emails of the transaction going through and the confirmationinfo of the scum *** picking up the money from a WU in the area of his area code. He then emails me apurchase agreement with his signatures and informs me that I need to sign it as well. So I did and sent itback to Devon via email. On this purchase agreement is stating a refund clause for me the purchaser.Also about signing this document I agree to return the puppy to them if for whatever reason I can’t takecare of the pup. Once Devon receives the emailed signed purchase agreement he says we can now moveon to shipping and stated the puppy would be delivered today, 8/23/2019, from his shipping company.Well today waiting and waiting all day for the flight details my puppy I purchased was going to bearriving on. Throughout the day I check in with the Devon on the status on everything and then around2pm i get an email from Express Shipping. This email looks fake and yet has all the following informationabout the transport of this puppy:FLIGHT INFORMATION.Fri, Aug 23American Airlines5:20 pm — 7:31 pmNewark (EWR) – Charlotte (CLT)Main Cabin 2h 11mAmerican Airlines 1891 · Narrow-body jet · Airbus A320-100/200Change planes in Charlotte (CLT)2h 50mFri, Aug 23American Airlines10:21 pm — 11:59 pmCharlotte (CLT) – Las Vegas (LAS)Main Cabin 4h 38mAmerican Airlines 776 · Narrow-body jet · Airbus A321-100/200YOUR MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED BACK TO YOU IN CASH UPON ARRIVAL AND DELIVERYOF YOURPUPPY AT McCarran Airport!!NOTE : YOU WILL HAVE TO EMAIL US BACK FOR CONFIRMATION WITH FULL MONEY TRANSFER THAT ISTHE RECEIPTNB: NOTETHE AMOUNT PAID FOR THE ELECTRONIC CRATE WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL BY THE DELIVERY MANINSTANTLY AT THE POINT OF DELIVERY.Direct Line To The Director Tell: +16124448196The said Electronic Crates Fee is Re-fundable upon arrival of your Corgi PuppyIf the crate is not provided within 48hours, we shall place the puppy under PETS ABUSE ANDABANDONING, which is punishable by law according to the rules above.The cost of the Re-fundable crate Policy calculated by our statisticians calculated above.Thanks By The DirectorAbove this section is all this fine print about they need another Western Union payment of $995 for thecrate fee and “Caution Fee:”DEAR CLIENT **** **** ***** **** **** **** *** ****** ******** !!THIS IS A REPORT FROM U-SHIP CARRIERS SERVICES SHIPPER REGARDING YOUR MALE CORGI PUPPY(JASPER) WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO LEAVE UShip Airport To McCarran AirportAND ITS RATHER UNFORTUNATE WE COULDN’T GO AHEAD WITH THE SHIPPING DUE TO SOMEREQUIREMENTS.A THERMAL ELECTRONIC CRATE REQUIRED!A THERMAL ELECTRONIC CRATE FOR YOUR CORGI (Puppy), IS REQUIRED AS THE PRESENT WEATHERCONDITION DOES NOT PERMIT US TO FLY YOUR PUPPY IN A BASKET BOX THAT WAS GIVEN TO US BYYOUR SENDER (Mr Devon Jarvis James ) .

OrangeZip Code/Area code……..07051AMOUNT………………………$995(I have all the original correspondents saved from both these individuals)As you can see it states the shipping company needs this payment in order to proceed. At this point I amgetting text messages from Harley from the 612-444-8196 phone number requesting I make thepayment to get the pup on the next flight the company has scheduled. So I do via Western Union onceagain. This man known as Harley is requesting I use a debit card which I decline and tell him that theApple Pay option requires his full address in order to go through. Harley is reluctant to do so. So I thentext Devon to advise him of the situation and to get the shipping guy to forward me his full address so Ican process the transaction. I finally get Harvey to send me the full address which is 18 Charles St Apr 4Jersey City, NJ 07307. The transaction goes through I send him confirmation and the I am told the detailsof the flight will be sent to me momentarily. I call the gentleman Harley and ask him why doesn’t hehave all the info already I handled my part he said he would have it shortly and hurried off the phone.Both these gentleman had Jamaican or Haitian accents. In the meantime I am sending all the flight infoto my wife and she starts really getting suspicious. She asks me to inquire about a current photo of thepup I thought I purchased. So i text Devon first asking for a current photo. He dances around thequestion saying the pup is already at the airport and to ask Harley. I ask Harley for a picture. He says theDevon should’ve sent it to me. I call Harley asking him what is taking so long and he just kept saying thathe was trying to get everything done and to let him do so by getting off the phone. I text Devon and tellhim that I am starting to get suspicious and I flat asked him am I getting scammed?! Devon getsdefensive and starts saying why would I say that. Then starts regurgitating info from the profile of thewebsite stating that he has 20 years in breeding experience. I told him then what is taking so long andwhy cant either him or Harley give me any updated photos with the date etc. Devon starts deflectingand dancing around my interrogation. I tell him that the shipping company is fake and as his defense tothat question is to send the following web address, expresshippinglogistic.com/. I click on it and itdoesn’t even match the email address Harley sent me. Devon and I are going back and forth now and hetells me that this is the same company with nothing to back it. He also claims that a tracking number forthe puppy will be sent to me shortly. I keep pushing the issue and and I call HARLEY in betweendemanding more information like this so called tracking number. Harley tells me give me another hr orso and not 5 minutes later the payment i submitted via western union to Harley was confirmed pickedup by email notification. I go back to Devon and tell him that the shipping money I sent was just pickedup and how this is all starting to be a real problem. He takes offense and tells me that I am too muchhassle for him. That he should just refund me and go pick up the puppy from Harley. I tell him yes pleasedo. He then emails me a tracking number and says I should be good now. I go to my email and find link,expresshippinglogistic.com/track-form/?redirect_to=http://expresshippinglogistic.com/wp-admin/. It takes me to the website with the tracking info section. I place the tracking number given tome by Devon’s email, AWB086076204530. After I type in the tracking number i get the followinginformation:AWB086076204530Shipper InformationDevon Jarvis JamesHillside New Jersey , 07205 +1 862-204-3967 [email protected] Receiver InformationSHIPMENT STATUS: ON HOLDShipment InformationOrigin:USAPackage:Male corgi…JasperStatus:On holdDestination:USACarrier:Type of Shipment:Air TransportWeight:10-12Shipment Mode:FlightCarrier Reference No.:AWB086076204530Product:PETSQty:1 – Male corgi… JasperPayment Mode:CashTotal Freight:11Expected Delivery Date: August 24, 2019Departure Time: 5:20 pmPick-up Date August 24, 2019 Pick-up Time: 7:31 pmIt’s at this point I start questioning the suspects and they both start back pedaling on everything. They said everything is good after I paid an additional $475 to them for the “Vaccines” that were supposed to be update already as stated on the website. Complete copy cat of other puppy scams. I told Devon I am not paying that you need to pay that to which he said he can’t. If I don’t pay it then I don’t get the puppy. I called him out on everything again and Devon started deflecting saying I am being a headache and this is too much. I advise that I will report him and he makes threats that he will sue me and all this crap. I start texting him photos of the fraud reports I filed and thats when all communication stopped. Devon would not answer my calls or text messages. I am sure I am blocked now from the 862 number.
