News Reel - Internet Scam

I found this one when reading some of the headlines this week and thought I'd share with you.

Internet Scam Targets People Wanting to Buy Dogs

Ok, so seriously. If you're dumb enough to buy a dog through a "secure" site on the internet, sight unseen with no guarantee ... well, I'm sorry but maybe you really should learn a lesson and lose your money.

Who's the bigger Asshat in this scenario? The idiots buying or the scam artists taking the money??

Urban Dictionary Definition

well, there's ignorant and lazy asshats ... the buyer. And there are evil, lazy asshats. Personally I avoid both types. The world would be a better place if they both became extinct.

Maybe HSUS should start doing this. If enough people get scammed, the word will get out and everyone will stop trying to buy these dogs.

I likey.

Gosh, could you imagine how much money HSUS would have for their campaigns if they did this? Might be a good fundraiser.

Good stuff. I hope you do your research. For your sake and your puppy's ... Try to avoid puppy mills, Back Yard Breeders and pet stores. Will you adopt from a shelter or buy a puppy?
