Dog flipping scams on the rise
Here’s a great video and article about dog flipping. It’s a scam that we all need to be aware of and pass on the information.
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) –
For pet owners, the thought of someone else claiming their dog and selling it is devastating. It is a scam called “pet-flipping,” and it is on the rise in Kansas City. Mike Pfieffer loves his two dogs, Buddy and Marlie. But when he recently found a dog in his neighborhood and posted it on Craigslist, things got a little fishy. “He couldn’t tell me where he lived. I just found the dog right up the street, and he couldn’t answer a few other questions,” Pfieffer said.
Pfieffer agreed to meet the man and was talked into handing the dog over, only to see the same dog for sale the next day on Craigslist. Taking the steps above, share this article with others, and let’s send the fraudster packing.
