Even though this person got several thousand dollars of my money back in November 2007, as of 16 January 2008 I have not managed to get her to honour our contract for shipment of two pug puppies. She has promised to give me my money back three separate times but hasn't followed through, citing vague personal problems.
I've concluded that this is just a scam and have contacted the police, but I doubt I will ever see the cash I'm entitled to again, even though she has agreed to what she owes me in writing more than once.
If this kind of information had been available before I tried to do business with her, I wouldn't be in this situation today. I hope I can save someone else the hassle--there are plenty of honest, ethical breeders around for you to deal with.
