Nigerian Puppy Scam

Date: May 05, 2007
Source: abclocal.go.com


Puppies are big business. Puppies sold over the Internet are a big part of that business. Now the bad guys are muscling in.

You can easily spend a thousand dollars on a purebreed puppy. The toy dogs, like Yorkshires and Maltese, run $1,600 dollars and more. With prices like that, consumers often go looking for deals.

Rebecca Aobaugh now has the dog of her dreams -- a teacup toy Maltese.

Rebecca Aobaugh, dog owner: "I paid $1,600 dollars for her -- my husband paid $1,600 dollars for her."

But before paying that price tag, she paid a higher price in lost innocence and a few hundred extra dollars.
