below is from a Scammer! Some of the emails
may not look like scams, but they all lead to the same
thing. The scammer will pay by check (cashier's check/money
order) for more then the pet is worth, then they will
ask you to send them back the difference in money. A
couple weeks later you find out the check was fake and
the bank will take it out of your account. This scam
can be set up several ways.
key points for pointing out a scammer:
1. Doesn't care much about the pet, just the transaction.
2. Says they will use their own shipper.
3. 95% of the scammers are from overseas (Nigeria, Israel, South Africa)
4. Pays you more then the pet is worth, then asks for the difference in money back.

Darlene Escobar is her name...her phone is 931 934 2775...email is: Her ads were placed in the Nashville ebay classified Ad# 4030746 and the GoLSN local sales network Ad#: 4601103....both advertised and showed a picture of a black female pug...when I got the pug, her eyes were very badly damaged....Escobar had disguised this by putting Vising into the dogs eyes by her own admission...I took her because she told me they were red because she had been out in the sun too long that day...by the time I got back home to Va. the visine had worn off and I could see there was something drastically wrong with her L eye...my vet did a emergency surgery to try to save the eye....the R eye is also damaged (badly ulcerated) so that one is sewed shut too for 2 weeks to see if they can heal...she also had the worst case of worms I'd ever seen (worms were actually dropping on my arm on the drive home)...she also we just found out after receiving blood work has Giardia....which will cost another small fortune to clear up...I'm not looking
for money back...just to save anyone else the heartache and expense of dealing with this woman...not sure if she's a puppy mill, associated with a puppy mill or just a very bad backyard breeder. I paid 800.00 for the dog which is not cheap...another 800 to the vet so far...probably going to go up...
