@Vikinggirl Monica, I am just reading this now and I am hoping your blood pressure has come down. My God, if that was my BP, I would be in the hospital...stress. You did the right thing calling the police/fraud division. I believe in karma and this guy will get his. Hopefully, you will see him on the news doing the perp walk (handcuffed escorted by police and going to jail). P.S. you should change the title of the thread to I was almost scammed.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
