Designer Puppies / money paid and no dog delivered
A $300.00 deposit was given in good faith to buy a Liver Parti T-cup Schnauzer back in March of 09. Shortly after Crystal Costopoulos recieved my deposit she e-mailed me and told me my puppy had died. At this time she offered my money back but asked if I would wait til more puppies were born and maybe she would have a t-cup for me. I agreed but reserved the right to my refund. She agreed by e-mail. 6 months went by and only 4 puppies were offered to me. one 6 months old with a higher price, and 3 others that were not t-cups. I e-mailed her and asked for my money back. She agreed. She then sent a check for $100.00. She explained she needed to sell another dog in order for me to get the rest. One month later I e-mailed her and stated I had been more than patient and wanted the rest of my money $200.00 back now. She told me she would send another check right away. When I recieved the next check it was only for another $100.00, with a note stating she wasn't giving the rest back and changed her website to say this over 6 months later. I am now out of $100.00 and I still have no puppy from her. What recourse do I have. She should not be able to have her website on google if she is ripping off people of money. She did not follow what she said she would do and other people need to know this before they do business with her. Her reply to me was "do what you can, you can't touch me, Try to get the rest of the money out of me, you are in Kansas and I am in Colorado! Good Luck!" I feel she has done this before to others and she needs to either give me back my last $100.00 or not be allowed to advertise on Google. Apparently she is running a rippoff scam.
