Here is the same scammer on another free classifieds website selling Hershey. For those of you who have not read the bottom of this blog, Hershey is my in-laws deceased purebred Pekingese. Hershey was so cute; he seems to be of choice for scammers and fraudulent breeders.

BTW, this website deleted this scam ad less than one hour after I brought it to their attention.

Funny, Hershey seems to be a very popular choice for scammers; I found Hershey being sold again. (this site deleted this ad the same day I reported it to them) Below his picture it read

Seems Hershey was being advertised as a Pekingese / Shih-Tzu cross. It's also funny how scammers can't seem to spell the breed “Pekingese” correctly. The scammer was able to post this for free. It's a free classified site. I wonder how many times Hershey has been sold?
