Craigslist - Plumbing Services Review from Houston, Texas

I had a repair done on my patio cover in Corpus Christi by Mark Clayton Stottlemyer because of a leak. Once he claimed it was fixed, the cover continued to leak and I was told he would come back and fix it but he never did.

Uship - Pet Travel Review from Houston, Texas

My boyfriend and I decided that we wanted a male pug puppy, so we began to look on Craigslist, we found a woman who was giving away 2 FREE pug puppies that were both 11 weeks old, she had a boy and a girl. Excited, we immediately contacted the number via text, she explained that she lives in San Antonio (A city 2 hrs from Austin, TX) and we figured it was no problem taking the drive since we've done it several times before for different reasons. We set up to meet her Monday March 16th, but her excuse wad that they were already on their way moving to North Dakota, she explained that as long as we promise to love and care for the puppy, she will ship him to us via airline. She explained that the puppy's health and well being is her biggest priority and that she wants to be able to trust that we will care for him and asked us to promise that we will care for him. After promising, she began to explain to us that since she got all the puppy's shots taken care of and took great care of him, and that she was being nice enough to offer him for free, the least we could do is pay for the puppy's flight which was only $125.00 (NOT including the $9.99 I had to pay to wire the money to them through Western Union, to somewhere in Africa to someone's name that was completely different than anyone I was already dealing with.) So yes, we did actually get $125.00 stolen from us, because after we paid for that, we were contacted from a new phone number via phone calls numerous times throughout the day explaining that our puppy is now on a flight shipping directly to our home address that we gave them (They asked for our full names, home address, zip code, city we live in.) and that it will arrive the same day (Mar. 17th) at 10:40 p.m. or that if we dont stay up that light, he can have it delivered by 6:00 a.m. the next morning, and considering how happy we were to receive him that same day, we assured him that we will be up and waiting for him to arrive at 10:40 p.m. Well, 10:40 turned into 11:15, 11:15 turned into 12:00 a.m. so we decided to call, the numbers both went straight to voice mail, they were calling from a Google phone number, at 12:30 we got a phone call from uship, the same man that told us about wiring the money through Western Union was on the line apologizing because there had been a delay packing our puppy and several others, and that the puppy will not be arriving until the morning at 7:20 a.m. and we told him that it was fine, we'll be up and ready to sign documents that he had to finalize the change of ownership on the little pug. At 2:00 a.m. we received an email from uship (it looked exactly like the "confirmation email" we received after we paid for his flight ticket) that stated in order for them to process our puppy for shipping (even though I had already payed for his flight and they had already finished processing our pups shipment papers which I was told a whole day ago) we had to pay $2,650 because that's how much a male pug pup is worth in a pet store which means that's how much their airline charges for his insurance while on the flight, but not to worry because once the pup has been safely transported to our home, it will be fully refunded to my account. BULLLLLLL! We didn't respond, in hopes that maybe it was just a mix-up, around 6 a.m. my boyfriend got a phone call, it was from the same man at uship, he explained exactly what he had said in the email all over again but over the phone this time. My boyfriend explained that no one had mentioned anything about this from the beginning, and that they had already told us the pup was on a flight to us, but the man continued to try and convince my boyfriend that the money will be refunded to us, its just necessary to assure the pups well being while in flight, my boyfriend said that we will not be paying that much money and told him to refund us our $2,650 dollars but the man continued to try and talk him into it so my boyfriend hung up, and we haven't heard anything yet. I still have all of the texts, and I took screenshots of the emails, and I also have the call logs and my receipt from Western Union regarding the wire transfer. I either want my pug or my $125 refunded since I know more than likely the pug is completely non existent, or I will do my absolute best to have someone track their IP address and have them sued for everything they own.

You didn't get scammed by Uship... it seems someone from Africa scammed you AND UShip.

Everything done on UShip is done ONLY on-line and YOU have to create an account before hand. I know because I am currently listing an item I need shipped and you can't even SUGGEST calling, emailing or offering to pay COD without getting 'red flagged' by UShip. I tried to tell the carrier I was hoping to use that I could only pay him with a post dated check due to pay check dates. THAT got red flagged!

EVERYTHING goes through Paypal or Credit card, both of which are refundable if you don't get what you bargained/paid for. I'm so sorry this happened to you. My daughter ALMOST got sucked into this for a Frenchie puppy... in the end, the woman wanted 'Western Union'.

THAT is your first red flag.

NEVER NEVER send money to a stranger, or even a company, WESTERN UNION!!! I feel comfortable continuing with UShip because I will be using Paypal and I can get my money back.

A similar thing happened to me. I paid $180 for a puppy shipping fee, then $690 for insurance.

After they asked for a crate fee of $500-$900, I realized I was scammed.

I wired the initial two payments to a man named Dante Thomas in Hyattsville, Maryland, who claimed to be an agent for Uship Transport Services. I am calling Western Union to explain the situation hoping they can call the local Maryland police and interrogate Dante Thomas.

This wasn't uship, this is clearly a scam using their name. Anytime you have Africa, Western Union and changing phone numbers and people wanting more and delaying it's clear what's happening.

Good luck getting someone likely in a random Internet cafe in Laos or such to be identified and then suing them. Even in the US you need a subpoena just to get subscriber information with an IP, now do it Internationally

Dishonest-false claims, does not do work or return deposit

I hired a repiar person, gave him a $500.00 deposit and never saw him again. I called him and he gave several excuses with promises to return and complete the work or return the deposit. I had to follow up as he missed two deadlines which he agreed to honor. I agreed to allow him to keep a portion of the deposit as he performed 12 minutes of work as he removed 2 pieces of wood trim in my kitchen in preparation for another contractor. He took $250 and reported tyhat he would return the remaining $250. This did not happen.

I put an add on Craigs list to sell an item, then get a text from 432-547-****

so the sender asks some question on the item, then says take it off the craigs list and consider it sold. next i receive a certified bank check via express mail, and the buyer asks about the check and claims he sent more money to cover the shipping. now, after i deposited it, he claims he wants me to western union the additional funds. turns out the bank check is fake. when i look,, the name sounds made up, the address it came from does not exist, and the phone he is texting me from is not a cell phone maybe skype from nigeria. get a life and stop *** around please !!!
