∙Souris citizens were excited to obtain 2 new, pure bread puppies from a Kijiji ad.  The puppies were located in Halifax, and the buyer only had to pay for the shipment of the animals.  The adopters contacted the sellers and agreed on a shipment price. 

They payment was transferred to the seller.  The seller, then asked for more money, this was for insurance, holding fees in the airport, etc. The sellers asked for the payment to be sent in wire transfers and google play cards. The Google Play Cards were to be purchased and the numbers to be photographed and sent to the sellers through text.  The phone numbers for the texts, and payment locations for the transfers were random and all over North America. 

When the Souris Buyers realized there was not going to be any puppies delivered and just more money demands, the buyers cancelled the order.
