Puppy Buyer Scammed

A Westfield, PA, woman trying to buy a puppy is the victim of a scam.

35-year-old Melissa Knauer tells police she was looking for a puppy online and saw an ad for a free Siberian Husky, made an agreement with the seller and was eventually scammed out of $479.

State police are continuing their investigation, and remind people to be aware of the scam and not wire transfer money overseas to buy a pet.
