Possible Scam Alert: Craigslist posting
Just wanted to inform people on YT of yet another scam on Craigslist in the Chicago area just in case they saw the listing. This appears to not be the typical people from overseas but probably backyard breeders. I asked a lot of questions, and all I got was the price in the reply (which is 650).
The following is the post

Unfortunately i can not keep her.I have had her for about five weeks and she is about 17 weeks old. She loves to chew on everything and is semi pottie trained just make sure you take her outside when she barks. I am looking for a good home for her to go to so if you like cute cuddly dogs then look no further. There is a rehoming fee.
The email address it goes to is to a david smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
