Authorities are warning about a pet scam. A Lancaster County woman is out $300 after wiring the money, supposedly to buy a Samoyd puppy from someone in Portland, Oregon. The man requested that the woman use a code word so he didn't have to use ID to get the money which reportedly went to Cameroon, not Portland. After the man asked for another $2000 for pet insurance the woman became suspicious and contacted authorities. Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner urges the public to be sure that wire transfers are going to a known, trusted source and to be wary of any red flags to avoid scammers.
