A Letter to Lost Pet Owners

Emails received by TulsaPets Magazine on 7/20/09:

 

Well, I’ve never claimed to be the brightest bulb on the pole….but I did learn a lesson.

 

When that parrot flew off, I put an ad in the newspaper, and craigs list, put up flyers, and posted on Parrot 911 Alert.  I don’t know where these people saw the ads but I got a call from a guy with Pet Finders.  He said they map out where the pet was lost and can make phone calls to everyone in a certain area. The bigger the area you pay for the more phone calls. Being the distraught, stressed out, idiot I was, I said okay and paid them for a 20 block area. That was on Thurs. July 9th in the morning and we got the bird back about five hours later. I called them the next day and told them what happened and he said he would adjust the charge. Well as of today he didn’t. In the meantime I read about this company’s scam….they never do what they say they will. So I looked them up on the Nevada Better Business Bureau. Oh my gosh…it was quite an eye opener. They have an F rating and so many complaints it would take a calculator to add them all up. The reason I bring this up, I think it would be a helpful bit of info for the pet owning public to know about these things in case they have a lost pet and are contacted by these types of businesses. Parrot 911 Alert has all the info about these scams and I just couldn’t believe it. But then, I’m very naive sometimes. The money I spent wasn’t that much to me…heck I would’ve paid three times that much but as it turned out there were two very kind, honest ladies that got him and took him to the vet. Anyway, I’m going to see if this guy does in fact give me a credit…if not I will file a complaint with my cc company.

Later that day in a follow up email:

I also just got off the phone with my cc company and they said I have the right to file a dispute if they don’t give me credit on the charge like he said he would.  They have an address that I got from the BBB in Nevada. Was going to send you the link to the report but the bbb site is messed up and I can’t get it to come up again. I did print it all off though.

Again later that day in a follow up email:

Marilyn:  Here’s the web site.  The phone number is the one I called and talked to the same guy that called me. His name is Steve. They are in Henderson Nevada…the charge on my credit card says that’s where they’re from. http://petfindersalert.com/
