First, I know this is not about shotgun shooting unless you will accept that I am talking about my English Pointer Bird Dog who I do shoot over. I use my shotgun to do this, plus I am trying to keep you from getting scammed. If I was smart enough to add a picture, you would be doing belly laughs. Yep it's that funny.

The pool was advertised and being 6 feet by 10 feet. The ad shows a dog playing in a pool with room to spare and is billed as a folding pool. (The pool is well made) Well My wife got it in the mail yesterday and it came in a 8 by 10 inch box. I put it on my head and it could work as a rain hat. I have kept it to water my dogs in while hunting as long as they don't drink a too much; maybe one dog at a time will work. If you see this ad, it is a scam. My wife talked to Pay Pal about this and was told that she could get about $9.00 back but she would have to pay for the shipping to send it back. That was a little over $7.00. She paid around $40.00 for the pool plus shipping. When she showed me this pool, I just couldn't help from laughing so hard I couldn't breath. I had to sleep in my chair last night. oops I am still laughing but she now sees the humor in this deal. I have emailed and text all of my friends a picture of this thing.

You might have grounds for fraud,but it may or may not be worth the hassle........

One, that is what I told my wife. Like I mentioned, I will just keep the Bowl and use it to water my dog when hunting. I really have had a lot of fun with this. Now if this had been very expensive I would have taken it farther but, I doubt there is anything I could have done. I felt like it was worth a laugh and wanted to let people know that a scam like this was around.

During these days when everything in life is so down, a good laugh will help us all. :lol:

Mike, if Paypal is funded by your credit card instead of a bank account, you have other recourse. Submit a dispute to your CC company. They will be much more receptive to working with you on a fraud situation than Paypal. I recently had a similar experience (scam ad, never received the product) and Paypal was zero help, but my credit card gave me a refund immediately.

Luke,

Thank you for the information. I have decided to mark this up to life's lessons. No, I don't like a scam like this and if I were out a lot of money I would be after them. The problem is that I can't find them. I don't understand why with all of the computer wizards out there why can't these people come up with a way to find these crooks. Then we could cut off their fingers so they can't use a computer any more. I know that there is voice typing but once these crooks loose there fingers and thumbs, I would doubt that they would take a chance on loosing their tongues.

I also believe this is a great solution for rapist and child molesters. Now, I know this would be very harsh but It would put a stop of these pigs. This is only a commentary and is not a threat unless you mess with my wife, daughter or grand kids. My good nature wold STOP there. :evil:

I am on several hunting dog forums and facebook groups. Lots of people are getting scammed on this deal. This guy is getting rich!!
I would pursue the credit card refund.

Thanks D Bird. I couldn't bring myself to call you dirty so I did something better. D Bird is now my handle for you. LOL

I am glad that you mentioned this scam. That was the main reason I posted it. I don't want to see my fellow (bird) dog owners get ripped off.

Thanks,

Mike McAlpine
