Good Morning Fosters and Volunteers, sadly a "so-called" Reverend Armando Hilton is running an illegal scam and scamming potential Puppy Buyers out of deposit money and hiding behind Tiny Paws. I was notified by 2 of the victims in the Greensboro, North Carolina area who sent deposit money via Western Union to the Reverend in Orlando, Florida and after receipt of money, he congratulated them, blocked their phone number and placed mine within his e-mails for his disgruntled victims to contact me asking when they were receiving their calls to pick-up their promised Yorkie Pups.
In addition one of the victims became suspicious of his legitacy and his comment was "we are a Christian run rescue and at anytime, please look up Tiny Paws Small Dog Rescue, Inc BBB report" and pasted our A+ rating within his e-mail. Needless to say, I was livid and contacted our Attorney immediately and we are working with 3 different police departments, BBB, and may even be interviewed by a news station per the request of BBB to try and track this awful, deceitful man down along with his partner in crime who resides in New Jersey. PLEASE BEWARE if you see Reverend Armando Hilton on any Tiny Paws correspondence to contact me immediately.
In addition, note that we have been receiving the GOFUNDME donations and so appreciate your donations and this situation will not affect our fundraising efforts or receipt of them at all. We must ensure that if questioned about where to donate that they access our GOFUNDME site through link provided on FB and website, and/or PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
