Transfer Money to United Arab Emirates from Canada

I tried transferring money to United Arab Emirates yesterday so that jet-a-pet carrier company could ship a puppy to me. Now I was called by Western Union the moment my money transfer was made. Only that because of security reasons my transfer was declined also the fact that I didn't know the person I was transferring money to they thought it to be a scam. Now I am convinced that this is not a scam. I have pictures of the puppy I was paying shipping for. And I have several emails from the person as well as an email from jet-a-pet carrier company.

I asked them to hold the puppy until Monday because banks are closed on weekends. I'm from Canada and have never transferred money to another country before. Any suggestions on how to make this transfer to United Arab Emirates from Canada?

Wire transfer. Email money transfer from RBC or CIBC or other similar Financial Institution.

Really? Are you really this naive? It's a scam, do not go to the bank, do not send any money.

http://www.petrelocation.com/blog/pet-t ... -thousands (and many other links, just use Google).

You don't need to get a puppy from abroad, there are thousands available here in Canada. Sorry to be so blunt, but there is no nice way of saying this.

My friend's friend got scammed for three thousand. His wife basically fell in love with the photos of the puppy. Waited at Pearson airport for a puppy that never came and was balling her eyes out.

Obvious scam, I hope you didn't give them any money yet.
Cancel everything, stop all communications with them.

Scam. Hope you haven't tried to send more money. You're lucky Western Union caught the first one.

As others and Western Union said, this is a scam, you should thanked the Western Union employee for stopping the payment.

Plenty of puppies available at minimal cost:

Well of course. A prince from UAE helped him indeed and now together they are in puppy business.
