We have a warning about scammers tugging at your heartstrings.
Crooks are hooking you with pictures of cute, adorable, "just gotta have one" puppies online.
They take your money, and your info, and disappear before you get the pet.
Ohio's Attorney General is warning about an increasing number of these scams. But they're found all over the country, according to credit.com .
And since there's more emotion tied to a prospective pet, you've really got to protect yourself, and your money.
The website suggests you "never" pay for anything, including a pet, without seeing it in person.
