Well, I think most of us know that stealing from people is wrong. Or, maybe these things used to happen often, but people didn't know who to contact. With the advent of the internet, news travels much faster and those that have done wrong get caught much quicker.

TO TARA: Please pay these people back before your time is out. The fines (and possible jail term) are more than you owe (3 times more for JUST the fines). It will be on your record for years to come and could hurt your chances of finding a good job. PLEASE do the right thing for, not only these people you own money to, but also do the right thing for your family. No one wants to see this end badly for anyone. I TRULY mean that!

And as imagined, and as is her M.O.... I received a letter from the Michigan Attorney General today stating that they had tried on 3 separate occasions to contact Tara Smith/Fawn River Mastiffs... and received no response.

 

Why am I not surprised. Apparently, playing the part of ostrich (head stuck in sand, ignoring what's coming) is all she knows.

 

Fine. Don't think this is over. Since it is apparent that going through proper business channels isn't getting us anywhere, next is criminal. And I have NO problem with doing that. Especially after taking a deposit from Ella for a breeding that NEVER EVEN HAPPENED! You wanna talk about fraud? That is beyond conscionable!

You can file a complaint with her local police agency for Larceny (criminal) and of course, also file the civil case for the amount of money you are out.

Is she on facebook or something?  I just went to her very pretty website.  I can't believe people can get away with this sort of thing.  How sad for the puppy buyers and stud owners too apparently.  I couldn't face myself if I treated people like this.

Well, there has finally been some resolution to this situation, at least on the puppy deposit front. It only took a couple months short of two years, but I did receive my deposit back. I've spoken to others who also had deposits that hadn't been refunded, and the four people that I know of have received their deposits back as well. Have no idea if the stud fee was paid yet or not, but it seems this is one episode we can put behind us, tempered with an awful lot of caution for anyone thinking of doing business with her in the future.

For anyone that is interested, it looks as though she has applied to be a member of MCOA. I think she has a few months left on her provisional status. My personal feeling is that if she truly has gotten her act together and is willing to abide by the COE of MCOA, maybe it's a good thing.
