US Postal Money Orders - Sigh! Really Read This!!!
An alternative to using a credit or debit card, is going to the next closest US Post Office and buying a US Postal Money Order. I am really not happy using this, as our local mail lady is sloppy, lazy and quite frankly - doesn't give a d*mn about where she drops off the mail. I'VE COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS A LOT AGAIN AND AGAIN @ THE Post Office WITH NO LASTING CHANGES. I also don't like it because it usually takes several days to receive the payment or before I can verify it and that may influence my decision with whom to place a pup if I have several parties interested in it at the same time. THEREFORE...
Please be sure to send payments in the mail certified with a signature receipt required and ask for a tracking number, so we can both keep track on any delayed payments that may be lost in the mail. Since we are talking 3-5 days from the time I approve you for a puppy and the receipt of the money order, good communication is a must if you are choosing to go this way, so I know to keep an eye out for my mail lady, and also so I know that you are following through in a timely manner. If you simply slap a stamp on the envelope and drop it into the mail and I don't receive it here on my end [whether in a timely manner or not at all - read about my mail lady above] - this is on you. If it can't be traced when lost, that is your problem, not mine.
Be sure to make your Money Order out to me personally and mail to the following address:
Sabine Greene; 301 Victory Drive; Lyons, GA 30436
IMPORTANT!!! Please Note: US Postal Money Orders are the only type of Money Order I accept!!! Not Western Union Money Orders, Not Convenience Store Money Orders, Not Walmart Money Orders! USPS MO's only!
The Type of Payments I DO NO LONGER Accept...
NO PERSONAL CHECKS! They have a 30 day waiting period for out of state accounts, they often don't clear [or not clear!] until after the pup goes home, some bounce, costing me fees, trouble and aggravation on my end.
NO BANK CHECKS! They also take up to 30 days to clear before I find out if they are any good or not. Many scams going around with bank checks - let's not go there.
NO WESTERN UNION CHECKS. I'll accept a Western Union straight money transfer if you desire [but preferably not], but will decline their checks, as nobody will cash them out and they too will sit in my bank account for 30 days. Western Union themselves does not cash out their own checks - that should tell you something right there!
OTHER CONVENIENCE STORE/WALMART TYPE BANK CHECKS. For the same reasons - everything takes about 30 days to clear. Again - there are a number of fakes going around and I am not knowledgeable enough to tell if they are for real or not, and you ain't going to be happy if I sit on your pup for another month or so, before releasing it and neither will I be.
