    this happened to me when I was looking for Golden retriever.
    Same thing I have to move and give up the pups. It will cost
    x amount of dollars to fly them from Hawaii. Yadda yadda.
    They even gave me the vets name that certified them. I called
    that vet and they never heard of the person or the dogs.
    It is a scam all over the internet!
