Proving once again that no good deed goes unpunished, a woman claiming to be the owner of a lost dog actually turned out to be a scam artist after she responded to a Craigslist ad posted by the person who found the wayward animal.
Michael Friend found the dog in Nassau County, New York and posted an ad on Craigslist seeking the animal’s owner.
On February 17, 2011, a woman contacted Friend saying the dog was hers. The two met and the woman took the dog, police said.
Later however, another woman, Yvette Siebert, who turned out to be the rightful owner, came forward to claim the dog named Lilly.
Detectives released photos of the woman who is suspected of taking the dog. If you recognize the woman in the photo, you are asked to please call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477.
