Setup:

A light source emits a series of pulses equally distanced from one another. A stationary observer (receiver) measures the frequency:

The observer starts moving with constant speed towards the light source and measures the frequency again:

Premise 1: The moving observer measures the frequency to be higher.

Premise 2: The formula

(measured frequency) = (speed of the pulses relative to the observer)/(distance between the pulses)

is correct.

Conclusion: The speed of the pulses relative to the moving observer is higher than relative to the stationary observer, in violation of Einstein's relativity.

Raw Message
The argument saying that, since the frequency varies for the moving observer, the speed of light relative to him varies as well, is inherent in the correct interpretation of the Doppler effect and cannot be removed - Einsteinians can only camouflage it. Yet sometimes the camouflage is imperfect and Einsteinians unconsciously repudiate Einstein's relativity:

Albert Einstein Institute: "In this particular animation

which has the receiver moving towards the source at one third the speed of the pulses themselves, four pulses are received in the time it takes the source to emit three pulses." http://www.einstein-online.info/spotlights/doppler

The conclusion

"Four pulses are received in the time it takes the source to emit three pulses"

is equivalent to

"The speed of the pulses relative to the moving observer is higher than relative to the source"

which is fatal for Einstein's relativity of course.
