TIPS ON DETERMINING IF YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED:


Most pet scams begin with a buyer searching online for free / cheap pets or puppies for sale.

Puppy Finder, Craigslist, a Private Classified Add and everyone's favorite Facebook. There is no such thing as a free puppy! Be aware of the normal cost of a legitimate puppy and ask yourself why are they selling it for way less!! WHY? Because it's not real, there is no puppy and it's all about you sending them money.


​Fraudulent sellers are oftentimes outside of the U.S. and may be hiding their phone number by only communicating by email. If they do give you a phone number and then during the 'negotiating' the number changes, this is a huge red flag! If they threaten you into sending more money, Red Flag!


Sometimes, the seller will offer to give the pet for free or at a discounted price and they almost always say they are only giving the pet away because their child passed away, or that they moved for a new job and cannot provide enough attention for the animal due to work hours, or their new house won’t allow pets etc...SCAM!


Once committed to the sale, they send you paperwork for delivery but requesting additional money. The scammer might then say that the airline is requiring a temperature controlled crate (there is no such thing!), shipping insurance (you cannot insure a live pet), additional paperwork or shots, etc. Sometimes, they even set up additional email accounts, websites, etc to look like an airline or shipping company. This is all part of the scam!! They will even try to convince you that if you do not send them additional money they will report you for animal abandonment to the authorities.
