VANISHING PUPPY PAYMENTS
The latest version of the fake website scam has been exposed, and is targetting those looking to buy pedigree puppies.
The usual con trick applies. You go onto the internet, see a website offering just the nice cute puppy that you want, so you send in the payment by bank transfer as instructed.
We all know the rest. The puppy does not arrive, and in fact never existed, and your money has vanished into the ever deepening pockets of the scammers.
BASIC RULE ON THE INTERNET:
NEVER PAY BY BANK TRANSFER
BASIC RULES OF BUYING A PUPPY:
ALWAYS SEE THE PUPPY YOURSELF. WITH IT’S PARENTS AT THE BREEDERS KENNELS.
