Exclamation Puppyfind Scam ad alert!

A friend of mine just saw her kennel name, pictures of her dogs, website all advertised on puppyfind for an ad for a dog. The only problem is that she has not listed any dogs. The only difference is that they have placed a different phone number. http://www.puppyfind.com/view_listin...2526page%253D1
If any of you place ad there, please make sure that they are not being used for others than yourself. It's been reported but it's still a shame...

Very sad; incredible. I looked at the ad, and they were wanting only $450.00 for a female of obvious high quality. Crazy. . . also if they are trying to pass off those pictures as 9 week old puppies. . . well, obviously those pictures are 9 week old puppies.

Good catch; glad your friend spotted it. Hopefully no one has lost their money to these criminals yet.

I have sent an "interest" e-mail to them and am going to play scam the scammer...

However, the e-mail that I have received from them is NOT your typical "scamming e-mail" it wouldn't be very hard for a new puppy owner to get trapped into this pretty much "professional" e-mail. I'm wondering if they stole this e-mail from your friend, as well??

She has a elegant silky coat and the sweetness of their face makes them undeniably gorgeous!
Every of our puppys are de-wormed on a timely and appropriate schedule.We feel that it is necessary to de-worm puppies even if their fecal sample is negative, as most fecal testing is only about 75% accurate.Yorkies are just too small to have an intestinal parasite as they would get too sick too quick!

Hi folks! I would like to take the time to thank Theresa for posting this for us!...We have been working very hard to prevent anyone from losing any money or having their heart broke due to this scam!

We did contact Puppyfind Immediately and they have removed the ad and banned the user...The email used by the scammer was an email that they made to closely resemble our email addy..These scammers took the time to read several of our web pages and incorporate the info into their return email...

Thank you YT members for helping to protect the yorkie community!

This is unfortunately another example, of being very careful, and the buyer needing to beware--talk to the sellers, get a mailing address, double check everything.

Sorry this happened but it is again a reminder to all of us.

We also sent them an email and recieved the same email as you!..We went a step further and returned their email telling them we were interested in purchasing their girl...They sent us the following email!

----------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for your interest in our baby Girl,

I understand that you would like to visit our home, but my schedule time is very tight at the moment.

However, I have contacted my Delivery Agent (Mr. Glenn Noll) who is in charge of the delivery of our baby girl and I informed him to process your order and start the packaging of the shipment of your puppy to you Already we have several buyers for our baby girl but I can see that you have shown seriousness and interest to make paytment.

Please kindly visit any Western Union Agent around you and make payment to

Name: Glenn Noll
Location: Lebanon, Pennsylavania 17046
Total payment is $450.00

We charge $150 for delivery to your door step but If you decide to come over for the pick up yourself then you make only the $450 payment via Western Union Money Transfer.

Please kindly attach and email me a copy of the payment slip from the Westen Union agent that you made the payment from or email me in details the transfer information such as the MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number) Sender's Name? Sender's Location?

Your puppy will be delivered to your door step in 4 hours after payment is received.

Thank you

Shawna Carter.

Oh yea, definitely, but it's not like the "typical" scamming e-mails that you can hardly understand the "English."

I would definately be wary of anyone that only uses western union or money gram for payment. Also any time they will "get your package" ready as soon as they receive the payment is a red flag to me. I am sorry this happened to this breeder and it goes to show that we all need to keep an eye out for these losers that have nothing better to do that scam innocent people that are just wanting a little puppy to love.

I fell for this scam once myself. I was so anxious to get a cute little yorkie over the internet. Supposedly from Brooklyn, NY. I lost $900 and never heard from the guy again! The Western Union lady I talked to over the phone even warned me it might be a scam, but I didn't listen. So be very wary of anyone wanting you to use western union or money gram.
