Fighting Pet Scams

Our Mission

Petscams.com was created with the purpose of cataloguing the latest websites built by scammers. We aim to cause as much disruption to their activities as possible.

Petscams.com deal only with "paid for" domains like ".com", ".net", etc etc. Scammers can spend a considerable time and effort to create and publicize these websites. We find that many people do not know how or who to complain to in order to shut them down.

For this reason, we do not deal with Facebook pages or Craigslist adverts as there are already well documented methods of shutting down these pages.
