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.

Is it safe to pay with Zelle for your pet? – exercise extreme caution!

Mark North - Jul 20, 2019

We are often asked if it is safe to pay with Zelle  and while it may be secure, it is dangerous to use Zelle to make payments to people you do not know. It has come to our attention that there are a growing number of scammers using Zelle to receive payment for non-delivery fraud, specifically pet scams.
