Individuals who are looking to buy a pomeranian puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Familypoms4us.com in order to look legitimate.
They post adverts on community websites advertising puppys.

After you contact the scammers about the puppy, the scammers state that the puppy needs to be transferred to their area and that requires an upfront payment. The prefered payment system is Moneygram, Western Union or Walmart to Walmart but they will accept any form of payment including bitcoin, iTunes vounchers or bank transfer.
Do not think that you can trace them if they use bank transfer as they will often use a “mule” who is not aware they are part of a scam.The down payment is then sent via wire transfer. The scammers then ignore your calls and emails or will contact you and tell you that something else has come up and they need further payment for the delivery of the puppy.

These criminals are happy for you to give them your Credit Card details which they will later use to empty your account. Of course once you have given them your credit card details they will demand that you pay by wire transfer!

Familypoms4us.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Scam Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, a air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

  1. They got my niece for 510. dollars. After she sent it through Zelle, the next day they said she needed to send 978. for shipping. That’s when I got involved. I did a search on the IP address for the website and it said the page was made in Quebec Canada. I even did it down to the location and it looked like an alley.. They made a new email address for this website and tried contacting my niece again saying a puppy was still available. I wish there was something else I could do so she can get her money back. Oh and they claim to be living in Denver Colorado, Detroit Michigan, as well as San Jose California..
