Individuals who are looking to buy a beagle puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Marcusbeaglepuppies.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!

Marcusbeaglepuppies.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.

  3. Hi Paul,

    I wanna know how I can help shut this website down. I have proof that this guy Marcus is a scammer. My mom found this website because she wanted to buy my grandpa a beagle. My grandpa lost my grandpa a year ago and hasn’t been the same ever sense so my mom decided to get him a beagle since he owned one before and was in love with it. My mom contacted Marcus from the website marcusbeaglepuppies.com and believed to be legit. She called him and when he answered he had a think accent that she could hardly understand him. We are a Christian family so we believed what he said. She unfortunately proceeded to send $700 through Zelle because that’s where he wanted it sent through. Luckily because my moms bank account didn’t let her send the full $700 all at once, due to the fact that she has a daily limit, she was only able to send $500 and was gonna send the other $200 the next day and then she found this review. She then called him and asked him If he was a scammer and he hung up on her but then called back to act offended because of the question and at the moment we thought maybe he’s not because he did call back another scammer who’s being called out on it would of just blocked us once he found out we knew, but then we thought about it and there was $200 that was still owed so that’s probably why he stayed in contact with us because he wanted the rest. He even made us sign a contract to show us that he was legit but when we received it the signature didn’t match the name. My mom then proceeded to tell him since he was getting snappy with her and his voice raising that we wanted our money back. He then said he would send us the puppy and once we had the puppy arrived that we could send him the $200 so we were happy. He said once he sent the puppy he would send me a tracking number and he promised we would have the puppy by 5:00pm. We never received a puppy and he never answered our texts or calls again.

  4. Yes they contacted me today and it was super sketchy from the start… first I continued to ask for me them to call me and didn’t until I committed to purchase, and then acted like I had never sent over a number in the first place. They asked me multiple questions to make me think they cared about the dogs well being and that it was going to go to a good environment. However, when I spoke to the person, they called from a google number and then had a horrible accent that I could barely understand. Before I went through with anything I searched their past letters and came up with nothing. Also, their unwillingness to use PayPal really threw me off. I then did a search on some of the pictures and found some of the same pictures online for past puppies from decent breeders. I hope that I can save others from paying these individuals as well. (I did not go through with any payments FYI)

    ** NOTE*** I also feel that this complaint was done by the same individual(s) to know when their site has been compromised… as it seems to have come in the same time that I first made contact…

    • Hi Steve, thank you for the information. It is very useful and will hopefully help more people not be scammed.
      These scammers can have up to 20 active websites at the same time. If their website is compromised they will simply use another.
