Individuals who are looking to buy a french bulldog puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Nicoleteacups.net 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!

Nicoleteacups.net will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fraudulent 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. Hello,
    I’m not sure if this is all linked, but I emailed someone at [email protected] I did get a response, but honestly I thought I requested about a different named puppy. My head is spinning from look at so many websites. However, since my day has consisted of what all seems to be scams! This person sent me a response along with picture. I did a image search on a few of the pictures sent. One of the images did come back linking to a couple of websites. One couldn’t be found for whatever reason. The second website is for the nicoleteacups.net At this point I feel like looking into other breeds! I can’t believe how many people our out for money. Luckily I dont fall for things easily. Just sad for us people that truly just want a fur baby.

  4. I was scammed by these people also. Originally it was not listed as Nicole’s.
    It was listed as bestfrenchpuppies.com
    They said they were located in Nashville TN.
    Phone. 615.229.5015
    Email. [email protected]

    The more I researched it, it got clearer that they were fake.
    Like I said. They really got me. I inquired on a puppy named Wale. They contacted me and everything seemed to be going well. They answered all my questions and sent other pictures of him. They said he was $750 with a $240 nanny/ transportation fee. I stupidly paid them the $990. They kept assuring me that everything was ok and that I would get his transportation papers, contract papers and sign for his ownership transfer. But I kept requesting them and I always got the response that he would send them to me when they were ready.
    I was beginning to question everything and got really uncomfortable. I started going through their website and cross referencing everything. Then I found this site. I read the comments and matched names of puppies on this site to ones in the comments, like Bella. I also found that Nicole’s “about us” matched with Best French website “about us” info word for word and same posted pics of puppies on both sites. So I requested my money back and that’s when the communication stopped. They stopped answering their phone and responding to anything I sent them. I feel so stupid.

  5. I Just got an email about Bella! People if they don’t take PayPal do not give them any money. If it sounds to go to be true it is! SCAMMERS ALERT!!!

  6. Their number now is 1-840-256-1944. I asked about Bella they want $700 but I wouldn’t give money till I signed contract they would never call me back or text anything. Now they won’t answer when I call please don’t if it’s to good to be true then it’s probably not. I gave them my name address and phone number but no bank info

  7. This just happened to me yesterday. I am so upset and discouraged. The puppy was 750 that I paid them they asked me to pay anther 1200 dollar for the puppies crate. Then they asked me to pay any hero 1300 for travel insurance. I have spent my saving on this dog. They never told me about the spending on a crate and insurance for the puppy. I have been trying to get in contact with them and now it’s like they disappeared. I lost all my money and I’m trying to get it back. Can someone help with with this? Did they return your money?

  16. I found a site that offered French bull dogs at 50% off this weekend, and loved the puppy I saw so I inquired. I was sent a text message from someone at (513) 278-7193, which immed raised a red flag, because this is an Ohio area code, and they said they were located in Texas. I then rec’d An email from [email protected] when I requested additional pictures and info. The pics I received were of a puppy on Instagram. 11photos of a dog named Lou Lou, so obviously not the dog they said they had, which was supposedly named Bella. When I asked why these pics were of a dog on Instagram….shockingly I’ve had no response!!! So yes this IS a scam site! They keep changing email address, phone number and physical address!!!

    She was selling “Mini” french bulldogs at 50% off for the 4th of July weekend. Against my better judgment, I engaged this individual and there were so many RED flags it was almost comical.

    1. She used only 2 photos and denied requests for photos not already posted on the scam site.
    2. She wanted to get rid of the notional puppy ASAP.
    3. Would not video chat.
    4. Would not take a picture of the puppy with a handwritten sign and said “this is not a scam”.
    5. Based on the amount of grammatical errors in our conversation, it seemed like a computer was responding (i.e. talk text typing).
