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

Owenspughome.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.

  2. So stupid me believed it, I was leery from the start because he was really pushy to send the dog and so I sent him the money because yes I wanted a puppy. Next day I go to the airport (an hour long drive) aaannnnddd “hey check your email” and my puppy needed an ac controlled crate. How great. I was stupid but stopped once they said he needed vaccines. Used the same name: Owen. I tracked the ip on the emails and it came from Kansas but said he was from Pittsburgh, PA. I should’ve stopped at the $560.

  3. Sadly they just got me as well for 560.00 sent it through moneygram to wilson Harrison in Minnesota Minneapolis.

    I was contacted yesterday and was told that my pug puppy needed a electric thermal crate and it will cost me 40.00 to rent but I had to pay a caution fee of 700.00 which would be returned to upon delivery. The person owen that I have been in contact with all week advise me to let him know when I paid the 700.00 and show him pictures showing him that I did receive my puppy. I reached out to Pacific pet relocators received no answer. Something told me to call them last night at 11:30pm and they ass answered the phone . It was a foreign man who asked what did I want. I advised that someone called me from the number 218 331 4240 so he asked do I have a puppy there what’s the tracking number. I provided that then hung up . I call back 3 times didnt answer. Then he called back and I told him he hung up said I was lying and it was a connect issue. I asked him what was going on with my puppy and he told me I needed to read my email. I told him I dont have access to it at the moment and he refused to tell me anything . After a few minutes back and forth he told me f**k me and disconnect the call. Call back and now I’m blocked. My friend got on they website to inquire about the pug I wanted which name was randy , he asked him this morning is he still available and he was told yes and I have provided all the same instructions as well I believe . Lesson learned definitely.

  4. I should of known better, this was the one time I ever let my guard down, but this loser Owen sold me a pug for 500, dummy me sent him 500 Walmart to Walmart, then once I snapshot the receipt he told me Saturday night, I’ll text you with the details of travel at 8:30, then he said at 10:00am give me an hour, then two hours later he tells me look at my email, the so called travel company he uses has to use a different crate, so send me 740.00, money gram, but once you get the dog I’ll reimburse you, I new then I was taken for 500.00, but the worst of it all I had to tell my two kids it was not going to happen and they were disappointed, but we have a pug from PuppySpot, their legit, try them.
