Individuals who are looking to buy a schnauzer puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called 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! 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. Scotschnauser lists puppies that are on other websites and when a question is asked I get disconnected . I asked person where his business is and what’s the address and he never texted me back. (405 765 1527)Kent schnauzer also lists puppies that are on other websites says they are from Oklahoma but has a Minnesota phone number (763 307 7416)

  2. Almost fell for the scam until I read this article. Looks like they have changed names. Terence c Akonzi Oklahoma City oklahoma. 808 491-0701. Same scam they even have website that you tell has been pasted from other sites. The dog they shoe was a white mini schnauzer with blue eyes. Posting on A2Z listings

  3. So glad this couple was shut down, they stole part of our name to promote their scam! They were stealing pictures of puppies from others and posting them on their website for sale…so you send your money and never get a pup! ‘Wow! We threatened them with legal action for using our name and we have had several people contact us getting us mixed up with this fake breeder.

    They have also used other names to commit the same fraud, they used to be called Majestic Schnauzers…so people always check out a breeder before you send any money, too many evil people out there!

    We are Paradise Valley Schnauzers and have been around for over 12 years, stand behind our pups 100% and have the highest quality dogs available….www paradisevalleyschnauzers com (Admin note: I have removed this as a url as I would not want your website connected to this scam – Paul)

  4. Hi ,
    Is Loyal Schnauzers a scam as well?
    loyal schnauzers []

  5. I notice that the website is now down. That is good. I was almost scammed by the same guy. Same tactics as described above.

  6. I too, was almost scammed by these people but I think I was a little too smart for them. I live in the same place these people claim to be. I first asked to see more pics of the puppy which took forever for them to send. When the picture was sent it looked like another dog, which he stated was only 1 week older than picture I saw on line. I then asked for an address, which he eventually sent, I questioned it being his real address. I then told him my boyfriend and I would come and see the puppy and bring the money, never heard for him again.

    Washington, D.C.

  7. We almost got scammed by this guy! Thanks to PayPal and our bank we lost no money. He gave me 2 email addresses and a phone number. He sounded like an India person and the connection was horrible. I have every thing in my email if it would help take this company out!
