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

Purebredpitbullhaven.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. These scammers almost got me.. i supposedly spoke with Paul who informed me that Tron was available. Tron would cost $500 and $119 to ship.. we called text and email back and forth. Even sent me some legitimate looking documents to sign. He asked me to pay either through Zelle or wire Western Union.. i text that I wasn’t familiar with Zelle so would choose wire through Western Union. He text back stating to now use Money Gram to a Recipient named Keshawn Eboa in Athens,OH 45701.. I pray these scammers are caught soon!! Paul and Hannah Crawford’s Phone number is (740) 518-5552, email:

      I actually found “Tron” online yesterday and confirm that ALL the information as far as phone numbers, names etc…were the SAME ones I dealt with. I almost made the same mistake, until my wife saw the same website and the same dog’s photo on different sites. I encourage you to report this to the https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx, which is the Internet Crimes division of the FBI.
      Click on the link I just put or simply search Internet Crimes Division.
      I am glad that neither of us got scammed by this SOB. I had relatives in Virginia that were going to go by “in person” and survey the dog, but “Paul”, who is going by a different last name on another site, disappeared and did not reply to me.

  3. I contacted this fraudulent company online. The sent over a fake legal contact for me to sign and send back. They then required me to send $619 through Zelle. Zelle would only let me send $500 at one time. The fraudulent company said that was okay I could pay the rest in cash when the puppy is delivered. They said they took the puppy to a third party carrier. The fraudulent carrier contacted me saying the dog crate wasn’t approved by the airline. They have crates that can be rented with a temporary insurance fee of $1069. It supposed to be refunded back at 100% once the puppy is delivered. At this point I contacted the seller because their site states the will provide an airline approve crate for the puppy to be delivered. They did not want to pay for it and told me I needed to pay for it. I told them it wasn’t my responsibility because it was not apart of the agreement. I asked them to give me a call they never did. I asked for a refund, they refused the refund. I then said for them to pay half of the fee and I pay the other half. The agreed but asked me to pay first. At this time is when I realized something wasn’t right. They treating me about being change for quarantine and abandonment fees for the puppy. I told them to go pick the puppy up. I really feel all of this is a scam because I ask the carrier to send me pictures of the puppy and proof of the half of payment the seller paid and they refused. In addition the email address I was given to make the $500 payment britneyg23.bg@gmail.com is no longer accessible on Zelle. Please shut them down

  4. I was recently in contact with these scammers. Like many others, I fell in love with tron. “Paul” reached out to me within minutes. I must say the emails & correspondence seemed legitimate. Some other scam sites you could easily tell. I asked for video and more recent photos but of course they couldn’t produce them. But after deeper digging, they’re definitely scammers. I am definitely so glad that I found this site & everyone else’s experiences. Do your research and beware!

  7. Today is May 17th, 2019. Have been looking for a puppy. Came across the site, Bullnose Pitbulls from Brownsville, Texas. I sent an email and it started. I sent the money and there were problems from the get go. They weren’t pushy or anything. But they asked a question that made me think about what I just did. I contracted Money Gram and cancelled the order and explained to them what I came across. The guy from Money Gram was awesome! He took down all the information and led me here. Everything I read about on this site is what happened to me. Thank god money gram was great about the help. Here is the name I was to send the money to, Karim Kenmore of Brownsville, Texas. Also the name Paul Crawford of Bullnose Pitbulls. Stay away!!!!! Report them.


    Today May 5th 2019 I emailed back and 4th with Paul to purchase Tron as many others I’m now learning. We were “planning” to fly him to us tomorrow he needed me to wire $ via western union and I called him out on the scam! I was blinded with bringing the cutie Tron home and thankfully saw the light before I sent $!!!
    Here is the type of email they see and the current conch info!

  9. Purebredpitbullhaven.com is a scam. Paul Crawford phone number (956)224-8303 is his number. Will take your money. Do not trust him.

  10. I was looking for a puppy and found the site I liked a puppy named tron and emailed them for more info. Paul Crawford messaged me in about an hour. We started talking money and I wanted to review the site and here I am. Thanks his name and number haven’t changed.

  11. They use a real pet shipping company to “ship” their “puppies” it is called IPATA. The website has a tab labeled “pet scams” and they give you a very long up to date and past dates of pet scammers if you press CTRL F a little search bar shows up on the top left of the page and when you type in their or someone you believe you’re scammed by it’ll direct you within the list if has been reported before. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS! Use your resources.
