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

What is a .GA domain?
DOT.GA is an online service which offers free domains. This free service has some issues though as you can only register a free domain for a year and you risk someone else taking it over when it expires. For this reason reputable companies would never register a free domain with DOT.GA. It is a very attractive service to scammers because there is no record of payment with a free domain.
Shutting down the website at Rotterburypaws.ga is not difficult. There are probably hundreds of domains registered daily with DOT.ga and the company cannot be expected to monitor all of them for fraudulent activity.
