*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a dachshund puppy online.
In the first email, the scammer will ask all the right questions, putting you through the motions to prove your suitability: how would we care for our puppy, how would we train him, how often would he be alone?

Then the fraudsters emails will get shorter and normally keep to sms messages. This is because the first email is a template where as you are now dealing with the actual scammer.

The “Scam Breeder” will ignore any questions about their affiliation with any clubs or organisations, and questions about the puppy’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The puppy will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new dachshund they will eventually agree. It makes no difference to them if you travel for 4 hours because they are not at the address they claim to be.

Advertisement 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. OMG! I was about to pay them and thought why don’t I just look it real quick. Thank you for saving me so much time and effort. The only thing that made me wonder was the fact their emails kept going to my junk folder!

  2. I have also been exchanging email with “Richardson Howard”. I asked for pictures just because I was anxious to see the puppy. They also sent me a video of what was going to be my dog but the dog looked different. It was darker. Their emails looked a little weird but I thought it was my phone not displaying it properly. Following info was included in their email:
    Dachshund Royalty
    4105 Gladstone Street Duluth, MN 20230 – United States of America
    T: +12184096017

  3. This place is still up and running as a scam. Almost fell for it but when they asked to be paid in walmart gift cards, i thought wait a minute…who does that.

  4. The same scam is being done at the website dachshund — same names and numbers. The link to their website in the email they sent my wife bounced, so I typed in the actual hyperlink url and it was registered one day before

  5. They just got me to give them $700, then called me the next day as a shipping company asking for $1500 for shipping costs. Unbelievable!

  6. I also inquired about a puppy and parents. Was told parents not on site. When I asked for past buyers I was given and address from California but the phone number from the website. REDFLAG!!!! SCAMMERS!!!!!

  7. Same here, almost fell for it also. Something made me do some research and found this page. Thank you…thank you…..thank you!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I have been exchanging emails with a “Richardson Howard” and almost fell for the scam until a red flag popped up. When I asked for a picture of the Dam, they provided a generic photo taken from the internet of a Chocolate and Tan dapple puppy. Their answers to my questions felt scripted as well.
