Affordablebassethound.com are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a bassethound 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 “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 bassethound 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.

Affordablebassethound.com 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. I almost just bought a Silver Lab from this guy named Patrick Yancy, middle eastern voice. Would only take Zelle which raised flags to me. Zelle’s email is [email protected]. Googled his name and dog breeder and found this. Thank you for reaffirming that the gut always knows.

  2. Affordablebassethound.com is definitely a scam. I thought it was legit and was very excited to find a female puppy on the website named Nala. I asked many questions and of a course they told me what I wanted to hear. The name he used was Patrick Yancy from Cleveland, OH. He had a Middle Eastern accent. I sent a deposit to his email address [email protected] through Zelle. This was in May 14th, 4 days before it was reported a scam. I researched and their website wasn’t on a scamming list so I thought it was a respectful breeder but I was wrong. I finished paying for the dog but he gave me a different email to send the money to which was [email protected] and they wanted $700 and it would cover all costs of shipping. He offered for me to pick up the dog in person but I decided to go with shipping since it would of been an 11 hour drive for me. He sent me the email with shipping information and then I started getting flight information from a website called Swiftwavesdelivery. The emails came from [email protected]
    Then things went completely wrong. I got a call from a man that also had a middle eastern accent and he said his name was Robert Maison with swiftwavesdelivery. He wanted me to send him $1550 because the crate the dog was in wasn’t standard for the flight so I needed to rent a electronic temperature controlled crate but told me it would be fully refundable once the puppy arrives at my home. I told him I didn’t have any more money to send and then they emailed me back and said that now my puppy was in stress and needed a stress free shot and a insulin shot and it would be another $1550. I told them no. I called the number the seller gave me and then I realized I was speaking with the same man that tried to get money from me for a new crate and the shots. I confronted him and told him I knew he was the same person and he started back tracking and just kept saying my dog couldn’t be shipped without the $3100 extra fee. Then money came up missing out of my bank account. $1550 was sent to another name Courtney Njuto. I called and demanded they tell me where my puppy was. They said she was in Louisville KY at a swift waves facility. Asked for the phone number and address and he kept saying my dog couldn’t be picked up by me bcz it was in transit and he had booked for home delivery. I checked the Cleveland Airport and they didn’t even have a flight going to Louisville KY so that’s when I started piecing everything together. This person needs to be stopped because I am out $2200 on a dog that never existed. I have all of the text messages, emails and phone numbers they used to scam me. This person is stealing pictures of other peoples dogs, taking money from hard working people, using multiple phone numbers, and creating multiple websites to scam people out of money. They are scammers and hacking into accounts and taking money that I worked hard for.
