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

Atelawesties.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 actually almost got scammed last night. If it wasn’t for a friend who checked for me. They wanted 300 dollars to hold puppy for me til August. Good thing I checked first. A bunch of thieves. How are they not caught ??? Awful terrible people in this world.

  2. 1-405-352-7569. This is the same phone number and scammer thief also operating as “The Best Westies” offering West Highland Terrier puppies. After payment you get an email telling you your puppy is with Royal Movers who will deliver your puppy same day but…you must provide a $1500 refundable(!) deposit for pet insurance to cover the pet during the trip. Yeah, sure! A complete heartless and cruel bunch of thieves. The contact calls himself “Jesse Leslie.” He speaks with an accent. Once you’ve caught on to the scam or ask probing questions he says “I’ll call you back,” or simply hangs up. Had people.

  3. Total Scam – Called 405-352-7569 – Thomas answered, heavy accent, difficult to understand. I asked when the puppies were born, how old are they, he hung up. Always investigate & crossreference sources. Shut them down

  4. 1 405-352-7569. Heres the guys number . The fake shipping company who answers the phone or calls you back had the same accent probally the same guy or related. Hopefully you read this before you get too excited about the addition to your family.
