Phone number used:+18705015722
Names used: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below
Physical address used*: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below
*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

Other websites by the same scammer:
Championpuppyshop.com
downtownpuppyshop.com
starpuppyshop.com

Scammers current website: SkyPuppyShop.com

Downtownpuppyshop.com is a website that was created with the sole intention of scamming people. It is a duplicate of Championpuppyshop.com which is another scam.
This website claims to sell pets but in fact they charge you for a pet that they never deliver.
They then claim to deliver the pet using a Fraudulent Delivery company which is actually another website they set up which steals your money for charging for non existent delivery.
This is not a website review of Downtownpuppyshop.com as they do not offer a service. They are criminals.

Who registered Downtownpuppyshop.com?


Downtownpuppyshop.com was registered on November 22, 2017 with TUCOWS, INC. .

It was registered using the following details:

Name: Contact Privacy Inc. Customer 0149833588 (downtownpuppyshop.com@contactprivacy.com)
Address: 96 Mowat Ave,
Toronto,
ON,
M6K 3M1,
Canada

These details are correct as of today (November 25, 2017) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.
Downtownpuppyshop.com was registered using the email address downtownpuppyshop.com@contactprivacy.com.
It was registered and 3 days ago on November 22, 2017  and expires November 22, 2018.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started November 22, 2017 and does not plan to be using the website after November 22, 2018 as it has only a 1 year registration.

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

  9. They are now using the name or website of http://www.smartpuppyshop.com. The phone number is 870-501-5722. I called and was suspicious when they advised that a deposit could be paid using western union. I have heard that this is not a good practice. Also, there is no address for the facility. Another reason for my suspicion is they are selling teacup yorkies for $500 and this includes shipping. That is really too good to be true.

  10. I got a return email introducing himself as “Mark.” I called the number listed and an operator with a recording of a woman with an accent like Hispanic or Latino came on. I didn’t leave a message. Then a man returned my call with location being McGehee, AR showing on phone. I asked him a bunch of questions and he stumbled through the answers. That’s when it occurred to me this was possibly a scam.

  11. Downtownpuppyshop.com is definitely a scam.. I was just scammed by these same people for 650.00 on championpuppyshop.com.. They have the same puppies with the same names on both sites.. The sites are identical!!… When I inquired about a puppy on downtownpuppyshop.com I got the same identical response letter as I got from championpuppyshop.com.. It stated his name was Mark with an email address of DowntownPuppyShop@gmail.com…. Phone number was 870-501-5722..when I asked him if he could email me the puppies last veterinarian check so I could make sure the puppy was healthy he never responded back.
