Who are Frenchbullrehoming.com?

http://www.frenchbullrehoming.com/, http://Frenchbullrehoming.com, www.Frenchbullrehoming.com

Email used: puppiesrehoming@outlook.com
Phone number used: 0480023522
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

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

Frenchbullrehoming.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 was just ripped off by Mark French too! Paid $1400.
    I asked for invoice before I made payment & also said I would pay for pup in two instalments. He sent an invoice with address ABN contact details etc it all look totally fine so I paid the $1400 agreeing to pay another $600 on receiving pup.
    But then I received a txt saying I had to contact (by email) the shipment company as they had emailed me…
    Turns out the transport/freight wanted a further $2000 for insurance & crate hire, saying they would refund $1900 on delivery. I & kids were so excited to think we were getting this puppy. So I paid it, but I had asked them also for an invoice & didn’t receive one. I txt frenchbullrehoming to ask why he had said shipment was included when it wasn’t? He replied I should get a full refund. He said I would receive the pup on Thursday, then it was on Friday & the shippers EZpetexpress said they would deliver on weekend!! That’s what got me thinking… when have delivery people ever have a refund when delivering A product. So I looked online & just knew I’d been scammed! Phoned the bank luckily I got my $2000 back! It it’s gonna take 8 weeks to try & get the $1400 back of which I doubt will happen!! Watch out everyone for these horrid nasty people they are well set up with not only fake dog rehoming business but also shipment websites too!

  2. I have a friend that has fallen for this.
    Things I’m worried about.
    She sent her drivers licence “for the microchip”, so identity theft is also a worry.
    She also sent $2350 via bank transfer.
    She never spoke to anyone. The phone number goes to a robot voicemail and reply was via text.
    A Google of the exact phrases used in their “review” page resolves to a whole bunch of puppy websites all around the world.

    • Hi Thunderbox,
      There are several ways that your friends ID can now be used.
      Firstly, the scammer will probably use your friends name to scam other people. The next website they build will be registered using your friends name.
      If a prospective victim is suspicious, the scammer can then send the copy of your friends driving licence to “prove” they are legitimate.
      The scammer will need much more information to open a bank account etc so your friend should review ALL information she sent to the scammer no matter how insignificant it may seem to be.
      Scammers often direct victims to a “payment” page so they can pay with Credit Card. The “payment” page is a simple web form to steal the Credit Card information. Once you submit your credit card info, the form would reply “Your payment has been declined, please pay by another option”.
      They would now have Credit card info as well as drivers licence.
      She will need to continually check her credit with a credit agency.

    • Hi Lee, This is not technically true. You should report the “domain” and not the “website”. The domain “frenchbullrehoming.com” can be transferred to different hosting within minutes if the hosting is shut down.
      Namecheap is notorious for shirking their responsibilities and allowing scammers to keep their domains while they move the hosting from one provider to another.
      For the victims, the website is always the same, no matter how many times it is shut down.

  4. Wish I’d found this site sooner. Only found it by searching for the phone number as searching my “frenchbullrehoming.com does not bring up any alerts. Checked Scamwatch etc as I had a funny dealing. Even reports a valid ABN. I’ve lost $2350 and he is using name “Mark French” but slipped and wrote “Randy Mark”.

    Feeling silly as there are warning signs but I fear others will be caught by this scammer. Do not be fooled by ABN, Westpac account. He says he is in western tassie Redpar. Next phase he wants a front/back copy of licence to steal your identify. Real low bastards.

  6. They ripped us off for $2350 for the female puppy Sasha, eveosent is an invoice before payment. Now nothing even contacted AFP and SA police along with our bank and there’s which was Ing bank and neither of them classed it as a scam nor fraud as we sent money to a valid account! Two now and no help from banks or AFP. No wonder these people keep going.

  7. Almost got scammed, seemed too good to be true. I asked if I could video chat with them so I could see the dog but apparently Randy Mark isnt ‘tech savvey’ even though he built a whole website. I also looked at the reviews which all seemed to be posted in the last 2 months. People are terrible. I so badly wanted the pup I enquiered about and now I am just left feeling like a fool for getting my hopes up.

    • You did a great job asking to video them – One of the best ways to prove its a scam is that the criminals that run these websites do not like it when they are asked for a video with the puppy!
