Freshbullies.8b.io are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a pit bull 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 pit bull 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.

Freshbullies.8b.io 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.

What is 8b.io?

8b.io is an online service which offers free websites along with a free subdomain. The subdomain, “Freshbullies”, is the first part of the website and the domain is 8b.io.
The scammer created the website Freshbullies.8b.io. This is another red flag as it is very unprofessional for a genuine entity to use a subdomain instead of buying a domain.

  1. Scammed 1000 dollars by this website yesterday. They send you pictures of the parents, make it seem like you’re getting a really good deal on a purebred, make it seem like they are covering all shipping costs to you, call you to confirm the puppy is at the airport and send you a really convincing email from a delivery agency with an arrival time, then all of a sudden they call you acting like your puppy is stranded at the airport and everything is going wrong so you need to send them another 1500 dollars for a crate and extra shipping costs
