Friendly-giants.com are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a great dane 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 great dane 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.

Friendly-giants.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. We can verify this company is a complete scam. They are also using Covid as a way to extort extra money (health insurance, etc.).

  2. Sadly I got my hopes up and contacted this company. According to the text messages, $850 would pay for the pup and for them to fly it out to me. I knew something was off when the phone number used is an “Unknown Number” and the email being used is: [email protected] . They are claiming to be based in Vienna, VA and their communications are all too similar to the scams you see from Craigslist.
