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. I have two found both today. Eurobloodline Danes and Guardians Great Danes. Never got an address but phone number for euro is 757-690-0809 and the one for Guardians is 915-223-1323. So upset! Didn’t give anyone any account information but of course filled out the **** on their website to get information from them…

  2. They are now using Eurobloodlinedanes.com, email address is [email protected] but the Zelle email is [email protected] with the phone number of 757-690-0809.
    I felt a little weird about this puppy/website from the start but decided to msg them anyway. Then when they told me I had to use Zelle, I was pretty sure this was a scam bc you can’t get your money back from Zelle if it is a scam. Happy I found this site.

  3. please be aware, they have now changed their website to Dane Universe. It is still a scam, do not give them your money. The same number has contacted me as listed above, ending in 0809.

  5. I got scammed. I contacted the Vienna Police Department and they said that the address I provided them has been used several times to scam customers. They scam me out of $900, they provided homemade videos, pics of small children with the pups, and the police dept says that they have done this to many people!

  6. Thank you so much. I almost just got scammed. Thank God I found this site before I sent these people money. They did the same as above. Asked the qustions then tried to get payment through Zelle. New phone number 757-690-0809. Still using the Vienna, VA location. When we asked about secure payment and not getting scammed they replied that they are God fearing christians that are not in this for the money as they could be asking a lot more for the puppies and getting it. We have their word it was not a scam and we would be getting our puppy.

  7. They used the same phone number with us. There were three of us that decided to purchase puppies together. We spoke to a person who identified himself as Deanthony Mathis. The previous owner on my transfer of ownership papers said Asaba Kingsley. Due to bad proofreading on their website, they referred to both Magnificent Danes and Royal Great Danes Paradise, the latter being a known scammer sure as well. The email I received from the shipper explaining the reason for the additional fees was the same, word for word ( minus mention of COVID) that they used in a corgi breeder scam site.

    We did not pay the additional fee. We also did not get refund as it was requested we use Zelle or overnight money order.

    Upon further research, the pictures for at least one of the other pups (“Aura”), had an address for a couple in Alberta on the dog tag. The shipper they used was Aramex, headquartered in Dubai and none of their shipping offices in the states are registered with the Secretary of State.

  8. Thanks for the heads up. we started texting them also. They did exactly as you explained above, Good thing we came across your site before we got too involved. They used are still using the same email [email protected] they used 757 276 1900 as a number this time.

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

  10. 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.
