Individuals who are looking to buy a cockerspaniel puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Friendlycockerspaniel.com in order to look legitimate.
They post adverts on community websites advertising puppys.

After you contact the scammers about the puppy, the scammers state that the puppy needs to be transferred to their area and that requires an upfront payment. The prefered payment system is Moneygram, Western Union or Walmart to Walmart but they will accept any form of payment including bitcoin, iTunes vounchers or bank transfer.
Do not think that you can trace them if they use bank transfer as they will often use a “mule” who is not aware they are part of a scam.The down payment is then sent via wire transfer. The scammers then ignore your calls and emails or will contact you and tell you that something else has come up and they need further payment for the delivery of the puppy.

These criminals are happy for you to give them your Credit Card details which they will later use to empty your account. Of course once you have given them your credit card details they will demand that you pay by wire transfer!

Friendlycockerspaniel.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Pet Delivery Service which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, pet delivery boxes, pet medication delivery for your puppy as well as multiple other fees. These scammers have even been known to charge for pet food delivery for a non existent pet!

  1. I have been alerted by prospective puppy buyers from this site that they are using my Dogs SA (Australia) member number to they can appear to be a legitimate breeder. One person was devastated after handing over an amount of money to secure a puppy. Once the money was sent they had no further contact from Friendlycockerspaniels. This site must be shut down to protect innocent people wanting to purchase a puppy

  2. These scammers have just developed a new website:
    labelcockerspaniel.com
    Contents are identical (apart from pictures of ‘available puppies’)
