Friendshippuppies.com is a website that was created with the sole intention of scamming people.
This website claims to sell pets but in fact they charge you for a pet that they never deliver.
They then claim to deliver the pet using a Fraudulent Delivery company which is actually another website they set up which steals your money for charging for non existent delivery.
This is not a website review of Friendshippuppies.com as they do not offer a service. They are criminals.

Who registered Friendshippuppies.com?


Friendshippuppies.com was registered on January 28, 2018 with TUCOWS, INC. .

It was registered using the following details:

Name: Contact Privacy Inc. Customer 0150511569 (friendshippuppies.com@contactprivacy.com)
Address: 96 Mowat Ave,
Toronto,
ON,
M6K 3M1,
Canada

These details are correct as of today (February 20, 2018) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.
Friendshippuppies.com was registered using the email address friendshippuppies.com@contactprivacy.com.
It was registered and 23 days ago on January 28, 2018  and expires January 28, 2019.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started January 28, 2018 and does not plan to be using the website after January 28, 2019 as it has only a 1 year registration.

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

    • Hi Monica,
      I do have to be carful not to call a genuine company a scam so here goes.
      I do not believe that you were in contact with http://www.excelshipping.com/ as excelshipping.com does not pass the criteria for a scam website (I did check!)
      Very often scammers will use a website like excelshipping.com but create their own email address to appear to be the company. In this case they used the email address Excelpetshipping@gmail.com which has no connection to excelshipping.com.

  3. I did the purchase for a puppy that was supposed to get shipped today then get an email they want 1000 for insurance. Trying to call them with no success. The shipping company they seen to be using is excell. Seems like the website for the puppies even disappeared

    • They almost got me also, looking at those Tiny Darling Faces, Thank Goodness I have a nose like a blood hound, It happens one of the posts I read was about a Lady trying to buy a Boston Bull Terrier & posted the Invoice they sent her, her Invoice # and mine are exactly the same numbers. Also the Routing number for the bank In Texas Is the same as the Bank of America In Virginia. You would think a smart thief would know Bank Routing Numbers can be found online & verified to each Bank along with their addresses & locations. Very Sad I should have known finding the exact Puppy I wanted for less than I paid for my Morkie was unheard of..,….

  4. I found a beautiful tea cup puppy on friendshippuppies but when I looked at the pictures closely it seemed like cutouts placed over backgrounds. I started reading other puppy web sites and they informed me on how to pick out a scam. One was getting paid by Western Union, be ware. The other is not being able to see the parents of the pup. Friendship said they use breeders all over the United States and sell their puppies for them. They ask $499.00 for the puppy. Now the math doesn’t sound right when you read what comes with the purchase. It comes with a lifetime satisfaction guaranteed, health certificate, health guarantee, airline approved crate, ISO microchip, up to date on shots, free home delivery, food menu, play toys and treat, blanket, collar and leash. It didn’t sound like enough money for all of that. The information I found that might help you is http://www.FriendshipPuppies.com, Sales@friendshipPuppies.com, the name Mark, and phone 325-480-4482.

    • What exactly did Western Union say about this? Is this a usual way to send money for a pup or don’t they know who it’s going to? Is Cecilia the only person who didn’t get the puppy?
