*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party

Individuals who are looking to buy a yorkshire terrier puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Furryteacups.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!

Furryteacups.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Scam 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. DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT PURCHASE FROM FURRYTEACUPS.COM! I purchased Kieti and sent in payment of $599 instantly upon request. I immediately got a text from “the carrier” American Logistics stating I needed to send $1500 as a security deposit to use a temperature controlled kennel due to weather conditions. Mind you, furry teacups website states “FREE SHIPPING” American Logistics went as far as trying to get me to purchase bitcoins to pay for the “refundable fee” When I stopped responding via text, they stated they would call the police for abandonment and turn Kieti over to animal rescue. I’ve emailed, called and sent a refund request through Zelle. BTW Kieti is still for sale. No response! SCAM! SCAM! SCAM!

  2. The website is Furryteacups.com their phone number 608-999-8498 email address [email protected] when I attempted to make the payment the first Zelle payment they told me the Zelle email: [email protected] Name: Brandon Bank when that did not work they then told [email protected] ….
