Happyteacuphome.com is not a puppy breeders website and this is not a review of Happyteacuphome.com. This is a warning.

They claims to sell puppys but the domain was actually created by criminals in order to defraud people wanting to buy a pomeranian.
Once you express interest in buying one of the puppys the scammer will send you a template email telling you a lot of details about the puppy as well as information on the best puppy food to use, and how you should take care of your new puppy.

They will even send you “proof” by showing you pictures they have stolen off the internet of pomeranian puppys.

Happyteacuphome.com will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fraudulent Delivery company.
The “delivery company” is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, an air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

  1. I found a dog off of this site and they said the dog would be 500 plus 120 to deliver within 48 hrs. I thought it odd that they claimed to be based out of VA when I searched specifically for breeders with in my state.They messaged me from 571.326.2195 and the email was Qualtyteacupsmansion@gmail.com
    The website looked sketchy due to the lack of address and lack of breeder name. Hope this info helps

  2. I had a feeling that this website was a scam, they are using a Google phone service and the $500 maltese puppy named Bella and a $175 shipping fee and they can have her delivered to my house the next day. I cant even get mail delivered from Houston to Dallas in 1 day. His name is Scott Mike, never trust anyone with 2 first names. This maybe the Taliban group. 7035946129 is the number that they are using out of Nokesville, VA. There has to be something that can be done.

  3. They have another site teacuppuppieshim.com.
    They say they are from Virginia Beach. The name of the man emailing me was Scott Mike. I should have realized something was up bc my brother in law had gone thru a romance scam and the girls all had 2 first names. Anyway. I was so excited but I was being cautious so yesterday I told them abt something I had read about buying puppies on line and asked them to do face time with the puppy…yep, you guessed it. I have never heard back from them. The email is: scomike043@gmail.com and the phone number they texted me from is: (770)966-4986. It’s really sad how they not only steal lots of money but I hate to hear about the children who are hurt and have to learn such a hard lesson so early in life.

  4. I figured it out quick that happyteacuphome.com was a scam when they asked to me send the money Western Union. Also I asked them to call me and a man did. He was a foreigner who spoke broken English. He was very hard to understand. Told me they were in Virginia Beach yet the number was from Maryland. I wanted to buy their adorable Maltese Bella that I have now found out they don’t even have and stole the picture of another dog. That would account for why he wouldn’t send me pictures of her in their home. $500 for the dog and $120 to ship her to me. They used the name Christine Campfield with the email address of Christinecampfield89@gmail.com
    These people need to be stopped!!!

  5. Definitely beware of these scammers. I wanted to purchase “Sophie” they pitched the $500 and $120 delivery to my door. I asked them to send me a picture of the dog next to a piece of paper with my name on it so I could verify the pics seem they didn’t seem real and of course their response was
    “We don’t accept such type for pic” they wanted all money wired western union. No more responses when I called them out on trying to scam.
    email and name they used Julie Gaboury (667)307-8617

  6. I was also pitched the same, 500.00 to purchase a teacup maltese 120.00 for delivery ar my doorstep in 48 hours. How can that be the puppy sophie was in Virginia & I live in Arizona. Glad my daughter checked for me to let me know.

  7. ALERT
    These people are still trying to scam selling puppies they tried scamming me for a maltese puppy named Bella thank god I’m always caustious and do heavy research before i do anything .
    Their email is graciousmaltesehome@gmail.com Website
    Gracious teacup maltese puppies home
    They are using many different emails,phone numbers , website name,but if you take a good look it all leads to the same website
    Can someone please stop these people shut their website down allready!!!

    Michele Barrington


    Adrianna Berrier
    Covina, CA
    But he says Jose, CA
    I had sent a request for info on the website. The next day I started getting conflicting information about “Jackie” from these two people! So I started checking and found the scam alert!
    Of course they acted shocked whn I questioned as to what was going on when I put it all together!!
    Such a shame!

  9. I had a similar experience with them. Told them I would pick the puppy up and give them cash. Never heard from them again. They are currently operating under Royal Teacup Maltese. Michele Barrington is the name they emailed me. Barringtonmichele46@gmail.com is the email address they used. Interesting because the name Michele Barrington is an actual name on AKC website. Same details from above. 450 for the dog, 120 fee for plane delivery. Dogs name was Jimmy…..I saw Jimmy on another website. So sad people do this to innocent, hard working people. I got suspicious when they told me I could only pay by money gram, or western union. Glad I listened to my inner voice.

  10. I’m glad I found these comments and this thread. I feel in love with two of their puppies one was Jackie so did my daughter and niece. Emails seemed suspicious after they told me $120 shipping and each dog was $450/500 then told me full amount was under $900. I knew it had to be a scam our singing suspicious. So I used handy dandy Google. Thank you for posting. The email contact they used barringtonmichele46@gmail.com Please beware and do not give them you’re hard earned money.

  11. Well, I thought it was too good to be true and yes it is, they reply to your request extremely fast, however upon speaking to them in text there are many red flags, e.g. 361 Corpus Cristi area code when they say they are from Virginia, secondly the grammar is poorly written or translated to google text. The length of the text message they sent and in the time frame sent was way to fast, an entire paragraph in less that 30 seconds, so they are obviously using copy and paste. I did a reverse image search and it seems to be stock google photos. They claim to be good Christians and repeated that claim several times. When you research their web site it comes back only being active for a few weeks and upon further review it appears to have been opened in Panama. They have no Google Reviews and asking for a money order payment only is not an option. This site has very similar and almost verbatim shipping and handling instructions as another and most likely same operator. Please be safe and do not fall for this scam. I have every message from them saved and if you are in contact with them I advise saving any and all messages.

    • Hi Mike – my compliments on your good quality research proving that this domain is fake. Just to put a few of the remaining pieces for your jigsaw, the reason why the scammers will reiterate their christian faith is that they come from Cameroon and religion is viewed as a sign of trustworthiness. The reason the site is showing as Panama is because they are using a simple WHOIS proxy which hides their registranr details, a common tactic used by Cameroonian pet scammers.

  12. Omg I knew they were scammers!!! First of all the Maltese puppy I liked was said to have been born in June, but her picture was taken under a Christmas tree. They were offering only $500 for a teacup Maltese with $120 shipping. They never gave me any contact info, only said they were in Virginia Beach. They told me I could only pay by Western Union and then I would receive the puppy in 48 hours at my doorstep. That’s when 100 percent knew it was a scam. They sent me more pictures of the puppy and I did a reverse picture look up on google and it turns out they stole the pictures from there. I did not give them one cent and I will do anything to help shut these pieces of s#it down!!! Their website is called Royal teacup Maltese and here is the web address

  14. I was just scammed by happyteacuphome.com also. Email he was using: royalteacupmaltese@gmail.com
    Phone #: ‭+1 (434) 234-0166‬
    He said the puppy was $500 and shipping was $120. Puppy’s name was “Jackie”. A number of things started raising red flags for me namely that I had to re-send the western union money under a different name because the first name he gave me didn’t go through. Thankfully I was able to get my money back. I am most angry because my 10 year old daughter was devastated. These people must be stopped.

  15. Please Do Not buy anything from these people I was dealing with Alan Carr ( at least that is what he said his name was). I was a victim on June 11, 2019. The Zelle Account for payment was Willie W. Griggs Jr. (whom he said was his business partner). I was interested in “Jackie” ($500) plus $120 to ship. I have a complete text message thread between myself and Allan Car which I plan to turn over to the police. Scammer email address used on zelle account: bronsondiamond09@gmail.com. Scammer text number: 571-392-9545, They claim to be located in Virginia Beach, VA.

  16. WOW! I knew these people were too good to be true! They claim that they would send me the puppy (Jackie) via a pet care traveler to California for $120.00. The puppy prices seemed really inexpensive so I pretty much knew it was a scam. Thank you all for sharing.

  17. They use the email pteacuppuppies@gmail.com & phone number 571 392 9545, claiming they are located in Virginia Beach, VA. Was more then happy to take money from me immediately but when asked to provide prove of the puppies via live video chat/call, they quickly changed their tone of voice, refused & told me i can spent more money to a pet shop because it’s more legit that way. Oh and they claim they are “from a Christian home and can’t stood so low to eat your hard earned working money”. When I took a pic of this website claiming they are criminals & scammers, he send a text back, reading “Devil”. Sure sounds like a SCAM, if it’s too good to be true, it’s a SCAM!!! Don’t be fooled, save your money!!

  18. Texted me from :
    +1 (571) 570-7005
    Sent me an email with info on “Jackie”

    I replied to the email
    I also sent a text asking for more pics of “Jackie” and the hours in which we could come meet the dog and adopt.

    No reply after that …

  19. Like everybody else I also got cheated by this company. They said they will ship my puppy to India and in the last minute they asked to pay 1500 for the crate. When I refused they said in 2 hours that puppy died because I refused to buy that crate and I am responsible for that and they threatened to drag me to court. I did not take this issue to court because they have a document which I did not sign and they are saying that they will use it against me. I warned them not to screw with me anymore. But if they did I will show them what I can do. I am making all the chats and emails into a file so that I have a strong proof. Let us all work together and eliminate this if I heard from them again. Let us unite👍🏻.

  20. I was just dealing with Mike Scott in regards to purchasing Oliver, however thank heavens ppl put the information online about his site being a scam. I felt uneasy so I looked into puppy scams and found out the truth.
    So happyteacuphome.com is still trying to steal money from ppl. They use the contact name Mike Scott. He will text you from a texting app and his email is mike.scottcutepups@gmail.com
    He did give a phone number to call when I requested one and it is (540)217-3083.
    He requested I send him a deposit of 350.00 when the pup was only 450.00 and asked for an e transfer to his email I provided above.
    Like the other complaints once I said I wanted to come to him and see the dog he had nothing more to say. Big time SCAM!

  21. I was getting ready to send my money via money gram as requested by Mike Scott, who contacted me via text. He’s using the following email and phone. 

    From: Mike Scott mike.scottcutepups@gmail.com

    He texted me via # +18472382466, and sent me pics of both Jason and Oliver (the web site happyteacuphome.com has them available).  He also requested that I send the money via money gram to the following person:

    Name—- Collines Dalees
    State——– Virginia
    City——– Richmond
    Zip code—— 23173
    Amount ……..$575

    I am glad that I read your review because they were getting ready to scam me. Thanks for your review on the scam alert. It helped.

  22. using phone number 224-208-8032 for a Teacup Maltese Puppy for $500.00 and they calim to live in Illinois. When I wanted to see the puppy before buying it I never heard from them again.

  23. Using the phone number 972 449 4772 when I asked about picking up the dog I got no more response – this is about Maltese Teacups – $500 plus plane ticket for handler all sent by Money Gram. SCAM!!!
