Locanspoodles.com

If someone's advertising a bargain on a purebred pet, it's probably a scam. If they are linked to Locanspoodles.com then it IS a scam.

Locanspoodles.com is not a puppy breeders website and this is not a review of Locanspoodles.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 poodle.
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 poodle puppys.

Locanspoodles.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. Yes, I nearly became scammed also. I became suspicious when I noticed that the poodle did not have a poodle nose, & asked them if it was pure-breed. Liam replied that it was. I thought it strange that they had named the dog as usually the owner does that. I breed cocker spaniels & we do not talk like they did, e.g. “cute” etc. but emphasize breeding, colouring or vaccination. Also when I asked him to call me I have waited nearly three weeks for his call, in spite of sending him another email. Tonight I googled Liam Milner & found out it is really a SCAM. Very disappointing for the rest of us honest, genuine breeders.

  2. Thank you so much- I just received an email from Liam Milner in response to their ad which popped up. Also offered super cute puppy for $800 including shipping. So I went to check their website again and this page came up. It is scary how close I came to believing it was real.
    Thanks again.

  3. I also became curious as to whether this was a scam. Was enquiring about a poodle to purchase. Liam Milner responded via email offering $899 for a purebred including free shipping from Darwin for the dog if I had purchased within 7 days. Also provided photos of the dog. 50% deposit was also required upfront if collecting the dog in person which I found odd. The cheap price seemed too good to be true, so I googled the name and came across this information. I knew it was a scam. These type of dogs do not fetch for this cheap price.

  5. Thank you everyone for the above comments, I managed to save myself $800.. clearly this beast is without conscience.. we lost our beautiful poodle on Christmas Eve and as a result my other dog has gone into deep depression… hence we started to look for another companion for him
    Because of his insistence to deposit cash I googled his name on my pc and up came this site.. I then got him to provide me with a phone number that too was bogus.. it was a number for Perth not Darwin.. I went one step further and called the number but it wouldnt connect….
    Im forever grateful

  6. I came very close to getting ripped off but the deal seemed to good to be true so I went on google and found all this info. Thanks so much. They are now saying they’re in Darwin and the email address is licute6@gmail.com
    Name used is Liam Milner. Their webpage should be reported as it’s not fair.

  7. I was nearly scammed. I noticed another web site that was Locanschihuahuas.com also advertised the same method of the litters, they were all 12 weeks old, the owners names were Eliza and Nicholas, for poodles and Elisa and Liam for the chihuahuas. All the pups had different backgrounds in their photos but all were same age on both sites. The owner got a visit from a relative that brought a pup to her house when she was little and that is how she got started, but one web site was a poodle, and you can guess what the other pup was. I can understand people getting caught out, the pups are so cute. But the price was too good so I started checking.

  8. I enquired about a pup this eve but upon a little research found this page. I received an email from Liam Milner……licute6@gmail.com. I have also discovered a locans chihuahua page. Pretty much identical to the poodle page just for chihuahua. Oh and they are now charging $800……. but even still the extremely low price is what alerted me to a potential scam.

  11. Came very close to getting scammed, but it didn’t look right (no phone details), and then I noticed the domain name was new.

    Will be reporting to Google – as they are using paid Adwords. This lends credibility to them (they show up as first result)

  12. I have just been scammed by these creeps. I have lost $750 and the so-called puppy as my Christmas present from my husband. We are devastated.
