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 as they do not offer a service. They are criminals.

  1. Beware have been communicating with all these Scammers, these are some of the fraudulent phone numbers, first “the Google Subscriber you are calling is unavailable, please leave a message” this is because they only want to text.
    Can’t speak very good English because they are in another country. They use burner phones. Went under Classififed ads, here are just a few numbers, also in their texts they tend to misspell a lot of words. Don’t fall for was in the hospital, getting chemo, visiting son, etc. PLEASE BE SMART, THEY HAVE TAKEN MILLIONS FROM VULNERABLE PEOPLE ESPECIALLY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON. #503-389-3196 #347-974-0864. #757-379-2427 #440-744-5337 #254-203-5217. #662-403-4215 #443-502-0147 # 803-620-6178 # 539-302-3850 #720-735-7870 # 267-974-5456 # 717-487-4686 #724-974-8816
    These are just some numbers I have been communicating with, they don’t just claim pugs, French bull dog, they ask you which dog you are calling about, then they have 2 males 2 females. I am a pug owner, breed pugs for over 20 years, I just loss my Meggie Lou last month, would have been 17 years old. I too have been looking for a pug puppy. These are scammers! Go to ********** for legit breeders. May god bless and I hope I helped at least one person not loss their hard earned money. Merry Christmas

  2. Just found this site and my family is heartbroken. My girls were so excited to get their pug. I hadn’t sent any money yet, but did provide personal details like my name, address, cell phone #, etc. The email they are using is:

  3. ME TOO! Heart Broken, angry, embarrassed Actually more heart broken
    also lovemypug500

  4. I reported them to my local sheriffs department in Sanborn County with all the names they gave me. I am from South Dakota.

  5. I almost jumped n the “Scam Me” bus today to get 2 puppies on the Friday flight into SFO with free shipping… the name this guy us using is Johnson Willard and I have contracts that he wanted me to sign and emails with payment instructions indicating the address of this “home based business”. I am wondering if there is a law enforcement agency that i should talk to so that they can prosecute this fraudster. Anybody have any info on turning this scam in?

  6. We were all set and so excited. I felt uncomfortable with using Walmart cash transfer, but started to make it and the Walmart employees warned of dog scams. I found this site online and undid the transaction just before it was ready to be sent. Info sent and name change is below …

    We accept Walmart to Walmart or MoneyGram money order transfer for payment. We are a small family breeder and don’t take credit cards due to high merchant fees. Do your payment using my Wal-Mart/MoneyGram money transfer information below: (recommended). ..

    Address: 6826 Island Cir, Midland, TX 79707
    Phone #: (432) 203 3004
    Total Amount: $700.00

    Additional $50.00 for her microchip (recommended)
    Additional $50.00 for home delivery or otherwise you will have to pick her up at the airport.

    I wrote him back and told him I found his scam and he should rot in hell.

    • same address for the people that scammed me…different web address, different phone number, different people name, but same home address
      Leonel and Deborah Riggs
      6826 Island Cir, Midland Texas 79707
      They wanted Walmart money gram and when I told them that the lady at Walmart freaked me out, they said I could pay $300 and then the rest when I got the puppy, then after they said she was shipped – that she needed a $970 AC crate

  7. I too wish I had searched this sight before sending money. You get blinded by the adorable pug pictures and “heart warming” story of their so called “family.” DON’T FALL FOR IT!! I sent money for a pug and even the Walmart attendant asked me if I knew this person -Anthony Willard-1st red flag warning I should have heeded! After asking me for another $970.00 I knew it was a scam. Then my daughter showed me this sight.
    Life lesson learned. I sent them this scripture:
    “Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord, I will repay.” Romans 12:19

  8. I was within hours of ordering my first pug…then I thought how cheap the pup was going to be with free shipping…no one does that! I started researching more and came across this site. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OPENING MY EYES! I’m sad but still have my money. These people are creeps! I’m sorry for those of you who fell for this scam and thank you for this post to save us!

  9. I’m so sad, yet so grateful that I looked up this group before sending money. It made me suspicious when they said Walmart/MoneyGram accepted only.
    They contact was:

  10. He used the name Fabian Barnabe. Said it was going to ship Eastern animal Express. Called my local airport they said never heard of this company! They emailed me wanting more money for a special crate! Thank god I didn’t do it but still out the money for the pup they charged me for!

  11. I SURE WISH I WOULD OF FOUND THIS BEFORE I SENT THEM MONEY! TRULY SCUM OF THE EARTH PEOPLE! Lesson learned will be looking on this website before I do it again!

  12. I was lucky to suspect a scam and written and oral communication. The sob I talked with (the one having broken English said his name was Orian or Drian Compton living in Midland Texas. The phone was 432 203 3004. I checked and there is someone in Midland by that name. He said he was from France. His accent was really strange and the phone connection was no good. Maybe I was talking to someone in Panama! Thank you Pet Scams.

  13. Thank goodness I googled before paying out any cash, but the Email address I got from them was, so please take note of this also. There is a place in hell for people like this.

  14. They also have another phone number 432-203-3004. They requested that I send a $250 deposit via western union at Walgreens.

  15. Thank goodness i found this site. I was just hours away from sending funds to pay for 2 pups from these scam artists.. I had a few suspicions but was blinded by the thought of having 2 adorable pug puppies.. They sent me the same bill of sale as listed above only with a different receivers name.. The phone # they have listed leads to someone not from this country that speaks broken English..

  16. ALSO this is the phone number they use if you do a google search it is to an escort in Texas
    (432) 201-8820

  17. I was also almost scammed here is the information they sent me see below they wanted me to wire the funds i did an image search with google on the photo of the puppy we wanted and it leads to this REAL breeded [redacted]*

    We accept MoneyGram/Western Union transfer for payment. We are a small family breeder and don’t take credit cards due to high merchant fees plus we breed just twice a year which is not realistic for us to run the system.
    Do your payment using the following information via MoneyGram/Wal-Mart money transfer (recommended)

    Receiver’s Name: KENNETH WILLARD
    Address: 2502 W Kansas Ave,
    City: Midland,
    State: TX
