*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 are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a poodle puppy online.
In the first email, the scammer will ask all the right questions, putting you through the motions to prove your suitability: how would we care for our puppy, how would we train him, how often would he be alone?

Then the fraudsters emails will get shorter and normally keep to sms messages. This is because the first email is a template where as you are now dealing with the actual scammer.

The “breeder” will ignore any questions about their affiliation with any clubs or organisations, and questions about the puppy’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The puppy will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new poodle they will eventually agree. It makes no difference to them if you travel for 4 hours because they are not at the address they claim to be. will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fraudulent 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. People please DO NOT make the same mistake I did and further investigate if you are looking to purchase an animal from a website that may look legit. These people have fake names, phone numbers and emails. Even 4-5 different websites that I discovered by doing a reverse image search like they do on the show Catfish! These people who claim to be Adonis and Mary Anelka, use Text Now phone numbers so you can’t track them down. They said they live in Toledo Ohio but once I paid the $500 for my toy poodle puppy. I received a website link and a tracking number contacted to a website called
    That person claimed to be James Harris.
    +1 (231) 489-7010 <—- this is Mary and Adonis’s fake phone number Petosky, MI
    ‭+1 (803) 497-9138‬ <—- this phone number is from Columbia, SC which is James from American Pet Movers also fake

  2. Emailed them through the website. Also a text.
    The phone number used was (707) 401-0563 .
    Price quoted $700 + shipping. I said I could not afford it at the time and price was lowered to $500.
    Copy of their email.
    Thanks again for the interest in our puppies

    They have been potty (paper)/home trained. UTD on shots and come with all health papers . These puppies have been raised in my home with regular visits from my children and grandchildren which has helped a great in socialising them. They love to be cuddled and I always make sure I give them the greatest attention. ​Attached to the email are updated recent pics of the puppies all pups are toy poodles ​And will be about 4.5lbs fully grown except for TRIXIE who will be 10lbs + ​ ​ I am in search of pet lovers who can love and care for these puppies like I do. Honestly I do not breed and sell poodles for a living​ . ​MY husband and I are retired and we do this to keep our retirement lives busy and the little profits we make goes​ to our sons education we had him at our retirement age ​( Benjamin)​​​ besides we do love puppies so so much . I have always been a good lover to poodle puppies. I adopted their parents some couple of years back and because everyone admired them so I decided to breed them. At the time I already noticed the prices of puppies were too much for some good and loving pet homes to afford so I breed and adopt out my puppies when need be.​ ​ Please get back for advice on the next step towards getting the puppy .
    ​ ​We are asking $550 for each puppy price already​ discounted and $​120 for shipping if need​ be , shipping normally takes some few hours of nonstresfull flight and most of the time we do overnight delivery and the puppy will be with you next day ​. We are located in ​​​CALIFORNIA However, ​ ​I will also like to know the following from you before we proceed.

    -Where about are you located? City and state??
    1….Are you a breeder?
    2. Have you been keeping puppy before or any order house pet?…
    3…Do you have kids at home?
    4…Are you going to keep them or give them to someone?

    I am located in Spokane WA from where these puppies will be coming from and i am giving them out for free adoption with a shipping fee of $500 each and $ 900 if you are taking two puppies Male and Female .this includes all facilities and this is all you are going to pay in other to have these puppies shipped to your location . If you think you can take great care of the puppies then feel free to come immediately and present yourself and pick them up for free , but if you can’t come over to pick them up, then i can help you arrange for a shipping service to your location if you can not make it up here to pick them up
    So, I truly need a good loving and caring home for this puppies because I just got transferred and I will have to stop my breeding program till we are fully settled.
