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

Masonshepherds.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. Hi, we were scammed today. Supposed to meet and get “cliff” today through mason shepherds. The address they gave us was
    1951 Quail Rd
    Concordia, KS 66901
    United States
    Same phone number you already have. They also gave us two different emails: [email protected]
    [email protected]
    They requested payment through Zelle or cash app. We sent half the payment through Zelle. Also found out that “cliff” has his own Instagram account with over 17k followers. He is full grown now. He was 3months old in March 2019.
    This just sucks so much. Hope they get shut down and no one else gets scammed.
