Individuals who are looking to buy a french bulldog puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Nicoleteacups.net 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!

Nicoleteacups.net 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.

    She was selling “Mini” french bulldogs at 50% off for the 4th of July weekend. Against my better judgment, I engaged this individual and there were so many RED flags it was almost comical.

    1. She used only 2 photos and denied requests for photos not already posted on the scam site.
    2. She wanted to get rid of the notional puppy ASAP.
    3. Would not video chat.
    4. Would not take a picture of the puppy with a handwritten sign and said “this is not a scam”.
    5. Based on the amount of grammatical errors in our conversation, it seemed like a computer was responding (i.e. talk text typing).
