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

Octaviashihtzuhome.com 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. We found a cute Shih Tzu puppy from Octavia Shih Tzu Home 3926 Eastland Dr. , TX 77406. E-Mail [email protected]. They have done to us the same as they have dome to the person in the ad. Made is send a deposit of $400, half the price of the dog through Zelle, than asked us to take pictures of the transfer. Asked that we purchase a gift card for the delivery co, American Express, the one with the numbers on front. We purchased a visa with the numbers on back. They said that wouldn’t work. When we asked for a refund, they would only consider $200. They wanted us to use Pay Pal and make the final payment as a donation. As all this, they used 4 different people as the seller. Richad Caldwell. Then, we delt with a Robert Lee Edwards 111. Pay Pal person was Kenneth Karuga. Delivery agency was Express Delivery out of Texas, no name on that person. Not one used the name as the owner of the Co. Now they say the dog is being shipped and needed a special crate at the price of $1000-$2000 because the breeder provided the wrong crate and the dog would suffer harmful nose bleeds.

  2. this scammer Octavia shihtzu.com scammed me 850.00 She tried to get more money for shipping just like the article says. She had me get American Express. She had me take a picture of front of card only so I would think I would get the puppy and then she would get the payment. She managed to take the money right away. She is a thief. I tried to call number she sent at beginning but no answer.
    do not use this person. I am working with American express trying to get my money back and will know something next week. This all happened October 25, 21
