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

Preciousmalteseyorkies.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. We need to work together to get this website shut down fast! To many people are being took advantage of.
    We thought we was buying a Maltese named Ellie sent them $750.00 through Western Union after their communication became very short with me.
    Told me the dog was on it’s way.
    Left it at that. When I questioned them they would not respond. I sent them a message asking for some sort of tracking information and they sent some.
    I tried to track the dog it said she had been shipped last month and was expected to arrive at my house that same day as I was trying to talk with them.
    I called the company that was “suppose” to be sending the dog about to us. They told me that I needed to pay $750.00 to rent a crate (refundable upon arrival of dog). $1,000.00 (if we wanted to buy one).
    They told me they had the animal and I would not be shipped until it was paid.
    They asked if I had received the email they sent me and I said no.
    The guy was being smart with me so, I hung up on him. He then texted my phone. Telling me that I needed to call back to get this resolved. I told him I was contacting the people we bought the animal off of because shipping was included in the price. He said ok.
    I then asked what email address he was trying to email. He asked for mine. He wouldn’t tell me. I told him he was not getting my email because he said he already had it. I told him I thought they was scammers along with the people that sold “the dog”.
    He got very defensive. I am reporting them to the BBB and anyone else I can report them too!
