Prideakitas.com are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a akita 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 “Scam 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 akita 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.

Prideakitas.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.

  2. I just found this article as well. Unfortunately, I’m experiencing the same thing. They are using google pay at jrnd5790@gmail.com and georgedasi57@gmail.com. Same address of 3312 Griggs Ave, Fort Worth Tx and phone 682-213-8085. I paid for the puppy, the crate and the Assurance fee. A grand total of $4397.

  3. This is so horrible and unfortunate.. had I found out about this article sooner I wouldn’t be in so many tears. The email they used to contact me is prideakitas@gmail.com and I was in contact with a “John Tresor” who gave me a phone number 682-213-8085 which is ALWAYS an answering machine. I have never once heard this “breeder”s voice. They sent me a contract, I filled it out, sent it back, they approved, my excitement way beyond belief, they wanted me to put down a reservation on a puppy, I agreed, they never marked the puppy as reserved on their website, after obtaining my hopes and money they told me that I could pick the puppy up at 3312 Griggs ave, Fort Worth TX 76119.
    They have different emails for their different payment methods. jrnd5790@gmail.com was the Google pay email and a Zelle email of Hilltops987@gmail.com

    I haven’t heard anything from them after sending the money… I’m supposed to go Sunday in the evening to pick up this “puppy” named “prince” I’m already expecting the worst.
