The trouble with a purchase like a puppy is that the internet is the most common place to look.
No-one wants to support cruel breeding farms, and most legitimate breeders have websites and also advertise online.
Criminals take advantage of this by creating their own websites and paying for advertising using stolen credit cards.
These scammers have multiple websites which sell other puppys besides pugs. They normally go for the most popular breeds as they can find the most victims.
If you enquire about one of their puppys they will offer you huge discounts. They will even throw in the best puppy food for your new puppy!
Rogespugs.8b.io will claim to deliver the puppy using a Fake Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, veternary bills, medical insurance for your puppy as well as multiple other fees.

8b.io is an online service which offers free websites along with a free subdomain. The subdomain, “Rogespugs”, is the first part of the website and the domain is 8b.io.
The scammer created the website Rogespugs.8b.io. This is another red flag as it is very unprofessional for a genuine entity to use a subdomain instead of buying a domain.
