Individuals who are looking to buy a shihtzu puppy online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Shihtzupuppies4us.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!

Shihtzupuppies4us.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. This Website tried to scam me. I was looking to purchase a puppy “Luna”. I was even sent 6 different pictures of Luna to my email and I Immediately fell in love with her. All of my contact with this suppose to be selling was through email. When asked to speak with them personal over the phone, there was always an excuse. Either they were at work and would call later or busy and I never heard from them. When asked about payment, they requested a wire transfer which set off a red flag. They told me they were located in Oklahoma but the bank information they sent me for the transfer was based in New York. Another red flag. I wasn’t wiring anything because that’s like giving a person cash. Then they said I could pay by Zelle. Wasn’t doing that either. I’m glad I was smart enough to point out a potential scammer and didn’t send them a dime. This website should be shutdown for misleading people. Please beware

  2. I was scammed by this website on 3/2/2021. I ordered “Bella” and paid a $350.00 down payment for her with the remainder to be paid when I picked her up in Hamilton, NJ. I was to fly to Philadelphia and drive to Hamilton where I would pay them the other $200.00 and transport her back to Texas.
    I paid the $350 via Zelle Pay. They received their money and I’ve not heard from them sense. I contacted Zelle Pay and they are, supposedly, working on retrieving my money. I also reported them to the FBI but could not locate the IP address for their website. If anyone can obtain that IP address, please forward it to the FBI Internet fraud department. This is a very slick operation. They sent me pictures (6) of the 12 week old puppy named “Bella”. She was adorable, but I’ve not heard one word from them since they got the money.
