Smartcitypetshomesa.com are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a beagle 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 beagle 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.
Smartcitypetshomesa.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.
These details are correct as of today (November 6, 2021) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.
Smartcitypetshomesa.com was registered using the email address [email protected].
It was registered 10 days ago. on October 27, 2021 and expires October 27, 2022.
To look at it another way, this “company” only started October 27, 2021 and does not plan to be using the website after October 27, 2022 as it has only a 1 year registration.
