*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party are advertising puppys for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a maltese 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 maltese 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. 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.

    After filling out the contact form on their website I received the following e-mail about an hour later. It was clear after I read the e-mail that they were a scam. They only accept payment through Zelle (who doesn't offer a payment protection plan) and they didn't send any other contact information. You can only speak to them through e-mail, you can only pay them through Zelle and then they say they will make delivery arrangements. See their e-mail below.

    It's nice reading from you about ARIA. ARIA is still available and ready to go. Our adoption fee is $820 which includes the shipping/flight fee, airline approved crate, foodstuff & paperwork. ARIA is 10 weeks old, she is sweet & happy, she is used to kids of all ages, cats & other animals. She is playful, affectionate, laid back, calm, healthy, loves to cuddle & snuggles. She has kind & gentle personality. ARIA will come potty/crate trained, well-socialized, vet checked, de-wormed, current on all shots, microchipped & with free 2 years health guarantee.

    -Before I let ARIA join your family, please answer all 8 questions below if you don't mind:

    We take payment using Zelle. To find out if your Bank is supported by Zelle, please visit and then click on Get Started then look for your bank's name on the list of banks listed on their website. If you don't see your bank, its means your bank is not supported by Zelle.

    (1). Is your bank supported by Zelle? Send me the name of your bank to check for you or visit

    (2). Is everybody in your house okay with a new puppy?

    (3). Who takes care of your dogs if needed when you are at work or out of town?

    (4). Do you have the $820 ready to pay for ARIA today?

    (5). Will ARIA be an indoor or outdoor dog?

    (6). Have you ever surrendered a pet to a shelter or given one away? If so, please explain in detail.

    (7). Are you involved in any pet store, commercial dog breeding operation, or getting ARIA for adoption for resale?

    (8). I will need the name of the nearest airport to you for shipping arrangements or send me your zip code to check.

    Is there any questions you would like to ask me about ARIA?

    Once payment for ARIA is received, I will remove her from our website, for other customers not to contact us about her and to begin delivery arrangement and paperwork with the airlines. You will receive her within 48 hours after receiving payment to start delivery arrangement and paperwork with the airlines.
