  7. I want to thank you…. I was in the process of “purchasing” a puppy named Bella. When I came across this…… I can’t believe I got sucked in….

  8. Please post to Facebook & every other social media you can think of about this pet scam. I almost fell for this myself. Include any names & phone numbers & whatever details you can. It was actually on the news last night. DON’T send money by Western Union for a cheap deal on a pet. If it were a legitimate healthy pet it wouldn’t be cheap.

  9. I also have an emailed invoice from Mark @ Sunshine Puppy Shop. He is now using the following information which was NOT on the website:
    http://www.SunshinePuppyShop.com
    Email: sales@sunshinepuppyshop.com
    Phone: 325-480-4482
    Address: 6000 W Markham St, Little Rock, AR 72205

    I don’t trust this for one minute. He cannot afford to supply all the accessories that he says he will supply and sell a Maltese for $499. They are at least $1,200 anywhere else. This is a scam.

  10. I sent my 500.00 to a man name Mark Blair. By WesternUnion
    He received the $$$ then I received an email from Dennis Jackson for insurance to ship the puppy in the amount 950.00
    They said I would receive 98% back
    I went back to WesternUnion, got the $$$ sent. Called west WesternUnion and they would not sent the $$$ told me to go back and get the full amount back. They also told me that they have been having a lot of scams out of Pennsylvania. They will get the fist amount change there name and ask for more money… So I got back on the email and told the Mark Blair I change my mind and wanted my money back. Did not hear from him. Went back in and email address was gone. They got the money, I did not get the Dog and they did not get the extra money…..
    BIG!!!! Scam!!!!

  11. Hi, I was also the victim of this same person named Mark. He sold me a puppy and he never gave it to me. Then he told me that he was on vacation and asked to send the money to the care of a certain Albert Graham. This guy took my 500 dollars and I’ve never seen my dog. I would like to know how we can do to bring these guys to the police’s knowledge they are criminals. Is it possible to contact Western Union to notify them of what is happening?

  13. The area code only tells you where the person initially got the phone. They were good with their advertising. I was sold on buying a puppy but you have to be suspicious on almost everything these days. I hope they can track them down. All we can do is spread the word. They’re probably reading this. I don’t know how to put something out on the internet that will automatically pop up when somebody searches for puppies.

  14. The 325 area code is west texas (sweetwater). It’s voice over IP number which means these pieces of crap could be anywhere.

  15. My disabled mother was scammed by this man named Mark foster from this place. She sent the money western union when I call he hangs up on me! Police report has been filed I called western union they said nothing they can do.

  16. 2/2/2018 — I too contacted Summerpuppyshop.com for the purpose of buying a purebred puppy for only $500 (1st indicator it might be fraudulent). The address used in their email was 925 Freeport Road, Pittsburgh, PA which turned out to be a Alladin’s Restaurant according to Google. I called the restaurant number & they have received numerous calls but DO NOT sell puppies. The number given in their email was 325-480-4482. I called & there was no answer but soon got a call back from 1-267-317-4159. He was foreign & said ‘Mark’ would contact me. I have received several emails telling me to send money ONLY through Western Union (2nd indicator of fraud). That’s when I started searching for scams & this Pet Scam site popped up. Their website looks legitimate with pictures of cute puppies. We need to catch these people & shut them down.
