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

  1. This same phone number is now listed on Magnum Danes and iyvanna Danes out of Germantown TN. I noticed both websites had pictures of same pups with different names.

    • Hi Heather, Can you let us know the domain name for Magnum Danes and iyvanna Danes?

  2. My wife spoke with them morning and they gave her the exact line that y’all reference. She offered to drive down tomarrow with cash and they said that she’d have to send $400 deposit today. Fortunately she didn’t bite as she’s been around the block with Dane breeders, or supposed Dane breeders for the past 34 years. They’re still claiming residence in Ft. Lauderdale, and are using email, and phone # (754) 237-3261. Thanks for posting the info!!

  3. @ Paul Brandy: go daddy owns the domain, I sent an abuse email to them; however, it appears that the website is being updated from the “Z time zone” so these people are likely operating out of Western Africa.

  4. Lasam Great Danes is the newest site that the scumbag running Tomma and Ralph Great Danes was running.

    • It is over a month old. I feel embarrassed that I missed it! We will have a warning for it by the morning.

  5. I lost money with Ralph Great Danes too… filed complaints with everyone I could think to and no one could do anything. Have not heard from my FBI complaint but this site has been suspended as of now. I hope that someone can find these scumbags.

  6. I am a recent victim and sent $$$. Unfortunately, I didn’t know anything about this stuff prior to making payment. Filed a report with FBI, who are well aware of these folks and also into IT….will find these F$&@) if it’s the last thing I do. Shawn O.

  7. Yes, they are Ralph Great Danes now. Located in ‘Ft. Lauderdale.’ I am glad i stumbled upon thus page before I got sucked in.

  8. I am pretty sure “Schuster Great Danes” is their new page. I just got shady claims from them too and started digging. Tomma is mentioned in their site disclaimer. They are saying they are in North Dakota now.

    I just talked to the same person Lawrence Ndip. The email address they used to contact me was Lawrencendip@
    Phone # 813-331-6906
    He told me they were based in Ohio.

  10. I was just in contact with these people this week. I was trying to buy a puppy. I sent them my information and told them which puppy I wanted and I was sent a tex from this number 18133316906, telling me he sent me an email about the puppy and his name was Lawrence. with an email address of lawrenceNdip he told me he was in tampa. so I told him I will drive to get the puppy on Saturday cause I live in florida. and that is when all the communication stopped. He insisted he wanted my name address and number to transfer the paper work to me. and he already had that information. 1/26/19
