I went online looking for a Maltese’s puppy. I was instructed to send $500.00 via Walmart to Walmart/Moneygram. Thank goodness the employees I spoke with were up on Scams! They informed me that it was more than likely a scam! With this information I called the seller back and wanted a picture of the puppy with a newspaper from that days date on it and a government ID with a picture of him! I told him That after I received that information I would send half of the money, sending the other half after receiving the puppy! He agreed to this. Needless to say none of the information I requested was sent and I did NOT send any money!!

Maltese puppy scam

I too was looking for a Maltese puppy in surrounding states. I came across a so-called breeder that had puppies in Alabama available. But found out she was a scam. She did not get any money from me as she was determined to get a deposit. I told her I only put a deposit on something I for sure want and can see in person. So I must see the puppies first. To make a long story short her phone number is 4438638073. She was very determined for me to send a deposit to her Email (iTunes card) Sarah [email protected] gave the address of 2726 Muir Woods drive in Al 35763. I did drive to the address to see the puppy and well guess what she was not there and informed me she had an emergency and had to leave. When I got to the address there was a package with name of Julia groark on the porch. be Leary of this name also as she pulled up as a relative to Sarah. but if I would send her a deposit she would rush to get back other wise I would have to wait. I informed her I would not be waiting and I will be reporting her as a scammer.

Received email stating they had a Bichons for sale. Sent pictures as well as many details regarding the sale and delivery. After receiving a second email, I suspected it was a scam. I responded and have heard nothing more from them. Luckily, I figured this out before sending any money.
