BEWARE - Puppy tricks that SCUMBAG SCAMMERS Use!

1. **Unrealistically Low Prices:** If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Scammers often offer puppies at exceptionally low prices to attract potential buyers.

2. **No Personal Interaction:** Avoid sellers who refuse to meet in person or conduct transactions solely online. Genuine breeders are usually open to face-to-face meetings.

3. **Requests for Wire Transfers or Gift Cards:** Scammers often ask for payment through wire transfers or gift cards, as these methods are difficult to trace. Be cautious if the seller insists on these payment methods.

4. **Lack of Information:** Legitimate breeders provide detailed information about the puppy, including health records, vaccination history, and parent information. Scammers may provide limited or vague details.

5. ** Photos** Scammers download photos from other websites or Social Media postings.

6. **No References or Reviews:** Legitimate breeders usually have references or positive reviews from previous customers. Be wary if you can't find any information about the seller or their breeding history.

7. **Pressure to Buy Quickly:** Scammers often create a sense of urgency, pressuring buyers to make fast decisions. Take your time to research and verify information before making a purchase.

8. **Unprofessional Communication:** Poor grammar, misspellings, or generic responses in communication may indicate a scam. Legitimate breeders generally maintain professional and clear communication.

9. **Reluctance to Answer Questions:** If the seller avoids answering specific questions about the puppy's health, lineage, or living conditions, it could be a sign of a scam. Genuine breeders are transparent and open about such details.

10. **Shipping as the Only Option:** Scammers may insist on shipping the puppy and not allow local pickup. You should always meet your Perfect Puppy Match In Person before deciding or making ANY payments.
