Hi, I posted a message to two different sellers on Truebuy.com.au and got responses from the different sellers within 5 hours. Had I not sent it to multiple sellers, i may have fallen for it, but because I got both stories, I saw they were just so similar to be a lucky coincidence:

I wrote to them:

Quote:

"Hello, saw your listing for Japanese spitz puppy. Where are you located? May
I come visit next weekend to see your puppies?"


Here are the replies:

Hello,

Thanks for your mailing regarding my Puppies, I still have them
available. I have a Male and Female Available.They are A.K.C
Registered, House Trained and Potty Trained, They have been vet checked
and vaccinated till date, Current on shots. They are Good temperament
Babies with kids.they are called bella and benny and are 09 weeks old.
I just move over here in Tasmania due to my job transfer and am
with the puppies and they are ready to go. I am giving
out these puppies because of the nature of my job and also the people in
my area are also all very busy with their jobs and more to that they are not
friendly with pets. I will like you to come over and collect the
puppies but If you can't come over then i can arrange for the sex you
want to be deliver at your home using a Pets Courier From here that
will have them delivered right to your doorstep and you will be paying
just $350 for the puppy including delivery to your door steps
and. that's all you are paying for as am
giving them out very cheap just to a caring and lovely home.

Please may i ask you some few questions?

Where are you Located ?
Have you ever had a puppy before ?
If Yes Which Breed ?
How Soon Do you want the puppy(s) ?
Are you Interested to have both or just one ?

They shall be Coming Along with the Following :

>>> A.K.C Registered Paper,
>>> 1 Year Health Guarantee Certificate,
>>> Puppy Passport
>>> Pedigree Certificate of Veterinary Inspection
>>> Up to date vaccinations records
>>> Puppy Packets ( cloths,playing toys,washing shampoo and brush etc.)

I have kept the 'names' of the scammers as initials as well as their addresses in case they used a real persons name of which I don't want to direct bad attention to the real owner of the name/home. so I went along with it... and responded with:


Quote:
Thank you for your speedy response H!

The puppies look absolutely adorable! are you the breeder of them or did you purchase the puppies from a breeder?

Below are the answers to your questions:

>Where are you Located ?

>Have you ever had a puppy before ?
For myself, I have only had cats before, but my partner has had experiences with raising larger dogs.

>If Yes Which Breed ?
The dogs mentioned above a border collie and an Australian sheet dog Smile

>How Soon Do you want the puppy(s) ?
Ready to purchase this week if suitable.

>Are you Interested to have both or just one ?
Just the one

>If Just One then will you Prefer to have bella or benny ?
We would like the boy - so Benny

Can you describe to me what your adoption process is like in terms of payment and organising the courier?
and what does the "1 Year Health Guarantee Certificate" cover?


and their response was:

Quote:

Thanks for accepting to take very good care of my puppies so they will be
coming with all their papers and all i will need from you is just love
and care for her and also for you to promise me that you will have to
send me monthly updates for me to know how
they are doing why with you okay so all i will need from you for the
delivery arrangement are as follows.

YOUR NAMES IN FULL.......

HOME ADDRESS .................

CITY..............................

STATE.............................

POST CODE..........................

PHONE NUMBERS..................

DIRECT EMAIL ADDRESS.............


as soon as i have all these details i will have to drive to the
delivery service on Monday morning for the delivery arrangement and
also for the change
of ownership papers from my names to yours in full so that the puppy
will be ready to be deliver over to your home. and as soon as all that
is done the delivery service will
have to contact you via email and by phone to let you know on how you
will be paying for the delivery fee and also on how you will receive
the puppy home. so you will have to note that you will be paying for the
delivery fee directly to the delivery service that will deliver the puppy
over to your home Before they can deliver it okay and all you will
have to pay for Each puppy including shipping over to your home will be
just the $350 so please do make sure you take very good
care of my puppy why with you and also do promise me that you will
treat them like your
own family member okay.


BOOM! none of my questions answered... so I re-prompted them with

Quote:
"No worries! More than happy to look after them and give you regular updates!

Before I sign the papers and get you to arrange for the courier - are we able to arrange a Skype chat just so I can see the puppies?

And just for my own record, are you the breeder of them or did you purchase the puppies from a breeder?"


of which the reply was:

Quote:
Am not a breeder, i got them from their mother, which i sold ever
since due to my job transfer.


and again, ignoring my Skype questions, when I prompted again, they replied with:

Quote:

Am very tight at work that is why am selling them off, but if you are
not sure of what you want to buy then i think someone else is going to
but.


Kind of disappointing that the deal wasn't real - I hope no one else falls for their tricks. I have read a few other puppy scams were similar to this.
