Despite the fact we are helping people find a new family member or rehoming a loving pet that can no longer be looked after we have people out there who want to rip you off.
We here at Pet Adoption and Sales have put many systems in place to try and stop scammers from putting up listings that are solely designed to remove you from your hard earned money. We find it deplorable and want it to stop.
Unfortunately with all our vigilance and all our systems in place some scammers manage to get through. So we have put together some basic rules for those thinking about buying a new pet and what you should do to remain safe.
People trying to scam you will put up the nicest images of pets just to draw you in.
Buying or Adopting a new pet should be a positive, amazing experience but we need to be vigilant!
We recently removed this listing because it was a scam. See how real it looks. Never pay any money up front.
This is a Scam!!
Remember – if it is too good to be true, it most likely isn’t!!
Hope this helps!!
Lets stop the scammers in their tracks and follow these simple rules.
