Puppy scam rorting potential pet owners across Melbourne

3AW News

Potential puppy owners in Melbourne have fallen victim to an online scam which may have spread nationwide.

Cardinia Police are investigating after a number of victims have come forward saying they’ve been robbed of their deposits and did not receive their new dogs.

Detectives believe victims have been asked to make deposits into a bank account for a puppy, interstate transport of the puppy, insurance and registration fees.

When all payments are received the victims don’t receive a dog or get their money back.

It’s believed there may be victims across Australia, dating back to the start of 2017.

Images of the dogs falsely advertised are below.
