Puppy scam rorting potential pet owners across Melbourne
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.
