    Just someone who's bored more than likely, and this is their source of amusement.


    Nope, these are dogs that don't exist. They steal the photos from websites and a fake persona is made.

    No they are imaginary dogs

    they tell you to pay £100+ for shipping fees as they have to sell the dog as thier wifes dead gerbil doesnt like them so they need to rehome it and they dont want any money just shipping costs then you give them the money and a dog never comes

    You can never pick up a pup they can only ship due to working or the fact they need to leave the country within 24hrs

    yep all scams.

    but the fun you can have is great plus it ties up their time too.

    try these questions ok, on top of all the health check, ped papers and registration questions.

    wherever they say they are state you are travelling there tomorrow and can collect. laugh when they say they they have to go somewhere else.

    tell them you wont need a courier as you own a delivery company.

    ask for a phone number, then later ring it , prob a mobile, say you are the police / trading standards/ c a b. etc.

    say you live in the town where they pretend to be.

    you'll probably think of loads more but i love to screw around with them.

    also the idiots on epupz selling retriever old english x's and the such.

    dont like that site at all, ALOT of scammers out there pinching other peoples photos and useing them as their own, taking the deposits and then doing a runner or making up an excuse so you dont get your money back, NO PUPPY to buy......I always looked in pets4homes.co.uk and Epupz.co.uk, but you still have to be wairy of them too. Just be carefull. I have phoned two people asking if I could see thier chihuahua and they both said yes no problems, i gave a day and time to both and both said yes.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so who had the puppy at there home then .......NO PUPPY. IM not stupid. I took a long time before I found my little girl, I kept local so I could go visit the pups and didnt have to spend too much money on petrol there and back with no puppy to see. It makes me mad as there are genuine nice breeders out there and these people are putting us all off. xxxxxxxxxxx
