BULLDOG PUPPY SCAM ALERT!
STOP NOW & READ!!!
NEVER SEND ANYONE MONEY WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW PERSONALLY!
PLEASE! TAKE A MINUTE TO READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE, IT WILL BE WELL WORTH YOUR TIME!!!
We feel it is truly a shame we must add this page but we feel the responsibility to keep people informed on how to educate and protect themselves from these criminals with regards our beloved English Bulldog breed!
On one hand the Internet is wonderful because you could find a super
awesome, healthy, well bred English Bulldog puppy that you could never
have found across the street. BUT PLEASE be aware that there are lots of
scams on the Internet! Please find below 3 sections of information
designed to help you protect yourself from these heartless thieves.
Scammers have literally stolen our identity and copied our web site (see a few scam sites listed below) in addition to stealing text and pictures as in the past. Scammers have even posted ads in local town news papers & on sites such as puppyfind, hoobly.com & others using my name (Scott Ward), the name Champ Bulldogs, our telephone number and address!! We were tipped off when we received 3 calls about a Maltese puppy being advertised on puppyfind.com. (Imagine my surprise, being that Bulldogs are our only breed! Added to this WE DO NOT ADVERTISE ON MOST CLASSIFIED SITES AS THEY ARE OVERRUN BY SCAMMERS!) After some investigating I found a scammer listing at least 4 different breeds under MY NAME AND ADDRESS! These scam artists are hoping to use our excellent reputation to commit these horrible crimes. These monstrous scammers try to pull this off by directing any responses to these ads to a phony email. Unfortunately, many uneducated puppy buyers are willing to go through the entire purchase process via e-mail only. Please be aware that our contact information is ONLY AS FOLLOWS: Email email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org phone number: 301-643-2961. These are safe and secure ways to contact Champ Bulldogs. PLEASE NEVER BUY A PUPPY JUST FROM ADS YOU FIND ON THE INTERNET!! Find a real breeder with a web site & standing reputation. Many of these classified sites have knowingly made a profitable business out of catering to scammers and their techniques.
(The email below is a scammer who is using stolen pictures)
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
* WANTING A DEPOSIT OF HALF THE MONEY ASAP WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM!
* THE SELLER/SCAM ARTIST CLAIMING TO BE CHRISTIAN, LOVE GOD, THEY ARE A REVEREND or that they do missionary/minister work in west Africa.*
* ANY STATEMENT ABOUT AFRICA, WEST AFRICA OR NIGERIA!
* SAYING THEY CAN'T TALK ON THE PHONE! (SOME SAY IT IS BECAUSE THEY GOT IN
A BIKE OR OTHER ACCIDENT- THEY ARE NOW DEAF AND NEED A DEAF TRANSLATOR!
*RECENTLY MANY OF THESE SCAMMERS HAVE BECOME MORE PROFESSIONAL AT COMMITTING THESE SCAMS. IN DOING SO, MANY THROW UP THEIR OWN WEB SITES FULL OF STOLEN PICTURES & EVEN STOLEN TEXT. WE HAVE EVEN HAD SCAMMERS ACTUALLY STEAL OUR IDENTITY AND COPY OUR ENTIRE WEBSITE!!!!! SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL. AGAIN DO NOT SEND MONEY BY MONEY GRAM OR WESTERN UNION. TALK TO THE SO CALLED BREEDER & TALK TO THEIR REFERENCES. MAKE SURE YOU DO YOUR HOMEWORK SO AS TO MAKE A SAFE, INFORMED DECISION ON WHO YOU PURCHASE YOUR PUPPY FROM!
* DO NOT BUY AN BULLDOG PUPPY FROM ANYONE WHO YOU CAN'T TALK TO PERSONALLY AND BECOME FRIENDS WITH!
* DO NOT BUY AN ENGLISH BULLDOG FROM ANY ONE WHO CAN NOT GIVE YOU SEVERAL LEGITIMATE PERSONAL REFERENCES!
