It’s been a while since we updated our list of Australian sites that allow puppies for sale scams to be run on their pages. The time has come to do so however, as #pups4sale has recently been alerted to (yet) another site running such scams by a man who very nearly became a victim.

The list of other sites we have already exposed and which allow such scams to run on them are:

Like the Dutch Multinational known as Gumtree (which you may have mistakenly thought is Australian), Australialisted.com is also based overseas; this time in Sweden. This site also facilitates unscrupulous overseas scammers in their never-ending quest to see unsuspecting Australians relieved of their hard-earned money.
We’ve already uploaded a number of videos to our YouTube Channel on how these scams are run. By clicking on the image in this blog post, you will be taken to the latest upload in this sorry tale of websites who do not care one-whit for their visitors.
Suffice it to say we strongly recommend you steer well clear of the sites mentioned here when thinking of buying not only a puppy, but anything else online as well – as their claims of consumer protection are simply worthless.
If you know of any other sites that facilitate such scams in Australia, let our readers know in the comments section below.
Of course, if in any doubt about the veracity or otherwise of any puppy ad on any site in Australia, feel free to contact us. Our family team will be only too glad to give the ad in question the once over to ensure your family doesn’t become a victim of such scams.
