– In this month’s contribution to the Australian Puppy Scams Hall of Shame, we showcase Global-Free-Classified-Ads .com, which is yet another MFA (Made For Adsense) site that exists to enable thieves to steal your money.

If the above sounds like a big call, then click here to check out the attached video and you’ll see what we mean. Needless to say, we are never in fear of law suits alleging defamation over such videos (although we sure have been threatened!), because the crooks behind such sites want to stay well underneath their rocks of anonymity as they facilitate the criminal acts of their mates.

At pups4sale, we were alerted to this site by a grateful member of the public who had seen one of our regular videos on the topic of puppy scams, and then twigged that Global-free-classified-ads was also a scam site. Fortunately this member of the public had not lost his money before contacting us, unlike others who have lost hundreds – if not thousands – prior to seeing our videos and emailing us.

It is relatively easy to expose a scammer for what they are, if you know how. Many people who get caught by them however don’t know how prevalent puppy scams are, or ignore the warning signs because they are so heart-set on a particular puppy.

So here is a simple tip you (or those you know) can use to stop the scammers dead in their tracks, should you be looking through the various classified sites that host puppy ads: If you can’t ring an advertiser on an Australian mobile phone number via their ad, or if you make email contact with them and they refuse to supply a mobile phone number to contact them on, then it is almost 100% guaranteed the ad you are looking at is a scam. Don’t take any excuses as to why you can’t ring them – and remember, these criminals steal money for a living, so they are very resourceful. If you can’t ring them and talk to them about the proposed pup, then run, run as fast as you can away from the ad and site in question.

More safety tips and the full list of sites we have exposed in the Australian marketplace for allowing puppy scam ads to be run on their pages, can be found here.

Feel free to comment below, or on our YouTube Channel where the video on today’s site is hosted, Alternatively, if you have any questions about a site or ad you are not sure of, feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to check it out for you. 😉

      Prue, EVERY puppy ad on Omnia as well as the site this blog Post is about are fake. Just stay right away from them. The scammers are very clever at what they do, but you can be even cleverer by avoiding the sites we list on our Scams page on pups4sale. You can always contact the Police and report such scammers, but they really aren’t interested as the scammers are always located overseas.
