New Internet Scam – Promising Puppies

If you think “catfishing” online is bad (that’s someone pretending to be someone else), we now have people scamming other people with the fake promise of a puppy.

If you’re looking for a fur buddy, beware anyone offering to sell you a dog over the internet, especially if they’re asking you to buy gift cards and read the numbers to them over the phone.

The experts say you’re better off visiting a local shelter. Not only will you get a real dog, but you can make sure you and your new best friend hit off before you take him or her home.
