Puppies for Presents?
Are you thinking about giving a puppy for Christmas? The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about a surge in online puppy scams. Reports to the organization have doubled since 2019 and increased five-fold in the past four years. If you are set on having a puppy present, Investigator Don O’Brien says it’s best to not purchase one online.
O’Brien says don't be fooled by a well-designed website. And if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Beware of scammers who offer to "re-home" their purebred puppy in exchange for transportation or vaccination fees.
