In Wooster, Ohio, a family is out more than $1,700 and never received the French bulldog puppy they purchased online over the weekend.

According to News5Cleveland, Angela Mark responded to an online advertisement for the French bulldog puppies in late August. In November the family had to say goodbye to their two dogs – one of which had belonged to Mark’s dad who died earlier in the year.

When Angela saw the ad about French bulldog puppies in Montana, she called and the seller told her his father had also recently died and the family was now unable to care for the puppies and she could buy one at a discounted price, however Angela would also have to pay $300 for shipping.

Although the shipping company’s website seemed legitimate, there does not seem to be an official filing for American Deliver Service, and there had been several red flags which should have triggered a deeper investigation into the legitimacy of the entire transaction.

Unfortunately puppy scams have been on the increase, and the public is being warned to watch out for red flags including email only communication, stock photos of puppies, payments through prepaid gift cards or untraceable sources.
