I have written before about being caught out by scammers, and also how to spot a scammer. Yes, I got caught out because I wasn’t thinking.
The latest round, isn’t relating to Computers but with puppies. Everyone needs to be aware. I have recently read an article from ScamWatch, What the scammers are doing is posting photos of adorable looking puppies on sites such as Facebook offering them for sale, and asking for money to clear them through customs & quarantine. The problem is, that the actual puppies do not exist, and that you have actually lost your money.
If you are looking for a dog (or puppy), either go to your local animal rescue – or if you are looking at paying a little extra for a pure bred, contact your local Kennel Control for a registered breeder.
