Once or twice a week I get a frantic phone call or email from someone who has been scammed.
Sometimes those adorable wrinkly faces turn people's mind to mush and they
make the horrible mistake of sending money to people for the
deal of a lifetime on a new bully baby.
There are so many scammers out there that K-9 stud.com has several pages dedicated to stopping these scammers.
Visit www.k9stud.com/scammers.aspx and do your homework.

There are no $300 bulldogs and no one is going to send you one for free if you just pay for the shipping. It cost $350-$450 to fly a puppy by plane.
THERE ARE NO MISSONARIES IN AFRICA THAT TOOK THEIR BULLDOGS WITH THEM AND WANT TO SHIP THEM BACK.
SISTER SO-N-SO AND FATHER SO-N-SO DO NOT EXIST!
I also just recieved a copy of this email our puppies photos were stolen and forward along with this email

Shame on this person!
Scammer's emails will have extremely proper or sometimes broken english, but not always, scams since the first of the year are so elaborate that it is sometimes hard to tell what is real and what is not. Puppies must have a state or international health certifcate issued to shipped (ground or air), so a veternarian must be involved to issue this. If you cannot personally speak to this person vet's office...huge red flag.
Example of a scammer's email.
This is an actual email sent to someone (luckily they did not fall for it):
"You're lucky to have mailed at this time because the puppy has just been placed on adoption by one of my customers, who went on a Missionary transfer with the West African Missionaries, West Africa .He is giving the pup up for adoption for $300 because he cant take good care of the pup due to his busy and tight schedules at church and at his missionary work. All he wants is someone that's homely and a caring person to adopt this young and lovely "human best friend." He will give the Puppy to you if you promise to take good care of the puppy. He needs a loving and caring home for his puppy because he really wants the puppy to go to a good home. If you are willing to take the puppy contact the Reverend (Reverend Paul Dante) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Willybulldog.com is a scam. It looks for real, but it's not.
https://www.tabbulldogs.com also looks very real but it is not.
Best one yet!!! From Teri who wanted to share her experience with this would be scammer.
This is as real as it gets guys. Pay close attention to the details.
Petairways is a real company and in no way a participant in this scam. Their logo and information was stolen from their website.

TRANSFER TYPE AIM OF TRANSFER CHARGES DURATION FOR ACTIVATION
1. Commercial Transfer Customer - Company $50 12 hours activation
2.. Casual Transfer To relative or Friend $25 15 minutes activation
From the above we can conclude that the commercial transfer type is more expensive and slowest, so we do usually advice our customers to use the second transfer option, which is the casual transfer type, since it is cheaper and fastest.
