Suffolk: Puppy Scam

Police in Suffolk are again urging anyone considering buying a dog via the internet to be alert after further reports of a scam designed to get money under false pretences were received by officers.

A Suffolk resident responded to an advertisement online for a puppy for sale and paid several hundred pounds for the puppy and for it to be transported. 

The puppy was never delivered as promised.

Police have received several reports of residents in Ipswich, Stowmarket, Felixstowe and Bury St Edmunds being conned in a similar way in the past -  with a variety of different dogs, usually puppies, including King Charles Spaniels, Pugs and English Bulldogs, being used to entice buyers.
