I have encountered many "sellers" that go by fake names and locations. They post fake puppy pictures and videos. DO NOT send anybody deposit money or a full payment for a puppy until you've actually met the puppy or FaceTimed. $1,500 was stolen from me by a very clever scammer. Please see the images below and steer clear of fake sellers like this. Lancaster puppies is like Craigslist they protect and harbor scammers. They have refused to take action on any of these ads and there have been over 100 people scammed out of money. Typically we've seen them with Yorkshire terriers because they are pricey. I would avoid this website at all cost.

Tips:
-Never spend money without seeing the dog in person or on facetime
-Beware of anyone who only wants to converse over text
-Beware of sellers wanting you to send money to "deliver" the pup. It's a scam
-Ask for references
-Use breeders through a trusted source (friends, Facebook, etc

My husband and I saw an ad for a lovely Yorkshire terrier puppy from a breeder in Madison, Indiana. They were selling at least 15-20 random Yorkshire terrier puppies and most looked nothing like a Yorkie. Red flag #1. We found a cute 8 week old pup and contacted the seller. She preferred we have her husband deliver the pup to our home. We weren't that far so we didn't mind. However, she demanded a $500 deposit and delivery fee. They never ended up delivering the dog. She then got in contact with me when the dog was 20 weeks old and said he would be there next week. Guess what? Next week came and no dog again. When I checked into her background it turns out she is an online dog scammer. Basically, she has no dogs and is not a breeder she just steals money from people and claims it's a "deposit". We contacted the website to please remove the seller and her post because it is just a scam but they did not. Please be wary of anybody on that website. Also, lancasterpuppies.com is their sister site. They have the same posts and the same scams.
