It has recently come to our attention that there are ads on Facebook claiming to be Royal Flush Cavaliers, offering puppies for sale at ridiculous prices. These are NOT our ads and we encourage anyone who has been a victim of these scammers or sees these ads to report them. We are not sure how these people even found our ads but they are using the wording from our WordPress page with photos stolen from yet another breeder - samples are below.
We have been in operation for 30 years and have never blindly shipped at an airport.
We would never ask anyone to text only. - We encourage people to call or email us with any questions.
We would never have anyone wire money or use Western Union. - These should be immediate red flags to any online buyer.
The fraudulent ads you are seeing originate in West Africa. This is why they have their victims wire funds or send them via Western Union. It is also why they have you "text only" because if you spoke with them you would hear their accent and know right away that you are not dealing with a local breeder. Their phone numbers are Google Voice numbers that they dump when they are done running their scam. They simply get a new number and start again, some even delete and re-post their fake ads on new FB pages.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO THE FOLLOWING:
- File a police report - Notify your bank or credit card company - Notify Facebook of the scam ad - Report it to your local FBI office - Report it to your state Attorney Generals office - Report it to the Internet Crime Complaint Center - link below: https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
We have reported these ads and this person to Facebook countless times and they do nothing! We have reported them as fraud, theft of intellectual property, anything we could. I posted about this on our IG account and our clients started to make the reports with us. We were hoping if we inundated the with reports that they would act on this - they did not. Please advise anyone NOT to buy a puppy from any text only/online ad on Facebook!
Below is one sample of the fraudulent ads they are posting on Facebook (shown on 6/24/2018) Please note that we have REPEATEDLY reported this to Facebook and they just keep re-posting it:
