Report: 80 percent of sponsored pet ads may be fake: Scam Watch

Local News

(WSYR-TV) — If you’re in the market for a new family pet, the Better Business Bureau warns that 80 percent of sponsored ads about pets may be fake.

To avoid getting scammed:

  • NEVER buy a pet without meeting it and the seller in person 
  • NEVER pay with a money order
  • ALWAYS pay with a credit card so you have proof of payment
  • RESEARCH the breed so you know the price market
