(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
