PET buyers have been told to be wary of a dodgy Facebook page ripping off consumers.
The Facebook page “Bulldog Puppies for sale in Australia” is a scam, with two buyers defrauded thousands of dollars.
A west Australian woman lost $2500, but stopped sending money when she was asked to pay an extra $2000 for transport fees and insurance.

The money was transferred into a NSW-based bank account, however was then wired to Russia.
The bank account owner, whose account was used to transfer more than $25,000, is believed to be a victim.
The scam page uses the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and Consumer Protection is working to shut the page down.
