WA ScamNet received a report from a consumer who was looking for a puppy via Gumtree, when she noticed an advertisement for the website royalonlinebullies.com
The consumer clicked and lodged an enquiry to get a dog named “Rocky” and was told they were in Broome. They searched for this breeder but couldn’t find it. They asked the consumer to make payment up front plus $150 for shipping or $200 for straight to the door. This is when suspicions kicked in.
This caught her suspicion and prompted her to call Dogs West to find out if there is a breeder up that way. Dogs West confirmed there was no breeder in Broome for this type of dog.
