Tip # 5 Get it in writing and do a video call.

As well as doing voice calls, get the deal in writing. Make sure you know what is included in the price eg inoculations, microchip implant etc. If you are too far away to visit the breeder, and the breeder is arranging transport, make sure you have it in writing that transport, and a crate is included in the price. Scammers often pretend to be transport companies. They take your money and disappear. The transport company person is the same scammer as the "breeder."  Take screenshots of the conversation immediately in case the scammer deletes the conversation. The screenshots can be used as evidence.

Lastly, If you are too far away to go and see the puppies, arrange to do a video call at a mutually convenient time. If it's a scam, the breeder will have excuses not to do a video call. Scammers don't have any puppies. They are liars! They copy photos & videos of puppies off the internet. So the video call needs to be in real time.

If you see the breeder and puppies together on a video call, and can talk to the breeder at the same time, then it's a genuine breeder and it's highly unlikely that you will be scammed.
