SCAMMERS***NOTE. Be cautious. Scammers are on the rise!”. *****
We advertise on Facebook, Instagram, this website. We -Danielle Harris or David on Facebook frequently post to groups or comment on things.
If you go to our Facebook page and see that Danielle has commented on a post – that is us. Most of our photos and videos are watermarked with our logo.
Anything outside of Danielle Harris, David, or any Le Pepite Frenchies Account is a scam.
When in doubt (or not) ask to facetime, video chat, or for the breeder to send a photo of the puppy you’re interested in with a place card or paper next to the puppy with “today’s” date.
Make sure the breeder has a contract in place.
Don’t send money in any way that is untraceable.
Don’t pay full balance upfront.
A security deposit is acceptable, but if someone asks you for the full amount before pickup day (when picking up in person), something isn’t right.
Ask for references: Past clients, other breeders, and veterinarians. Look for multiple ways of contact on the website.
I prefer text/email/message on social media to begin with, following up with a phone call as requested.
