There are many sites on the Internet which allow FREE classified ads. It is as simple as going to a site and placing an ad for anything for FREE. This creates a very unsafe environment for the public, ads can be placed without any back round check or screening. Pet shipping and Pet Transport companies along with the public have been dealing with the fallout from these "FREE" ad sites for years now. Sites like Kijiji.com, Craigslist.org and the like are really allowing this FRAUD to fester. Even when these sites are alerted of these fraudulent ads they seem to ignore the WARNINGS. Free puppy adoption and pet adoption SCAMS can be found on all of these FREE classified ad sites, they are easily found with a quick search, yet WARNINGS placed on these sites are quickly taken down by the administrators. It almost seems like they are encouraging this kind of thing. On this blog the ads to the right often are placed by Kijiji and they read like this "Adopt Pets for Free
Buy, Sell and Adopt Pets Free 100% Free Pet Classifieds at Kijiji " this is why this kind of FRAUD continues, again it almost seems like they encourage this kind of activity. We have taken many steps to try to protect the public from this criminal activity, until these sites step up and do a better job of policing their sites it is safe to say that this FRAUD will continue. If something does not sound on the "up and up" it most likely is not, any FREE ad offering pet adoption should be looked at as suspect. Any pet shipping service must be completely researched before you send money to anyone. Pure bred puppies, exotic birds baby monkeys etc... are expensive they are not given away for a couple of hundred dollars for the "shipping charges". As I always say "if it sounds to good too be true, it probably is".
