Multiple Internet Scams Being Investigated

During the holiday season, many people relish in the thought of not having to leave the comfort of their homes and buy gifts online.

With the perks of technology, like online shopping, comes the cons- internet scams.

Hinesville’s Police Department’s Detective Kyle Lairamore has been working on solving multiple cases involving internet fraud.

The scam- adorable puppies up for sale. Once a person inquires about the puppies, they are informed that the pups are located in Hinesville, Georgia and can be sent to them.

Potential owners pay several fees, including shipping, but the dogs never arrive.

Online shopping can be wonderful, but it is imperative to know all the information before purchasing anything online.

And, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Two websites have been identified in this ongoing investigation: http://www.dolcepugshome.net/index.html and http://www.rdpompuppies.com/.
