NEWMARKET — Suffolk police are warning the public to be wary of online classified ads offering puppies for sale.

Two complaints have been logged in Newmarket after victims sent a puppy payment to the supposed sellers via Moneygram.

According to a Suffolk Constabulary news release, the sellers then asked for more money to cover postage. The puppies never arrived. Subsequent communication with the puppy sellers indicated they were speaking “poor English,” according to the release.

Police are asking the public to be cautious when responding to such ads and not to send money to people whose identity cannot be verified.

Investigations into the complaints continue, and anyone with information is asked to call 01284-774100.
