Question by crazidoodle: Is this a puppy scam?
I found a post advertising a 11 month old maltese on pennysaverusa.com and while on the post it said they were in my hometown but when i emailed them, i found out they were in Africa. Her name is Carole Bright. She had many questions in how my house is like, how i would treat the puppy and if i would be a good owner. She says the maltese is 11 months old and weighs 1.6 lbs. She wants weekly pictures and she says she’s giving it away because her daughter’s moving. She says she lives at commercial 034 Yaounde Cameroon. The dog is for sale for $ 150 for everything, including her bed, toys and accessories. She’ll pay for the shipping because she says she wants to get the dog to me as soon as possible. Also, when i went back to the site, her ad was gone even though she had about 5 more dogs to sell. She had pictures as well but she could have took them off the internet. She seems to be trustworthy but what’s throwing me off is the price and the place. I’m a first time dog owner so i’m not sure. Is this a scam?

This is a scam. A very popular scam in fact.
