A WOMAN has shared how her parents forked out £1,100 for a purebred Maltese only to discover they had fallen victims to a scam.
The TikToker explained her parents thought they made a good choice with the popular dog breed- but their pup turned out to be something completely different.

TikTok user @squidsum shared pics of what an actual purebred Maltese looks like wi the caption: “What my parents thought we were getting when they spent $1400 on a pure bred Maltese.”
She can be seen turning the camera to herself before pointing it at the -now- family pet, which is adorable but definitely not a purebred Maltese.
“We got scammed,” she wrote in the caption.
Some TikTokers were quick to note that the dog is cute even if it’s not a purebred while others shared their scam stories.
One said: “never buy a small dog.”
Someone added: “He lookin pretty cool tho.”
A TikToker said: “my friend’s dad paid the same amount for “pure bred pit bulls” and after a few years they’re the most braindead goofy dogs ever. definitely not pure.”
The woman defended the new addition to the family and said: “he might b a lil crispy but he’s still my baby.”
Another couple paid £1,800 for a purebred Pomeranian only to discover they were scammed in the sale.
A Brit family was left thousands out of pocket when they bought two Pomeranians online – and fell for a Russian import scam.
One woman was also left stunned when she realised her purebred £1.7k goldendoodle puppy was not what its papers claimed it was.
And another pet lover told how she bought a £3k purebred French bulldog puppy – which grew up to look shockingly different too.
