TL:DR This Facebook page is a scam. Report it to FB and warn people. Do not fall for it.

First time posting such a long post. So, yeah. I was looking for corgis to buy or adopt in Malaysia. Found this page and it looked promising. However, I have also searched online after their very unusual "pet delivery service" message. Sure enough, I found many pet adoption scams with the exact same technique. There was one posted here in LowYat a year or two ago. Same MO.

10 Why are you so interested in this breed Loved it for a while. Even went to pet cafes just to get to know this breed.
11 what do you know about them, why do you admire in them? They are energetic, playful. Can grow to quite big.
12 will you like to know more from me? Yes. There are a lot of people selling corgis for upwards of $6000 per dog. So I'm surprised you are offering it for adoption. Why is that? Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Puppies and kittens for adoption in Malaysia:

Hello and sorry for the late response. the reason why we are giving the Puppies out is because my father who was the owner of our pet shop just passed away and since there is nobody to keep up with the pet store, we just think its better we offer them for adoption to pet loving families. we recently just relocated to Thailand and will be very happy to have you in our home.But if you are very busy and cant make it here, we can use a pet delivery service to get the Puppy/puppies delivered to your home address and all you will have to pay for is just the delivery fees okay? i love the pet delivery service because the are very efficient and also moderate price and above all, they are fast. They Love eating Evolve Canned Dog Food( Evolve is known for great ingredients and taste so now you can be confident that your giving your Dog the very best. A variety of flavors include: Chicken & Pasta Pomodora, Duck, Sweet Potato & Avacado, Pheasant & Potato, and Veal Stew. Package includes twelve 13.2 oz. cans.) and other such as Hi-Tor Eno-Diet Canned Dog Food, Hi-Tor Reduso-Diet Canned Dog Food etc..puppies are all delivered with play toys and bed.

Status JUL 7, 2017: Waiting for their reply.

SUMMARY:
Corgis available for adoption for free - What is the likelihood of that in Malaysia? Almost non-existent. Corgis’ average price is RM5,000.
Owner of pet shop passed away, so the children are giving away the pets for free but you need to pay for delivery service from THAILAND. - Sounds weird.
Delivery service is “Rm.750 for one puppy and Rm.1000 for the home delivery of both puppies including delivery and change of ownership papers .” Scammy.
“he/she will be coming alongside with ready stuffs.” – What are “ready stuffs”?
“Puppies home in just a few Hours Time”. Delivery time is apparently super fast and this is from THAILAND!

WATCH OUT! DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

Nope. I think they realized I'm wise to their scam.
