I've got a couple of those with my current 2 litters. LMAO every time I get one. Now that you know what to look for, try not to open any of these emails and just delete them right away. I learned the hard way when one of them launched a virus on my computer :(
LOL...I got a couple of these, and without inquiring about a puppy...They always use the same stories and everything. If you are trying to scam someone, you should step your game up! Well anyways, it's very funny and I can relate to this...as many can...thanks!
lol That is a funny one.. Geeez, lets bark orders at you! lol Yeah and like a any ethical, responsible breeder is going to just turn loose of a puppy to a delivery company guy. Thats hilarious.. You should play along with this guy.. You should send him a picture of a chicken and ask him if the puppy is up to his standards.. I bet the dumb a$$ will write back and say Yes, hes great looking, perfect I want him. I despise these people witha passion, and they need to have the tables turned on them.
he doesnt even have his facts straight about the breed ! first he is aking about your doberman puppy, then towards the end it becomes a german shepherd puppy ! LMAO !! he probably has sent out so many of those scam emails, he even got himself confused. lol
I JUST GOT THIS E-MAIL THIS MORNING.................. Name: Matt Dominic Email: email@example.com Phone: 4356-35......... Contact Date: 2006-7-30 Message: Good Day. I am Dr. Matt Dominic. I saw your For sale advertisment online. and am interested in buying it for my girlfriend.in California. I want to know if its still available for sale or not? I want to know the present conditions? I want to see some pictures of it if there is any? tell me how much you are willing to let it go? will you accept payment in form of check or Money Order? But mind you, I will make arrangement for the pick-up personally through my private shipper from Nigeria. And as soon as the payment is made. so you dont have to worry about anything. So if you are ready please kindly also give me the following details along to make the transaction fast and easier FULL NAME............. ADDRESS............. CITY.................. STATE................. COUNTRY.............. ZIPCODE................. PHONE NUMBER................. EMAIL ADDRESS............. SELLING AMOUNT.................. MODE OF PAYMENT.............. Thanx and I will get back at you as soon as you have emailed me the needed informations. I sent him an e-mail back "We do not participate in scams! I have notified terrificpets.com, (I listed several dog selling websites here), ect., ect., of your name and e-mail address, so they know you are a scammer. And I also forwarded your e-mail to my local Police Department, Cyber Crimes Division." I doubt that sending him that response bothered him any, but it was fun for me.
It is worth playing along with them and having them send you the fake check. it cost them a lot of money to mail those checks from Nigeria. if enough people have them spend that much on checks, it will hurt their bottom line.
Ruffian, they don't ever get the animals. They send a fake check to you, you're supposed to cash it or deposit it, and wire them money. They'll start giving you a big sob story, trying to get you to send them whatever you can. Meanwhile, the check comes back bad and you are held responsible by the bank. Someone posted a really funny website that shows how people have scammed them back. Its really funny.
LOL, My friend used to get tons of those emails when she was selling her yorkies, and I helped her out with emails and such. I remember a hilarious one where he asked stupid questions about the yorkie and then completely changed his sentence talking about a horse for sale! He said he'd send a check for $3000, and the yorkie was only $800, he told her to send him the remaining cash back..lol, how can people be so dumb to fall for this? I wonder where all the poor animals go when they're shipped to them??
Someone should seriously write a book called "A Book of African Liars" and have like everyone's stories posted on it from emails they've been sent. Are they really from Africa?
Superwoman, google/yahoo Nigerian Scams These people not only scam money from unsuspecting puppy buyers but from people by using other scams. The most common are those emails sent out explaining they lost a family member due to an illness to play upon people heartstrings to get tons of money. They have used the Tsunami, Military in Iraq, and many other tragedies to gain wealth
BTW, many articles Ive read have stated these scams are run by their government. Niiiiiice huh? The scammers have been tracked by email as living in the Ivory Coast, Ghana, and several other countries in Africa.
