below is from a Scammer! Some of the emails
may not look like scams, but they all lead to the same
thing. The scammer will pay by check (cashier's check/money
order) for more then the pet is worth, then they will
ask you to send them back the difference in money. A
couple weeks later you find out the check was fake and
the bank will take it out of your account. This scam
can be set up several ways.
key points for pointing out a scammer:
1. Doesn't care much about the pet, just the transaction.
2. Says they will use their own shipper.
3. 95% of the scammers are from overseas (Nigeria, Israel, South Africa)
4. Pays you more then the pet is worth, then asks for the difference in money back.

My name is Gina. I came across your pet that you place for sale and I'm interested in purchasing your pet without no further delay. I am buying it as a gift for my daughter. I want you to email me with your final asking price and recent pictures of the pet. I will be using my private shipping company to pickup the pet from your location. I will also like to know if you accept a Certified Bank Cheque as mode of payment. Thanks and waiting for your response so we can get somethings done regarding the pet.
