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.

Good day,I am Miss. Daina Taylor, the only daughter of Mr. Innocent Taylor a Gold and Cocoa Merchant who based in Abidjan and had a branch office in Accra Ghana. According to my father, my own mother died when I was about six years of age,which means that I did not even know my mother very well.
My father Mr.Inocent Taylor was poisoned to death by his business associates about Eight months ago, and he died in a private hospital here in Abidjan. But when he was about to die, he called me beside his sick bed and told me that he deposited the sum of US$12,500 M (Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)in a private security company here in Abidjan Cote díIvoire,and he made me to understand that he deposited it as family valuables.
Please I got your contact address from network directory. Your impressive and managerial records made me to solicit for your partnership in these regards. Please I apologize if I infringed on your privacy.
My only problem now is that since my father has been poisoned to death by his business associates, I donít even trust any other person here again including my fatherís brothers and sisters.
Now I wish to transfer these funds abroad and enter into a business venture as the country (COTE D'IVOIRE)is no longer in peace since they conducted their presidential election on the 22nd October 2000 the country has witness all sorts of political unrest ranging from ethnic clash which resulted to killing of innocent citizen and strangers. People are living in fears as the country is no longer that peaceful nation as it was before.
All I want you to do is to assist me to make an urgent arrangement to make sure we move this money out of this country into a safe account overseas for onward investment.
I have two options for you; the first is that you could choose to
have a certain agreeable percentage of the money for nominating your
account for this transaction. The other is that you could as well go
into a joint business partnership with me for proper investment of
the fund in your country. Whichever, way you want it, feel free to
I have also mapped out 5% of the money for all kinds of expenses
incurred in the process of the transaction and if you do not prefer
joint partnership, I am offering you 20% of the fund, while the rest
of 75% will be for my investment.
NOTE.THIS BUSINESS IS HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL
BECAUSE NONE OF MY LATE FATHERíS BROTHERS AND SISTERS KNOWS ABOUT THIS TRANSACTION.
Kindly contact me Via email should this proposal happen to meet your utmost considerations.
