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.

I AM AN ACCOUNTANT IN THE BILL AND EXCHANGE OF THE
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT OF INTERNATIONAL BANK OF
I am writing you, following the impressive information
about your profile through the web site.Therefore, I
believed that you shall posess the capability and
reliability to champion this opportunity with me.
In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of 14
million US dollars (Fourteen million US dollars), in
an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customers, who died in October 31,1999 in a plane crash, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. Since we got the urgly information about his death, we have been expecting his next of Kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of Kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking and financial policies but unfortunately we learnt that his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him in the accident leaving no body behind to claim the money.It is therefore upon this discovery that I and a partner in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bills. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after six years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.
The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this
business is occasioned by the fact that the customer
was a foreigner and an indigene cannot stand as next
of kin to the deceased family.
We agreed that 20% of this money will be for you as
foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a
foreign account, 5% will be set aside for expenses
incurred during this transaction and 75 % would be for
me and my colleagues. Thereafter, I and my colleagues
will visit your country for disbursement according to
the percentages indicated.
To enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you
as arranged above, you must apply first to the Bank as
the relation or next of kin to the deceased indicating
your private telephone and fax numbers for easy and
effective communication and location where the money
will be remitted.
Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax
or e-mail the text of the application. I will not fail
to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch
free and that you should not entertain any atom of
fear as all required arrangements have been made for
You should contact me immediately upon the receipt of this mail,I decided to contact you as we have products of interest in your part of the world where we can invest our own percentage to avoid peoples awareness as we are civil servants. With your acceptance and cooperation, we can conclude this operation within ten working days. Please keep this very confidential.
May God be with you.
