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'm interested in buying your above posted pet. I lost my loving pet in
a motor accident, ever since then i have no pet to keep my company. I
do without having pet beside me. I've reported this to the PETFINDERS
ANIMAL RESCUERS, PET LOCATORS if they can help me to find her but
then i want to buy one to be my second in the house. So descibe in
present condition, it feeding, your last asking price and send it
for more satisfaction.
Never worry your-self about the shipping of the pet, i have an
underground Vet shipping company that are interested in the safety of
and specialise in handling of live-stock while shipping.
Contact them at (email@example.com) to make adequate
arrangement as regard the pick up. i'm waiting for your earnest
