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.

FROM THE DIRETOR, DELIVERY/OPERATIONS, GLOBAL TRUST
SECURITIES, SOUTH AFRICA RE: TRANSFER OF US$40.5m FOR
I am DR.BRUCE WILLIAMS, the director of
Delivery/Operations GLOBAL TRUST SECURITIES, South
Africa. Our firm is a company of high repute with
years of outstanding services to the people of Africa
especially top government officials and military
leaders here in Africa. I have resolved to contact you
through this medium based on business proposal that
will be of mutual benefit to both of us. I have not
discussed this transaction with anybody because it is
of top secret.
To be explicit and straight to the point, sometime
early 1997 a reputable client of ours deposited a
consignment in our company's vault for safekeeping.
And since then our client has failed to come forward
to claim his consignment, has accumulated a
considerable amount of money in demurrage.
Consequently, in our bid to contact this client to
redeem the demurrage, which his consignment had
accumulated, we discovered that our client was the
former President of the Federation Republic of Zaire,
died of illness after he was dethroned in
the same year the consignment was entrusted into our
care. Since the death of our client President Mobutu
Seseseko, none of his benefactors has come forward to
claim the consignment with us, which means that non of
his relatives or aids has any knowledge of this
consignment. Hence out of curiosity I decided to
secretly open the two boxes that our client deposited
in our vault. And to my surprise I discovered that the
boxes that were registered as treasure by our client
actually contained a considerable amount of money in
United States Dollars amounting to about US$40.5
million US Dollars. Since this development I have been
nursing plans secretly. I also found out from
enquiries and the foreign media that our late client
siphoned a lot of money from his country while he was
in office as head of state. It is my conviction that
the consignment in our vault was part of the money
that our client siphoned and now that he is dead
there is no trace to this money in our care. I am now
soliciting your noble assistance to assist me in
transferring this money out of South Africa to your
country for immediate investment with your assistance.
I have also decided that you will generously be
entitled to 40% and I has map out 10% for any expanses
that might have come over during the process of this
transaction while 50% will be for me, out of the total
amount. Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your
willingness to assist me, I will immediately arrange
and transfer all the rights of ownership of this
consignment to your name to facilitate your easy
clearance and transfer of the complete funds to your
country for onwards investment. This transaction is
100% risk free. Please
maintain absolute confidential on this matter.
I await your most prompt response through my email.
