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 got your contact during my search on the Internet. My name is Mr. MrChuks Elemadu, the regional manager of a branch of Barclays Bank Ghana in Takoradi-Western Region of Ghana. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids.
I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. As the regional manager of the bank, it's my duty to send financial reports to my head office in the capital city of Accra. On the course of the last year 2003 end of the of the year's report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made Eleven Million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars (11,550.000.00) of which my head office is not aware of and will never be aware of it. I have since then PLACED this fund on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.
As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to assured you that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.
If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response.
