Thank god that i found this b4 sending money here is the email we got

Mine was for a yokie

First of all, I must thank my living Lord that I found an intending parent for my babies, I also give thanks to the breeder that directed you to me. I`m giving them out for adoption. They are 10 weeks old currently and Akc registered, They are well socialized with kids and well animinated they will be coming home with all their healthy papers up to date. They are $250each and if you want both puppies you would be paying $400 with shipping included. I got relocated to CALIFORNIA recently and could not take care of the babies anymore Because of my missionary work in here in CALIFORNIA. I want a great home for them because I love them so much. My job is not giving me time to take care of them that is why I want to get them out as soon as possible and I will be very happy if you will be the one to take one of both puppies as your baby. If you are interested kindly get back to me with your full shipping.


Information such as the following:
Full name...................
Address........................
Phone Number................
City.........................
State.......................
Zip Code.......................
Nearest Airport...........


As soon as you get back to me I would excuse myself from Church and make shipping arrangements Asap. Get back to me as soon as possible.

I want to set this person up to pick up the money and have them arrested. Too bad Im sure Nigerian Police would want to hear our stories.

Hello everyone..I am in the process of being scammed for a rottwieler puppy. The person still thinks I am seding them the money via western union. I want to know how I can get these bastards caught. The woman never spoke to me over the phone yet claimed she loved the puppy with her life. And that my son would be getting a great companion..A-HOLE. Never mentioned a fee just said they would be going to West Africa to do heart surgery on a 7year old boy and cannot keep him. He went from 4 weeks old to 5 months old in 2 days!! Remarkable. Now an "ISHIP Shipping Company" is telling me to contact the sender so I can know how to pay the $280 fee. I dont think you can send an empty box from Nigeria to the US for $280... What can i do to get these people stopped...??????

Hi. I have just fallen for the puppy scam. The breeder goes by the name of Ashly Comouxe and her email is shlcmx6@gmail.com. The transportation agency is Royal Paws Pet City in voyage, Ohio. The name of the person I wired money to is Tony Nickman at 512 Benson St, Camden, NJ, 08103. I exchanged several emails with the breeder, fell in love with the Brussels Griffon puppy she had for sale, and answered a lot of detailed questions about whether or not I was suitable to adopt her puppy. She used "ok" alot, almost after every sentence. WHen I asked how to proceed she asked for my address and nearest airport. Two hours later she emailed me to say the puppy was with the pet transportation agency which was waiting for me to send the payment so they could transport my puppy to me. I checked out the agency first and seemed very legit. So once they contacted me I wired them $350.00 american through western union. I then received an email from the agency waying the puppy was about to board the plane and they would get back to me with the delivery time. An hour later I got another email from the agency stating that my puppy was being held at the Ohio airport because his life insurance has expired two days prior and I had to send an additional $500.00 american to get him shipped to me or I would be facing criminal charges for animal violation. I realized at that point that I was definitely being scammed. so I emailed the owner and demanded that she either straighten things out on her end and get my puppy to me, OR reimburse my money, OR I would call my lawyer and the police. She responded that if I paid the 500.00 I would be reimbursed once the puppy arrived. Ofcourse I didn't send another cent. Now I am left with no puppy, and I'm out $400.00 canadian. To make matters worse, I had to explain to my five year old daughter why the puppy wasn't coming. She cried for an hour. I have been emailing the breeder all day with nasty comments, telling her I had the police and my lawyer looking for her. SHe ahs replied twice, once to say "yes, okay" and once to say "it is normal" meaing that being scammed is normal. I am outraged, saddened and I feel like a fool. Worst of all, my poor daughter had to learn a lesson like this far too young. THese people are disgusting and must be stopped. Please pass the word around. I don't want anyone else going through this.

I was just scammed by Ashly Comouxe as well as the Royal Paws Pet City Ohio (or possibly New Jersey). WE agreed on $350.00 for a Brussels Griffon puppy, she sent me several pics and a description, and when I was hesitant to wire the money she insisted it was the way it was done and gave me her word, even swore to god that I would get my puppy. Once the animal transport company contacted to me to say they had the dog and were ready to ship him, I wired the money. One hour later they emailed me again saying the dog was being held in OHio because his insurance expired and I would have to pay another 500.00 to get him released or I would face charges of animal violation. Ofcourse I refused to send another cent, emailed the owner several times demanding my money back, then I called the police and my lawyer. Seems nothing can be done. My five year old cried for an hour when I told her there wouldnt' be a puppy. THese people are scum Why can't something be done about this?

I received the email below in response to request for additional information about a Yorkie ad.

This has SCAM written all over it. BEWARE stay away from ad with contact info lindasmith1226@hotmail.com


Hello,

Thank you for the interest in my puppies. But i just sold the baby you saw on the ads to Mr. Amber from Florida .. Sorry for that, but you can get in touch with him. I sold the two puppies to him about Weeks ago and his name is Mr. Amber Burton, he called me some days ago that he had been transferred to West Africa for missionary work assignment. And also the puppies are there with him. His commitment with work of God could not enable him to be with the puppies often, and the climate condition of the country is too harsh for the puppy's health and he needs a caring parent who can adopt the babies back to United State of America.

You can contact him by E-mail Address. affectionate95@yahoo.com or affectionate95@hotmail.com

Request for the puppies he needs a caring and loving parent for, he will be so excited if he knows I directed you to him. Kindly notify me immediately the puppies are adapted back to U.S.A.
Best Regards,
Linda.
