Subject: About My Bulldog Puppies.

Thank you very much and i'm very very happy to read from you about your response on taking good care of the babies. they are 10 weeks old and both home trained and outdoor trained also playful with other animals and kids. The male named (Max) weigh 10 Pounds and the female named (Bella) weigh 9 Pounds and will weigh big when fully grown. they are both A K C registered and shots are given up to date and both home trained. both of them are my darling sweetheart and super spoiled! They both have a sweet personality and loves to play and be carried around.
But i'm very sorry to tell you that it is too late for you to get the babies now. What really happened was that i just left the state for Africa in some few days ago after i posted the the ad on the newspaper and before i left, i did not get any response from anybody that could take very good care of them for me. So i got a missionary call from our missionary headquarters in Africa, then i have to bring the babies along with me here in Africa since i couldn't find someone to adopt them before i left the state.
I'm still willing to give the babies out to someone who can take very good care of them for me forever. All papers will accompany the puppies when shipped to you, Due to our long staying over here in africa, and the bad weather my Wife and I have concluded to get good home and care for our babies. We are not charging or selling them to you for money but to save their life's saved and care for them so this means that, you and i will be paying for the shipment of the puppies to you. they are VET checked, but right now we are in Africa on a Christian mission with my wife and 3 kids together with Bella and Max,
we have the puppies right here with us.
We are going to ship to you via a Dispatch Courier Service Company with Express Delivery on next day delivery, if you are really interested in having my little babies, i want you to get back to me with your full Name , Home Address, direct contact phone number and name of the nearest Airport to you. Please if you know that you are not capable of taking very good care of my babies, do not reply me because i am giving them out because of bad condition and we're
spending months for the christian mission and i don't want Bella and max to die in this bad weather. And because we don't have time to take care of them due to the missionary work before us here. They are priceless to me,therefore i am giving both for free, so i will like you to get back to me with the Above information i can find out shipping cost to your Nearest Airport, and we both responsible for the shipping cost
I've attached pics of Bella and Max.
Thank you and God bless you and your family.
Yours in Christ.
Pastor Chris Evans.

Please be careful with newspaper ads for english bulldog puppies for sale for $500 or less. This is a scam today there were 5 ads in az republic for english bulldogs less then $500. I called all the numbers listed and they were disconnected except one was to a business. DO NOT SEND THESE PEOPLE MONEY!!! If anyone knows any information pleas report the scam to the attorney generals office so we can stop these people from steeling our hard earned money!!!!

I answered a add in my local news paper about Free english bulldog puppies. only was to reach them was e-mail so I emailed & when he answered said was a pastor & just left IA for Africa & the weather was to bad for the 9wk old puppies 1 male & 1 female and didnt have anyone to leave them with in the states so all we needed to do was pay part of the shipping 400. of the 895. I asked if I could pay the company on this end he gave me info nut had to call Ken Wood with dispatch courier service & I couldnt find anything out about this co. so I just email Chris Evans that I will take the puppies if he wants to pay to have them shipped to me & when I recived them I would send him the money other wise forget it. I also called my local newspaper & infored them of this add & they are going to ck into the matter

Okay, so this is the latest ad......
The puppy advertised has been bought by one of our customer and the puppy is doing quite well with her and her family according to her recent update me about the pup welfare at her home.But it is very unfortunate that the puppies i advertised has just been bought by one of our customer from the USA because our puppies was rushed this month So i would like to refer you to one of our customer,i want to refer you to Rev Geoffrey Rybiski he is a very good customer,He bought two puppies from me as well.He has been transferred to (Ike re,Ekiti) in continuations to his Missionary Work.He went there with the two puppies he bought from me.Unfortunately,(Ike re-Ekiti) is not the place for these types of dogs.He contacted me few days ago so that i could find a caring and loving parent that will adopt the pups to a caring and lovely home in the USA.

Contact Rev Geoffrey Rybiski asap and tell him I refereed you to him He will be excited if he knows that i directed you to him.

Write Rev Geoffrey Rybiski on his email address Below:

Get me informed as soon as you adopt the pups from him.
Best Regards

Same story... different names.... same picture and ad....

so i just looked on the newspaper ads and the same picture is up again that was used to scam my friend with bulldog puppies. Nice try dumb asses ashley celestino/reverand noble/stephen are at it again. Avoid the 500 dollar christmas puppies on the arizona republic website

2009-11-13 23:17:22 -
ashley celestino,reverand william noble jr, and stephen from the london health organization are the latest and greatest to hop into the puppy scam. I responded to Ashleys ad in the paper, when she responded back she gave me a sob story about reverand noble jr. having to move to nigeria with the two puppies and now needing to get rid of them. I emailed the reverand and he kept making up price after price i needed to pay him because he tried to ship me"his babies" as he referred to them, and they were stuck in london and needed to be quarantined and insured and i needed to scan a copy of my drivers license to stephen at the london health organization, otherwise they were going to send the puppies to the zoo. Needless to say after i looked up this website i decided to tell them to go to hell.

2009-11-05 23:05:47 -

I believe I'm in the middle of a scam right now. So far I have sent 200.00 for the shipping fees. Now they just told me that they are being held in London and that I have to pay another 750.00 to get them out of London. The are 2 English Bulldogs for free in the paper. The name is Rev Johnson Carey.
