Morris Burns tried to scam my fiance and I also! I found an ad in our local newspaper for an AKC registered English Bulldog for $350. When I called the number listed, it was a church with an automated answering machine. When I emailed him (He used the name Charles Morgan), he replied with the same story. He said him and his wife were on a Christian mission trip in Nigeria and that he would have the dog shipped to us if we transfered him the money through a Western Union account. He also included 3 photos of an English Bulldog puppy. We were a little skeptical, so I googled the name Charles Morgan and found a Charles Morgan who in fact was a minister along with a photo. I also googled the name and address of the church in Nigeria he gave us, and it immediately pulled up the church website... So it seemed ligit. So my fiance set up a Western Union account. Right before he sent the money, he realized he asked us to send the money to Morris Burns. So I googled 'Morris Burns Nigeria' and found this website. Thank God I did, because we were only about 5 minutes away from sending the money. This guy is GOOD. He does his research, and finds identities all over the US that matches his story. And to think, if he is actually PAYING money to have ads put in newspapers, how much money is he making off of scamming people?

It still carries on, even in the UK. Recently we were looking for a Corgi and on one site (The Sun Local) every advert was a scammer!

Take heart and remember a few points to avoid the scams.

1) Anybody who makes a lot of spelling mistakes, including the breed of dog should always be avoided. As should those who cannot structure a sentence properly. 99% of dog breeders are native to the country the dog is advertised, if what is written is unreadable and makes no sense, it makes no sense to deal with them.

2) Anyone who sends you an exhaustive questionnaire probably is not worth dealing with either (especially when it is full of number 1s). A proper breeder would prefer to talk to you about it.

3) Never pay money to the carrier company unless you check with them that this person has them ready to send. Insist that they use a carrier you know and can contact.

4) Try and pick the pup up personally. It is best to do this, it is best to meet the pup and parents to ensure you get on.

5) Check the numbers they ask you to dial, chances are any mobiles are not real mobiles but call charge phones who are more expensive to call and will not exist after the money has been paid.

6) Never ever be pressured into buying a dog, even if they threaten to kill it, eat it, nail it to the freeway. It does not exist so they will look darned silly nailing nothing into the black top....

7) Ask someone who owns one of the dogs you want where they got theirs. People are generally happy to share such information. Look for local breed societies on the web.

Obey the above and your cash and puppy will be much safer.

I was just checking online about a freecycle.org offer for a free dog. Wondering if it was a scam.

I was scammed! I was scammed $430.00! That is not including the shipping fee. I should have known! His email was in fact austinryan60@yahoo.com. The name was Morris Burns. I feel completely stupid. I cannot believe I fell into his trap. He even used God's good name! I just wanted to know if anyone knew what happens next. I found out about everything and have told him through email that I cannot believe he would do that to someone. However, I am a little scared because he has my number and address. Does anyone know what could possibly happen next or if I should contact anyone?

I also answered a newspaper ad. Man is posing as a pastor and says he had to leave with the dogs to go on a missionary trip for his church in Africa (Nigeria). He wanted me to send $375 by Western Union. His dogs were 2 little Yorkies. This in Louisiana.

Isn't there a way that the IP address can be tracked to determine where the emails are generating and prosecute? Where would I go to even start that?


2009-07-16 10:41:53 -
Please note: this guy is now using the email address austinryan60@yahoo.com. Spread the word!!


2009-07-16 10:40:09 -
In addition to saintforchrist@gmail.com, this guy is now also using email address austinryan60@yahoo.com. Please beware!!

Hi
I thought i had explain everything to you. I cannot confirm the information because the flight has not been reschedule. I can only reschedule the flight when i have the adoption papers as the South african custom needs to know where the puppy is going and who is going to be her new owner. All these information is indicated on the adoption papers. Without these they will consider it as smuggling and will not permit me to reschedule her flight..
Please i give my word that i will give you the details as soon as i have collected the papers.










There is still more then this.. we have also comfirmed with this scammer he is a scammer.. we have contacted our local P.D and they gave us a number to people call "PHONE BUSTERS" there number is 1-888-495-8501
