WOW,,,,i am so glad that i talked with a friend about a freecycle ad i emailed someone about for a free 11week old female yorkie.she emailed me back and said that the yorkie has been adopted out. then 2 days later she emails me saying that the person has changed her mind and because of her new job she couldnt take care of her the way she needed to be taken care of.and sent me two pics of her too.. she looked so sweet.my friend said that it sounded like a scam maybe, because, why would someone from west africa,nigerea respond to a ad in normanfreecyle.com for a puppy from so far away.so he told me to copy and paste the email address, and search it, and it came up about a "NIGEREA PUPPY SCAM" from the news.i am soooooo mad and hurt at the fact that some one could jepordize someones money and time and feelings for anything.and on that note too, that we may also no longer be able give away animals on freecycle.com.we have a overpopulation of animals that need homes badly,for you to do that too.SHAME ON YOU.....AND I WILL PRAY FOR YOU....AND I FEEL FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DID GET TAKEN IN THIS SCAM..SO WRONG OF THEM TO DO.

I just got this from freecycle too.

Hi,
Oh!You are a little bit late to enquire on the carley and I wish like to let you know that the baby was for adoption but she was adopted by Mrs Laura who lives in West africa,Nigeria but I think you could still have the puppy 'cos she recently phoned and told me that she intend to offer her out[re-home] due to the nature of her new job and said she couldn't have time to take good care the puppy.She is ready for a new home.

You can reach her at kuron2148@gmail.com .

Hi,
I received the email about carley,She is just 11weeks female yorkieshire terrier puppy and prefer dry food.She is lovely,adorable,passionate and affectionate puppy and sleep with me in the room.She is home trained puppy and house broken,use to children and is AKC registered and the shots is still up to date,She is extremely playful and loves to be held and go with you everywhere!
She is up to date on all vaccinations and comes with the health records, registration papers but I wish to get you informed that I will only offer her to someone who is pet caring,who could take good care of her and someone that will respond to me whenever I ask of her well being though it is not my intention to re-home her but due to the relocation from work I decided to find her a new loving home.
Kindly send your full name,phone number and desired delivery address or the nearest airport where you will like to receive her so that I could go and enquire on the shipment and get back to you with more informations,if you can pay for her airfare.

Laura.


I was going for it until she asked for me to pay for the air fare. I went to look up what it would cost and found the scam sites. I think this is the reason why our freecycle manager does not want to post free animals anymore.

There are several english bulldog puppy ads in post standard/Syracuse.com. They are all scams. They are all claiming to be missionaries. They are claiming they have to find the puppies new homes. I was so appalled that they would use God and missionary work to deceive. Please beware.

She is still in business! I Was just sent this today, March 23, 2008.

I will like you to know that i am a woman of God and i will never cheat nor lie to you. And i will like you to know that you are doing me a great favor by wanting to have my wonderful babies into your home. How will i
scam someone that is helping me to solve my problem? For it is written, what shall it profit a man who gains the whole world and looses his soul. Nothing will i derive from scam on you. I have been serving My living God the creator of the whole universe for over 18 years by praying for nation, helping the needy and most especially preaching the gospel which got me down to Africa. My dear, I assure you that you will never regret dealing with me and i assure you that you will never regret having this puppies.
The transaction could be arranged depending on how fast you want my babies to get to you. I would want them to leave as soon as possible.

I have called the shipping agent and they will be coming pretty soon for the pick up, meanwhile they need your information below:

I assure you that they will be alright as this is not their first time of being shipped.

Hey I am so glad I found this site because I was about to spend $400 to get me this puppy I found that was suppose to be free but when I started to corresponded with this lady I got a little weary of it so I researched all the puppy scams going on and then I found out the truth. Here is the e-mail she sent me.



Hello
I am Mrs Reverend Lisa Smith. I was directed to you from the breeder of my puppies that you are interested in them. I really appreciate and God bless you for your interest. I got my puppies from the breeder while i was in the state. But i got transferred to west Africa on a missionary work of ALMIGHTY GOD. I have been praying to my living GOD to get a carring home for my wonderful puppies and i strongly believe you are my answered prayer. I also give thanks to the breeder that directed me to you. They are full breed. They are 2 months 3 weeks currently and akc registered, Vet check, health certificate and health guarantee. All their shots are up to date. I got transfered to west Africa recently and could not take care of the babies anymore. I want a great home for them because they are my real babies. They are 100% healthy and i don't want anything to happen to them. That is why i want to get them out soon. The weather here is not conducive for them. I will be very happy if you will be one to take them as your babies. I have male and his name is Andy while the female name is Kate, they are both very good with kids and other animals very well and love to play a lot this is one of their many character, I never wanted to sell them but the weather here in West Africa is not helping matter at all. If you are interested kindly get back to me asap so that the babies can be on their way to their new home as soon as their shipping arrangement is concluded! They will be giving to you free. You will only pay for their shipping fee which is 400 dollar each. See their picture on attachment.
Get back to me soon and let me know if you are interested.
Thank you and GOD bless you.



She even went as far as calling me on the phone to tell me that she was glad she found such a wonderful person like me to take her babies.............EVERYONE PLEASE JUST WATCH OUT. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is!!!!
