Promise me that you would shower them with lots of TLC .And i would never like that my babies should end up in a shelter or rescue.,feel free to mail me.If you are willing to get them,please e-mail me asap so that i would stop all other contacts .If you have any more question to ask i will answer you truthfully and faithfully .I would like to ask you some few questions if you do not mind.

Don't know if anyone on here is familiar with Freecycle, but a tea-cup yorkie puppy was offered on my local freecycle group, immediately it was spotted as a scam, but some may not have known. Last year my mother was a victim, she was promised an English Bulldog Puppy, 8 weeks old, had a picture and everything, she was to send $300.00 for shipping and she would receive her puppy in 2 days. Well as you can guess she didn't receive it. She was devistated. She had had English Bulldogs in the past and after the last one passed away she longed for another and thought she found a good deal.

It is really sad a pathetic that a person or persons would do something like this to other people. It is unreal. So to you out there responsible for the scams, get a job rather than steal other peoples hard earned money. How could you live with yourself? That is okay though, you will have your judgement made. He will choose you eternal life after this one. I would hate to be in your shoes when Judgement Day arrives.

The E-mail address that was with this particular scam is tvs72@yahoo.com BEWARE of this e-mail!!!!!!

God Bless

you are all fools.
a yorkie puppy cost about $2500 and no shipping can cost you less than $500 but yet you go for a free puppy.
now tell me how you will not get scamped.

They are also trying to scam people who really are selling puppies. I was selling a purebred Shih-Tzu puppy in the local newspaper. A man called claiming to be deaf and that he wanted the puppy for his son for an xmas present. He then emailed the following telling us how he was going to pay and this company was going to ship the dog for him and he was going to send me a check for more than the puppy was worth and i should pay the shipping company, etc. The thing was he stated he lived in the same state as i did in a town two hours away from mine! I thought, after reading the email this cannot be real and emailed him back stating the puppy had already been sold. The info line stated:reserver the puppy for me. he went by the name larry white and his email address was whitelarry80@yahoo.com So to anyone selling a puppy in the paper or online, Beware!

The following is the actual email

Larry White to me
reserver the puppy for me

it was really nice hearing from you,
The reason I am sending you this email is to make final reconfirmation
and also to let you know that payment will be by certified Money Order.
In view of this I need you to email me any information that may be
required to send the Money Order, as I do not want to send the Money Order
to a wrong location lest they gets into the wrong hands. Regarding the
shipping, I have a company that takes care of the pick up of my
consignments for me and ship to my destination anywhere in the U.S.A, you do
not worry about shipping, the company will send down a representative to
arrange the sales documentation and the pick up from your end for
onward transfer to my destination.I also want to alert you on the fact that
you will be receiving an overdraft Money Order, which will cover the
money for the pickup (pickup and shipping to the final destination) as
well as the money to be paid to the
company that will take care of the pickup and the documentation with
you. So please, as soon as you receive the Money Order, go and cash
them immediately, deduct the money that accrues to you, and send the
balance to the Head Office of the company that handles the shipment , via
the nearest Western Union agent in your area. Deduct the Western Union
charges from the balance and send the remaining to the shipper
immediately . The Money Orders will be in your name to make it easier for you
to receive payment, deduct your money and send the balance via Western
Union as regards my earlier direction, please reconfirm your details
one more time I will give you the details of the company that you will
send the balance of the money to,once I get a reply and agreement that
you will send the money to the shipper via Western Union money transfer
immediately you cash the Money Order.Once the money is received by the
agent , th e shipping agent will contact
you immediately to arrange the documentation as well as the pick up
immediately. So in view of the above, here are some of the details I
will need for final issuance of the Money Order to you:

(1) Full Name
(2) Mailing address, no p.o.box please
(3) Your direct telephone numbers
(4) Acceptance of my offer

Once you get back to me with all the above, the Money Order will be
issued out immediately and it
will be sent to you .
Hope to hear from you immediately.

Regards,
White Larry
N.B.: I will pay you extra $50 to reserve this for me.

Hello I just scammed about a yorkie. The name of the person was Sis Dora Williams and her person who says that was shipping was Marcus Okoro from Lagos nigeria. Sis Dora said she has a yorkie for adoption and wants her to have a good home, and they show pictures to show that she is real and she says she is in the UK and would like to ship her to us so they want me to send 410.00 to this person in Nigeria for shipping which the company name is Prestige Freight. So of course silly that I am I wired the money and now they are saying it is going to cost another 250.00 to get her out of quarantine in the UK So I emailed her back and told her she needs to pay that part and I will pay her back if she sends me dog. I only paid half and my friend paid half so at least it was only 200 each rather than the 400 but I wish I had looked more and found these discussions before I had went and paid. Thank you for putting these up

MINIATURE BULL TERRIER SCAM IN DAVIE, FL!!!

Camilo Garzon a Miniature Bull Terrier Breeder out of Davie, Fl... Is selling Miniature Bull Terrier puppies without registration papers... He signed a contract with me, that he was going to provide the proper documentation to me...but, it never happened... Right now I'm in the process of taking him to Court... What I learned, never purchase a pure breed dog without seeing the parents registration information first!

I have kept the thought of a SCAM in mind the WHOLE time. Note my careful wordings and pleas for address, etc.
You have all of our information. May we have your home address and phone number as well? I am told by the airport people here we can simply pay them here if you give us the flight number you will be using. This will save us the Western Union fees, of course. And also, would make us feel better about sending money by Western Union to someone we don't have ANY way of contacting other than email!?! There are sooo many scams on the internet these days. We can't afford to lose our $250 plus Western Union fees.
Why is your name listed in email as Amanda Marshall yet you sign it Amanda Abongeh's? Is that a Nigerian name?
Please call me or I will call you. ASAP
Brandy is a female? Date of birth? We'll be getting the AKC papers for her as well? Brandy is not fixed so she can not have litters is she?
Don't worry about pictures monthly! Our daughter will most assuredly keep you in plenty of them until you beg her to stop! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got ripped on the same deal. So talked so sweet to me knowing My wife and I was almost in the dumps but to make my wife happy I found an ad stating that a woman was giving away some old english bulldog puppies. All I had to do was send her the shipping cost. I thought we had a perfect deal. Boy was I wrong. I lost 250 dollars.
