    Ive got an ad up to rehome a dog and had tons of scams, i live in scotland my wife is too ill to look after dog but were in cameroon at the moment, the dog is up for free adoption, but you need to pay shipping, i always go along with them see how far they go, like i say will you send me the dog first then i will send money.there reply is oh were not here to rip people off.yeah whatever:rolleyes:

    you can tell scams straight away.notice pictures of pups there always surrounded by flowers or in pots etc, the PRICE, check there other ads guarenteed,they will have loads of pups up,and destination is never the same

    Agree with all of above!!!!!!! we were recently looking for a pup (king charles) and came accross soooooooo many scammers - not bright enough to use an original pic though (if you google the particular breed - you can see most of the images used in the ads on google images!) - I contacted the advertising websites and reported the suspect lsitings - which to be honest was pretty ineffectual as about ten more ads appeared for each one taken off.

    In the end we contacted rescue centres and breed specific rescue centres to find a dog needing a home....we were also able to get some great advice etc. which has been a great support.

    I have heard of so many people being scammed and particuarly dreadful story of an older gent being ripped off for around £1000 (pretty much his entire savings!) - lets do all we can to stop thess idiots!!!!!!!

    Hello,
    Thanks for the mail and your interest toward my lovely babies. They
    are male and 2 female, 11weeks 2days old,They are by Names Frank,Tina
    and Doris.Before we proceed these puppies are well socialized with
    kids and pets like cats,Very friendly with people,They love to play
    with their toys,And they have an outstanding temperament,These puppies
    represents the highest standard of pure breed puppies...They very

    Certificate of Veterinary Inspection ,Micro-Chipped (in case ever lost
    or stolen) Current on all vaccinations,Wormed ,puppies Packet
    (Toys,Vaccination schedule and history, Crate Training info., Potty
    Training info.) Already diaper Trained Travel Crate with delivery,they
    will be coming with health certificate,KC registration papers.To begin
    I will start asking you some questions.
    -Are you a breeder?
    -Do you have kids?
    -Are use to puppies?
    -Are you sure that you are going to take care of any of my babies?
    -Gift me a Brief Description about your Environment?
    -Do you have a vet doctor?
    -Were exactly are you located? i am giving out them for free
    since they were owned and taken care of by my late daughter whom i
    lost to a drunk driver two weeks ago. Due to the mobile nature of my
    work since i work with EDICEF,i have relocated to Belfast and now i am
    in seminar that would last for 3months and it will not be possible for
    me to take proper care of the puppies which was a sole responsibility
    of my late daughter. They really do remind me of her sad memories all
    the time i look at them and hurt deeply. So, my greatest desire is to
    find someone who can properly take care of the puppies and if you can
    i will be so grateful, i can arrange for delivery if you cannot come
    right up here for the pick. Delivery is sure will be moderate since we
    spent just too little bringing the puppies up here.. If this is ok by
    you, i will immediately need the following details in order to drop
    off the puppies as soon as possible at the delivery agency so that
    delivery can be done to your home soonest.
    Names in full..........................
    Home address.......................
    City/Town.....................
    Post Code..........................
    Land line number............................
    Mobile number......................
    Be reminded that these puppies are for free and all you will have to
    do is to pay £250 only for the delivery of each of the puppies to the
    delivery agency which will deliver the puppies to your home. My prayer
    is that you love and care for these puppies just as my daughter did
    and i will be always great-full to you if you should.. Do let me know
    if all is fine. best regard,I have just attach some
    pictures of the babies,
    Thanks

    IF YOU SEARCH THE EMAIL ADDRESS IN GOOGLE YOU WILL SEE JUST HOW MANY ADS THE HAVE POSTED!!

    mine and my partner search for a boxer goes on !!

    Hello. My name is Mickey. I am brand new to the internet and I really don't understand how buying anything on the internet works. I want to buy things for my lurchers but I don't know how you are meant to know whether you are being scammed or not. I find it hard to buy things in the pet shop as my local shop is a tiny village shop. I need new coats for my dogs and they don't fit into the normal dog shape. There are loads of lurcher coats on the net that I would love to buy if I knew it was honest. Am I being silly? Is it easy to get scammed like this or are these two different things. sorry for being so ignorant. And yes, I am actually serious!

    I too have had loads of stuff off ebay and have never had any trouble Mickey :)

    I was helping my Mum look for a puppy/young dog recently and I too came accross scammers on the websites asking for delivery fees and offering free puppies, i'll copy in some of the replies i got but remove any identifying info...

    "Hi

    all i can do for you is to arrange for a home delivery over to you with a delivery agency here in XXXXXX and that is going to cost you 200pounds which you would pay to the delivery agency and that would be all you have to pay as i am giving the puppy out for adoption to only a lovely home so you would have to promise me that you would take good care of the puppy,so here are the infor mations i would need for the delivery of the puppy over to you

    YOUR FULL NAMES
    CITY
    HOUSE ADDRESS
    POSTCODE
    PHONE NUMBERS

    this i would give to the delivery agency to contact you on the payment and delivery schedule of the puppy.

    my regards"

    And another...

    "hello ,
    > Nice reading from you about your full contact over these puppy , they
    > are pure and 12weeks old breed puppy , they are well potty trained ,
    > love to play
    > with kids and other their new home . i am looking for a home that is

    > i am located in x x x x
    > please i would as well advice you give me a call to confirmed that
    > you received my mail.
    > thanks"


    It frightened me a bit because I began wondering if I could trust anyone... luckily I found my Mum and Dad a gorgeous puppy from a lovely family who were moving and couldn't look after him any more but this experience has certainly taught me a lesson as I didnt come across anything like this when I got my 2 girls...

    My website, Pet Friendly Hotels Pet Passports Quarantine Immigration information for Pet Travel has been represented as doing the shipping for these Cameroon folks. Some people are smart enough to email us before sending money so we can warn them of the impending scam. These scammers move around quickly and many times when I have attempted to contact them, their email address has already been taken down. They oftentimes pose as missionaries. One gal we heard from was advertising a lost dog and they said that they had found her dog, but it was in another country and she would have to pay shipping to get it back. We hear from many people who have been taken. It is very sad.

    Now I understand that that scammers are misrepresenting themselves of owners of vacation rentals and collecting deposits. People show up for their vacation, and the owner is stuck with a real problem.

    It is a good idea to pay for something over the internet with a credit card. You have recourse if you pay this way, and the chances are the person you are dealing with has good credit. If you wire money, you have no recourse. These scammers originated from Cameroon, but they have moved to the UK. We also see them represent themselves from other countries such as France. Their emails are grammatically incorrect as they do not speak our language well. They also claim to use Pet Travel as a transport company. This is untrue. Pet Friendly Hotels - Pet Passports - Pet Quarantine - Pet Immigration has nothing to do with these people. They are using our logo without permission. Beware of these solicitations. They will keep asking for money and, at the end, there is no pet.

    Does this sound like a scam? Its an email reply my friend recieved:

    Hi there

    i have noted your interest in one of the female puppies you are first in line for a female so should there be one or more females you will have pick of the litter.
    I will email you soon as her pregnancy begins showing and again when she goes into labour showing pictures etc.
    i will also need to know as we prefer to have our pups microchip before leaving us if you require this done it is extra but very worth having done.

    i will save your email address so i know who to contact but i need to know for definate first if you definatly want one of the pups as they rehome quite fast once they are ready to leave.

    I also ask that once the pups are around 2 weeks old and have bonded with the mum that you come see the chosen pup on a regular basis ie once per week or fortnight which in turn lets the puppy bond with yourself and get to know you also before moving to her final home .
    At the first meeting I will tell you everything you need to know and answer all your questions as best I can.
    There would be an initial deposit to pay as well as this would help us towards any vet fees etc.deposit £100 non refundable should you change your mind.

    the remaining balance has to be paid before you took the pup away.

    mabe, can't really tell.

    What you really need to watch out for is if the seller moves to the isle of wite and want the puppies imported to your home.
     
  13. this is a massive post but worth reading if buying dogs online

    im looking for a mini long hair cream or light red dachshund and emailed 2 folk
    and was abit suspish
    firstly the names
    ronald wilson and jack smith? sounds like somthing you would make up if you were foreign and trying to sound english, like pierre du sexyface if youre english and trying to be french.

    secondly
    the spelling was very poor and odd- i thought maybe its some one whos not very good with computers at first, then thought .. no clearly not
    so i googled the ronald email (which ill post in abit so you can swerve it) and hes listed LOADS of dogs

    3: he said he has gone on a business trip and taken the dogs but would like to show me if i can get to aberdeen(yeah defos :confused1: given they listed in yorkshire) and if not he will need my personal details to send the puppy to me

    i replied to the first email and answerd their questions and such about what my job is like etc. then when the second one came in from jack smith and it was pretty much identical my suspicions were undoubtably confirmed. basically the same email.

    here are the emails:

    There are many genuine sales online. Many due to family illness from what I've seen.
     
  17. im looking to buy online because i cant afford the 900 pedigree breeder prices around where i live and no one in my area has any non ped dachshund minis so im looking online so i can travel to pick one up
    and there is a big difference between 900 and 450 even if you have the money to spend- im not botherd about having a ped i just want a mini longhair dachshund and they are proving rather hard to get hold of

    ps. i posted the same post to a 'fraud watch' website and got a horrible reply so thank you for not being morons on this forum and defending the scammers as they cant speak english because its not their first language.
    they shouldnt be scamming people in the first place!

    I know! I makes me so angry! Too many people breed thinking it will be easy money then they come along, realise that its hard work and sometimes there isn't buyers! Grrr
