    Beware of these scams

    From the article

    The ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) reports that internet and classified ad scams for pets for sale or free have elevated dramatically as con artists take advantage of the national media campaign to put a stop to animal abuse. Noble organizations, certainly worthy of national media accolades for offering to foster pets belonging to military personnel deployed to the Middle East have given the con artists the opportunity to create their ignoble scams.

    Frequently an ad will warn prospective buyers that if their pet isn’t adopted soon, it will have to be euthanized. Some will even say the pet is “free to a good home,” if the buyer will only pay, in advance, of course, the shipping cost. One cautious buyer chose to use Western Union to transfer money to a seller, but once she emailed him the code to retrieve the money, she never heard from him or succeeded in finding him again. He presented himself as a missionary going overseas to do good works for needy natives in India.

    It's sad there are people who take advantage of these things. Sad.

    Its such an ungoing scam, I have had two try to rope me into it when we were looking for our next puppy breeder, offering us one of theirs, but we knew instantly that it was a scam.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    I am glad you didn't fall for it. Although I would like to claim that I never have, I have been sucked into these scams a couple times. It's just sad that there are people who take advantage of these sort of things.

    If you would do an analysis in here, this is obviously scam. They should not provide any legal details or files regarding this issue. It's not good to hear that he has been involved on the said scam.
