Contact information:
Pet Transport Agency
Cameroon
I received an email from a woman claiming to live in the Yukon. She said she had 2 Chihuahua puppies that she was wanting to get rid of. So i seen some pictures and chose the one i wanted. She said she would go to the transporting agency and register the dog. She said it would be 150$ to ship him to my door but because i wanted them to hold him for a few days i would have to pay 50$ to cover his food while they had him. So i received an email from pet_air_transport_agency@hotmail.com saying :

"This shipping and home delivery will cost $150 and the feeding fee of $50 has to be paid now therefore the payment required from you on satuday is $100 fore delivery of your puppy .
In this regard, we wish to inform you that, due to high amount of abuse, we have canceled our on line payment method, and all payments below $1500 are now done via WESTERN UNION directly to our International Affairs Wire transfer agency in British-Cameroon and the MTCN < Reference Number >email to us immediately payment is done for confirmation."

So i did just that and went and sent the 50$ to cameroon via wester union. I then sent the MTCN number and they replied, thank you your payment has been confirmed, and we shall be waiting for you to notify us on saturday for the delivery of your puppy. I then responded, shouldnt you be telling me when you will be dropping him off ? and they responded we will drop him off at 10am on saturday. I really now think that this is a scam and that i will not be getting my puppy on saturday, ...please be where of people out there like this. i should have not been so trusting. but i was and now i pay for it !!

Of course it's a scam, have you been living in a cave for the past 10 years? I think the the #1 safety rule is don't drive with your eyes closed, but only slightly behind that at #2 is never send money via western union to someone you don't know, especially if it's outside the united states, and DEFINITELY not if it's going to Africa.

Hi,

Thanks for the mail and understanding. Well I'm glad to hear that your house is full of animal lovers and I really know that Lizzy will be well cared for. Well I am currently in the Malaysia and she is here with me and i can have her transported to you. It will cost you 300 MYR. So if you're willing to pay 300MYR, then I'll need the following so i can take her to the pet transport office tomorrow and register her for the next available flight. The information the Agency will need will be as follows:

Your full name ...

Once I have this information, I will begin preparation to take Lizzy to the agency in the morning tomorrow and register her. All you are going do is to pay the 300 MYR to the agency OK. She also Has her Kitten passport and she has been vaccinated and dewormed, micro chipped. She will come along with the following:

- Transfer of ownership form of a certificate that I do.
- Food menu.
- Kitten passport

I am so upset!
For three days now I have been talking to this so called nice lady, she said her daughter died and I felt so bad for her! Gross and disgusting! How could anyone be so sick! and lie about something like that.
It got as far as them calling me and asking me to send them money..
When I asked for the agency name he got upset with me.. you know what.. I was soo excited.. Losers!!! Seriously they should get a real job.
This is a picture of the cutest kitten ever they sent me.. who wouldn't want this? And to think... the trouble they went through to set this all up! Again, I'll say it... LOSERS!!!

By the way, when I told them that I wanted to ship the puppy via American Airlines and have a friend look at the dog, they never responded to me again.

I've been getting both 'text msgs to my cell phone and email's from 'a Pet Transportation Agency' located in Cameroon, Africa. Regarding my ferret that has been taken over there by someone that had been in my town, 3 weeks ago, and they supposively took our ferret he found loose in his yard, nearby our home, and said he wasn't aware that 'we had placed any signs up for the return of a missing/lost ferret back in March, ) and he just happened to see my post on Facebook offering a reward for her return. He said he had taken the ferret with him while he went to Cameroon to work on a job site and wasn't sure when he would get back to the US, in order to return our Ferret in person, so offered to have her transported instead. My daughter was doing the reply texting back to him, on Sunday April 8th 2014, when he told us this information...so she told him, well she knew her ferret wasn't in Africa, so when he returned from Cameroon, he could call us back and we could meet at the Local Walmart Shopping Center, here in Kokomo, IN. His reply: OK.
Then on Monday morning, the 9th*, whomever he is, Mr. Anomymous, won't tell us his name, ) starts sending me text' messages stating he can have my ferret transported via the local Air Transportation Service Agency for a fee of $70. So I asked him via Text msg., Can you send me a video via your cell phone so that I can confirm that the ferret you have is infact, my ferret? I never get a response to that question, instead he keeps saying that he's already registered her and she's in the custody of the Air Transportation Agency, and they are wanting to know when I will make payment via Western Union, per their email listing of Names to recieve the payment in Cameroon, Africa. I have over 200 text messages (now from him) on my cell phone, as of the 21st of April. And I have 12 email messages from this 'Pet AirTransportation Agency' out of Cameroon, Africa that keeps asking when or if I will pay the $70 air-fare for my ferret or not. So far I haven't sent them anything, except asking for a confirmation video to show the Ferret's body markings and to proove that she's Healthy and Unharmed. I've asked this 3x and the Pet Transportation agency is acting like they don't understand what I am asking them to do. As all they want to know is if I will pay for the Air-fare for that Ferret? I keep telling them that if it was our ferret then the person that placed her in their care did not have our permission to remove her from the USA soil, so in fact, they maybe held responsible for criminal charges once our pet is returned to our home. They act like they don't understand that comment either. And whomever that is sending those requests don't understand how the English language is spelled much, as it appears 'chopped and/or like as the Spanish lingo appears, when translated into English, Spanish lingo=backward English when it is translated in typewritten spelling. Example: To Go, Spanish: Go, to, (or) Go Where, as in 'Donde es', actually translated as: Where to?
Just simple things like that, their translation isn't exact to the American English in that respect...so you can see that they don't know how to type it correctly.
Well if they ever do send me a video of our Missy Loo, and it is her, I'll be shocked, but also relieved that she's not dead somewhere else and just hadn't been found or returned locally. So If they do in fact have Our Ferret, the other question I kept asking was: How did you get her past the 6 week Custom's Animal Quarantine? (After he got into the European countries.) Because our ferret had not been missing that long, and it would be really interesting to find out how he managed to sneak a pet (of any-type) between countries?
She'd been missing 3 1/2 weeks, or: 24 days when we got the 1st 'text message, from the caller at a cell number starting with '360.'
If anyone else is being contacted in the same way I would appreciate some feedback please. Thx.

Wow... Luckily I do research about this. I also received the same when I wanted to adopt a puppy. The original post was located in Malaysia. When the lady replied me said she was presently in Thailand.

This is what she asked from me.
1st mail:

Thanks for the interest in my Puppies.

I have a Male and Female french bulldog Puppies available.

These little litter are called molly and Tina.
They are raised in my home with children, already spoiled.
So they had the best care available.
The Puppies available have the following details:

Age: 12 weeks old
Recognition: Registered
Health Problems: no health problem
Living Conditions:They can live any where.
Trained: well trained and home trained.
Health Condition: excellent in health condition, vet
checked, registered and confirmed health guarantee.

Where are you located?
Do you have a vet?
Have you ever had a pet before?
Does your home favors pet?
Do you have kids?

They shall come along with all their papers.
The reason, why i am giving out these Puppies for adoption is that,
I am very busy and hence could not make up time to stay with the pets.
Nobody is ever at home to take good care of the Puppies .

So, i truly needs a good loving and caring home for the Puppies.
Here are recent pictures of the Puppies, when next i read from you .

Can you tell me more about your self ?


2nd mail:
Hello,

My name is Amedea Debora and i am presently in Thailand.

Although we are located far apart, it is still possible for the puppies to get to your home address.

I can send the puppies to you, through a pets delivery agency, and you pay only for the delivery cost to the agency .

From my inquiries at Pets Transporters Agency here in Thailand the delivery cost from Thailand to any home address in your location will cost you RM 600 for one puppy and RM 1200 for the two puppies. And it will be delivered at your door step after about 7-8 hours .

For the puppies to be delivered directly at your home, the data the agency would need from you are :

-Names in Full...in other to change the ownership transfer papers to your name.

-Home address... so the agency can locate your home.

-City... ...for the delivery
Van to your direction.

-Post code... ...to back up your address.

-Phone number... ..for direction.

The puppies will be delivered with all Current vaccinations,
Veterinarian examination, Health certificate, Health guarantee,
Pedigree papers and all other necessary documents .

i also need the above information to process the paper works of the puppies with my attorney, that is the transfer of ownership and adoption certificate, so you will claim full ownership and be recognized as a legitimate owner of the puppies.

If all is confirmed, send the required data for us to proceed with delivery .

So once i have your full delivery data i promise you that the puppies will be deliver directly at your door step. Waiting for your reply.

Thanks

On this case usually they are from afrika place named cameroon.
I saw this one lady advertise about letting go her maine coon cat because currently She study in DUBAI and no time to take care of her "pure breed maine coon cat" .
She going to give away her cat for free to me. But i must pay for the
Transportation fee MYR 690.
So the transportion pet agency call me in the next morning, they said cannot process without payment.
Those people who call me not even sound people from dubai. They sound more like nigerian people.
So i rushly went to the western union to transfer the money.
I ask the counter lady is it the money going to dubai? The lady answer me its going to wired to africa.
So i have this really big doubt feeling bcause the owner said she currently in dubai and why the heck she using the africa airlines.
That way too far away. Doesnt make any sense at all.
So i decided to cancel adopt the cat and went home straight away.
I was lucky not to get scam by those fuckers. Thanks god.
Aftet that i do some google research and found out they are so many scamming activities there and so many victim.
BEWARE OF THE ADOPTION PETS ONLINE THAT USING TRANSPORTATION STRAIGHT TO YOUR HOME. ITS TOTALLY SCAM!!! THEY USUALLY FROM DUOALA CAMEROON.
YOU CAN RECOGNIZE THEM THRU PHONE CALL BECAUSE THEIR ENGLISH ARE REALLY BAD.
