Pet Transport Agency / Scam
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 !!
