i emailed someone about a free puppy and they sent me an email with answers to questions i didnt ask so i thought it was kinda fishy then i said i wanna see where this zip code is from and this webpage was the first to pop up. so im glad i didnt give them any information because they asked for my house number address and nearest airport but i asked them something else before i did anything else but now im not saying anything

By anna campoy ( on Thursday, October 23, 2008 - 7:48 am: Edit Post

so when they say that they someone had a free puppy and they send pictures is its still a scam, i have never done this before and i wanted to make sure before i send the money? so should i avoid this e-mail about a free puppy? or what should i do because i don't want to send the money and not get the puppy.

So yes......I too almost fell for the scam below is the email that was sent to me.......as well as the shipping info that they wanted me to Western Union the money to. I pray this reaches someone before they get taken advantage of....

Hello ,
My puppy is potty trained , home raised A.k.c registered , vet checked and will come with all papers needed . this puppy is very playful and is female .. She is also of absolute temperament as she loves playing with kids and other animals . She is also 15weeks old and is looking for a new home because we just moved into a new and non pet apartment in Anchorage/AK . You can have my puppy is you can afford just the transportation fee of $150 which you will pay directly to the transport company and not me to transport the puppy from Alaska to you .I am not out to look for money by selling my baby all i need is just a very caring and loving home for my baby where she will be well loved and spoiled to rotten .... Remember that you pay me no money but just the transport company so that you should feel secured of your money for transport . email me for more information if you want me to educate you more on how the transportation works and how you will pay
the transport company 5hours before delivery .also transport from Anchorage to your state will probably take 6-12hour

I to was nearly scammed, the ad was on Vivastreet, I have warned them and they are now barred..But they will return under another bogus name..At present they are trying to scam with Chihuahuas,British Bulldogs, Parrots and Shih Tzus, all apparently up for adoption and you only have to pay handling costs of delivery. They say there locations are in London,Devon and Leicester. They emailed me with a phone number, for which I was suspicious of and discovered it was in Cameroon.! The phone number being used at present is:- 00237 2479568. They even sent me a phony email of the dispatch company called ukpetsdeliveryman.com.! Please don't be sucked in by these idiots.! All they are after is 150.00 via moneygram.! As soon as I said I will pay cash on delivery, I never heard another thing from them..!!

Wow... thank God for your information. I was almost scammed too. I typed in the name of the person who I was to send my money to and this website pop up. They wanted me to send $200 to Western Union.... it didnt sound right. I check the company and it looked official but my gut was right. Many thanks...

Okay, so thanks i got the information , so do i go and do the registration tonight so she get on her way and arrive tomorrow morning or i do that in the morning? let me know because am free and can do that tonight it all depends on you. thanks and waiting ..

then this person starts texting me because i made the mistake of giving this person all my info and the txts are from a yahoo! account. the number was 92466501 and the username was anoma2000. they did this because their phone 'didnt work'. well they ask me if i wanted them to go ahead and place in my order or whatever andas you can already see by the emails something just didnt seem right. i started asking questions about where she lived and what she did for a living she said her name was kate gailes. and her username was michael kate because she was kate and her husband was michael so thats y that was her username, anyway she told me she worked for a new paper company in alaska. at first she said 'thats not important' so then i knew something was up. you know? why try and hide it?so of course more and more questions were asked and this is how the conversation went about:

michael kate:hello rodriguez am about the maltese puppy.

me:o ok hi! how are you?

michael kate:am fine and you?

me:great. yur up late?

michael kate: yea

michael kate:i just got back from work now

me:well i kinda would like to know a lil bit about you...and that sounds great!how would i send the other half to you tho? through mail?

me: o thats nice and yes thanks i appreciate it. and hows the whole thing going to work exactly?

michael kate: you will pay $50 to the transport place and when i do the registration i will also pay $50

me: and what about your $50 that im borrowing? how will they get that money?

michael kate: well when you get the puppy home then i will tell you how to send me back my money ok?

michael kate: ok

me:so..what now???

michael kate:just hold on

michael kate:let me forward a copy that i got of it ok?

[[i also fopund it odd that she coincidentily had a copy of the email the 'transport company' sent me so of course i got suspicious instantly]]

michael kate: they also sent me a copy of the email

michael kate: why all these questions? if you dont want her just let me know i will got get her and sent her to someone where there are many people that will love her and tale good care of her.

[[now i decided to act as my dad]]

me: this is crystals father asking the questions ma'am sorry if i am coming off as rude in any way. its just safe to know as much info as others know about you.

michael kate: okay. i told crystal last night that my cell had a little problem

me:ok. so will you please help us out by blessing us with your information as well?

michael kate:and my husband is out of town so his phone is not woprking so this is the only means for us to talk now.

michale kate:my adress is ingram st
anchorage,AK 99502 USA my number is 995478 4178 my husband is in dc and his number in dc is 202 629 9364

Me: ok so what are we supposed to do?

michale kate: did you guys get the email?

me:no ma'am

michael kate:ok just hold on. am sending you a copy now ok

me: ok

michael kate:i have sent it.

michael kate:have you gotten it.

[[i had gotten it and the email was petridedelivery@hotmail.com i figured it was fake and that anyone could have made it. they didnt even have a website!]]

me:sorry we are reading over it and it appears its just like a personal made email?do they have a website?

michael kate:no

me:really? how do you know its real then?

michale kate: what do you mean?

me:how do we know we are not getting scammed or something? my daughter really wants this puppy and i appreciate you paying the other half but i dont want to be disappointed you know?

michale kate: i am a devoted christian and i cannot collect money from someone without sending his/her puppy for it is wrong in the eyes of God. if i had the money i would have shipped her directly to you without asking for a dime from you.the problem is that i dont have the money right now that is why i asked for the money to pay for the flight to get her over there to yall wich i have already paid half

me: i understand its just that i googled the transportation place and there is literally nothing on the web about it!im just a little worried however im trying to give you the benefit of the doubt ma'am

michael kate:so i want you to be rest assured that your puppy will be in your arms befor you know it. i promise.

michale kate: you will get the puppy home. so how soon can you make the payment?

me:well what all is needed to be done ma'am?

michael kate: all you need to do now is just to locate the nearest western union right away and you go make the payment for the rest of the $50 okay?

me: ok in the email it says to ask for a senders form to send money to a name and adress what name and adress do we put down.

michael kate: mr.ndonwi anomah

[[i quickly noticed that the yahoo! username i as getting the texts from said anomah2000]]

me: wait. thats your username!

michael kate: no my username is michael kate

me:no in your yahoo! username anomah is in it.

michael kate: yes this is my son name, they have the same name

me:thats real conveniate

michael kate: so its a name anybody can have it

[[see the odd thing is i googled that name and the very first thing that popped up was puppy scammer which is the website we are on now]]

me:ok well i googled that name and right when the search went through the very first thing that popped up was puppy scammer with various info that was very similar to yours.

michael kate: its like you dont trust me. so please maybe you should just find the puppy somewhere else okay?

me:well now that i know all this info about you and your puppy scams im quite certain that i dont trust you and it has the same name email and everything!you do know that i am a police officer correct?

michael kate: yes

me: and you do understand that i am fully entitled to report and arrest you for all accounts of fraud and unhonest advirtising correct?

after this was sent there was no reply ever. i hope this drastic story has helped someone and i have definetly learned a lesson today. i am sorry to everyone that got hurt over the wrong choices of these people.
