BEWARE OF PUPPY SCAM!!!

Got a new, young, furry love in your life? This is the place for you to ask all of your questions-big or small! Just remember that you are receiving advice from other dog owners and lovers... not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a vet or behaviorist! Most important is to remember to have fun with your new fur baby.

I am in Dallas TX and while reading the Sunday paper ran across an classified ad for an 11 week old pup for $300.00. Needless to say the hairs on my neck stood up on end and I emailed the "person" asking for details....The following is the reply I received.

Shower of blessings to you and thanks for your interest in my lovely baby. She is still very much available for new home.She is 11 weeks old,she will be 60lbs at full grown,her parents weighed 55-60lbs at full grown, She is AKC registered and her shots are given up to date,she is vet checked and trained.All her papers will accompany her, But right now I am in africa on a Christian mission with my wife and we have her right here with us.We are going to ship her to you via Express pets delivery on next day delivery after shippment through a shipping agent , I am leaving her for $400 USD Including shipping.If you are interested in having her, I want you to get back to me with your full name,address,phone number including the nearest airport to you.Please if you know that you are not going to take very good care of my baby do not reply me because i am only giving her out because we dont have time to take care of her again due to the mission work before us here.Await your response.View pics in the attached files.

Sounds awfully shady to me...is there somebody to report this to just to be sure somebody else won't respond and get duped?

I can't believe that the paper would actually print the ad. Of course it's a scam. There have been the occasional pup here that is marked as adoptable - you get the same sort of reply from them too. They get removed immediately.

It's really not people in any developed country. These scams usually come out of Nigeria. There is no government regulation to stop them.

I actually had one of those type of scammers contact me wanting a puppy. Not sure of how it was suppose to go, but it was to much moving around of money for me.
It was about 6 years ago.
I can't believe how long they think they can go on with these scams.
