Is thisnreal.?
thanks for the mail and at least i am convinced that the babies will be well loved and taken care
off.Since i am located in Casper WY and you are located in Florida,we will have to be shipping the babies over to you and the shipping will take 6-7 hours to your location okay.Actually i am not selling these babies but just looking for a good and loving home where they can be loved and taken care of.This is because i just lost a cousin of mine and i will be traveling to Maine Portland for her burial program and while i am away there will be no one to look after the babies so its better i just look for a good and loving home for them.I love these babies so much and i can't stand to see them suffer.

There is a NEW scam. A couple claiming to be missionaries in Mexico cannot care for their puppy and suggest that you come to Mexico to pick up the dog. Or they will ship it to you. FREE of charge. They want you to pay for the change of ownership papers.
People are crazy!

This is not a new scam. This is the same PET SCAM that has been going on for at least 10 years.

The "missionaries" suggest you pick up the puppy in a country like Mexico KNOWING you won't go to Mexico and will instead ask to have the puppy shipped.

Pay the "shipping costs" to a fake "pet Shipping company" that just happens to be located in Cameroon Africa and never see a puppy or your money again.

I was scammed by the camaroon thing as well just 1 day ago. I loss $216. I fell head over heels with a husky puppy, they even let me rename her, then they wanted the money, said she was almost over, then told me they had to stop the delivery cause her crate was broken, they wanted $550 more for a new one. sadly that was when my little red flag went up, I wish I caught it sooner before I gave the money. I wish I would've seen the signs first, but I didn't. So now I have put my husband and I in dept. Please everyone BEWARE a thing called u-ship pet cargo. and a person named Shannon Nadine THIS IS A SCAM!!

there is a Leroy
Lafond listed on puppies and more he claimsto have English bulldogs for 700 from Mi includes shipping. He request paypal to family and friends or wire transfer. Says he will start making shipping arrangements while waiting on paypal. Well he cant do that until he knows where it is going. He is not a good scammer. Anyone with paypal account knows there is no refund on family and friends and you need an airport to ship to. He forgot basic questions. I will not be sending him my money. Also look for people who will take pictures with a date posted near the dog so you know it exist. Be careful everyone

The story of the two puppies, Adam and Eve, had several clues that there was no real puppies. 14 wk old English bulldogs weigh more than 2 lbs., and they don't fit in the palm of your hand.

Don't give them any more money -- you have been scammed!

Notice the word "cameroon" -- immediate confirmation this is a scam.

This CAMEROON AFRICA PET SCAM is all over the internet.

Does any one know about smile delivery service. Has no contact phone number. Has an email form to fill out to contact .in order to pay either western union or money gram .tried the PayPal logo and it says the seller has an invalid email. Tried to Google the person buying the dog from and nothing comes up . Her face book says she's in Minnesota but she says she's in California and on the little map it has a marker for being in Africa.
- I just dealt with the "smile delivery service" over the wekend. 2 full blooded, AKC registered English Bulldogs, free plus a $425 western union fee after they receive it then I get the puppies. She first said we could ick them up and I was all for that. My husband drives a tractor and trailer and has routes there. Suddenly she's working 18 hour shifts everyday this month. Riigghhtttt!!

I almost got scammed by the french bull dogs. Something smelled fishy so I said I was gonna pass. I found the ad on a local facebook garage sale site. The name listed was Aisha B Williams. The post was then deleted and I couldn't find her profile anymore. But I did find another profile with the same picture and it said she lived in california. The girl I was talking to said she lived in miami. Too fishy for me!
I'm in NM, and a girl with the same name posted in our local yard sale fb page. She was "trying to find a loving home for her two english bulldogs." We wrote back and forth a bit (if the situation was real I would have adopted the pups) but after finding your post describing an almost identical situation we cut off communication. Her scam tactics are TEXTBOOK according to IPATA and yes (like you experienced her location doesn't coordinate) her FB page claims she's in TX, she claimed she's in New Orleans but used to live here in northern NM which is why she had the local yard sale page.
