I was searching online on oogle for an english bulldog puppy. I came across a profile that had a picture of a white english bulldog puppy for sale supposingly located in Lynn, MA. Contacted the person through an email address listed as jonesalex17@***.com . This is what he wrote...Hi,thanks for your interest in this my lovely puppy she is available and she is called NANCY,I am very sorry for getting back to you this late . i am just so concerned about her welfare and hope you can assure me of that,this puppy has been like a child to me and giving her out now is not for money making.she is barely 11weeks old and home raised, potty trained and well socialized and gets along perfectly with children and other pets.she is updated on all her shots and comes with a year health guarantee she weighs about 2.12ibs.she loves to be carried around and cuddled and full of caressing and kisses.she will come alongside the following- A year health guarantee-A KC registration papers-Pedigree papers-An air conditioned crate-Vet records-Food samples-Puppy toys Well i just got a new job which is just so demanding and make me travel a lot. As such, i have little or no time to spend with her and do live alone and as i am replying to you right now i am in (Seattle,Washington) with the puppy, she is really in need of a home where she will be provided with all the love, care and attention she is being deprived of here.I am currently on a 3months evangelical assignment which is the reason i am giving her out. however, i can have her delivered to you since i am a bit too far . but you will have to assure me that you will take proper care of her by answering to the below questions where are you located?are you married.................?Have you had a puppy delivered to you before.......................?Do you promise to take proper care of her.....?To provide pictures so i see how she is doing........? Thanks so much and get back to me if you think you can provide a good home.Best regards
I've seen the same format through other scams. they just change the type of breed and name of the puppy.
Then they'll say they're sooo busy that they can only ship the puppy and you have to wire the money through western union. fake. they'll ask for your name, address and phone number like this..
Hi , Thanks very much for getting back to me and i am very sorry for getting back to you this late,i am very happy and delighted that you are willing to provide my Nancy a good home and all the love and attention.i must admit that your family is the perfect match of my puppy.Nancy will be the best playmate and home companion you have ever dream off.Nancy have been deprive a lot from love,care and attention.she has been like my first daughter all along but i could not keep her pains when i could bare find time for my self ,i usually beg on Mrs carol, my neighbor here in (Seattle,Washington) who has four Siberian huskies to take care of her for me while i am away to work but she is tired of doing so and puts on an angry face each time i ask her to help me take care of Nancy .i decided to sent Nancy back to where we came from cause from what i see i do not like the way people handle their puppies here.How ever i can have Nancy deliver to your location today and all you will need to do is to pay for her delivery fee which can cost you $270 directly to the delivery agency after i must have had her register.I will be needing these information from you that i am going to use to do the registration at the delivery service...your full names ........your home address......... your post code...........your phone numbers......................city/state............and the nearest airport to your location.i Would have love to see you people in person but that is almost impossible now but i promise that i will pay you guys a visit when i have chance to see how you both are doing and to get to meet your family as well. please do take extreme care of Nancy for me as that has been my last wish.
a fake company called uship will send you this afterwards...
