I just wanted to thank everyone in this topic bc i almost went through with an adoption but something felt funny especially since they wanted western union and the name was what looked like a bunch letters thrown together. The person I was email was nice he even sent me pictures of a litter of puppies probably not even his I found him on oodle.com.

PAYMENT INFORMATION OF THE DIRECTOR
Name: SAAGHI MBOLO
Country: CAMEROON
City: SANTA
Post/Zip code: 00237

and the fact that they said this "ADVICE: WOULD LIKE TO ADVICE YOU AS WE ALWAYS HAVE THIS PROBLEMS WHEN OUR CUSTOMERS GO TO MAKE PAYMENTS.FOR YOUR SAFETY WHEN YOU GO TO THE WESTERN UNION STORE TO MAKE PAYMENTS IF YOU ARE BEEN ASKED WHY YOU ARE SENDING THE MONEY OR TO WHOM TELL THEM THAT IT IS TO A FRIEND OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW SO THAT THE TRANSFER CHARGES WOULD BE LOWER BUT IF YOU TELL THEM THAT IT IS TO A COMPANY OR FOR THE PURPOSE BUYING A PUPPY THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU EXTREME HIGH CHARGES OR THE TRANSFER"

Im a little dissapointed but happy that I didn't fork out the money.
So again thank you very much

I'm glad you are safe, and the scammer missed out this time. :twisted:

Strangely, those pet scams originate always from Cameroon.

Hi i think i have found the new scam these guys are pulling
i tried to get two minature donkeys, and they sent the same information:
world wide pet transport services
worldwidetransport1@gmail.com
FINANCIAL DIRECTOR'S NAMES:- _____ SYLVESTER ANAYO
COUNTRY:- _______ CAMEROON
POSTAL CODE: 00237
ADDRESS:- ________ DOWN BEACH LIMBE
AMOUNT:___________________ _€500 Euros
they wanted a western union transfer, which means they will have to wait till tomorrow, i got a funny feeling about the email - as it did not look very proffessional, and they wanted to fly the two donkeys into our airport tonight - it is very small airport and does not take animals i know as i tried to fly into it with my dog from england and could not!, so i did a bit of googling, and found nothing, the finacial director came up on facebook, but is a young lad! and i found nothing for the site name!, so i tried writing it in as a google site address, and found this page, and i seem to have the same experience as everyone else here, even the postal code is the same!
so i am pissed that i can't get my donkeys but at least i did not pay out the 500!
always trust your gut! and be careful they comany if a real one would have o problem proving they are real, and should have a web page at least!

oh and the guy who apparantly owned the donkeys was danny markson - who i cant find anywhere on the web!

danny markson - the guy who was suppost to have the donkeys: dannymarkson@gmail.com

the shipping company keeps phoning me asking for the payment, i asked them to give me a web page to see, and they said it was under construction - i asked a few other questions which he could not answer - he did not understand me, and asked me to send the money and phone him back, to which i replied i am not sending any money and i am not phoning africa and hung up!
i am getting my donkey's else were, they are more expensive but at least they are there!

Hi,
I just had a similatr experience like a lot of these people. I am from UK, wanted a westie puppy. The guy who had them advertised name was Ian Samuel, a pastor. Things got odd when he started hurry things up, would not give hid contact details and name of the pet currier. Another thing that red flagged was that the payment have to be done beforehand through postoffice approved by an office in Cameroon. I actually managed to speak briefly with Ian, who is supposed to be in a busy city of Glasgow and all i could hear a lot of animals around him. He had very heavy accent too.
So i though I would post a few names and number for future reference:
name: Ian Samuel- pastor
phone number:+447055144304
Sub-headquarters in Cameroon
+447055144569 / +447023085760 / +447055170724 / +448444847879
delivery manager Mr. DAVIS POWELL
And he was asking for originally £200 but price jumped by extra £58 when supposed delivery should have happened.
Hope it helps. This forum surely prevented me from beign scammed.

Welcome to Scamwarners, and I'm glad you didn't fall for it. Can you post the first email from him please, less your email address please.
If you are looking for a puppy online, you will find other scammers, but they will raise the same red flags you're already aware of. Western Union, 4470 numbers, and Cameroon.

You can contact me either by PM or by email to arnold.d.matthews @ gmail.com. Scam related matters only please.

Almost fell for it and decided it didn't feel right when I got the request in bad english for a money gram. Here is the email along with website information. The seller was on oodle and his name is andreyoung44@yahoo.com. The ad was for Alaskan Malamute puppies and he gave me a sob story about how he relocated from Los Angeles to Dallas, TX due to his wife having an illness. He only offered that he was in Texas after I offered to pick up the puppy in Los Angeles. It all looks very official, but when I searched for the company, it wasn't found.

Here is the email I got from the "shipping company":

Advice To All our Costumers doing Money Gram wire transfer:
We wish to inform our costumers that Money Gram is just a money transfer bank and not partners nor links with Space pet shipping firm. You also need to know that sending money via Money Gram require some extra for the transfer charges so make sure you go with some extra funds to pay for the charges and secondly, sending money via Money Gram you don't need to take your card or your bank details at the Money Gram store, you need to go there with the money in cash to avoid delay and most importantly your transaction is confidential so you don't need to disclose the reason for sending the money to the Money Gram agents because they don't have the right to know. This advice is to help our costumer know how to use money gram service.
Thanks for your understanding..
