Scams selling or giving away non-existent animals, often Puppy Scams.

Before I wired any money I had to research.

I was given an application from these people to adopt their bulldog puppy for FREE. They basically threw the bible in my face and said I had to be a God loving woman raise my children as christians in order to have their puppy. And after that they said they trusted me and wanted to send me their puppy but they had recently relocated to the Netherlands and would have to send thier pup to me I would also have to pay for a change in ownership form to be completed for $50.00. I got suspicious and started researching thats when I found this site so I was reading about what banks they are using so I wrote back and said, "what bank would I have to wire money into?'' they wrote back and said their secretary would pick up the money via MoneyGram at any walmart or CVS pharmacy. As soon as I wire the money I would recieve the flight information. What do I do from here? They are sitting idol waiting for me to send the money so how do I STOP this scammer?

Oh and they also send me about 9 pictures of the puppy including two family pictures of a man and a woman holding the puppy.

This is a copy of the first email:
Good day,

This is the money email:

We want just the best of care for Paris and you have gain our trust on that.We have Paris pictures attached to this mail.All we will need is the change of ownership papers and so we can book a flight for her. The certificate for the change of ownership is a legal document that certifies that the puppy have been transferred to your ownership and care.The laws here in the Netherlands are quite different from the laws in the states and so the transfer of ownership papers must be done here if not the custom authorities at the airport will not allow the puppy to to be shipped out of the Netherlands.The change of ownership papers will cost $50 .I will be shipping Paris from the Amsterdam international airport.If you are ready we can have the papers done today and so we have her ship to you by evening or tomorrow morning depending on when the papers will be signed at the ministry of Livestock and Animals Transportation.

Welcome to the forums disappointed13. Yes you are correct because the scammers are only trying to fleece you. What must be remembered is there is no puppy involved here! Never was, there is not and never will be a real puppy. The whole exercise is to steal money from you. It is just another variation on a fraudulent scam.

I was looking for a puppy and found a post on a local website for one fairly close and inquired about their puppies. They said they were in Mexico on a missionary trip and their emails had the same layout and everything, even their signature. However this was for teacup yorkies. I did some googling and found this site. Email address used was [email protected]
THANKS FOR HAVING THIS POST!

I also came across this scam while replying to an ad in the classifieds. I did not send any money as they requested. I ceased contact, reported them to the FTC and the local classified paper. The current e-mail address being used is [email protected]
