Does this look like a scam email to you? Easy 10 pts.?

.

I sent someone an inquiry in reference to a dog (husky) he is trying to sell. He showed the price to be free on his page. Here’s what he sent back.

Hello
Thanks for your interest in adopting this my lovely puppies for
they are still available and very sorry for getting back to you this
late ok, they are by name called (Della and Ottis) and 12 weeks old.
i am just so concerned about their welfare and hope you can assure me of that.They are home raised, potty trained and well socialized and gets along
perfectly with children and other pets. they are pure
breed puppies and AKC registered. They are updated on all their shots and
comes with a year health guarantee. They love to be carried around
and cuddled and full of caressing and kisses. They come alongside the following
– A year health guarantee
-AKC registration papers
-Pedigree papers
-An air conditioned crate
-Vet
record
-Food samples
-Puppy toys
I am giving them out for adoption because of my newly acquired Job as
an auditor which demands a lot of my time and entails a lot of
traveling. As such, i have little or no time to spend with them.They are
really in need of a home where they will be provided with all the love,
care and attention they are being deprived of here. Cost is 0 each with
delivery inclusive. I am currently on a 4 months auditing assignment in
Seattle ,Washington (U.S.A) which is the more reason i am giving them out .
however, i can have any of the puppy delivered to you if you can
assure me that you will take proper care of them by answering to the
below questions
What state are you located……………..?
Do you have other pets……………….. ?
Do you promise to take proper care of them………….?
To provide pictures so i see how they are doing…… ?

Let me know if you need a male or female or both.

thanks so much and stay blessed

Price is now 270. At 12 wks they’re potty trained (idk if thats normal). "Sorry for the late reply" I sent him the email 2 hrs before he replied. ALL that stuff that comes with it.

I’m afraid that I’m going to give him the 270 & him not even having the dogs in the first place.

Opinions?

      Wouldn’t trust this at all.

      If these dogs are that young then they should go back to breeder anyway.

      If he is the breeder then he obviously isn’t taking care of where the puppies go… IF THERE ARE ANY PUPPIES….

      Sorry – wouldn’t touch it with a barge-pole.

      he Works al the time and they are neglected? and potti trained?

      they were free? now they are 270? they come with an air conditioned crate? and are in seattle
      what a pile if fertilizer!!!!!!!!!!!!

      e mail him back and tell him you live in seattle in seattle and you will bring him the cash money and pick them both up. but go ahead and answer his questions like you really believe him. i bet he does not answer , for one and if he does he will squirm like an eel on a hot rock.

      also tell him you are bring your husband with you. that is a scam for sure, but you can hae some fun frustrating him. before you tell him he shouled not try to insult your intelligences.

      That’s a scam stay away. Anytime somebody says they want the money first amd will ship to you you’ll get screwed. Also it’s too good to be true.

      I don’t think that it really looks like a scam, he seems concerned for the welfare of his animals. As for the potty training thing that is not abnormal, puppies are very easy to potty train, it just means that they have been taught to go to the toilet in a box or a certain spot which is definitely a good thing if you want them inside. The late reply thing could just be his interpretation or even the date or time on the email was incorrect or he got the date wrong; I wouldn’t worry about that too much.

      Giving money is always a concern, maybe you could organise to phone him and ask him if you can pay when he arrives with the puppy. Make sure you’re not alone when he comes either or that you meet somewhere public because you don’t know the person.

      Goodluck!

      well it does seem a little sketchy for sure. I never trust emails with horrible grammar. Just don’t give anybody any money until you have the dogs. If they demand they have the money before you even see the dogs its clear its a scam or something. Something is definitely off though in my opinion.

    6. Ashley says:

      kinda, but kinda not? lol. ask if you can pick the dog/s up, and see what s/he says.

    7. Rocky 701 says:

      If you really want to adopt then no it’s not a scam.
      But it’s probably scam if you didn’t request it or really asked him for the dogs.

      THIS EMAIL LOOKS SUSPICIOUS AND WEIRD.
      Go and actually see the dogs because it looks fake no offense. Take someone with you BTW

    8. Ryan says:

      It could be a scam. Best thing is to email back and answer all the questions but just say to him that you would like to view the puppies first before payment. That way you can see if they are for real

    9. Drama says:

      I’m not extremely experienced in this type of this thing, but that email seems very suspicious.
      I would proceed with extreme caution if I were you.

    10. Jen Himmer says:

      I didnt read the whole thing but this is whatI can tell you, Kinda sounds a bit like a scam. I might buy a 1 year old dog for 350 dollars so your either getting a bargain or scammed, have you seen pics of them?

    11. Moondog says:

      Yes, he’s trying to scam you.

      It’s a Cameroon puppy scam – do not reply

      Just google the sentence "They love to be carried around and cuddled and full of caressing and kisses. They come alongside the following " and see how many times this same EXACT sentence has been reported in Cameroon puppy scams
      Here are Della and Otis back in July 2010 and they were only 12 weeks old then but are bulldogs instead of huskies http://enoughaboutyousmith.blogspot.com/2010_07_01_archive.html
      In October 2010 they were Maltese puppies http://www.wordtravels.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=4799&page=1
      Here it’s just one puppy named Kelly http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100828134612AAwMUkk

      They want you to send money to some fake "shipper" with a fake website created by the scammers and you lose all your money

      DO NOT give these criminals your home address for any reason

      Need more proof it’s a scam – say that you didn’t realize they were in Seattle and that it’s great news since your brother is a student at Seattle University and will just come by this week to pick up the puppies. They don’t have to worry about shipping since your brother is coming home in a few weeks and will just bring them on the plane with him
