Puppies from Cameroon Scam - Lagos pet scams
  • Looks like the puppy scammers have gone quiet for a while...
  • Not so. I believe I just almost got scammed.

    I simply wanted to help these 'nice' people who were '"working for the U.N." and had to leave for Cameroon. They said they brought their 2-13 wk old Maltese puppies with them , only to discover that "the country wouldn't allow the puppies in" and they had "2 weeks" to send them back.

    I said I would take them both. That's when I started getting suspicious. I've traveled a lot and I know that customs does not take credit cards...and you have to pick up live animals...I've never heard of puppies being delivered to your home(?).

    I told them I would not give anyone my credit card number over the phone "for the crate which was broken in transit", and when I had the puppies in hand I would give them a check .

    Then I thought:

    -if someone is smart enought to "fight malaria in pregnant women for the UN," shouldn't they be smart enough to ask beforehand if the country accepts dogs in without complications.

    Here is the correspondence:

    Thanks for the mail and interest in the little girl and boy. I am sorry for the late response,we were busy trying to get some stuffs for our new home. they are 13 weeks old and their name Daisy and Jones. Daisy is our darling angel girl while the male is Jones.We love them so much but its unfortunate that we cant even give them the love and affection we have in our hearts . We are on a volunteer mission to Cameroon together with the UN malaria committee ,in regards to the disease in pregnant women and children. We traveled up here together with Daisy Jones and my daughter. They wont allow Daisy and Jones into the country for reason being that, pets are not allowed into the country from other countries and i have been given a maximum of 2 weeks to send them back to the states. So that is the reason i have to find for them a home back in the states where they will be showered with all that love and affection. Hope you wont mind if i ask you a few questions:
    Do you have kids?
    Do you have any experience with puppies?
    Are you a breeder or will you breed her in the future if i let you have her?
    Will you send us updates about her from time to time and pictures?
    I am just being concerned about the type of home they will be going to ,so that is why i am curious to know. We love them so much and we want to make sure goes to a family that will show them the affection they deserves. They are health guaranteed,A KC registered and will come along with all their papers,diapers,dog blanket,play toys, crate and food menu. They are very playful and go along with kids and other home pets.... They love to be held and cuddled and sometimes wants all the attention for them .. So if you can stand the chance of taking them home, you will only need to buy them a new travel crate because the one she came in with is bad it will cost just $95 for a new crate ,this money for crate will be paid directly to the airport to provide the travel crate ... But i am sorry i first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements.Waiting to read from you soonest look the 2 puppies and tell which you are interested in pictures are below

  • The same thing happened to me. I have been receiving calls from Cameroon all day--allegedly from someone at the airport, and they want me to go to Western Union and pay $160.00 to have the dog sent to the US. Another family e-mailed me the same crap. I'm so glad I checked the airport's website and found all of this information. This is such a shame. Thank God I hadn't sent anything yet. The e-mail I received is word for word the same as one that is listed above. What a waste!
  • Hi, I got scammed I was looking for a yorkie and I saw this yorkie for free so I e-mailed her and she said all i needed was to pay 110.00 dollars i e-mailed her i'm still waiting for her response.

The reason why am giving the puppy out for adoption is because of the poor health of my son with cancer i have not got the time to provide Haily with the care she need and provide her with her necessities that's why i had been looking for a new home for her that will provide her with all the love i want her to experience . i will like you to promise me that u will provide my little cute Haily with all her needs..

    -she eat 3 times daily and at afternoons she drink Milk .
    -she is socialized with kids and other house hold pets .
    -she is current with all her shots till date
    -she is a portable Pure Breed Tea Cup baby.
    -she likes to be carried a lot and be spoiled.
    -she likes to be kissed
    -she gets angry when you shout at her, so don't do that please.

    Haily eat both fresh and dry food 3 times daily and which is good for her health.Right now i have only one option to give her out to you because now i am no longer in the states i am in Great Central Lake British Cameroun(Douala) so the only option is that i will ship her to you and you will be only required to take care of her airfare which will cost you $110 .So in a few hours from now i will be on my way to the insurance because i am new here so i want every thing to go well. So i am giving her out because there is no one she can play with or i am not always at home to play with her .so please i will want you to promise me in Gods name that you are going to take good care of her and provide her with all the love she needs..i will like to know if you have kids who can play with her and take them out for a walk some times.So i am Located in Cameroun and the flight will take a hours duration and that will be very comfortable and safe.So Please i will like to know the following from you to see if my baby will be in good loving home

She is very dedicated to what we may ask of her..she is a very kind.She loves to play in the yard, but will always return in minutes for more love and affection.....she enjoys retrieving her toys, but mostly loves the attention from our family..she has always impressed us with her instinctive obedient behavior. With little training she follows commands and will retrieve all day without fatigue.she has a very sweet, innocent look.This goes hand-in-hand with her personality.please if you know that you will not be able to take good care of Haily please don't write me again.
    All you just need to do is to take good care of her she will be yours for ever and she will be a good house pet and she will bring love to your family.You can contact me via email waiting to read from you soon.

    Also I searched her e-mail address up on google and it said she's from mexico, addos, chad, and other countries
  • OMG! I was in the process of sending money for a Yorkshire terrier but the flight information that was sent to me in the subject field said in regards to your Yorkshire Terrier but in the body of the confirmation is siad in reference to your british bulldog. That's when I got suspicious about the whole thing. I email them back and told them what it said and they told me to call the airport and a number they provided me with but was not the number for the airport on the site. I decided to look up the airport and from page said puppies scam! I guess I was one of the lucky ones that did not get caught. Thanks
  • I saw an ad in a UK website for free yorkie pups and sent them an email asking if this was an error as they are expensive dogs in the UK. They replied and stated they had to move and their new apartment does not accepted dogs. When they said the cost was in dollars I tried to tell them no as I know the import regulations in the UK and no matter where the animals come from they must have gone through the Pet Passport Scheme which involves taking a blood sample after a rabies vaccine has been given. The time period for this is SIX MONTHS so they cannot guarantee a puppy had gone through this as it would not be old enough. I have had experience with this as I brought two dogs with me from Canada to the UK. These people will try anything to convince you that they know what they are doing and will have the dog(s) delivered right to your home. Do not give them any info or send them any money as they are scammers. If you want a puppy either go to a reputable breeder or your local humane society. Remember if it sounds too good to be true....it is. Two more names to add to the scammers list is Veronica Moore and Vero Hosia. They said the puppies would be shipped from Cameroon.
  • Just to let all of you out there. The puppy scammers are still at large they almost got me. But I researched on the internet and I call alot of people. They said don't send money. I didn't send any money they called me and I told them they are going to investagated haven't heard back from them sence.They are from Cameroon. There e-mail addresses are (kate_morgan@hotmail.fr) and (pr.rogan@yahoo.com.) So look out.

    questa gente sa il fatto suo e sa come truffare le persone...io sono l'ultima oggi ma ce ne saranno tante altre.......io cmq denuncero alla rete tv nazionale questo fatto per vedere se qualcuno puo fermare una volta per tutte questa cosa.....io ci credevo ma alla fine loro mi han detto GRZIE DI TUTTO......che tristezza.....

    Save ... I understand that I am the last in order of time to have been swindled by these people .........
    their mail is

    frank.lezy01 @ yahoo.com ... the person who has ever contacted me .... which then I made a transfer a FONYUY CONRAD
    air_france_cameroon@yahoo.fr; hypothetical ... more contact with the line Air France takes delivery of the puppies and kittens that we avvertre that are still awaiting the documents ......

I am the last Thursday but there will be many more ....... cmq I denounce this fact with the national TV network to see if anyone can stop a once and for all this thing ..... I believed them but in the end they told me GRZIE OF ALL ...... how sad .....
  • I just got contacted by the same scam artist on CraigsList. What can I do to report them as a scam? Here's the email from them and from me...

    While I would love to help you and do pray you find a wonderful home for your pets, I think it would be best for both you and the pups to find placement in TX, with members who remained in the U.S. that are involved in the organization or church you are doing mission work through, or perhaps even place them back with the breeder/agency/previous owner you got them from. Travel of that kind could be quite traumatic and without seeing the pups in person, I am not even remotely interested in putting them through that stress or taking on the potential financial risk should something happen to them en-route. I wish you the best in finding homes for the pups, but be aware that you are likely to be reported due to vicious Cameroon pet animal export scams that have claimed many innocent people of money and ruined their ability to trust in online transactions. It's unfortunate that the airline company that flew you into Cameroon wasn't aware of the country's policy against allowing the importation of animals into the country as it surely would have saved you much heartache and money lost. However, to have taken on the care of such young puppies knowing you'd be committing to such a drastic lifestyle change and moving you to a foreign country that was going to result in removing them from receiving proper health care and vaccination treatment shows a lack of responsibility on your part. It especially doesn't make sense when taking into consideration the questions you have regarding the puppies future lifestyles should I give them a home. Be aware that you may want to contact a rescue organization to assist you because there is a very good likelihood you will be investigated for concern of attempting to operate a scam, however, after doing a moment of research online, I'm sure that none of this information is new to you. I wish you well in your attempts at spreading Good will in Cameroon and should you truly be a resident of TX, perhaps the US will find your work so endearing that they find just cause in relocating you permanently so that you may acquire a legal puppy in your new location.

    Subject: Re: female toy poodle

    Thanks for the mail and interest in the little puppies. I am sorry for
    the late response,we were busy trying to get some stuffs for our new
    home. They are both 13 weeks old and their names Lissa(Female) &
    Lino(Male). Lissa & Lino are our darling angels. We love them so much
    but its unfortunate that we can't even give them the love and
    affection we have in our hearts for them. We are on a volunteer
    mission to Kribi Island Cameroon together with the UN malaria
    committee ,in regards to the disease in pregnant women and children.
    We traveled up here together with Lissa & Lino with my daughter. They
    won't allow Lissa & Lino into the country for reason being that, pets
    are not allowed into the country from other countries and i have been
    given a maximum of 2 weeks to send them back to the states where they
    came from. So that is the reason i have to find for them a home back
    in the states where they will be showered with all that love and
    affection. I am resident in Texas but presently in Cameroon. Hope you
    wont mind if i ask you a few questions:

    -Are You Married?
    -Are you a Christian Family?
    -Do you have kids?
    -Do you Smoke?
    -Do you have any experience with puppies?
    -Are you a breeder or will you breed them in the future if i let you have them?
    -Are you ready for them today?
    -Do you have a Phone # I could reach you at?
    -Will you send us updates about them from time to time and pictures?

    I am just being concerned about the type of home they will be going to

    pets. they love to be held and cuddled and sometimes wants all the
    attention for themselves. . So if you can stand the chance of taking
    them home, you will only need to buy them a new travel crate because
    the one they came in with is bad it will cost just $120 for a new
    crate for each of them and $240 for both of them since they shall
    travel together but in two separate crates,this money for crate will
    be paid directly to the airport to provide the travel crate & you
    could have them home with you today if you wish. But i am sorry i
    first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will
    know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements..Waiting to
    read from you soon..Below are some of their most recent pictures.
  • Hi, my youngest daughter so desperately wants a Siberian Husky puppy and knows they are not cheap. After scouring the internet she came across an advertisement offering free pups. She contacted the owners who claimed to be living nearby, she asked if she could go and visit the pups but they told her they were being held at the breeding ground in Scotland (opposite end of the country!)and would have to be transported to her for a small fee. I was immediately suspicious and warned her that it could be a scam. She was adament it was not and carried on regardless. She received information and pictures of the puppy! She persisited with it to the point of them requesting payment up front - TO CAMEROON!!!!! She also received a phone call requesting payment, at this point my husband took over and advised them he was an undercover police officer and they were currently under investigation -they promptly hung up!!
  • Sounds just like the same people that emailed me....im looking for a horse to loan! i got an email from this email address lima.iven7@gmail.com. This is what they sent!
    Bently is an amazing boy who does it all! He is 7yrs-old, 15.3 hands,

    or without other horses. Easy keeper (no shoes required), Fearless,
    and willing to do most anything asked. He LOVES people and does not
    want to let you down. Suitable and safe for an advanced beginner and
    up. If you are looking for a safe, sane, and lovable horse that will
    clean up in the ring this is your guy!!! Serious inquires only please!
    he is also a good jumper
    . Pre-purch vet eval done last week 100% sound easy keeper will come
    with all health papers and a six months health guarantee
    i am giving him up for a adoption only to lovely homes and horse
    lovers and this is because i can no longer ride since because my
    doctor has asked me not to do so since my last accident and also
    because i have plans of relocating to Spain and it will be to Spain
    and i know he will not be happy there since there are no ample horse
    so before we proceed i will like to know the following from you.
    where are you located ?
    do you have any idea about taking care of horses?

    home with you. he wil come with tacks and a six months health
    assurance i am located in Edinburg
    you location is pretty far from me okay ,and so for that reason and
    also because of the cold weather condition i will be making
    arrangements with a delivery agency to bring him over to you and then
    all you have to do is to pay for the delivery charges . if that is
    okay with you just let me know so we can proceed!

  • Hi,
    Thanks a lot!!!
    I was about to make the same mistake.
  • Hi, I have been emailing a lady called Lima Iven also regarding the above horse, Bentley. She sent me emails today and he is gorgeous. All she needs is for me to pay the delivery charges from Wales to NI and I can have him free. I'm going to email to tell her I'm willing to travel to Wales to pick him up and see what happens. Real pity its ascam, the horse is magnificent. :(

    Thanks for the info guys, I'll not be caught out.

  • They almost just got me. I was looking for t-cup yorkies and this lady named Nacy Bell was selling her two puppies for $180 to change the names over. I should have know it was a scam but she talked so nice and i asked if it was real and she was like " Iam a Christian" and made me trust her. Even my fiance was looking at the emails and he didnt think anything about them. I did proceed to western union to send the money. Which i did. When i retured home i googled "Where is Cameroon? It was in Africa and my friend told me not to buy dogs from there earlier today ao i called western union and got my refund before the scamers could get to the money. Lucky for me i ran acroos thiss website when i googled "should i buy puppies from Cameroon?" Oh man this website was a saver. Even through i will not be getting back the charge service for western union, iam happy. I will be buying one here in the USA
  • oh yeah the wbsite was adoos.us
  • i just got scammed out of 600.00 the same way talk about in this forun.her phony emails were victoriaanimals@zooconsultant.com and pet transport agency@europe.com and they just treid this morning w,are range @ puppies.com all out of cameroon and victoria address said she was out of surrey england,,,,,mw
  • Thanks all of you.. I been in contact with someone by the name of Justin Hepworth from Cameroon-just this morning. Was considering getting a puppy listed in my local newspaper. I emailed him and he sent back a lovely e-mail. Stating how he had just transferred to Cameroon for a new job and found the puppy was being left alone-blah blah blah... After the third e-mail something crossed my mind this puppy is coming from another country-would have to be quarantined. He assured me that it would not have to be since he had just brought from the states in the past few weeks. BIG RED FLAG so I decided to search on line for any scams.. Thanks again everyone-saved me a lot of money. I am going to write my local newspaper informing them of this scam...
  • I think ive just got scammed.
    I was supposevly adopting a Yorkie Terrier
    and i paid $95 for the suppose change of papers then they send me
    an e-mail that i needed to pay the insurance $590
    their i go like nuckkel head and i sent it,
    next i get an e-mail that it was stuck at the air-port and that i needed to pay
    USD1,095 for some vaccines and i dont what else
    these were the e-mail adress:glasgow_uk@in.com

    can some one check or give me an advice to see if its a scam
    but reading all these ppl's comments i think ive got scammed so bad
  • The puppy scammers are not idle. In regards to Golden Retriever pups.... I talked with an Uncle Brazil, Nancy.23111 and an Ana. I asked for phone numbers to make travel arrangements and pick ups with one reply with a 14 digit phone number!!. He was supposed to be from Alabama. Hah! Definately a "turban turner" accent! I told the people through email that I could make arrangements to fly to get the puppy and they could not name the airport or transport service they were using. I have informed Uncle henry's about this scam...hopefully they will be a little more alert about their ad placement people. If it sounds too good to be true..then it is. I "reamed" a woman out about how shameful this was as people get their hopes up to give love and a good home to a future family member and got the reply that she was a good Christian person and sent me pictures of herself. She was pretty AND a blonde. My husband said to heck with the pup, I'll come get you! LOL! Needless to say she has never emailed me again, beware people. BUY AMERICAN!!!!
  • Wow ...I am in the middle of negotions as I type this to secure 2 Yorkie puppies from Cameroon. They very obligingly supplied the airport from which the pups would be shipped so decided to have a look while waiting for them to reply. Guess what I found ????? all of you with your comments. I am so glad to have my suspicions confirmed before I did anything really stupid. As yet they have not given me a name or address to send the money but did give me a dodgy looking phone # and this is the email address that is being used ....pelagielola001@hotmail.com. Thank you all for continually adding your comments and I hope they help others as they have helped me.
  • Are there no Yorkies available in the USA/UK? Why do you need to buy them from Cameroon?? None of this makes any sense to me...

    A good rule in this case is: Do Not Buy Animals Over the Internet!
  • I just wish i'd seen this page 2 days ago when I got hooked in with a cheap boxer dog 15weeks old, he never asked me any questions like the others on here but he told me they were his daughters dogs and she had recently died leaving him with no means of looking after them in his conditions. I had no idea about pet scams so i fell hook line and sinker. more so because I spoke to him on the phone daily for 4-5 days also because they were claiming a cheap boxer dog. Ive lost £280 in all from 2 moneygrams to Cameroon. I was told i had to send another £50 or i would'nt have my dog delivered, but fortunatly when typin a query i had on my laptop i came across this site. I received a call from before I saw this and they agreed to a refund in to my account if i send them my details but when they rung back after i realised they hung up when i asked for a refund. I feel so stupid for being pulled in and myself and partner especially my 2 toddlers are so upset, half an hour ago I should of received my dog! Surely someone can tighten security for moneygram and western union and stop this from happening again. Ive learnt the hard way.....
  • i was scam i send the money now they are threathing me about not paying the paper because the dog is in paris and if she goes to guari i have to pay 1000 dollars a week the email address of this person is nicole.home222@yahoo.com
  • I unfortunately was scammed too! $96 that is in my currency R1600.00 (that's a lot of money)
    I still cant believe it and that after my husband warned me! Here is the first mail from him (Mr. Nsai Jude N.) other names that were used (Mr. Pat Robertson) and the delivery man (he didnt give me his name) but e-mailed me nice letterhead with all the "company details". The asshole even phoned me on my cell phone! I hope we can catch these fuckers!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the mail and the interest in my Kittens.They are still
    available and ready to go.They are Spectacular pure
    registered with all shots,vaccines and vet records available. i relocated to the West Coast of Victoria in Cameroon for an Emigration program, and other issues that will last 2 years so i took my babies with me to keep me
    worm, but we went to a vet doctor a few days ago, and he told us that the rapid climatic changes here in Victoria will not be good for the kittens. We are from California, and we came into Victoria, Cameroon just two weeks ago, and we thought that transporting the kittens back to California will be very expensive, so we are looking for a good home around the African continent to give our babies to any great home, since this will be less expensive . In placing my babies out for adoption,i am looking for reasonable, knowledgeable and cautious person who can offer them tenderness, nursery with lots of love kisses and hugs.These adorable, cute and lovely kittens are about 16 weeks old and would be the perfect match for you. They will be the best playmate you've ever dreamed of. With their great personality and good temperaments with kids and other pets, They would be the one to steal your soul.They would be coming along with their vet records,and all their registration papers attached to their package with lots of play toys.You have nothing to worry about Feeding, because i will also enclose their hand book and feeding menu to their package ok.
    Promise to me that you would shower them with lots of TLC . i would never like that my babies should end up in a shelter or rescue. Feel free to mail me.
    If you are willing to get Molly and Kitty, please e-mail me asap so that i would
    stop all other contacts .If you have any more question to ask i will answer you truthfully and faithfully .I would like to ask you some few
    questions if you do not mind.
    1....Are you a breeder??
    2...have you been keeping pets??
    3...Do you have kids at home?
    4...Are you going to keep them or give them to someone?
    5....How soon will you want to take kittens?
    6 ....Where are you located??
    7....Will afford 96$ for the shipping fee of each kitten?
    8....will be taking both or just one of them?
    Awaiting your kind response.
    Get some picture's below hope you will love and adore them as well.
    thanks and waiting.

  • 1st of all to DavidF. This puppy supposedly was from the USA. I answered an ad from delvin_dina@yahoo.com and was contacted by Sean Jones who said that he was in Washington. I did not know about Cameroon until I got an e-mail from Dina that the puppy was ready to ship and that I needed to send $253.00, by Western Union, to an address in Cameroon. I had been cautious the whole time of "talking" to Sean and he told me that he is a God fearing person. All I can say to them is, YES, you should fear God because he will deal with you one way or another in His own time. When I read the rest of the scams on people, they are saying the exact same things that were said to me. Thank goodness that I did not send any money. My first instinct was right after all, do not trust people any further than you can throw them.
  • I am still so pissed off about this whole story! I wrote this to Carte Blanche and hopefully we can get these assholes!


    HER NAME IS KAREN karen perez <karenparez@live.fr
  • Has anyone had someone from the website *BUYANDSELL* try to scam you with chow puppies? I had a problem with a man from Ontario, but am now talking with a women from Quebec, she said she has to leave to Haiti this Thursday. I am paying for half the shipping fee and am not paying her for the puppy until I get it... What does this sound like? I thought it might be ok because I dont have to pay her until I have the puppy!
  • I was just reading more of the comments on here and have had about 3 people email that say exactly what you are all saying. Like: are you a breeder
    will you send pictures
    blah blah blah!!!
    I am so mad! I guess I will be canceling another puppy!
  • I too have almost been scammed! I read an ad on simpletrade for 2 yorkie pups $160 each, I contacted the woman and she sent through some very cute photo's of them, rather professionally done too I might add. She told me she is a medical researcher and moved from Sydney to Cameroon and she didnt realise that she needed a pet permit to have the dogs with her. The pups are at the airport and all I have to pay is the crate rent for them.
    She has asked for my full name, address and phone number and then she would send me the details of how to make the payment for them.
    I didnt give her any of my details as 'something' didnt seem right, I decided to google 'pet permits' for Cameroon and this site popped up.

    The name this one is using at the moment is Ashley Zook and her email is ashleyzook@live.com
  • I just got scammed for $100! I was on ODDLE.COM and found a ad of a 10 week old yorkie puppy name casanova for $100. I am very upset! Please people do not fall into there trap. There is no puppy! They are liers!

    She goes by the name Nicole Dallas. Her email is nicole.home222@yahoo.com Please be aware! They will try to convince you by sending picures of the puppy. I dont want someone to go threw what I had to go threw. Its sad and awful. They got my hopes up for nothing. Heres what they do, The lady told me she was headed to the airport and that she dropped my puppy off and that the airport will contact me. Then, a man called me stating he worked at the airport in Cameroon and needed me to send the $100 threw western union because my puppy was at the airport already and when they recieved the money they will ship me the puppy with flight information and details. So I sent the money and once they recieved the money, no one called me and the number they gave me which was (00237)96908292 was all of a sudden not available. They can call you but you cant call them.....YAOUNDE NSIMALEN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT CAMEROON PETS TRANSPORT SERVICE DEPARTMENT doesnt even exist!!!. Then, they sent me an email saying that my puppy was on hold because I had to pay for isurance and for a warming crate for her so that it was gonna cost $450 but once I get my puppy they would refund me. Thats when i realized it was a scam and I got very upset and after the person was trying to tell me that it was not a scam and i kept asking for her to send my money and she kept ignoring my question. I came across this website when it was too late and realized i should have done my research first. Many people have the same story that I have. Its true they are a big scam. THERE IS NO PUPPIES! Please people we have to put them to a stop. I learned my lesson. I am also reporting them to oddle.com and yahoo.com.
    Heres an email that she had sent me.

    Response to the ad. I want you to know that I and my family (my wife

    Yorkshire terrier Puppies. So later on we notice that the weather here
    In Africa is very very bad for the puppies to sustain here with us on

    suffer in anyway. We have been praying to have someone who can take
    good care of them and give them all the love in the world. That's all
    they want. We're due for more travel to some remote part of West
    Africa and we Cannot risk taking them along as we know it will have
    adverse effect on them, health wise. We have sent you pictures of
    them; please let us know when you receive it. Can you tell us a

  • Well I am joining your club...I was scammed big time....all the way to falling for the insurance and the permit to get the dog in the US.....Stupid me...but they didn't stop there. They went on to say the dog was quarantined in the US and they were trying to work it from their end.....then got an email they needed my photo id so they could get an international permit so I could get the dog!! BIG FLAG!! Told them I was going to call a relative at the US dept of interior and the FBI headquarters and told them to stop contacting me.....Wish I would have found this beforehand.....big lesson learned!!

  • these people are totaly scammers they tried to tell me they had a pug that was in newfounland and that i had to pay $190 for shipping but theairline they told me does not fly in canada and the phone number they gave me was not in service and was also not from canada it was from washington state they wanted the money sent by western union i hope one day some one finds these people and be the you no what out of them as they got my ten year old daughter very upset as she really wants a pug puppy sl137@shaw.ca
  • I am from WA State, I hope that guy doesn't use my private information for something illegal. I learned my lesson. Never ever trust anybody over the phone or internet. Even if you have meet the person.
  • Hello! I just go scammed by a Lisa Merylin ( and almost by a Kelsey Thersea) regarding a Siberian Husky puppy. DO NOT believe they're emails. I've made a complaint to BBB and the Federal Trade Commissions!! They will take you for as little as $120 first, then keep asking for more and more money, so the puppy can get to you. These people will also say in there email about Life Insurance is needed to ship the pup. The email said "they will care, feed, and water the puppy until you take custody of the pup." So BEWARE!!! Do your research on EVERY aspect of what you are getting in the emails. I also had 1 other email from Kelsey Thersea and her wording was VERY similar to the email from this Lisa. I had some bad feelings initially, yet more last night after the money transfer. Never wire money thru a Money Gram or Western Union. Also if get scammed, REPORT it!! They ask for details of the contacts and money. Keep your emails, names, and phone number, wire information, and so on. This helps the Bureau and Federal Trade Commissions track these Scammers down. I ask for anyone reading this to say a small prayer for my 7 yr old son, who is heart broken since this has all transpired. It's awful and disrespectful. What a hard lesson for a 7 yr old and his 1st dog.
    Thank you for the people who have commented. I will say a prayer for you all and ask for better guiding when it comes to these things. God Bless to All!
  • Also the company transporting the puppy is ""Delimin Pet Relocators" out of Kumba, Cameroon, Africa. They will get you an official looking email for payment that goes through Western Union. My receiver for payment was a Kassi Eve Romanie at the city listed above. Also, ask for Airline Name, and you should also have a Airway Bill Number from the Cargo from the Airline. You will find out that the initial time they contact you it will be from an "Unavailable" number. Although the 2nd contact was from a US Cellular phone, yet when you try to call them back, the number is "Not Inservice." I'm so thankful I didn't lose anymore more money than the 1st transfer, which was $120. SOmetimes, we are too trusting as Americans, and other times we are so Guarded/Suspicious about our decisions. It's crazy. NOw, I'm so SUSPICIOUS of everything, which can not be a good thing to teach my son. So sad and disappointing. Thanks for reading. God Bless!
