.... asked in PetsDogs · 10 years ago

is this a joke or a scam? free english bulldogs?

this guy posted an ad on our newspaper but to contact by email.

he sent this.....


Thank you very much and I'm very very happy to read from you about your response on taking good care of the babies. they are 10 weeks old and both home trained and outdoor trained also playful with other animals and kids. The male named (Max) weigh 10 Pounds and the female named (Bella) weigh 9 Pounds and will weigh big when fully grown. they are both A K C registered and shots are given up to date and both home trained. both of them are my darling sweetheart and super spoiled! They both have a sweet personality and loves to play and be carried around.

But I'm very sorry to tell you that it is too late for you to get the babies now. What really happened was that i just left the state for Africa in some few days ago after i posted the the ad on the newspaper and before i left, i did not get any response from anybody that could take very good care of them for me. So i got a missionary call from our missionary headquarters in Africa, then i have to bring the babies along with me here in Africa since i couldn't find someone to adopt them before i left the state.

I'm still willing to give the babies out to someone who can take very good care of them for me forever. All papers will accompany the puppies when shipped to you, Due to our long staying over here in Africa, and the bad weather my Wife and I have concluded to get good home and care for our babies. We are not charging or selling them to you for money but to save their life's saved and care for them so this means that, you and i will be paying for the shipment of the puppies to you. they are VET checked, but right now we are in Africa on a Christian mission with my wife and 3 kids together with Bella and Max, we have the puppies right here with us.

We are going to ship to you via a Dispatch Courier Service Company with Express Delivery on next day delivery, if you are really interested in having my little babies, i want you to get back to me with your full Name , Home Address, direct contact phone number and name of the nearest Airport to you. Please if you know that you are not capable of taking very good care of my babies, do not reply me because i am giving them out because of bad condition and we're spending months for the christian mission and i don't want Bella and max to die in this bad weather. And because we don't have time to take care of them due to the missionary work before us here. They are priceless to me,therefore i am giving both for free, so i will like you to get back to me with the Below information so i can find outs hipping cost to your Nearest Airport, and we both will be responsible for the shipping cost.

    No question--this is a scam.

    Shipping a dog from Africa? I don't even know where you live, but there's no way someone who loved his dogs that much would ship at all, let alone from so far. I'm not even sure that's possible.

    And sharing the shipping costs? Bull crap. You'll send your half, he'll pocket the money, and you won't hear from him again.

    Anyone can claim anything in an email. My guess, though? There are no dogs.

  • I didnt even have to read the whole thing.

    It is a scam..

    There are no puppies, if you send the money, they will eventually keep asking for more money and will try to come up with some lame *** excuse how they need a new crate or the so called "puppies" are stuck at the airport or some other kind of ridiculous excuse.

    It's a scam. You send money, and you get no dog. You will also never see the money again. Sometimes they even make up an extra fee that must be paid if you were stupid enough to send the first amount and see if you'll send even more. It's very common, and is as old as the internet. Please notify the newspaper so that they may remove the ad and not accept others from the same person.

    Let me guess... you're in the Florida area? If I'm wrong, sue me... but I saw that same add, sent an email, and got that exact same email back, word for word. He added four pictures of the two bulldog puppies. I had my dad tell me it was a scam, and boy was I mad!! Fuming! Ha ha(:

    But yeah, it's a scam, like everyone else has said! :D

    Scam, scam, scam, and a well-known one at that. It's been going on for years....

    And no his name is NOT "Pastor Owen Green" someone with that name who just left the US would speak much better English...

    Attractive women get hit on so much that they don’t have time to get to know every single man who wants to talk to her. Within 30-90 seconds, she’s going to decide if you’re a “maybe” or a “no.” A lot of that comes from how you dress. Read here http://AttractAnyWoman.emuy.info/?whl8

    It’s not just being fashionable. It’s about projecting who you are. Mixed messages are confusing and make women think you’re trying to hide something or be someone you’re not. Lawyers don’t wear ripped jeans. Musicians don’t dress like accountants. Fun, confident men don’t dress to blend in. And so on.

    SCAM, definitely a scam. English bulldogs usually go for around 3000+ nobody in their right mind would give them out for free. Please don't give out any personal information to this fraud. I know a girl who wasted 2000 on a scam for english bulldogs and she's never had her money refunded
