    I had a friend that was recently scammed by a person in Spain. So I thought that I would look into this scamming business that is on our local site. I found one: yorkie to be shipped to me asap without money yet. I want to see how far I can go with this person. My friend lost up to 350 dollars at christmas time mind you. She was looking for that perfect pet for her only child. I am certainly not sending this person any cash. I'm glad that I found this site. I will get my friend to look at this site. Good luck and I am so sorry that you went through this. God Bless.

    I really really wish that I had half the money that most of the people on this forum page have. I'm just glad that I have twice the sense to actually realise when a scam is being pulled. Never have I seen a better example of the phrase 'A FOOL AND THEIR MONEY ARE SOON PARTED'.

    To all those that have been scammed...get some chalk and write on the board 1000 times 'I must not be such a fool, I must not be such an fool, i must not be....' If someone in Africa is offering to sell you puppies, chimps (simply IMMORAL), guppies in a bowl, a bag of tangerines or a box of smarties for a price that is too good to be true...IT IS A SCAM.

    as for the scam, i was looking on kijiji for a puppy in the toronto area, bc i had found my dog that i currently have. i came a ccross a 14 week old Beagle named rima, once the person informed me that they were in Camaroon(africa) i grew suspicious......but being the curious person that i am, i played it out as if i wantd the dog, he told me that he was on a research assignment and he couldnt care for the dog any longer, he then asked for my info and said that he would register her at the dept of animal at the airport...........they even went as far as sending me a confirmation email for my flight, which stated that i would have to go to western union and western union $100.00 to some mane that they claimed to be the company secretary, they have also called me and thats when i informed them that i knew what was going on and that i had never planed on taking part in their scam......heres some of what the :comfirmation email looked like"

    Once again I am glad you get back to me with at least some answers to my questions, so like I did mention in my last email that you are only going to be paying for the puppy's air ticket so it can be ship to you, I want you to know that I am still standing on those words and also I want you to know that the Minister of Fishes and Animal Husbandry has make a reduction on any pet or animal that is being ship from Cameroon to any other country so it is not going to cost you that much to have any of this puppies ship to you, just $550 for everything including the puppy's air ticket and some food that can last with the puppy for at least 3 weeks so please do let me know which of this my puppies that you will like to adopt so I can get to give you some more details about he/she and even send you some more of his or her pictures. Also Note: that you will need to pay 2/3 of the above mentioned amount which is $400 first before the puppy can be ship to you and when you receive your puppy and check to see that he/she is in good health you will now send the balance of $150 but if you will like to pay all the money at once then there is no problem you must pay this money before the puppy can be ship to you. Hope to hear back from you soon and also please get back to me if you are ok with that Also you will need to pay the money to either through Credit Card of Western Union Money Transfer okay my full address where you will need to get the money send to is

    Well I have to say I wish I would have seen all of this before I sent $100.00. I had e-mailed this guy on 2 yorkies he had for free, he asked me questions and I answered them. He e-mailed me back and told me it would be $100.00 to ship them over here to Ga. So I sent the money western union. Receivers name is Bonfin Yerima. I sent it to Littoral Douala. Then I get an e-mail from the air port Nsimalen international airport saying I had to come up with $650.00 for insurance on the dogs and that I would get $600.00 refunded once the puppies got here. Well I went under my daughters e-mail account like I was another person interested in the puppies and he e-mailed back telling her he had the puppies and it would cost her $100.00 to ship. So right then and there I knew it was a scam. His e-mail address is yerri_fla@yahoo.com so please I hope this gets around so know one else falls for this crap.

    -When exactly do you want her?
    -Is the climatic condition in your area good for them?
    -Where do you live?
    I will appreciate it very much if you told me more about how their new home is going to look like.Below this male are the photos of both puppies.Are they your dream puppies?I will be waiting to read from you soon.Thanks and God bless you

As for their feeding you know Every puppy needs good food to have a good start on life. There are many, many brands to choose from. I use a combination of Pro Plan Small Breed Chicken & Rice Puppy Food mixed with Bil-Jac Puppy food. I mix these two foods at three scoops Pro Plan to two scoops Bil-Jac.. I have found that my dogs do wonderful with this mixture. I also free feed all of my puppies, which means that there is food available whenever they want it. I have found that my puppies just don't seem to eat enough at any one time but they do seem to just 'graze' all day long.Are you ready to provide all these for my puppies ,because i really need the best for my puppies OK
    I also feed my puppies twice a day with a mixture of the kibble and Pedigree canned puppy food warmed in the microwave,Right now, all that is left is for you to make available the payment of the $100 so that i can register the puppies for them with the next available flight heading to your location OK.If the payment is done as soon as possible then the puppies will be with you by 19:00 O'clock.As regards to the payment of the $100 for their transportation you will be using Western Union money transfer in sending the money since it is the fastest means i can use to pick up the money and register them as soon as possible.Below are my Western Union information which you will be using in making the payments

    Receiver's Names......................BONFIN YERIMA
    Country.........................................CAMEROON
    State.............................................LITTORAL

Do I pay the air port the $100.00 when they get here? I have never done this before.And are you sure that is all it is going to cost? I want to make sure I have everything
    ready before they get here. Thank you so much God Bless you and your family. yes i promise you that i am a very honest person and from the way you speak it seems you are a very honest person that will take good care of my puppies o.k are you a christian?

    OK.Have a nice day and take care and God bless you I have good news for you.I picked up the money already and have been to the airport for the registration of the puppies.Everything was a sucess.The flight details as told to me by the airport will be provided by them so they assured me that they are going to contact you either via mail or call to let you know the departure and arrival time of the puppies at your closest airport.Please do let me know the flight schedule once the airport contacts you ok.Thanks and remain blessed. Ohh my God I think we have a little trouble .I just received a notification from the shipping agency that we would have get new insurance papers for Gina and Lucy since their insurance papers have expired .What are we going to do ? I really want you to have Gina and Lucy before the ending of today ok .They said we would need to get 2 insurance papers for Gina and lucy before they can be shipped out of the airport immediately . They are asking a huge sum of $650 .what are we really going to do ? All i have presently is $250 at the moment and i am willing to help out with that .Can you help completing the rest ? Please i would really like you to help out with the remaining $400 for me to take the money and go to the insurance company and get the insurance papers as soon as possible and get them shipped to you immediately. Also they told me that the money was 100% refundable and i would plead here that as soon as you get the refund cheque of $650 please try sending back the $250 to me ok .I am really sorry about all this but i did not know this was going to happend ok

    I just talked with a freind of mine and he has only $50 to help me out with.So i am going to pay $300 and you go and complete the remaining $350 Ok .Once you have the refunds as the airport has assured me off please try all you can to send back the $300 to me ok .I know you trusted me and sent the $100 but truly before the lord we serve i did not know that the insurance papers of the puppies where expired and this makes me to feel very sorrowful on how you feel on not getting the puppies ok.I can assure you that as soon as you help out with the remaining $350 i am going to personally see into it that the puppies are shipped to you without any further troubles ok.I am a christain and i cannot take your money and do not send the dogs since that is punishable in the eyes of the lord ok.Do you remember this old saying. Do on to others what you want others to do unto you .So Mrs Belind, i would like you to talk this with your husband and try to see into it that the payment is done as soon as possible for Gina and Lucy to be shipped over to you and not going to the Wild life reserve zoo as the airport mentioned to me ok .
    Even the lord knows that all i have is just $300 and nothing more ok. Please Please do consider me at this point cuz i have explained everythinf that i know just to make you feel comfortable and happy .Right now i am on my way to the airport to deposite the $300 .
    Hope you understand me at this point since i am down in terms of cash.

    I just want to let you know that i am going to pay $550 and of course do believe the lord exists and i also believe that you wanted to cook my puppies once they arrive your location .
    If you cannot complete $100 please do not bother emailing me back
    Take care. As i earlier mentioned all i can come up with is $550 ok .I am not in need of all the proposals you are giving me ok .All i need is $100 to complete it and go to the airport and get the insurance for the puppies to leave the airport ok .If you cannot do that then lets both stay and the puppies go to the zoo

    Thanks
    Just try to complete the money $100 ok

    I am a Cameroonian man living near Yoande. I have been emailed by this this lady from the USA who offers to exchange money for my Yorkie puppies. Should I trust her? I have heard of scams where people send the puppies to the airport but the money never comes. Lots of Cameroonians have been ripped off like this.

Well i do not blame you for your findings neither will i be bitter of the seeming insult and accusal i just have to be myself by making you know that i am a responsible married woman and too old to play such foolish games.I am a mother 3 children married to a lawyer Barrister Denis NgwaChe
    Our eldest child is 16 years old and is a computer engineering student and the last 7 years. I myself i work as stores accountant to an oil company(OILYBIA)
    Well my husband was once a victim of scam when he attempted buying a laptop computer online. I witnessed the bitterness of playing over one's emotions over something that he/she is really in need of . I will not like any person not even my enemy to go through such an experience because because i know what it means. I am not in any way trying to convince you i am just making you know who exactly i am so if you can trust me then you will have th puppy. Believe me
    Sincerely,Katy Nash NgwaChe

    I was searching for a Persian kitten for a friend of mine. I came across this ad and eventually decided to email the advertiser. The response was similar to what has been said here on this forum. Already having many questions about the agreement and the weird reply, I searched the internet and found this site. Rest assured that I will not be sending any money out of pocket and I can only trust that my identity stays secure.
    My original plan was to drive to Texas and pick up the kitten. Not a bad drive from here. But the original seller informed me of my bad luck since the kitten had been adopted. There is no way I would purchase any animal without seeing pictures, etc. Oh, by the way, the person who adopted the cat sent me pictures. Three of them, all with a different pose but the same background. No pictures of an earlier kitten as he grew up or anything like I expected.
    Some of you may be wondering why I would even consider buying a pet over the internet. I was tired of searching for a Persian cat that seemed to be so highly priced. I already own a pedigree cat and bought it from a breeder in Montana. It was legit and no problem whatsoever. I had plenty of questions then since the cost was rather high (the cost was in the right price range for that particular cat). Everything fell into place. All I had to do was send a wire to the breeder and get confirmation of arrival at the airport. She gave me all her banking information so she went out on a limb. You see, I was familiar with the right way to purchase an animal from a breeder.
    This Western Union thing is a bunch of crap. There is no Western Union anywhere in this area. The drive to the closest airport is 2 hours one way. And, please, do not expect me to actually believe that the pet will be delivered to my doorstep. All pets shipped here come in on late flights and go the the pet claim area at the airport. Also, my daughter-in-law is a breeder so I know how she handles this process.
    This same advertiser has many similar scams. I became intrigued with this whole thing and decided to do some more referencing. If you are interested in pet monkeys, Yorkie puppies, parrots, long hair Chihuahua (is there one?), shi-tzu puppies, pythons, husky or pekingese puppies they are all out there. Oh, yes, don't forget the English bulldog. To give more emphasis to the listings, the monkeys, parrots, pekingese and Persians are all "new” listings.
    If you click on the private link to the side of the ad you can find gorgeous macaws for $350. If you want any type of pet the advertiser has a way to get it to you.
    With 50 listings per page and 28 pages and counting, this advertiser owns the entire continent of Africa and has at least 1400 animals available. So, be warned, don’t bite on this scam.
    It’s a shame that people have to resort to this type of tactic as a way to entice good people into paying for something that they really want but can’t possibly afford. I did check into a Persian rescue society but it is about 10 hours from where I live. I probably will look into that more now that I see what is going on.

    Crazy About Cats
    *As an afterthought I am going to reference characteristics on Persian eyes. This kitten had two different colored eyes. And, yes, after all this I checked out the post to put the website here and the site was no longer there.

    Hello all,
    I am so happy that I did my own research on "godblessamericas"!! They supposedy sold purebred Maltese puppies. The pictures I saw on their web site were ADORABlE!! Now I already have a female puppy named Princess Pearl, she is 6 months old and the sweetest and funniest puppy I have ever known. I purchased her through Byepuppiesdirect.com. She was flown in from Iowa and I live in Kent, WA. The reason I am sharing my story is because I am going to adopt or purchase a Maltese puppy for my best friends daughter. We think it will help her with her emotional issues she is going threw and she just loved my puppy soooo much and took awesome care of her. At any rate I found these guys saying that they do not sell the puppies, they just want to make sure they go to good homes and they ony ask for 200.00 to fly them from Africa. HELLO it sounded just a little to good to be true and it was. I paid 2,000. for my puppy. (only because we were going to breed her. Thats what you pay for a dog that you are going to breed for selling purposes or whatever, show dogs etc. Well when I asked for a reference they gave me a false e-mail address and a false name. So just make sure if you are going to purchase a animal on line, ask for A LOT of information and make sure that their company is reputable. Thank you all for sharing your stories. This is crazy how many people get ripped off!!

    Hello.
    Thanks very much for the response regarding our male and female
    Chihuahua puppies. They are presently ready to go and just to let you
    know, you are about taking in one of the finest Chihuahua puppies you
    will ever see. Remember you are adopting a man made breed and it is very important you get quality well bred Chihuahua puppies. Our beautiful home raised Chihuahua puppies are called Spencer and Cindy 14 weeks old now and have been treated with nothing but LOVE and will only go to good homes. They are up to date on shots and worming.. They weighed 1.2 at 11 weeks and will be approximately 2.5 pounds full grown
    Physique: They are super tiny cuties that will fit in the palm of your
    hands. Short-haired, beautiful color. Super small built with tiny-teeny
    features - just perfect.
    Personality: They Love to cuddle and give kisses. Loves to have their
    belly rubbed, although a little ticklish. Sleep’s with us at night. They will come with all health paper, some toys, food sample and a 1 year health guarantee. Spencer and Cindy love playing with other
    house hold pets and are very good with kids. I am giving them up because we just had our first baby and we hardly take care of them as we should have been doing. We don't give them the attention they deserve and so we thought giving them out to someone who will, is the right thing to do for them (Funny how a new born baby can change ones life around). If you would consider taking them in, all you would need to do is pay for their shipping fair to where ever you are located at. I am a medical doctor and I work at the National Research and Training Institution On Psychiatric Disabilities in South Cameroon and would be shipping from here. My new born baby and all my patients at the hospital whom I've got to take care of leaves me with so little time to really take care of them. I do not want to give them to people around here because they do not have any pet experience and besides that, some people here use domestic pets as food. One thing I have never seen in my entire life. I ship and deliver same day. They will not only be friends but also good family companions. If still interested, please let us know where you are located at so that we could find out how much it is going to cost to ship to you okay.
    Yours sincerely Franklin

    Hello April, I have checked and shipping them to LA is going to cost $391 for both puppies with delivery being at your home or work address. Please if the price if okay by you, send me the address to which you would want me to ship and deliver them okay. Be it your home or work address, just let me know. Also include the name of the closest airport to your location and your phone number(s) so that I can check for the availability of a pet flight to your location okay. One more thing. When would it be best for me to give you a call?

    Hi April,
    I got the address and made a little checkup on the flight days and there will be a flight due for LOUIS ARMSTRONG NEW ORLEANS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT tomorrow evening (Friday 20th). They are going to be shipped over night and delivered early Saturday 21th morning at the address you provided. Will that be okay by you? April if you can pay $231 I will complete the rest (as that’s what I have for now) and have them shipped to you
    and when you get the balance in the next two weeks, you can then reimburse me. To ship them to teh airport where you would be expeceted to pick them up will cost $351. If its what you prefer, please let me know. Please advice if this is okay with you.
    Below is my mailing address.
    Names: Ambeshi Louis
    Country: South Cameroon
    City: Douala
    Street: Bonaberi
    Code: 00237
    When you write out the check, take it to any western union money transfer and let them send the money to me okay. Copy out my address, take the check and go to any western union money transfer agency and tell them you want to send the money to me and they will do it. When sending the money, you will be expected to fill out a form. When filling it, there will be a section where you would be asked to give a test question and test answer for the transfer. Use “Who’s Greatest and the test question and for the test answer, use “GOD”. When you are done with the transfer, send me the money transfer control number (MTCN) okay. Without this number, I will not be able to collect the money. I will start processing the papers due for shipment so that when you send me the money, I should go pay for the shipping fee and ship them out at once okay. One more thing. Tell the western union agent who will be making the transfer that you want the money sent directly to the St. Peters Parish in Bonaberi Street so that the money will be sent close enough to my home where I would be able to go and collect it easily and faster okay. I live a long way out of town and if they send it to the western union agency in town, it take me an hour to get there, I will burn gas etc. So to save me the stress, please do it this way okay.
    Looking forward to reading from you soon.
    Peace Louis.

    Thats great. The money is being sent to Ambeshi Louis and the City would be Akwa and State is Doula. Out here, there are really no cities and states but I think that will do. When I get the money, pay for the shipping and have them shipped, I will obtain a tracking number for the delivery and flight details (time of take off, time of arrival, airlines etc) which I will then forward to you. When you go to the airport to pick them up, all you need is a valid Identification paper and the tracking number. Only then will they be given to you.

    There are many western union agencies here so I don't know why they would say that. Just go to a western union agency located in any bank and make the transfer there okay. Western union is one of the most famous money transfer agency would wide and also here in our country. If you can locate a western union agency in any big bank, they will be able to make the transfer. The country again is CAMEROON.

    Hi there April,
    how are you today? Hope every thing is moving on well. Good news. I picked up the funds already and I am done with the shipping arrangements. I am just coming from the airport. There is one little thing left though that you need to do in order that the pups are shipped to you immediately. This is for the good of the pups, for your own good and a guarantee that the money you have spend so far is not lost. There is nothing to it. It’s just making sure of what we are doing so that in case of any problems, your money will be not be lost. Spencer and Cindy are about to ship shipped now and, they are to be shipped with a life guarantee, full money back guarantee or a merchandise replacement guarantee (if that’s what you prefer).This guarantee is covered by a %100 refundable insurance policy. That is to say, shipping is guaranteed and for this guarantee to be effective, you have to get it covered by insuring the pups. Like I said, I have every thing in place but right now, I do not have any idea of the flight details and so cannot give you any information on that. I am really sorry for this but; like I learnt, it’s for your own good and for the good of the pups. What you need to do now is pay an insurance fee of $800 for both pups which will be refunded to you with a check upon delivery of the pups. What I am saying in details here is that, you need to send $800 so that I should use in paying for the insurance of Spencer and Cindy. This $800 will be refunded to you fully upon your collection of the pups. When I have paid for the insurance, I will be issued a receipt which I will forward to you. This receipt is what you will use in reclaiming the $800 you have paid for insurance if the pups get to you alive, healthy and uninjured. When the pups are delivered to you, you will be asked for this receipt and when you provide the receipt; your money will be refunded to the last dime. This does not only apply if you get the pups alive and healthy. Supposing you receive the pups and you are dissatisfied with the conditions in which the pups are delivered to you for whatever reason, you will have all your money refunded to you. It’s just a little sacrifice you need to make so that we will all be sure if the company gets at fault, you will not loose your money or the puppies. This is abrupt but its all for the good of the pups and in your favor. Every thing is in place right now and all you need do is pay for this insurance and they will be sent immediately to you. Please use the same address I gave you in sending the money and when you do, get back to me with the MTCN so that I should go collect the money, pay for the insurance and have them shipped. When I do, I will get the flight details and forward to you along side the insurance receipt. I await your urgent response.

    Thanks Louis.

    April, I am so sorry it had to come to this but regarding the circumstances surrounding this transaction, I think it would be best if it is done this way. I understand your financial situation but it is not like you will pay the money never to get it back. Immediately Spencer and Cindy are delivered to you, the money will be refunded in full. I am very worried about them being at the airport instead of being with you or me. Who knows what they are going through? Please try contacting some friends and relatives for help. I am sure they will be able to lend you the money and once you get the insurance money back, you can then reimburse them. Pease try and do something. There is no other arrangement we can make apart from paying for the insurance. I tried convincing them to ship the puppies without insurance but they refused. I don’t just know what to do. Please.

The airport will not release Spencer and Cindy to me and they threaten to quarantine them if we do not pay for the insurance fee in 48 hours. They will not give them back to me because the ownership papers have been changed to your names and now you are their sole owner. I am so confused. I don’t know what to do. If you decide to buy a teacup in the US, then we might loose Spencer and Cindy to quarantine. Please April lets not let this happen. I am ready to help in anyway I can. Please try to borrow money from your friends or relatives and then when you get the money back, you can then reimburse them. If they would have accepted giving them back to me, I would have taken them home and refunded your money but they wouldn’t.

    I came across an ad for a teacup female white maltese on a website. The dog is priced at $145 and located in Kansas. I emailed them telling them my friend was interested in the pup. They emailed me back telling me that they are in Cameroon as missionaries for the UN and the dog cannot enter the country due to laws. They told me they had 2 weeks to get the dog back to the USA and they were having to pay $5 a day to feed and have the dog cared for at the airport there. They specified that they be sent a money gram from walmart in the amount of $160. My friend sent them the money, then after they received it, they told us that the dog had to be insured for the flight for the amount of $380 and that it had to be paid before the dog could be sent. The airport even sent us an email and the dog was to be flown in on CamAirLines. My friend and me saw red flags and she did not send the so-called insurance money. They then began calling her on her telephone asking for the money. I then began searching for the airline website and it never came up. So, then I decided to come to the airport site and found this.
    Luckily, I did talk to Walmart about all this and they told me the money can be re-imbursed since all this is a scam.

This is so wrong and I agree with MBW I dont think they need any money for food now they have scamed so many people out of alot of money. And the sad thing is the Christian station here in Georgia is trying to get people to donate money to send over there to feed the hungry. I think they need to read all of this they might reconsider sending money over there.
