Story from Seller

My story is a variation of what's mentioned here. I am in the process of rehoming my dogs. I posted them for sale on 4 different websites. Within a matter of hours I received a text inquiring about 1 of my dogs. All seemed to go well until the potential buyer said his shipper wasn't available. He told me that he sent his shipper to Africa to pick up artwork for him. I wondered why he would send his shipper to Africa and not arrange her return trip to the states since he had no idea that I would be selling my dog. I informed the buyer that I would hold my dog until he could arrange shipment. Instead he told me that he sent me a cashier's check for the price of my dog as well as the shipping fee that he expected me to send via moneygram to his shipper who just so happened to be in Nigeria. What I received was a personal check. I let the buyer know that my bank would put a 3 day hold on his check and that I'd send the money after the check cleared. The buyer wanted me to send a portion of the money ($900) to the shipper right away and send him the 8 digit moneygram code. I told him I could not do that as I was out of town but would attempt to cash the check upon my arrival home. I deposited the check into my account. My bank put a 3 day hold on most of the funds as they stated they never did business with this particular bank. I did found it odd that the address listed on the check was from Minnesota or Wisconsin not Las Vegas where the buyer claimed he lived. People move though so I let it slide. My bank called me 2 days later and said they were putting a 7 day hold on the entire amount as they had confidential information that the check would not clear. I immediately notified the buyer that there was now a 7 day hold on his check and that I would not be sending out any money to the shipper until it cleared. He told me he did not understand. I told him either his check would clear after 7 days or it would bounce. He has yet to respond back. My guess is that he believed I would send my own money to the shipper since I had deposited his check. That wasn't going to happen as I know better. I think it's important that potential sellers be aware of this scam as well as those seeking to acquire pets.

PAYMENT AND SHIPPING ARRANGEMENT

Seller

Hello Ken:
These pups belong to a friend of mine in RI. She is not fond of shipping her dogs. Her preference is to have the buyer come and pick up the pup directly. To be honest when I have my litters ...my husband and I refuse to ship them any where....especially at this time of the year. It is very traumatic experience for a baby. If you check www.petfinders.com there are several breeders that will ship. Sorry for the inconvenience....
Karen

Scammer

In respect of the shipping,I have a shipping agent that will take care of the shipment because i have other consignment with him for shipping to the same destination. Furtheremore, I have a Sales clerk in UNITED STATE(US) who will send A check Of $1800 and has promised to send the payment to you on mybehalf in the remaining balance being the excess fund via western union to the shipping agent who is coming for the Pick up.This Enables Him to include the item in his log book for shipment inorder for him to come for the pick up and he has other consignment That the he Will pick up and ship to the same destination. Conclusively,I want you to send your Name , Address and phone Number in order for payment effection.. Payment drawn in US funds.I look forward to hearing from you soonest.
