"This tiny little boy and girls will just take your heart away! They have that
tiny teddy bear face & a huge thick coat! they are very playful & they
have a lovable personality! They also likes to strut her stuff & prance
around to show off. This tiny boy and girls is definitely a little DIVA. They
should mature to aprox 4 lbs as an adult! These puppies are current on all
vaccinations and de-wormings; 100% Lifetime Health Guarantee.They are 13weeks old .Attach to this mail you shall fine some of their pictures hope you shall love them.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 her or give them to someone?
5...How soon will you want to take pups or pup?

origin .but presently i am in
SINGAPORE for a mission. I work for the UN Rehabilitation Program for
Poor countries. So as you can see i have no time to take care of them
and i loss my wife last 2 weeks in a car accident.my pups are here with
me in SINGAPORE.so if u are still interested in my pups. Then i shall put
them through with a delivery agency so that they delivery them over to
you in Malaysia. They shall do the delivery on my behalf. you shall
pay to the just for the cost of the deliver which is RM600. attached
to this mail you will find my PASSPORT this is just to proof to you how real i am., like i told you i am given them on a free adoption.

I shall send along side all the health documents and papers so they shall be presented at your Custom Authority to ensure that they are safe and free from all illnesses. If that is going to be ok by you, then I shall need your Contact Details that is

Names in Full,
State/Province,

Contact Numbers,
Fax Number if any.
Nearest Airport.

With this details, i shall be able to put her through with the agency
so they can delivery them right at your doorsteps. Thanks for your
every concern and i look forward to read from you soonest.

One more thing, Promise me you shall take good care of her and keep me

Default Re: Scam? Yes or not?

YES! 100% SCAM!

Sportycat, pls read older post in PF on scam alert. The previous scam tactic is simmiliar.

-Malaysia working in Sin (they are actually fr Africa but which part can't rmb)
-Puppy belong to daughter but she pass away, so buzy working and mourning mother wanna give puppy away to a loving home
-Ask same questions. eg: wats ur dog experience, got children etc

Lastly ..... Puppy is free but you gotto pay the transportation fee which is $600. Ask to to bank into a certain account.

If you didn't bank in by certain date that the scam-er fix, they will cont sent u email and preasure u to do so.

Good thing you are cautious and do your search 1st in PF. Pls dun fall for this. Good luck!

Default Re: Scam? Yes or not?

Sportycat,

The answer is most certainly YES. That is a scam. But it's not a scam to get people to buy dogs. Did you ever see a dog? No! You saw a photo of dogs and a bunch of promises.

Look at the advertisement. "100% Lifetime Health Guarantee"
Now, tell me. Does that make sense? If the dog should fall ill and die in 5 years, is he going to refund your money?

This also nonsense: There is no "UN Rehabilitation Program for Poor countries." Doesn't exist, and if it did, do you think they'd be posting people in Singapore?!?

The PF administrators opened the Scams section to educate us all about scams like this. Another member just posted her own sad experience with this same scam (in her case, she paid for the transport for "free" British short-hair kittens, banking money into an account in Cameroon.) It sounds like you stopped short of giving these con-men any money, which is good, and I hope you didn't give them any of your personal details, because identity theft is another serious risk.

I'd like to figure out a way to catch these con-men & feed them to my cat...
