Thread: Facebook scam?

  1. #13

    Default Re: Facebook scam?

    I actually talked with "KELVIN" tonight on the telephone - I received the same message on facebook about the dying grandma, five bulldog puppies, eleven weeks old, AKC registered, shots etc. that he and his partner were moving to Brazil to live and were not looking for money, just good homes, even for just one of the puppies all you would have to pay is the shipping, and he sent me a copy of the shipping invoice as "proof". However, when I said I would only deal COD on the phone suddenly he had to deal with his daughter cos his wife was working, he called back and said he wanted to talk on the "internet" hmmmmmmmmm - then gave me the shipping agent information, after a search on Jodi Decrew in CA I got the facebook scam and signed up to be a member here . . . thanks so much for your information here hope this helps others like it has me . . . such a shame people has to be so nasty and especially deceitful involving such a wonderful breed as our beloved bulls . . . I did mark his message on facebook as a scam so hopefully they will do something about it.

    Guess what message I JUST got in my inbox on facebook???

    We periodically have a litter of English Bulldogs in our home and that's because my grandma was committed to raising healthy, happy bullies and sharing her knowledge and love of the breed. She died last March at 82.

    So currently we have seven pups looking for homes: five female/two male.. red and whites, white and brindle and fawn and white. AKC registered, taking DHLPP shots. With our present jobs my partner and I have at hand, we won't be able to take care of the puppies cos we would be moving to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. So we are giving them out to caring dog lovers who would take good care of them.

    If interested in having them or at least one or you know anyone who might be interested, contact me here or at shoreshouse001th@gmail.com and you can send my email to the interested one to contact me. Also contact us with any questions you may have.

    Hope to read from you soon. Please contact us on shoreshouse001th@gmail.com.

    Thanks,

    Kelvin

    Outrageous...it's almost as bad as the people who take out ads in the newspaper classified section that are scam artists. The sad part is, they wouldn't do it unless people fall for it.

    Unfortunately ... probably not. This is somebody who has probably never owned or been near a bulldog in his life. It's just some punk who is just trying to con people out of their money. He has no morals, values or conscience ... but I always believe "what goes around, comes around"!!!

    Hi all:

    I found your thread because I was doing some cross validation as I got the same e-mail, same pictures (see attached), spoke with the guy and got the same lines. I was fairly certain it was a scam but was so desperate to rescue English bulldog puppies I almost fell for it.

    As I own two companies, I would never pay anyone via Western Union. As I am a hard core IT geek, I always search and cross-reference EVERYTHING before committing myself. Thanks so much for this thread, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

    Gratefully,
    -Virginia

    PS- Here is the website I was directed to in order to view both the bulldogs and the "happy" family: http://canineluv.webs.com/apps/photo...bumid=10453804

    Thanks... I had the bulldog of my dreams. He was the best friend, the best companion, the best everything. I still miss him. I uploaded some pictures for everyone to see.

    BTW, if anyone knows of puppies or young dogs, I'm interested. I am fine with rescuing, I actually prefer it. I rescued Winston from a dog fighting ring... he was used as bait for pit bulls to practice on.
