    Default Facebook scam?

    Hey guys!
    Today I got on facebook just to see what was going on, and when I signed on I noticed I had a message.. This is what it said and it was from Kelvin Tap. And it was sent @ 3:54 am.



    "HI DANNY, ENGLISH BULLDOG PUPPIES!!!!!!!!


    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"



    I'm thinking SCAM! One they are moving out of the country and two no one just gives up a litter, plus no ages, no talks about mom. has to be fake. What do u all think?

    Totally a scam! I was told this same 'story' about 6 months ago. They are still moving to Brazil? Does it take 6 months to move to Brazil? The puppies are STILL PUPPIES???

    SCAM!!!

    I think @catorres8988 got this same message about 2 months ago too!

    Definitely think its a scam, if you emailed them they'd probably say all you need to pay is the shipping.

    Yes, e-mail them and see what they say. I am pretty sure it was "Kelvin" who messaged @catorres8988 too.

    Sounds really fishy, doesn't it? Too bad you can't find out where this guy is located and tell him you're local and that you'll just come pick them up. Would sure be interesting to see what he says then...

    I have been emailing this guy for the past couple of days wanting one of his EB puppies but wondering why they wouldn't sell anywhere close to where he lived for that price ($320 to ship one, crate included and $420 to ship two in one crate). He is in California and I am in Alabama. He is VERY pushy about finding out what airport he should send the puppy to. I told him I did not think brachiocephalic dogs could be shipped by air and he assured me his grandmother, who has always bred these dogs for the betterment of their breed, had a specific shipper she used and knew what they were doing. Oh, he is having to do this instead of grandma because she died in March of this year. This shipper, he tells me tonight, is 64 years old, Jodi Decew from Riverside, CA. When I looked her up she is in her mid to late 40's. I went to a fraud alert website and they said if the seller is adamant about using Western Union and anyone you want to talk to by phone is hard of hearing, beware. Yep, according to him, just yesterday, Jodi told him her paypal account is down right now and I can't call her because she is hard of hearing. When I inform him of all I have learned about WU and hard of hearing sellers he sends me a photo of a receipt from a previous customer to this Jodi person's address. What does that prove? Nada Oh, he also told me grandma, nor he, ever sold any of the bulldog puppies they only sent them for the shipping price. Yeah, right.
