    Default English Bulldog Scam on facebook Robin Blackstock

    Guess what I got in my inbox this morning 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,

    Robin
    This is a scam, do not fall for it! This guy or girl keeps making up false names and prays on English Bulldog owners. They will tell you all you need to do is pay for the shipping.

    I have been told that you can ship a dog C.O.D. where you pay the airline directly for delivery of a pup or dog. NO need to send someone a shipping fee! If people know that, then this scam will come to a quick end!

    Got this today... A little different but still the same!

    We periodically have a litter of English Bulldogs in our home and that's because my mother was committed to raising healthy, happy bullies and sharing her knowledge and love of the breed. She died last August at 71.

    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 the Bahamas. So we are giving them out to caring dog lovers who would take good care of them. We raise all of our bulldogs in our home and our bulldogs are well socialized and very kid friendly as they are raised with our two children that are 3 and 5 years old.

    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,

    So I sent this back.. (Sorry for the expletives but I was enraged at the time, I'll edit them out). He promptly unfriended me...

    Just got online to do my due diligence in finding out a little more about you since I have obviously purchased thousands of dollars worth of dogs from breeders in the past, all with some sort of paper trail on way or the other. What I found was most disturbing... Apparently you have been using this same scam with the same email for a while. Except you used to be moving to Brazil and now its the Bahamas or something. Your Grandma died in March at age 82 and now your mom died in August at 71. Tough year... But your grandma had your mom at 11? Those are some impressive reproductive organs...

    Anyway... F*** off... Sorry I almost fell for this... Good thing I'm more intelligent than you. A little tip... I'll be reporting this to the Facebook admins so get another screen name and pray on some more good natured dog lovers you sorry piece of s***... and maybe change your mass email and email address; it isn't even that clever. I was just too busy today to properly research you... I hope your Holiday season is miserable and that you get the lump of coal in your stocking that you deserve...

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm still a tad livid, but so thankful that this website is online to inform me of this scam. I am now going to go love on the 2 bulldogs I already have... HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

    Wow, one more reason I don't join facebook. Loved the part about the 11 year old having a baby. Pretty sharp!

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Hello Everyone-

    I tonight found this forum as I searched via the net "Rob B Bullies' as I got an unusal email stating his wife died at the age of 41 and had english bulldogs to go to good loving homes and the exact verbage as above and below. The long and short of this is- I just was a victim on Feb 14th through a man named or what he calls himself 'Philip Wilson' and I need to relook at his email address as he was a breeder listed when I went on a search on the internet. He then referred me to a woman who calls herself "Woman of God" Rebekah Kohn that does missionary work in UK and can no longer take care of her puppies. She said all I had to do was pay for the shipping- well I am an intelligent woman (or so I thought) and I know I still am -however I am raw with emotion and I let my heart get in the way of my mind/intelligence. I never dealt with Western Union and now that this has occurred I realized this is one of the biggest NO-NO's to do and never to send money via Western Union. Needless to say- I am out of $1900. sent to UK and no puppies More than anything -I want justice to be served, but it appears Western Union can not do anything- I reported it to them directly with the tracking numbers- names that were given etc but nothing- I am a single mother who really had no business spending that kind of money but have always wanted to get these beautiful human friends and surprise my daughter. If anyone has had any similiar advice and or way to get these people behind bars- please advise- I can not afford legal fees but if there is a way to get justice served please inform me. I am floored that these scams are so rapid- and these people can be all one in the same since how was I found on facebook just the week after myself as the victim.

    Sorry you were taken. I can't offer any suggestions for getting your money back. Just sympathy.

    This is actually a HUGE scam that is going on in multiple forums all over the country and not just bulldogs - any highly desired dog. My husband and I discovered this scam a few years ago when we were looking for bullies. They are SO bold that they will often go to local newspapers and radio stations! I'm sure they figure people trust their local newspaper and/or radio station. I just put a stop to one at Christmas time ... I was so upset that our local radio station doesn't look more into who they are allowing to advertise.

    Here's how I found it. My doggie sitter is a co-worker's daughter (she's 19 and has wanted an EB her whole life, so she often keep Chunk company because she loves him so much!). My co-worker heard an ad on the local radio station about two EBs for FREE ADOPTION about 2 weeks before Christmas. She didn't tell her daughter, but told me so I could look into it. I called the number and it was out of service. The next day it was on again but with an email address; of course, I wrote an email and received one back like the one above. I instantly called the radio station and asked for the manager of their advertising dept. He apologized and told me it would be taken off the air asap, just to please send him the emails. I asked him if they could please run a service announcement so no one got taken for a lot of $, especially at Christmas time. I feel that people probably go a little further trying to get things they want at that time of year. He never answered whether he would do that - I really hope no one lost money on it. Scammers are the WORST!!!
