- I just got an email for a Dr. Mole. His ad talks about his two yorkies goes into great detail and he only wanted $400. Screaming deal right?? Nope. Scam. I emailed her because her number went to a voicemail service. I just got the email back. HE told me that his wife recently died and as a doctor he is so busy that he cannot take care of both of the dogs. He just transferred to Niageria where he is working at an AIDS hospital. He took the dogs with him but he doesn't think they can handle the heat. So he's just asking for the shipping costs of getting to me...to a great home...because "God must have directed my soul to him". riiight. Why would you put your recently deceased wife's name on the ad?? Sorry I don't trust people from Niageria.
- On all KSL ads the seller lists a location. All of the ones are in Utah or Idaho, however their numbers are not. I've googled many numbers to find that they don't exist for they are a land line some where outside of Utah. No where in the ad does it mention that they will ship you the ad if you'll provide them with your full name, address, phone, etc. Seriously? I've ran into more than five of these ads. sketchy...sketchy...sketchy
- I had one scammer so much as g chat with me today trying to convince me to adopt her poor little puppies who cannot live in her apartment because her landlord has forbidden it. I asked who the pet delivery service was. She gave me the website. http://www.petsanidelpagetl.page.tl/ I don't trust it. They spelled secure server as secured sever. red flag number one. Next on the credit card page instead of having it supported by Verisign or another online transaction agency they had you type in what travel info was needed to make it seem legit and then type your name, credit card number, date card was created, billing address, expiration date and the verification code in an email type message red flag two. When I told the lady that I didn't trust it and I should be able to choose one I trust since I'm the one paying for it she said she'd rather use this one because she'd used it before and knew it was safe. I told her I had no proof of that so she said exactly so lets try it. No thanks. I don't trust it or you. I asked her if she was going to send me a dead dog and she rambled on and on about how she loved the dogs and didn't want to give them up but had no choice. Here is a bit of our conversation.
mary: i understandand please donnot feel influenceddo make your right choiceand please make sure to think very well aswelli don't want the fact that i want the babies to go really quick influence you in your Decision ,OK ??
me: Please answer my question about the puppy and carrier
mary: i don't understand please
me: the puppy is a living breathing puppy right?
mary: what do you meanthey are alrigh
me: You aren't trying to ship me a dead puppy are you?
mary: you know we have looked around for a cheaper apartment around here just to change so that we can keep the puppies but to no avail we would have realy Loved to keep the puppy Sent at 9:54 AM on Tuesday
mary: if only we could find another cheaper apartment close to our Job site like this onelike we would have been more than Greatfull to GOD because we will get the opportunity to keep the babies
me: How do I know I won't get a DEAD puppy?
mary: do you think the Agency will ship a dead puppydo the puppies look like they are Dead ??
me: I have no idea. I just want to make sure I'm not getting some corpse of a dog or one that is so sickly that it's going to die.Sorry. I'm not trying to offend you. I'm just checking
mary: they won't ship a puppy without carying out all the neccesary Health Check ups
Please note that I knew I wasn't getting this puppy. I didn't trust her from the beginning but I wanted to see what she'd say to all my questions and observations.
So buyer beware out there! Don't worry we aren't getting any of these dogs. I'm not stupid like these people who claim they grew up in Utah but can't speak english very well. I just wanted to share my scammer experiences!
Note: KSL is amazing. Be internet savvy and you'll get a ton of great deals. We bought our coffee table and end tables, golf clubs, cell phone, etc on KSL so it really is amazing.
