The Great Nigerian Puppy Scam

7 08 2007

 maltese

The following is two email conversations I had with people who wanted to sell me a dog.  I live in Denver, which is neither in Nigeria nor Morocco, so needless to say, I was a little bit skeptical.  I decided to keep emailing them until they stopped writing back.  In the process I found out that you can get an email scammer to admit to almost anything; including their belief that you can mate a Maltese with a ferret and that they want to be joined in Marriage with the lyrics to the Pink Floyd song, “Money”.

The conversations here appear full and unedited, save for the fact that I’ve removed my email address in appearing in any of them.  Enjoy!

Sophie sounds like a great dog.  I’m curious, what kind of work do you do in Nigeria?  Also, I didn’t think you could enter the United States with an animal, unless you’ve got a permit or something – is that not true? I’ll need to find a Western Union.  How much do you estimate shipping will cost?  it seems like it would be a lot. [Quoted text hidden]

What are your thoughts about the United States’ funding of Abstinence only sex education in Africa?  With Africa having the highest rate of HIV infection in the world, don’t you think that our time and money should be spent teaching people how to have safe sex when they do have sex, instead of making sure that they’re ignorant when they do?  I’m interested to hear your thoughts as a Nigerian.

LOL….I enjoyed reading the entire email contents. I happen to have a friend who is a dog lover (we belong to a same online petlover community). She received something similar to yours but this guy wrote from Australia. Same MO…just different location.

This was tooo funny. I saw something on TV about a scam involving pugs or boxers or some such flat-faced dog, but I didn’t really get it. Now I get it and I had a great laugh in the bargain.

Hi to all, especially krystalchampagne

I am in Australia, and I work at a major newspaper, processing hundreds of emails each week which are from people wanting to advertise in Classifieds.

I routinely delete up to ten emails a week referring to the sale of “AKC registered” puppies of different kinds. Many of these emails purport to be from people in Australia, who of course don’t realise they are sending to people who ARE in Australia. I only need to read the supposed contact details of these scammers for a millisecond, before deleting them. They always get the postcode wrong, or include a suburb which doesn’t exist, and they never have a logical or contactable phone number. LOSERS. These people are NOT in Australia though. PS I had a good laugh at Mitchell’s offering.

so tyhis is a funny story but listen to mine. So Ive been looking for a teacup chihuahua for a long time now. only a couple days ao i stumble along this add. it sounded prefec and I was very very gulable. This guy i had talked to about the puppy i anted sounded so sweet asking me if i was going to take care of his puppy well. you see he told me he was in africa and was on a cristian mission over there. i didnt really ever think anything about it. Im young and havent been exposed to much of this in my life. (not that Im blaiming my stupidioty on my age or anything) but anyways the og sounded perfect so i wired him the money and waited…..waited….waited…. he told me to pick it up at the airport and i waited at the airpor which was an hour and a half away from where i live. the flight agents looked at eachother and ‘oh noo another nigeria thing’ right there i wanted to just freak out. I called the guy back and he had told me that it needed a crate to fly and convinced me once again that i needed to send only $50.00 more dollars to get it and he score up and down that he would prove it. Nothing came i was fooled once again. So i told myself i didnt want to let this slip. i googled the address he’s given me (543 whesu cresent…..) and this website had popped up. right then i knew by the heading it was a scam. im upset and puppyless and out of all of this i really just wanted to have that dog. but i guess this is the way life works and these are some of the people in the world that you might stumble along everyday.

Haha this is to much, despite my girlfriend falling for this scam, as stupid as it was, reading all this made me laugh as I was doing the same to these people trying to sell me a yorkie. As of right now they are doing an investigation of it and hope to get my money back if not that then people get a little justice out of this. The guy scamming us was from Nigera as well and Kayla’s story is pretty well the exact same as mine, I need to buy a calling card to call these people with the “customs numbers” they gave me which dont match any Nigerian customs numbers as I contacted Canadian customs and they said No. I have it set up with another account where he wants me to wire him 100$ and western union will do nothing to help me with it to catch the guy who comes to pick up the money. I reported WesternUnion to the BBB and they are doing a full investigation on western union, I found out they were still sending money to these people in Nigera even though the pick up name was red flagged over a month ago, this man was still going there collecting money, Western Union is a fraud in itself. I have basically given shit to many companies to get them to help so heres hoping something comes about.

These two email threads make great reading.

I haven’t owned a dog for years, but I’ve been looking for a flat to rent in France and had an email back in response to an advert from an individual which sounded a bit suspicious … I googled the name and arrived here. I’m really grateful that you posted these whole threads – not just for their amusement factor, but also so people like myself don’t get reeled in!

Well it appears that our Nigerian Puppy Scam guy is also into apartment scams. I came across an ad for a flat that looked too good to be true, but decided to email him anyways. Finding his reply to be extremely creepy and unusual, I ran a search on his name (Jim Buckner) and discovered he had sent someone an identical response for a fraudulent apartment ad in Paris, and then I came across this site as well, where payment for the puppy is to be made to a Jim Buckner. Note the use of the word “dear” at the beginning of the emails, as well as the religious references – obviously the same guy. Weirdo!

Here’s the email he sent me:

I recently responded to an add for a free Yorkshire Terrier puppy listed with http://www.Kijiji.ca. The man posing as (Rev. Jim Buckner) responded to my email asking for $200.00 for shipping and handling for his puppy. He told me that the puppy was registered, had all it’s shots and wouldn’t be quarantined because it was born in the United States. I”m from Canada so I was a little concerned when he said that. He now has my home email, work email and my home and work phone number. He has contacted me by phone and is very persistant on my sending the money so his puppy will have a home. I can’t believe it. So, this person is posting on the above site.

So is so dearly missed and we have been waiting for a blessing like Tess for a while now. Tess will be loved so much by her two new brothers who are very loving and playful. She will have me my mom and my younger brother to spoil her. So I would like to pay directly to the airport there let me know how that transaction will work.

Hello there,
This is Tony Amanda’s room mate. Our greatest concern is locating a loving Home for Tess. I have been so concern knowing the person that is going to be taking my little baby.I will like to know if you have ever own a maltese puppy before.
Tess has been a very good companion to me. The informations were ok.So for us to proceed with the adoption, you will have to pay for the shipping fee. You can either pay that at the airport or to Amanda, she will be the one to take care of the adoption papers and the change of ownership papers at the airport. So if you will need to pay directly to the airport here, let us know.
I will attach a pic of me and Tess.

Best regards Tony.

Hello Krystal,
Thanks for the mailing back.So happy you are going to send me monthly updates.I have never done this before but i have already talk with the airlines i will be using in shipping and the told me as long
as the pup come threw customs with cites permit from life
stock,shipping license,insurance papers,transfer of ownership
documents from sender to receiver,vet checks and
finally registration papers, he will go right threw
without any problem ok.I have already put almost all the document together and what is lacking is the transfer of ownership papers that is going to be done at the airport ok. So for us to proceed with the
shipment you just need to email me with the
nearest airport to your locality,your full names and
finally two phone numbers so that i can do the change of
ownership papers.the names should be the one on your
ID.The shipping is going to take 8-9 hrs.
The more reason why i’m giving her for studies is because i
just newly relocated and i’m so committed with
my studies couple up with the harsh climatic
conditions that thus disturb her a lot.The shipping is going to cost $190 and that’s all you will be paying for.
Accept kisses from Tess.

Thank you Amanda

She will be in a loving home for sure we currently have 2 other dogs who are still young and playful and are poms so are small as well. The reason why I would like a maltese is because we use to have one and she died 2 years ago, she was the dog i grew up with and i miss having her around. She would be very loved and spoiled in our home as well as our hearts. We will send monthly updates it would not be a problem at all. If you would like to discuss with me more on that phone that would be great.

pet,she will be a very nice and close companion for
you and my priority is not the asking price but a nice
home for her,Im presently located in Cameroon for
studies and will be shipping her from there. Sorry for

Just so other people know, the scammer is at it again with w NEW NAME!!!! I almost fell for the scam myself, good thing I found this site before that happened. His new name seems to be Rev Brown Lowen or, David Lowen. Here are the e-mails.

Hello,

It has been a hard time trying to get a nice person for the lovely apartment. It was formally occupied by my little brother before he left for his present location for his final project with Globalcom NIG which will last him 3 years. He left his pet parrot and some other things I had to get new home and now I still have to get a nice person/family for the apartment.

All documents and keys are with him and he is ready to bargain on the price if he is ok with you taking the apartment over. The apartment has an up dated living room, a kitchen a toilet and a bedroom. The Hydro, washer and security is in tact and will be ok for any modern living environment and well furnished.

Euro 600 is the rent fee per month and if you feel this is ok by you reply back so that I know what should be done next. He can send you the keys and document at any time via DHL for faster delivery to you so you can go and have a look at the apartment.

Thank You

Rev Lowen

Hello Dear,

Thanks for your mail,i really appreciate your interest and concern towards this lovely home.My little brother Mst David Lowen is the real owner of the place and I am left as the caretaker since he is out of the country,though im kind of busy also but i have promise to help look for a responsible person to live in there. The apartment is already available since last 2 months and will be free for the next 3 years but my little brother was not ready to give the place out to any one. He was afraid the tenant will spoil the flashy things and destroy the place.

He has internet connected to the place and a car park. I know my brother to be a very neat and expensive young man and he would need some one like him to be living in the place. He is not ready to negotiate the first 3 months advance rent payment. He told me he is forwarding the keys only to the new tenant after he confirmed the advance payment of 3 months.For the payment i will let you know maybe it can reduce.The rent fee is included utilities,gaz/electricity/internet.

I see no reason why i should give you the address for now when,but i think it’s good to give you the address where is suited so that you can be familiar with the area.Here is the address you can go take a view of the area if you like but note that you can see inside.

Address: Rue Bailleul, 65 1e Arr PARIS 75004 France

He wishes to have some relevant information from you so you are expected to carefully fill out the form below or just simply reply back with answers to the questions. I will also forward all your answers to him today to make the process faster.

FILL OUT THE FORM BELLOW

oh my goodness that is great news for us! I am definetly not a breeder and I dont have any kids. I currently have a 2yr old female shihtzu who is very very healthy and she’s a big ball of fun. I am willing to pay all health expenses for these babies. Now, I dont mind paying for their transportation fee but also, i guess i cant help thinking that this is not a scam. i am willing to pay half of the transportation fee as long as you can provide me with the airline and i guess the tracking #. And will pay the rest once i get a confirmation on my end. Or let me know if theres any other way for the payments?

I will provide you though with all of my informations so we can get an accurate information from the airline. Btw, im from Canada, I hope that is not a problem at all.

And the nearest airport would be PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT in Toronto.

Also, I dont know any rules & regulations for shipping animals via plane here in Canada. But i do know that for some countries some puppies are held for quarantine and these could take up to months. I’ll do some research on my own because i want these puppies to have a safe flight and no hassle.

Again, Thank you so much for your time. I hope i hear from you soon.

I had the same thing happen to me…here’s what i have:

Would you happen to have any more pictures?
I do have a local vet that I can take the puppy to if I need to, and I have 2 children, they absolutely love puppies and I know they will be overjoyed to have her. Please get back to me to let me know. Thanks again!

On the site where I found you, it tells me on there not to send money before I receive the puppy. I would definately LOVE to adopt this puppy—my wife has wanted one for a long time. I was wondering if there was anyway we could meet. You said you were in Cameron right? I figure we could meet about half way. I would love to do this as soon as possible. Please let me know if this sounds good to you. I have already shown the pictures to my wife and she’s already in love!! Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!!!

so, i wrote them back and this is what i said:
I got online and did some research and i found out that the dog does not have to have traveling insurance. it just has to have a clean bill of health , which you say this puppy does. i am contacting the FBI about this. You will be turned in along with the “airline”. I know it was my own fault for falling into this trap, but what you should know is that with the $120.00 I already paid and if I paid the $580.00, that would equal an even $600.00. Thats just not right. My wife and children were so excited and you along with the airline had to do something like this. I can pretty much guarantee I will not hear back from you

But i did hear back from the airline and the lady:

Lady: the puppy is at the airport for real. the airport just mailed me and said, you spoke so rude to them.
i will try to see what i can do.

Airline: DEAR SIR,
WE DO NOT REPLY SUCH SUSPICIOUS E-MAILS WHICH KEEP US IN SUSPENSE. SO TRY TO MIND THE WAY YOU MAIL AN AIRLINE. THE PUPPY NEEDS AN INTERNATIONAL INSURANCE LISENCE BEFORE IT CAN BE SHIPPED INTO THE USA. HOPE YOU KNOW THAT. IT IS ILLEGAL TO SHIP THE PUPPY WITHOUT THAT.
STAY BLESSED AND GET BACK TO US ASAP.

I couldnt figure out if that was a threat or not. Lol but anyways, I hate that I got my wife’s hopes up for nothing. Never do business overseas!!! I learned the hard way.

I hope you don’t mind but I would like to slip in my blog, chicaneryconsscams.blogspot.com, which I ‘showcase’ rental scammers. It would be hard to explain how deeply they have infested the internet world but,
as an example, I am currently tracking one ad they use which has been used across Canada, Europe, Australia…

Be careful out there….

Hello, I was reading all of the postings. My child had the same problem. She replyed to a free puppy add on freepuppylistings.com . They replied for her to send money for shipping, she sent it to a suposed to be shipping Agent. Then she e-mailed asking what is going on with my puppy, and was told it was held up because they did not have the proper shipping crate, and it would cost more money. So she sent more money and e-mailed Marry Welsh back asking when is her puppy going to be shipped. This time she was told the puppy was shipped, but there was a problem. They held the dog at customes so it caused a delay and now the costumes man wanted another $50.00. They said the puppy was shipped but before she can pick it up Marry had to pay custumes $50.00., and Marry don’t know when she will have the money. So still no puppy, but She is still promising my child she sent the puppy. Marry can not give us any info , besides the puppy will be at our airport tommarrow some time. I feel so bed for my child, I wish I could do something .

I am in Houston and there was an ad in our local paper for a t-cup yorkie. FREE of course..if you pay 200$ shipping fee. From reading your stories, I’m sure that it would have been more later on. And believe it or not , the contact name they sent me was for Jim Buckner in Victoria Island Lagos Nigeria. The story was the exact same..Im in Africa on a mission trip and the poor little darling can’t take the weather, it’s so harsh on her..Why the hell take a little baby puppy to Africa in the first place…HELLO!!! Man this guy gets around!!! And to think that they would use God and His work in the scam. What jerks!! My fiance,who is a policeman, told me to beware of all of this that he smelled a scam. Sure enough some of his friends had heard of things like this and I got to looking around the internet. I looked up Jim’s name and I found this site. I am very happy that I found out all this information because I would hate to be out of the money, but especially I am bery disappointed because my daughter was very excited about getting a puppy. I will look for reliable breeders in my area from now on. Thanks to all for the helpful info. Take care all and best wishes.

HI, This is fantastic!! So glad you documented the series of emails and others have added to it!1 We need to be contacting the websites andletting them know that that these ads are scams and to take them off!! I too replied to an ad about a fee Yorkie puppy with identical information as you received and most of the others as well. I wrote a long letter stating a sad tale of my advanced years and having no money, just the little I have to buy food each week. I didn’t think I could find that kinda of money to pay for shipping. I waited to see if they would acknowledge anything stated, but the reply was same as before , just send the money so you can get the dog!1 Then I said I had friends in Nigeria and could come by and see the puppy to verify its existence and perhaps they could arrange the shipping themselves. Well of course that got no reply either LOL! Just send the money!! I then replied with I can’t understand why you don’t even mention the things I write to you. Are you reading them? That was the end of the transactions!! They figured this was too difficult to lie their way into the money!!
So glad that others haven’t been taken in and feel bad for those who believe the best in people and are taken advantage of!!
Sincerely, Lorraine

Yeah,

almost fell for this. It’s a rental scam add on http://www.Kijiji.ca for a 3 bdr. house in SE, Calgary for $700/month. I even argued with my wife about this “opportunity” and how we can save some money for university. I WAS REALLY STUPID! Thanks guys for posting this info here, hope that more people will see these posts and not fall for this …

I wonder how many people like us (new in Canada, Calgary) actually believe that this is an opportunity and send money to these crooks.

This is our correspondence:

Thank you for your mail,

I am glad to hear from you about renting the house.I was a little bit apprehensive about using this medium.I only felt open to it a couple of months ago.It is really amazing what the internet is doing for the Christian ministry and the propagation of the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to far and remote places of the earth.I now get my daily Bible reading from the internet instaed of reading through a book.

Aboout renting the house, I am the owner of the house which you intend renting and I lived in the house with my spouse Elizabeth and my twin sons Gabriel and Gordon and our family dog Sparkie.The reason for putting the house up for rent is as a result of my transfer to Estonia to head the Sacred Hearts Mission house branch.

The house holds lots of memories for us as a family and we would really like the right person to rent the house out to.

The house is complete with all utilities and the kitchen is fully equipped.There is alsoa washer and a dryer to take care of your laundry needs.The rent goes for $700 monthly and it includes all utilities.At the moment I am in Africa lecturing in a five week theology seminar on demonology and the teaching of Jesus christ in faith haeling,an intresting topic I must say and I would love to share it with you if you might be intrested.

I started building a fire palce for the master bedroom before we left,if you are someworth of a handy person it would give me great pleasure if you could complete.

The house is located on 312 42 St Calgary (Southeast)Alberta T2A 3C3 you can go and view it and get back to me if you find it suitable so i can send you an application form for the house you can call me on +2347083206069 if there are any details you would like to clarify

God Bless you and hope to hear from you soon,

Rev Jonathan William

*****************************************************

thank you for getting back to me so fast.
I would love to see the house, we will go there this week to look at it and the surrounding area; we don’t know much about it. Then I will give you a call to discuss more details.
I assume your family is in Estonia, and you are traveling the world in your mission, but for how long the house will be available for us to rent it? You know once you get settled and having young kids is not easy to move around. We would like a place to stay for a while if possible. I looked up the address and it seems like is a townhouse, so all the utilities are included in the condo fee? I assume you probably have somebody looking after your house while you are away, if this is the case, could we see it inside also?
I am sure I will have some other questions, but for now, I am just so greatful you contacted me.
thank you
#####

******************************************************************

Thank you for your mail,

Please get back to me as soon as you have gone to see the house.The dialing code would be +234 just as I have given you in the e-mail i sent you.We are kind of hoping for a long term lease as we would not like to go through this process anytime in the near future.Yea all utilities are included in the rent of $700.We do not have anybody looking after the house on our behalf.We tried getting an agent for the houise before we left but all the agents we spoke to wanted to charge renters exorbitantly for the rent more than what we thought was fair before God and before man for the house hence the reason why we are doing this ourselves and I must confess it is pretty hard work.

Most of the people we know do the same kind of work that we do[missionary]and they move from place to place like we do some we are kind of limited in our choices.if you go to view the surronding area and you like it I gues I can be able to send you pictures of the interior of the house so you have an idea of the interior,

God Bless you and hope to hear from you soon,

Rev Jonathan William

*************************************************************

we did go see the house last night, and we liked it. I was wonder if we could see it inside actually , before to sign a contract.
I called few times yesterday , but I didn’t get an answer, so I wasn’t sure if I am dialing correctly or was a wrong time to call (there is a 011 before the 234 country code, I looked it up on the internet). When is it a good time to call you? We’d like to give you a call in the weekend (acording to the internet again, it seems to be 6 hours difference, so if you would like us to call you at 9 pm for instance, we’ll have to make the call at 3 from here).
Please send us some pictures and let us know when is a good time to call you.
Thank you

**********************************************************

Thank you for your mail,

I am glad that you like our home.As i explained to you earlier we did try to get an agent that could take care of things for us but they wanted to charge exorbitantly more than what we thought was fair before God and before man for the house hence the reason why we are doing this ourselves.Please find attached to this mail pictures of the interior of the house I hope you can get a view of what the house looks like from this.

God Bless you and hope to hear from you soon,if you would like to proceed with renting.You can call me basically any time as i slep very lightly but i might sound grunchy though.you can dial the number like this as I believe this is the correct way of doing it at least that was what I was told +2347083206069 .

The apartment scam. Now, posting as Mr. Clement Wilson.

It has been a hard time trying to get a nice,honest and resposible person for the lovely apartment. It was formally occupied by my little brother before he left for his present location for his final project with Globalcom NIG which will last him 3 years before he will return. He left his pet parrot and some other things I had to get new homes fore and now I still have to get a nice person/family for the apartment.

All documents and keys are with him and he is ready to bargain on the price if he is ok with you taking the apartment over. The apartment has an up dated living room,a fully quipped kitchen a toilet and a bedroom. The Hydro, washer and security is in tact and will be ok for any modern living environment and well furnished.

$650 is the rent fee per month and if you feel this is ok by you reply back so that I know what should be done next. He can send you the keys and document at any time via DHL for faster delivery to you so you can go and have a look at the apartment.

Thank You

I was looking on a website and found an ad for 2 puppy american bulldogs for free. When I emailed the people, they told me they had relocated to Barcelona Spain and that they would have to ship the puppies to me along with the change of ownership papers, when I asked how much they said they would pay shipping cost but I would pay $98 per puppy for the ownership papers. I asked them what proof I would have that those emails weren’t a scam and I would get the puppies and they stopped emailing me. Then I found this post. Amazing! People these days.. really. Thanks guys for saving me $200!!

This person went by Dr. Morgan, not Rev. But “she” was definitely all about the God thing. “GOD BLESS YOU!” after every email and “she” said they were doing missionary work in Barcelona.

Beware…

I knew something wasn’t right, but I played along until I got the Western Union payment info. Sure enough, the name to pay to was Jim Buckner. I would love to run into this guy. Preying on dog lovers really pissses me off. What a scumbag.

Someone should hang this guy by his “you-know-what”!!! I was looking for a rental in the San Francisco Bay Area for a very dear friend moving back from Colorado Springs, CO, who desperately needs a place by Nov 1(after his demonic ex-wife took him for everything!). I came upon a craigslist add for a 3bdrm house at an unbelievable price. I emailed the craigslist no. & rec’d a reply from Quint Bowles listing the great amenities & attaching beautiful photos. It seemed too good to be true (which it was!). I Google-mapped the house & it was in a nice area I’m familiar w/, but the photos somehow did not match the house (of course they were indoor photos of model home). I replied to Quint asking for his phone no. so we could talk, which he gave. I was going to ask if he had an agent in town so I can look at the house when I decided to reverse look-up the phone no. When nothing turned up, I ‘googled’ it & was brought to your website. Thank you so much!!! I’m just so PO’d that these low-lifes can do this. I’m just sad for my friend as I have to start looking again for him. May that guy, “Quint”, rot in hell!! I feel bad for the people that do fall for his (& others’) scams!

My sisters found on add, and replied to it. 2 days laters they got an email. I was very suspious about it from the begining. These puppies are suppose to be in Nigeria. The ironic thing is I am dating a man from Nigeria, and is currently out there when this happened. I wanted him to go see if the lady was really there and if he could be bring them back is they existed. My sisters became impatient, and sent the money without my knowledge. I also had my sister forward me the email, looked up the shipping company, this was also the email requesting more money because the dogs, were supposely stuck in London.The next morning I spoke to my boyfriend and he imdeiately told me it was a scam. If they would have been patient and waited for me to speak to my boyfriend. I could have saved them $500.

The scammers are in Boston, MA as well. They are using the name “Rev. Nicolas Morgan” and little brother “Danny Morgan” and they’re claiming that the “beautiful $700/month, 1bedroom apt” is at “81 park drive”

I received the exact same apartment emails as some of the other postings. Man, I was so desperate for a nice apartment that I almost fell for it until my boyfriend knocked some sense into me. I am so mad.

I’m really nervous now about my privacy (email acct and stuff). Did anyone have any experience with hacking after talking to these guys?

BE CAREFUL

Original URL:http://toronto.craigslist.ca/tor/apa/1004149389.html

Then I replied on behalf of my sister and the email reply back was:

It has been a hard time trying to get a nice,honest and resposible person for the lovely apartment. It was formally occupied by my little brother (Chris Jack) before he left for his present location for his final project with Globalcom NIG which will last him 3 years before he will return. He left his pet parrot and some other things I had to get new homes fore and now I still have to get a nice person/family for the apartment.

All documents and keys are with him and he is ready to bargain on the price if he is ok with you taking the apartment over. The apartment has an up dated living room,a fully quipped kitchen a toilet and a bedroom. The Hydro, washer and security is in tact and will be ok for any modern living environment and well furnished. Here is the address (150 Roehampton Avenue Toronto Ontario M4P 1R2 Canada)

$450 is the rent fee per month and if you feel this is ok by you reply back so that I know what should be done next. He can send you the keys and document at any time via DHL for faster delivery to you so you can go and have a look at the apartment.

Thank You

Mr.Alx Jack

$450 rent for a place in which charges between 1200-2000, unbelieveable!
Thnaks to everyones comments I was able to find out about this scam!
Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all of you for posting about Rev. James Buckner. I was very wary from the start, then used Google to view the street address in Paris which he claimed was where his apartment was. It was a business district (which could have, and probably does have, apartments above the stores), but the neighborhood just didn’t match the photos they sent. Dicey neighborhood and then this immaculate/cosmopolitan apartment – wait I think I did see those photos in Cosmo:) Anyway, I answered the ad and received tons of b*lls**t emails from his “wife” who is in “New Jersey”, (while he is on a Christian Mission in West Africa) but can’t be reached by phone because she has problems with her telephone>:-o Wanted me to send two months’ rent (promising the third month free) and after they had received the money they would “DHL” the keys to me here in the states because they had no one they could leave them with in Paris. Hmmmm. Thank goodness for sites like this one and for Google. In my desperation to find an apartment in Paris I just might have fallen for this crap. TO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE – BEWARE OF THIS CHARACTER AND OTHER FRAUDS LIKE HIM!!!!!!

They are now targetting parrots as well. Being aware of these scams I try to engage them in long meaningless email exchanges. But they made a blinding mistake on the parrot scam. The said it weighs 3lbs. Ever seen a 3 lb oven ready chicken? Damned site bigger than an African Grey. Anyway they sent a shipping notice using frames lifted from a genuine pet transport companies site.

Halfway down it changed from parrot to puppy. So I have emailed the idiot back telling him he is being scammed by the transport company he set up! He said they made a genuine mistake· I have informed him that no transport company ships a puppy as an animal, it would say dog! I love winding these people up!

The good reverend is back!!! My GF just got a response from him about an apartment in Paris posted on Craigslist and on FUSAC. As soon as we got the response it screamed “I’m another damn Nigerian scam artist!” so we did a search and voila. Thanks for this site and for confirming the nearly obvious. Apologies to all who have fallen prey to this man. On another note, I may be in West Africa this summer and I’ll see if I can track down the the honorable, kind, and good Mr. Buckner/Lowen/full of shit. We reported him to the FTC but you never know if that goes anywhere.

Hi, I have received 4 different emails saying they have puppies for me. Two from Africa, the other unknown and the other one from Michigan.

Since I made the mistake of giving my phone number when I was answering to the puppies add, the text me and sent me the email after offering Yorkshire teacup puppies and the other emails (from different names) where about maltese puppies. The Africans where asking for $100 for shipping (only that? like if where possible to ship a dog in that price) and the person from Michigan was asking for $155 for the papers.

Anyway, this is sad.

We have almost been caught with a similar dog one in UK, THANK YOU all who posted here, this guy is a FELIX ROUND, claiming a legitimate address in the Isle of Man [half-way between UK mainland and Ireland], very similar advert to the first listed at the top, for SNOW WHIT MALTESE puppies, found my daughter in her quest for a new pet. Even the following emails are very close, so they are not just operating in USA. I actually rang the guy first, mobile number, and spoke with a man with a thick African accent, probably Nigerian, as I have Nigerian friends, which immediately alerted me. Anyway, long story short, I continued with the idea, to see his reactions, we were going to take the last two, and I was going to pick them up, and even checked the price of the Ferry across to the IoM, which was well over £300. He insisted that if we couldn’t collect, we must pay the shipping before delivery, at £180 per dog. Needless to say, after consoling my daughter for over an hour, we are now looking for something closer to home, that we can go and see BEFORE we proceed, and I hope these HEARTLESS B**TARDS ROT IN HELL!

Here’s the first email:

I just got scammed myself. The person called herself Mrs. Ashly Comouxe in Ohio. I found her on wellbredpets.com which I’ve been told might be in on the scan. I sent her $350.00 AFTER I was emailed by the pet transportation company, which I had looked up online and looked legit to me. And hour later I got another email from the agency saying the puppy was being held in Ohio because its life insurance had expired and I would have to send another 500.00 to have him shipped or I would face criminal charges for animal violation! Ofcourse I refused to send another cent, emailed the owner a few times, and then contacted the local police and a lawyer. NOthing can be done,t hey say. Nigerian puppy scam, they say. Now I am out $400.00 Canadian, and I don’thave the puppy that my five year old and I so badly wanted. The pet agency is called Royal Paws Pet City. I wired the money to a Tony NIckman in Damden, New Jersey. I feel like an idiot for buying into this. The woman swore to me, swore to god that she was legit. Wish I wouldhave found this site sooner.

haha…i did a similar thing…just wished i had saved the emails…mine was a maltese scam…but previously i had an online dating scam! he said he had been kidnapped was being ransomed for money (that i needed to wire the kidnappers) or they would kill him. I wrote back: Oh! My darling! I am so sorry! My heart is breaking! etc. I will miss you so! He said WHAT? I said, well, you said they are going to kill you. He said, “but you can stop it by sending money.” “I said, I never pay on the first date”

I just came in contact with 2 people doing the same thing!! One was gonna charge me 140 to ship the puppy, & another was gonna charge me 180. They said they were in Turkey. Something just didn’t seem right, even though they didn’t ask me for credit card info yet. I just stopped responding.
