I was NEARLY trapped one of these scammer's...
I would like to report my case JUST IN CASE other innocent guys won't be deceived by these piece of ****.
They introduced them named "Subi" and after I sent information request, the guy who says I am a husband of puppie's owner sent me following mail with cute puppie's photos.
It is nice reading from you about your interest in adopting my yorkie
puppies. (Jane and Max) Well, the puppies are still available. I have
attached their pics. Actually, the two puppies belong to my wife and
she has traveled with them to Germany to start a new job. She is a
medical doctor and she called me a while ago and told me that, she
is unable to take care of the dogs because she works for longs hours
during the day. Unfortunately, she can't send them to me because, I go
to work at 8am and only come back after 9pm and so, it would be risky
leaving these puppies on themselves at home between this time. So, my
wife and I have decided to give the puppies for adoption to anyone who
would be able to provide them with the care and attention they need.
She would be sending them through an airline who would furnish you
with the flight information and the tracking number. All you would
need to pay is the flight of the puppies directly to the airlines. She
can send the puppies as soon as you are ready to get them. you can get
in touch with her at firstname.lastname@example.org
My number is 916-756-4004
we are looking forward to reading from you.
I knelt to pray, but not for long, I had too much to do.
Must hurry off and get to work, for bills would soon be due.
And so I said a hurried prayer, jumped up from off my knees.
My Christian duty now was done, My soul could be at ease.
All through the day I had no time to speak a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends; They'd laugh at me I feared.
No time, no time, too much to do, that was my constant cry.
No time to give to those in need.
At last 'twas time to die.
And when before the lord I came I stood with downcast eyes.
Within His hands He held a book, It was the "Book of Life"
God Looked into His book and said
" Your name I cannot find. I once was going to write it down but never found the time"
After several times of correspondence,,,he sent me following mail.
the puppies are 22 weeks 3 days old. i have been at
the airport this morning and i was told that it would
cost $350.00 to send both puppies to Dayton and i
would needing your name to sign the adoption papers,
your address, name of airport closest to you and phone
number to register the puppies for the flight. I have
an off-day at work tomorrow and so i will have enough
time to do the flight arrangement tomorrow morning. I
would be sending the dogs along with their health, vet
and AKC papers and you would be paying for the flight
directly to the airlines. I look forward to reading
and after this, his wife started to send me following mail.
thanks for the email. i am only getting it now, i have had a very busy day. i would be sending them first thing tomorrow before going to work. i will be sending them along with their vet, health, AKC and adoption papers. Please do let me know when you pick up the puppies from the airport.
hope to get in touch with you tomorrow.
thanks once more for the help.

She repeatedly mentioned me that she will take day off tomnorrow and send puppies by air cargo.
Then air cargo company sent me e-mail like this.

You see now.These guys are really goofy.
You can see MANY wrong trap on this mail but you should find it by yourself.
(I don't want to give these scammers any hint how I noticed.)
However, I would like to say some tips here to reduce the possible victims in the future.
1-If they are REAL SOUND company (breeders/transporters,.etc).They should accept credit card.
2-NEVER EVER send money grams or check as long as you don't know who they are as a real person.
3-Quality air cargo usually NEVER accept transporting live animals w/o the attendance of owner on the same flight.
4-ALWAYS check their address on the google map.
5-"IF" they don't open up further info about themselves, just quit correspondence.
6-REPORT what happened FBI, not local police(FBI has state by state local FBI office and forward your call for fraud division in Washington D.C.).
7-Any money gram transfer etc,. can be canceled instantly and 100% of money you spent (include transfer charge) will be refund as long as they are not grabbing your money.
8-Check their phone number or mail address suffix. It may come up on the list of fraud warning.
9-Try pick up RELIABLE breeders. Nothing may be more expensive than FREE OFFER.
10-May god punish these pathetic piece of **** in the near future.
Lastly, even after I noticed these scam, they continuously sent me this mail. I was just giggling lol
i sent them today and i have received a call from the airlines that they will not be leaving in the flight that i reserved for them rather, they will leave late tonight and you will be picking them from the airport tomorrow morning. i am going back to work from break. if there's anything you may want to ask me, i will only be available to read your emails after 4 hours from now.
and this one.
I HAVE JUST DONE THE FLIGHT ARRANGEMENT, I THINK THE AIRPORT WILL BE GETTING IN TOUCH WITH YOU SHORTLY. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU PICK THEM UP FROM THE AIRPORT. I AM GOING TO WORK AND WOULD BE EXPECTING YOUR EMAIL
THANKS FOR THE HELP.
One more tip.
They ALWAYS ask you URGENT money.
Guys calm down, let them spend their life in prison.
FBI is watching them.
I hope you won't be trapped by these cheap tricks.
