Attached is an e-mail I received to buy one of my pups, please beware as this individual is a scam artist, he didn't get me and I hope he doesn't get any of you. I did reply to him with some choice words not found in the dictionary.

similar scam

This is almost identical to a scam that some folks were doing on ebay but it was vehicles. Only difference was the number of mispellings was a lot less. They almost got a friend of mine when he was selling his 1971 Bronco. Luckily he did not fall for it either.

So I guess these days we need the latin translation for "seller beware"

Not only do i get that a lot i get the same crap on the phone,but the buyer is supposed to be deaf and communicating thru a special operator so you can not trace the number back.
Also FYI incase no one knows,money orders,bank checks,certified checks can all be either forged or have a stop payment put on them. So make sure any instrument you use other than cash by allowwed enough time to clear and get a driverslicense on any local checks. In 22 yrs i have been beat to the tune of 400 bucks.Been very lucky so far,and that slob will have a suprise this spring when i go to where he is and either get the money or the dog.
It took me a year but i finally found him.
