Thread: Trained gun dog free to good home!!!!

  1. #1

    Trained gun dog free to good home!!!!

    Would you be tempted. Thing is it won't be local. It is a scam that will get round to postint the thread title. it was picked up on NESSR from the following.


    Hi, A lady in my office has been "given the opportunity" to rescue a Maltese puppy form Orkney.

    She has several emails from the dogs current owner who claims he has to move home and needs to rehome the dog quickly. The dog is free but she has to arrange shipping and he is insisting she uses a pet couriers called Blue Ice Pet Shippers.

    This all sounds very odd to me, has anyone heard of Blue Ice Pet Shippers as their website is registered in the Island state of Niue!

    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Thanks

    Paul

    The shipping co. will change but the scam will stay alive. Basically pay shipping up front and the dog never arrives. It is a known scam and the addresses does not exist as one person who turned up in Aberdeen to see the dog found out.
    Be careful,
    Jim

    ....are you suggesting that I shouldn't have given my bank account details to that poor Nigerian Prince in exile?!?

    What about the $5m he promised me.....?

    Am I missing something? Why is Blue Ice directly linked to Nigerians?

    Grow up. If you you need to use language like that you have clearly got some of inferiority complex.
