    Lucky you! Isn't it a great world we live in when you just get offered vast amounts of money by total strangers?!

    I have been sent email like that and I have sent back an email to them.
    I tell them to die and that they are low lifes but with way more colourful words though.
    We seem to get a few a month and I away put this reply back to them.
    But now they have stopped my return emails to them.
    This has to go as the people say. If it sound too good to be true.
    Well them it most likely is. SO never buy into it.
    Unless you want to have a mojor vent at them that is.
    Then they wonder whey we don't care for them.

    These sort of scams are really common.
    Until very recently I worked in IT security.
    No one not trying to scam you will ring or email you and ask for your credit card details.
    Lots of people get these attempted scam calls. I have a Silent Number and never gets these calls. Its worth the small fee involved.

    Agree CS

    Had a silent number for many years in my past occupation and it was a blessing...

    No scammers, no telemarketing, no work related whackos or solictiors...

    Only downside was when old friends of wife or my kids new friends wanted to ring...They had to jump through hoops to get our number from elsewhere...

    SCAMwatch home

    Worth having a browse through the govt scamwatch website occasionally. They are getting smart with the way they try to scam you, i can understand how people would have been sucked into the "windows errors" scam - i had already heard about the scam before they called me, but i can imagine if they called mum that she would quite possibly follow their instructions.

    Puppy scam...one of many variations.

    Pedigree pups at prices too good to be true

    SCAMwatch continues to receive reports of non-existent pedigree puppies being advertised at low prices in newspapers and classifieds websites. Ads often include cute photos and claims such as ‘raised in loving family’ as the scammer tries to melt your heart and cloud your judgement.

    Typically the seller claims they have had to move overseas and then tries to persuade the buyer to pay a fee for the dog to be transported to their home from either within Australia or overseas. When payment is subsequently made via money transfer, the puppy is never delivered.
    I do believe I've seen variations on this theme in here. Sigh.

    This is a totally new one to me.
    I know I wouldn't get caught by it as we only buy from people that we know we can see the pups in question.
    Blind faith only leaves to to a big hole in the back pocket.
    But it was interesting to read this about the pups.
    I know I will let others know about this.

    I've read quite a few stories about people buying puppies from interstate and overseas, and either not getting anything but a hole in their wallet. Or getting a sick mutant puppy that they could not do what they wanted with eg show the puppy.

    And the usual thing they did wrong - was use the puppy seller's website as their only reference for information.
