Well, Mr. Monkeybrains, you should have read the earlier post about how the new scam is to bilk people's money by pretending to sell them a dog, collecting the money, and then never delivering the dog. This old business of trying to get people to send you money is getting old. Try something new for a change. Get a real job.

I get this garbage in my inbox from time to time. It is amazing that this scam keeps going on and on. Who'd be stupid enough to fall for this kind of thing?

Apparently, some people do. It is unfortunate that it is now affecting pet owners.

I feel like Marty McFly in Back To The Future, except it isn't the Libyans selling plutonium to Doc, it is the Nigerians (or whomever) selling crap to the general public.
