Funny - not pet sitting related

by Forum Member » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:49 am

I just found this one entertaining. I listed a horse for sale late last night, and here is one of the responses (knew right away it was a scam, based on the keywords "present condition" and "last asking/saking price" and thought it would be fun to see how big of a fake check I could get)


>Fancy Hailey (1703076)

>Good Morning I came across your horse for sale, I think it will be a
>perfect horse for me and my family, what is the present condition of
>the horse and how much is the last saking price you want to sell.
>Thanks

My answer:
>Perfect and $2500

His answer:
Thanks for the responds. Am willing to buy for my family and for a Trail ride. The horse will live with us in the house. Would be well taken care of and not treat just like an animal but apart of the family.

I never respond to scam e-mails since I don't want them to know they hit on a viable e-mail address but.....
It would be funny to keep something like this going. Maybe tell them that the horse only likes a certain decor, modern contemporary perhaps, so they should let you know how they decorate their home. He will be living INSIDE after all!
He prefers classical music to rock, loves watching the sci-fi channel and is an early riser. Expects breakfast on the table by 8am, enjoys his private time late mornings but would be happy to mingle with the family between the hours of 2-4pm.
He loves to socialize and frequently invites friends over for cocktails.

Oh, I just cannot stop laughing!!!!! I am just picturing a horse sitting around watching someone paint a room holding a cocktail in one hand and the remote in the other! Too funny!
