I got it as well and the large text was really easy to read! :D
You would think they would at least come up with something that makes a tiny bit of sense. I mean seriously....8 teacup Yorkie's and 5 Golden's? No way would anyone have that combination in one house. Just wouldn't happen.

If you receive any of these scams it is always helpful to post the email address they come from.

I actually get quite a few non-members writing to us that they looked up the email address on a suspicious email, and our website popped up. Often times it isn't even for a pet sitting scam. It seems many of these scammers use the same email address for all different kinds of scams at the same time.

I would, however, remove your own email address from the post if you do post the headers. This spam forum is open to the public. They can't see any of your personal information (because if you aren't logged it everything says "anonymous") unless you actually type it in the message.

This one is interesting to me though. He plans to pay with credit card. I may just take him up on that one so I can report to the CC company for whomever's card he stole.
