I was a potential victim of scam, but I caught on before it was too late. Supposedly I was going to be walking a German Shepherd for 3 weeks, the owner was coming to the States for business with his dog. Initially I was excited because this was going to be a big sale. He sent thousands of dollars more than what I was asking for. I took the money order to my bank, they called the credit union listed on the money order. That credit union confirmed it was a fake money order based on the # that was written on it. I didn't confront him immediately. I led him to believe that I was naive enough to fall for his scam. I told him no one would honor the money order and that he needed to send me another money order. He then got back to me, informing me that his German Shepherd was killed in a car accident, along with the vet who was helping the German Shepherd!! I could NOT believe it. He then went on to tell me about how his family was going to sue him for not taking good care of the dog. I continued to lead him on, telling him how sorry I was about the death of his dog. He then got back to me and GET THIS...asked me if I could help him with his investments by giving him my Bank Account info!!! I finally confronted him on it, he denied it and have sinced received 3 emails of the same style, overseas coming to the States with their dog. This all took place shortly after I started my business!! So everyone, BEWARE of these guys, they're very persistant with trying to rob you!
