Just Got this Today

by Forum Member » Tue Jun 08, 2010 12:19 pm

I received an email from "Dr. Mike" who needed a petsitter. I've copied and pasted the emails below. I called Bank of America today to find out whether or not the $1710.00 check I received was legit. NO, it was not. So, if you get as far as I do in this stupid thing, at least confirm whether or not the check is good and save yourself the fees and having to pay back the money.

Call me on 7575167677 at your earliest convenience

I understand,I have already made orders for these items and i got great discount with Julie's store so proceed and have the funds accrued to the store sent to Julie at any western union outlet close to you.There are several western union one could even be at next block to your building.
Am a very busy man thats why i ordered those items and i have spoken with Julie and she affirmed upon receipt of funds from you at western union she will get the package out for onward delivery.
Am sorry putting you through this,just try and help me out

what to carry out immediately,Proceed to your bank and have the check
deposited.As soon as the funds is available for you later
today,Proceed with the following:

1. Deduct $900 which covers upfront payment for your services of dog
walking while you send $810 to the store agent who would be supplying
you with the dogs items tomorrow via standard Overnight courier.

2.Proceed to a nearby western union outlet with the $810 for the store
manager and have it sent western union to the store with the below

As soon as you have the funds sent,Get back to me with the MTCN # as

I've received several scam emails; here's the latest

by Forum Member » Mon Jul 26, 2010 12:49 pm

This is "Simon's" response after I wrote and asked for his address and explained that I was already fulled booked and unavailable for the month of August. He obviously didn't read that part since he is still ordering me to walk his dogs on specific dates in Aug. Another red flag for me is that I would NEVER go to a hotel to pet sit; that's just not safe in my book. Thanks for posting these warning for all of us. Always follow your gut instincts. Stay smart. Stay safe.

Hello Cathy,
I got your mail and it really sounds great. Thanks for your response.
Am really glad to know your interest and am sure you will be fine with
my pet. There names are Anne and Petit, friendly and a lover of toys.
Am presently working on a contract in Hughston Hospital of Columbus,
Georgia. I hope you understand that am not residing in your state. Am
coming there for a contract in August, You will start having my pet from
10th of August to 31th of August on Mondays – Fridays Daily, for a dog walk
service. I will prefer a twice a day walk for my Dogs daily, if that
will be ok with you. I will have to lodge in an Hotel very close to you.

Please can you get back to me with your charges in your next email?
Please understand that am not concern about the charges but the care
you will give to my Pets. I just want to be sure you will take absolute
care of them.

I look forward to your urgent reply.

Best Regards,
Simon.
