This one found me though dogwalker.com:

Thanks for your mail. My name is Gary Hoffman and i was bless with a
family of four with my lovely wife, my two daughters
and myself.I'll need your services as a dog walker for my dog. I have
an American Bulldog called Rocky. He is a big male dog,
very friendly, active, Intelligent and he listen alot. Sometimes he
might be very playful and he might makes you run
sometimes when you hold him if he decide to run because he is very big
so you will have no choice to run with him Lol. but
once you control him, he will listen to you. We are presently on a
vacation with my wife and my two daughters in
Cuba and we will be back on 6th of next month. We formerly live in
Mobile, AL. and we are relocating to your city area
but our estate manager just got house for us in your city area while
we are on vacation and i haven't be able to get full
address details from the estate manager because he has been sick and
been in the hospital but I'll get the full address next
week when he is out of the hospital and I'll let you know. I'll be
needing your service on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 3hrs in a day
to take out my dog on walk and spend time with him. I'll be paying you
$500 in a week. If you think my hours is
not okay for you, let me know your hours of availability. My Dog
couldn't travel with us on vacation because Dogs
are not allowed its makes me really worried and sad but i decided to
keep him with my friend till we back to the states. I
need to know answer to the following questions below:


1. Do you have any experience with Dogs before?

2. How many years experience?

3. Are you a Dogs lover that treats them like human being?

4. How old are you?

5. Do you have Dogs?


I'll be sending you an upfront payment to keep your service till when
we get back to the states since. My client will issue a
check of $3,561.99 and you will deduct your payment of $500 and you
will send the remaining money to my agent via western
union and my agent will be needing the money to clear my shipments
coming from china. I'll need the following to have the

client mail you the check.

1.Full Name:
2.Address (No P.O.Box Pls):
3.City:
4.State:
5.Zip Code:
6.Cell Number:

Whoa...that is SO obvious, it's like he took a Scammers 101 class and copied that from his textbook!

I don't think he's going to make it in the scamming industry.

Well he elicited a response from me by going through dogwalker.com, it seemed legit so I responded asking where he lived. This is what I got back. So annoying :roll:
