How do these people find me?

I got the following email last night.  Anybody want a puppy?

Subject: Little Yorkie for adoption

Hello,

How are you today? I hope this e-mail reaches you in a good mood. My name is Jacqueline Jones and I am a consultant gynecologist surgeon and oncologist doctor, I work for different prominent hospitals, my husband and I are giving out this little puppy for free adoption. This little girl weighs 1.3Lbs at 9 weeks old & should be 3Lbs when full grown only. She is very friendly with children she fits in both palms of your hands. She is an AKC/CERF registered puppy, adorable and and sociable with a great personality and very good bloodlines.


She is vet-checked, up to date on shots and deforming, and her health is guaranteed. She was recently checked by a licensed Vet Doctor for heart, knees, skin, correct bite, and eyes problems and there is no sign of any problem. Bottom and straight sides are tender and shots are given up to date.

She will come along with a travel crate, AKC/CERF Registered Papers, Toys and Food with her birth certificate, I used to reside in California with my husband but after my son's death. My husband and I moved to Africa due to our work and we have the puppy right here with us. You have to promise me that you will take good care of her as she will be a new family member. Please, if you are not going to take good care of the puppy, do not reply this e-mail.

If you are going to take good care of her, kindly reply for more details about her. I await your urgent Response.

Thanks & God Bless,
Jacqueline Jones
 
Sounds fabulous, but how do these people find me?

Seriously? How bizarre! She's not asking for any money, so it's not like she's scamming you...but it still doesn't seem legit! Weird.

Sounds like a scam!
Besides, if it's not, how much will it cost to get a dog from Aftica to the U.S.!!! Quarantines and all.
This must be a twist on the "my husband is being held hostage" emails or something.

Why would anyone in their right mind want to give a yorkie to someone with 3 kids and a bulldog? My uncles horrible ex wife got a yorkie and my cousin jumped off of the bed and crushed the dog. My mom said it was karma for my ex-aunt liking the dog more than her kids.

Definitely a scam.

Definitely a scam... sure the puppy is free ... but you'll probably be asked to send $$$ for puppy's travel to USA from Africa.

I think these people just use some program to fish (I think that is what its called) the internet for email addresses ... yours happened to be picked up....

I wonder what ther response would be if you emailed you were considering it .. and how would they get the puppy to you since they are in AFRICA...
HHL

P.S. Dolce will be making his way to the post office in town this week.. xo Hope BG is feeling better... and was able to get out for some T or Ting..

I agree that it's probably a scam.

I once had an email from a 13 year old girl. Her mother had died and she wanted advice about her monthly visitor. Bizarre!

Babes Mami said...

These people find me too! I give them props for slight creativity but who (other then that chick on teen mom) falls for this stuff??

Mo 'Betta said...

That's better than some of the nut job emails I've been getting, such as. "You sound nice person. I think we make nice life together". WTF? I so don't have time for a foreign stalker. Or any stalker for that matter. Glad your baby girl is better!

Lourie said...

Sandra said...
