“There’s a little doggy in our airport who has no owner. If no-one claims him in the next three days, he will be put down. All it takes is a few dollars to pay the shipping and he can be in New York by next Tuesday”
So goes the scam which straight away can have you sending two or three hundred dollars by Western Union (the scammers best friend) to a name in Cameroon.
Feed bills, Customs charges, Insurance, Vaccinations, Bribes, etc etc follow till you’re milked dry and the little chap (who doesn’t exist) still never turns up.
You’ve been scammed!!
