Default DO you think this is a scam?

I have been looking for a yoprkie for a little over a year, and I have not found any breeder who seems reputable or trustworthy. I recently started looking on petsads.com and I emailed abou 10 people about pets they were selling. Each response yeilded the same type of response. Each said that they were Missionaries in either Nigeria, London or Cameroon and they no longer had the time to care for the pet. I mean every single person gave me the same response. They were very enticing because they were only charging the adoption fee plust the airline. I personally think this is a scam. Has anyone else come across this type of seller? Let me know if i'm wrong.

Yup sounds like a scam to me. Probably one person doing multiple ads.

I got the same type of thing when looking for a jeep. I would respond to the ad, and the reply would say they were moving overseas and could not take the car and so on. Definitely scams to get your money.

You'll find some very reputable breeders right here on this site. You can even ask others on the forum for references. Good luck! Hope you find your puppy.

May I ask why you brought a lot of dogs to Africa if you can't have them? Oh, and I got an email from LiveDeal saying your ad got removed. Why is that?

Subject: about yorkie


Hello,
Thanks for the mail.It is good that you are interesting in buying yokie,actually I am from the States, but right now I am in West Africa(NIGERIA) on a company course and unfortunately i dont know when the course will end in which is the more reason why I want
to sell yorkie.because of the arsh weather condition here. That is why i am looking for a nice family to buy yorkie and take a very good care of the dog.

THE YORKIE DETAILS:
Height: 6-7 inches (15-17½cm.)
Weight: 7 pounds (3.2kg.)
Living Conditions
The Yorkie is a good dog for apartment life. They are very active indoors and will do okay without a yard. The Yorkie is sensitive to the cold and prefers warm climates.
NAME:SNOPEE.
AGE IS:3MONTHS
Health:Abnormal skull formations in Yorkies measuring less then 8 inches (20cm). Bitches often have trouble delivering. The very tiny "teacup" Yorkies often have serious health and behavioral problems. Be sure to feed Yorkies dry food (canned food can be added) to help keep their teeth clean and strong. They should get their teeth cleaned at the Vet to keep them from falling out and creating infection.
gender:WE HAVE BOTH MALE AND FEMALE AND WE WILL LIKE TO KNOW THE ONE YOU NEEDED


temperment. The breed is demanding and dependant and needs a lot of human attention. The Yorkie is an excellent watchdog, defending its territory in no uncertain manner. They can get snappish if surprised, frightened or over-teased, but are usually very sweet and loving. They can be difficult to housebreak. These little dogs should not be over-protected, for they may become neurotic. The Yorkie likes to bark, but it can easily be taught not to do so.


So I hope that you will take very good care of yorkie and thats what matters to me.yorkie is very trained,obedience and even your kid's and your new family will like yorkie .and for the shipping it will by NextDay Flight delivery.So I will need your
Fullname,Phone Number, address and the Nearest Airport
so that I can determine and tell you the shipping cost.I await a
reply from you asap,
you can also contact me at this number
+2348028142394
Regards and personal thanks.
cindy.
