|Cross-stitch my mama made for me|
Fast forward to today. I received an email from someone scouring the pet purchasing site. He stated that his name was Jack and he was interested in purchasing "it". He also said that he was too busy to deal with me in person but would mail me a money order, with an extra $80 for my running around and he would have a mover show up to take care of shipping "it". Just wire him the monies via Western Union and all would be well.
All was not well - that was a scam. Plain and simple. It is a sad state of affairs when someone, in an economy such as this, will hunt on those who are emotionally vulnerable. I love my dog - he just frustrates the snot out of me at times. Last week was a breaking point... but to attempt to take advantage of me - or anyone else - is just pathetic. So please, if anyone ever gets anything in an email where the sender states using a money order - report it. I speak from experience, as this happened to me years ago in my youthful ignorance and it left me almost $1000 in debt to the bank and nowhere to go. The bad people were not in our country and even though I did all I could, nothing was ever rectified.
Ramsay, and my money, are staying right where they belong - home with me.
