So, I wrote this woman about a parrot she is selling.... I am almost positive this is a scam... I am not going to risk it, that's for sure! Here is the reply I got back, and NO I didn't give her ANY information!!
Hiii My dear
Thanks for the mail and interest in the bird. I am sorry for the late response,we were busy trying to get some stuffs for our home. First of all here are a few pics of them hope you like like. We love her so much but its unfortunate that we cant even give her the love and affection we have in our hearts for her.. We are on a volunteer mission to Cameroon together with the UN malaria committee ,in regards to the disease in pregnant women and children. We traveled up here together with them. They wont allow her into the country for reason being that, pets are not allowed into the country from other countries i have to find for her a home back in the States for her where she will be showered with all that love and affection. Hope you wont mind if i ask you a few questions:
Do you have kids?
Do you have any experience with parrots?
Are you adopting them as pet or for breeding purposes?
Will you send us pictures and updates about them from time to time?
I am just being concerned about the type of home she will be going to, so that is why i am curious to know. We love her so much and we want to make sure she goes to a family that will show them the affection she deserves. i will tell you her habits.she is home and potty trained, crate trained aswell.She feeds on wet food for now,she likes when you give her all the attention and thats why i take her out sometimes.she is ok and goes along with kids and other home pets. she sleeps in her crate indoor and she also enjoys daily walks around the hood. she is health guaranteed, registered and will come along with all her papers,diapers,play toys, crate and food menu she is very playful and goes along with kids and other home pets.she loves to be held and cuddled and sometimes wants all the attention for herself. We are her first true family and i will want a perfect new family for her that will adopt for re_shipping cost only that will cost $220.. But i am sorry i first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements.Waiting to read from you soon.Greetings.
I do not consider anyone who asks that many questions NOT a scammer unless you are face to face with a breeder in the states which is a different topic all together. Also watch out for "MY DEAR" I have delt with a lot of those all scams.
this is a scam..! my parents had an African Grey for years and they never took it out for a walk around the "hood" ? and another thing..parrots don't wear diapers ! come on..and it's crate trained ?potty trained ? birds go when they want to..omg !
I replied to one of those when we first got here... the ole yorkie puppy scam. That darn person added me to every single scam email she could find! I'm still getting emails! OH! And she PM-d my yahoo messenger too! Then called me the devil. lmao! ugg!!
I just don't see the joy people can get out of doing this kind of thing! It makes absolutely no sense to me and REALLY makes my blood boil! Grr... stupid people with no life, trying to ruin other peoples!
The joy they get out of it is uninformed people who really are convinced that they are going to get a dog (bird w/e) and pay thousands of dollars and nothing arrives. The sad thing is people do it all the time.
irst true family and i will want a perfect new family for her that will adopt for re_shipping cost only that will cost $220.. But i am sorry i first of all need to know the answers to my questions before i will know if we can proceed with the re-shipping arrangements.Waiting to read from you soon.Greetings.
