GOING TO THE DOGS

updated august 23 2007

A heart scam-o-welcome to Joseph Somerville, in a tale of reverse puppy scamming.
Usually this works the other way round -- a Lad offers to buy your dog, horse, car, whatever.
The web site below is one of many which describe that version of the '419' advance fee fraud scam:

http://www.lindqvist.com/iscams/index.php?ID=333

Something similar was covered on Scamorama: 419 DALMATIONS - DOG BREEDER SCAM
And of course the JOB SCAM is just another variant of this.

Here, however, a Lad puts imaginary puppies up for adoption!
Oh, the sweet imaginary things!

Hi Steve,

Billy looks perfect. He is just what I am looking for. The nearest airport to me is LaGuardia Airport. I don't think this airport would count because it is for Internal flights (from the US to the US) only. The second nearest would be JFK. This I think would be much more suitable. I work for an English company so if necessary I have contacts in the UK who might be able to help. Here are my details you have requested.

Name: Joseph Somerville
Address: 222 W 77th St - New York, NY, United States 10024
Airport: JFK.

Please get back to me as soon as possible.

Regards,
J.Somerville

Hello,

Joseph Somerville
Hi Steve,

I don't think BA have received my payment the money is still in my Bank Account. I need to pay it again I think. Can you check with them on my behalf. I hate to think Billy is waiting in London still. He should be on his way by now. Please let me know what I need to do next.

P.S. Can you tell me more about Billy. What is his favourite food?. Does he need a lot of grooming? How often do you walk him? And anything else I may need to know?

Thank you so much for being so helpful and kind with only other people interests in your heart.

Hello joseph,
Billy is still fine and healthy,he is soft and goes around with kids.You would definately love him and i will like you to promise me that you would take good care of him.I went to the airline today and they told me to foward this message to you

Hello Steve,

I am very unhappy with British Airways Service. I have tried to make the payments but am having problems. Please help me make the payment. Do I phone Western Union or British Airways? I have the money waiting for you but seem unable to make the payment. Please advise me where you want me to pay the money

I really need to get Billy over to the US as soon as possible as I need to start his training regime for Crufts. It is a long task to train a Bull Dog to play the violin and need as much time as possible. I also need to know whether he will be suitable. If you are able to visit Billy I will need to know something as this will help me organize training in advance. I need you to lift up his tail and tell me what shade of blue his underlying excretion gland is. If it is a light blue colour then he will be perfect. If it is Dark Blue then sadly I shall not be able to teach him the violin, so will have to fall back on the Bass guitar.

Many thanks
Joseph.

P.S. Please get back to me as soon as possible as I want to get the payment to you for Billy.

[Crufts is an international dog show and competition]
