Went for a search for teacup kittens online, can't remember exactly where i found the ad but had the description of 2 kittens needing a good home for $260, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Sent email asking more details and was emailed back quickly:
Thanks for the mail and the interest you have for my kittens. They are still available and ready to go to any lovely and caring home. They are secure self-confident kittens that respond enthusiastically to each new experience. They are Spectacular pure breed AKC registered with all shots, vaccines and vet records updated. I resided for a seminar to Cameroon and will have to arrange for a home delivery of few hours. The kittens have had their dew claws removed. They have been wormed and have their first shots.
I was located in California but relocated outside the country to Cameroon for an Emigration Seminar, since I lost my elder sister and son in a car accident I took my babies with me to keep me warmth, but I have noticed that the weather condition and food here is not the best for them. I am looking for reasonable, knowledgeable and cautious person who can offer them tenderness, nursery with lots of love kisses and hugs. They are up for adoption. These adorable, cute and lovely kittens are 10 to 12 weeks old and I promise they would be the perfect match for you and your family. They will be the best playmates you've ever dream of. With their great personality and good temperaments with kids and other pets, they would be the one to steal your soul.they would be coming along with their vet records, and all their AKC registration papers attached to their package with lots of play toys. You have nothing to worry about Feeding, because I will also enclose their hand book and feeding menu to their package ok.
However, all you have to do is to promise me that you would shower them with lots of TLC .And I would never like that my babies should end up in a shelter or rescue, So if you are willing to take these kittens home then just e-mail me ASAP so that I would stop all other contacts .If you have any more question to ask I will answer you truthfully and faithfully. I would like to ask you some few questions if you don't mind.
1...Are you a breeder? 2...have you been keeping pets? 3...Do you have kids at home? 4...Are you going to keep he or give her to someone? 5....How soon will you want to take kitten? 6 .......Where are you located? 7....Do you need both or one? 8....Do you have any pets hospital around were you will always take them for check up? What is your contact phone number?
N/B I will ship him/her over to you Okay?

DUE TO THE HIGH RATE OF TRANSFER CHARGE ,IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO SAY THE MONEY IS BEING SENT TO A RELATIVE IF AND ONLY IF YOU ARE ASKED THE REASON FOR SENDING THE MONEY SO AS FOR ME NOT BE OVER CHARGE WHEN RECEIVING THE MONEY .
it all sounded fishy so i asked out right if was a scam, what i could do to be reassured it wasn't a fake, through some emails and a phone call, insurance on theft, etc. I was told he was legit but then was eager to know when i would send the money.
Still weary, i checked online about scams involving rare kittens and what to watch out for; was informed that usually a too good to be true low deal for generally higher priced kittens, they would most likely be international to places like Cameroon, speak little to no english and ask for a westren union transaction for payment. Basically, everything that I had just gone through.
So I did not go through with it. Later got another email asking where i was and I just responded I didn't feel comfortable with the transaction. Quiet since.
Just want to stop this guy from scamming a trusting natured person like me.
