Subject: Can you board my pet in your home?

I will like you to board my Cat as from February 20th 2007 till April 20th 2008, and as for his health records my shipper will bring all necessary documents with him, when he brings Ryt to you. I will need you to let me have your price for this service so also I will need your full name and address plus phone number to make your payment to via a check as soon as possible.

Peter Rawlings.

Note the date, I thought they ment feb 2008 so I replied with a price for boarding the cat for 61 days at a cost of 335.50. In reply I received a return email:

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR EMAIL, I HAVE ASKED MY CLIENT TO MAKE OUT THE PAYMENT TO THE NAME AND ADDRESS THAT YOU GIVE ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THE PAYMENT WILL BE IN AMOUNT OF 2200 SO WHEN YOU GET THE PAYMENT YOU WILL SEND THE BALANCE MONEY ON IT TO THE SHIPPER THAT WILL BE COMING OVER TO DROP HIM AT YOUR PLACE,HE HAS NO SPECIAL DIET BUT HE FEEDS ON FRESH FOODS.

My shipper will bring all necessary Vaccination papers when he comes to drop him at your place.

Please let me know when you get the payment.

PETER RAWLINGS.

Hello I wasn't born yesterday. I sent a number of replies which he ignored just choosing to reply "its ok let me know when you get the cheque" (now copying the way I spelt cheque as opposed to the original 'check')

My last email I sent as follows:

Hi Mr Rawlings, did you receive my email requesting that you should pay your shipper direct?
It is preferable to us that you do as it can sometimes take weeks for a cheque to properly clear. Could you please send us the amount of 335.50 for boarding and pay the shipping fees of 1865.50 direct to your shipper otherwise we cannot proceed. We also need to know the name and address of the shipper plus your contact details & detail and contact for the quarantine kennel. Information on the cat including details of breed, age and vaccination papers.
Address and contact details for you or your client. If you have already sent a cheque to us for 2200, we will have to return this to you, we will not cash it. please reply asap
Kind regards

If he has any real information on you or the cattery, then all here will suggest you stop all communication with him going forward...


and then bait him for a new address! Smile

If Scammer Rawlings hasn't already arranged for the cheque to be posted to you, he may have seen the warning signs when you wrote this

However if you do receive a cheque (and because he has your real life details) simply tell him that you tried to bank the cheque and your Bank told you that the cheque was fake.

He will soon move on to his next victim.

Hi, thanks for the advice Smile I did receive an email yesterday ignoring what I said in that email totally, it just said that I ought to have gotten the payment by now (which we have not, yet anyway!) and to let him know asap. I've just ignored this & i'll wait to see what transpires. Confused

Many Thanks Very Happy
