Scams on the Classified Pet section

Post by Thaiclan » Sat, 18 Oct 2008 10:59 am

Hi, I dont really know who at SE I should contact so I thought Id post here.
I was interested in a dog up for adoption advertised recently on SE classifieds section. After a few emails (with the language sounding just a bit off) it transpires the poster is in Africa (Cameroon). Firstly I enquired why the price went up once I emailed my interest (at this point I thought they were in Singapore) and I got the Cameroon story and how he needs the money to accompany the dog etc, plus $100 for food he needed to buy!
Ive had plenty of spam mail in the past about bank vaults full of cash that just need a bank account to deposit into etc, but targetting potential dog owners - now that's a first!
So not sure whether SE should put a notice on the classifieds section warning future users.....
