I would like to let everyone know that the name of the people who scammed me were Nora Carter/ [email protected] ,Felix Figuero and ideal pet movers out of Dallas(supposedly), [email protected] ,on a pet for adoption scam.The phone number used was 901-217-3565/2064247253 (not sure what the last number is). If it's to good to be true it usually is a scam. Sorry I had to learn the hard way along with the rest of the good people out there. If any one knows where else to post this warning please contact me. I would like to post in all the places I can about this!!!!!!

Hi Sandy and welcome. :D

I'm sorry you were scammed. Thank you for taking the time to post this information about the scammers.
I have split your post to it's own thread here about Pet Scammers.

If you would like more places to post the information, I suggest doing searches for anti fraud forums and sites that focus on Pet adoption, etc . If you would like this scammer to have some of his time and resources wasted, please visit our sister site, www.419Eater.com. To post the information there you will need to include it in the context of a scam email or link to an ad/profile. If it's posted there, scambaiters will contact the scammer and pretend to be a victim, stringing him along.

Have you sent a payment to a scammer with Western Union and now realize it's a scam? If the payment has not been picked up, you can cancel it immediately! 1-800-448-1492

Welcome to ScamWarners mandie1969. I am sorry that you got scammed by this criminal. You have explained in your account how these criminals work. They come up with delay after excuse to get you to send money to them to get the pet they have advertised. Sadly, there is not pet, only more reasons to send money.

Yes scammers can use different emails to send this poison around to as many potential victims as possible. Many different scammers use the same script. The effect is the same, they take money from unsuspecting individuals.

Thank you for posting the account of what happened to you with this additional information. It is helpful even if someone has gotten caught up in a scam.

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.
