Fraud Alert - Seller Beware

Visit : http://gundogcentral.com

**** Update **** Avoid 440-630-5811, this number is from a known scammer. If they contact your via text message.. MAKE SURE YOU TALK TO SOMEONE ON THE PHONE BEFORE YOU SELL THEM A DOG. If they offer to buy a crate for shipping the dog, that's a RED FLAG, avoid this person. If you receive an email from someone named "DAVID" ( [email protected] ) with the phone number 502-509-667, avoid this person as well.

Beware of anyone trying to contacting you trough text messages from (443) 543-6672, they are just trying to run an overpayment scam on you. These request can come from email, text messages or phone calls. Warning sign you can look out for: Offering payment for more then you are asking for your dog. If they contact you and say that they have arranged their on shipment method. It looks like they just copied and pasted the title of your ad into their message. There wording doesn't use proper English. Asking you about facts that are clearly stated in your ad. Asking you to give money to the person picking up your dog or asking for you to send money back. All correspondence sent through Gundog Central comes with an overpayment warning at the bottom of the message. If you ever receive request like these please forward them to me.


The overpayment scam works by sending you a fake check or money order, that you deposit in your account, then they asking you to send part of the payment back. It might take a few days for their check not to clear the bank, mean while, you're out what you send them.

I too just received the same email from Daryl Anderson. and a text from 603-373-2125. Beware, these are the same scams as what happens on Craigslist, and they warn that cashiers checks and money orders can be cancelled and you will be on the hook for funds, the return fee etc.
