Oh I do the same thing! Yes it is fun to play with them but so sad
to think of how many people have sent them money. Another one I
heard about is mean. They look for lost pet ads and send them an
email saying that they found your pet but they had to go to Africa
and they will ship your pet back to you for just $200, $300. etc.
Hurry send money now. If you don't answer the next message is your
poor pet is hurt and sick! Nasty people! Tell them you have a friend
that lives right by them and watch how fast the "PET" is gone. The
worse ads seem to be on yahoo.
This is a link yahoo has telling us how to avoid scams.
I think they need to add some of our suggestions!
