Nigerian Scammers Sending Spam to Target Pet Lovers

According to a news by an authentic source in the fourth week of August 2009, Nigerian e-mail scams have resurfaced with a new twist.

It is said that scammers have made Aussie animal lovers their target in e-mail campaign which is known as a spam campaign. In this campaign, scammers have tried to earn money by selling kittens and puppies.

The modus operandi of the Nigerian and Cameroon scammers is stealing the images and names of pets from legitimate Australian pet houses to put them for sale of non-existent animals on fake websites.

They have an amusing thread about that going at cybercrimeops.com. Some scammers are feuding and tipping off the antispammers to the URL's of their competitors' fake "pet mover" sites. One claimed to have been in business since 1969 and to have 300,000 employees -- despite the domain being registered less than a month earlier. They had simply copied the company history of DHL shipping from their website and changed the company name.

The thread can be found here: African Pet Scam Websites. AC forgot to mention that he helped in kicking the snot out of one of the scammer websites. Thanks for that AC! :mrgreen:

Hello,
My Name is Evangelist Mary Woodrow, I and my Husband are on a Christian Mission to Africa and I came along with our Teacup Yorkshire Terrier Babies.
After awhile,I notice that the African Weather is not good for the puppies and have not been able to take Good care of them the way we always do because of our Job.
They are HOME RAISED, VACINES & HEALTH GUARANTEED.
I need someone to adopt both and take care of them.If you can take good care of them, do send a reply and I will email you their Pictures and full details about them.
I hope to read from you.

Regards,
Evangelist Mary Woodrow.
