list of known scammers
with whom I have have personal
contact via email
Check out this page from another web site listing email
address from known scammers. This man has put a lot of work into
compiling this list and he has discovered that some scammers have
as many as twenty email addresses!
Here's another page from someone fighting the scammers! http://www.bustedupcowgirl.com/scampage.html

8/5/08 firstname.lastname@example.org attempted to have me send him $500.00 to pay for the "airfreight" for two parrots from Africa. He sent me two links to bogus web sites that he said were web sites for the "shipping company" that I was to pay this money. I contacted the server for both of these "web sites" and had the content removed due to fraud!
7/10/07 Here's another way to scam:
From: morgan kidman <email@example.com>
MY NAME IS MR KIDMAN FROM THE UNITED KINDOM. I AM INTRESTED IN THE IMMIDIATE PURCHASE OF YOUR BIRD I AM A BRID LOVER AND WOULD LIKE TO ADD THIS TO MY COLLECTION OF BIRDS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW MUCH IT WILL COST ME .
I WOULD LIKE TO YOU HAVE IT IN MIND THAT I WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHIPPING THEREBY, I WOULD BE ISSUING OUT AN EX-CESS FUND TO YOU AS SOON AS YOU CASH THE CHECK, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO REMIT THE REST OF THE MONEY TO MY SHIPPING AGENCY TO HELP THE IN COMMING FOR THE PICK UP FROM WERE ITS IS SITUATED.
MY PAYMENT METHODS ARE MONEY ORDERS OR CHECKS.
LOOKING FORWARD TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU SOON. BEST REGARDS, KIDMAN.
In this scam, the scammer sends a bogus check in excess of the price of the bird. The victim "cashes" the check and sends the bird PLUS MONEY (the supposed overage of the funds to be used for shipping). The check, being bogus, does not clear and the scammer makes off with the birds AND SOME OF YOUR HARD-EARNED CASH! DON"T BE FOOLED BY SUCH EMAILS!
10/4/06 Here's another scammer using my images (removed from this copy of his email) that I took of my pet Hyacinth Macaw, Iris, and of my husband.
Thanks for the respond. Ana is available and i really need a new home for her, one that will have lots of
affection and love to offer her and most especially experienced with birds. She is aged 10months old. Hand raised and tamed to get along
perfectly well with humans and other pets. She has been vet and medical checked and is very healthy. She is able to mic
speech with words such as i love you, good bye, good night, good morning, and her name. She has been DNA sexed and proven,
as a female. Our current location is Bertoua where i got to some days ago as result of my new employment as U.S.A volunteer cartering for people affected by the Hiv/Aids.She has a fee of $1400 that includes the cage, flight cost and other supplies she will be coming along with. Attached are pictures of Ana. I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
