Scam Attempts.

July 24, 2010 -

I received a message the other day. They wanted me to email them to get to know them alittle better. I figured it was maybe someone from my city and just wanted to become friends, maybe had similar pets. I did emailed this person. That was a mistake on my part. I have since found that they have no pets and that it was a scam to try to con me by giving me a hard luck story and wanting me to accept funds from them into my checking account. I have since put a filter on my email account to not allow any future emails to come to me from this person/persons. Just wanted to have everyone be aware that this is happening. I joined because it is about pets. I checked some profiles and found there are several non-pet owners there. Why?
