My name is James Larson. Me and my Family are on a Business (Trip) to WEST
AFRICA and we came along with our Yorkie and after a while we noticed that the
african weather is not good for their health and we have not been able to take
proper care of them because of the Mission
before us.

Me and my Family have now decided to give them out on adoption to someone that
can give them a good home and take very good care of them.they are a very
loving puppy, she will be a good companion. If you know you can take very good
care of them do send me a reply back through my email address below or you can
give me a call so we can discuss on phone. I will email you with her pictures
and other details as soon as i receive response from you and i want you to
know that they have all their register papers complete with their record and
all will be ship to you along with the

I hope to read from you.

James Larson

Stay tuned because I have every intention of picking this one apart.

Hello Jimbo,

I would be very interested in obtaining a yorkie. However, I do have
some questions for you. Are they male, female, or both? Also, would it
be possible to send the photo in .fat32 format? I will need your phone
number as well as your
Fedex ID number for the shippment of the dog. In
addition since this is an adoption I will also need legal paperwork
stating that you are willingly giving the dogs up for adoption and you
are voluntarily severing your pet parental rights. Please respond
quickly as the dogs health obviously depends on it.

sorry James,

I do not send money western union, the employees are incompetent they
do not wash their hands after handling everyone's germy dirty money.
also, I still do not have a signed agreement from you that you are
willing to give up all pet parental rights to the dog. I thought the
reason you needed my address was to send this paperwork. Once I have a
signed document from you then I will be happy to send a money order to
you James and only you, no other receipents name and I will need your
full complete address. I have also been in contact with my attorney
whom I have decided to cc: on all my email correspondence with you. He
has advised me you may not have a prepared document for the transfer of
owenership for the dog. Since
you are from the US then you should be
familiar with the US adoption laws and you are aware of my need to
protect my interest. My lawyer should contact you shortly with the
details regarding the paperwork.

Hello James,

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Counselor Betta Ulose. My client
Idant Exist IV has informed me of the situation with the baby yorkie
you contacted my client about. US Law dictates for any adoption
contract to be legal both parties must be in agreement of the parental
rights. Since you the current father
of the yorkie want to give her up
for adoption we must be assured you are fully aware of your rights and
what you are about to do.

My client would like the dog do be raised as if she never left the US,
which means after the dog is sent you will not be allowed any more
contact with her or my client again. Also, since this is a contract for
money you Mr. James Larson will need to sign the attached documents
indicating you are receiving money for the adoption and you are aware,
your pet paterntal rights will be terminated.

As soon as this document is signed and returned to me, then the process
of the monetary exchange can begin. The document is attached, you can
mail it back to my client's address or you can print the document out
sign and date it, scan it and send it back to me as an attachement
using this email address.


Counselor Betta Ulose

Amazingly enough the guy didn't respond, so I prodded him a bit.
Hello James,2350

My attorney has informed me you have not signed the documents. You
contacted me making it sound like the yorkie was in dire need of being
adopted, you forward me information stating I needed to pay you 350 for
the dog to be sent to me. Yet, all I ask is for you to sign an
agreement and to ensure you are the one getting the money that you not
anyone else is the receiptent of the money. I have not asked you for
any money nor have I asked you for any account information like you
have done to me. All I did was make an honest request asking you to
legitiamize the deal you wanted me to make with you. Since you will not
sign the papers or acknowledge that you have received anything from my
attorney I can only assume you have an issue with making a signed
promise. It is sad you value money over a life
James, maybe one day God
all mighty will forgive you for your tresspass. Only low life belly
crawling yellow backed bottom feeders like yourself have an issue with
signing contracts or making good on any deal. For the yorkie's sake I
hope the dog runs away from your foul soul for that is the only way it
will be happy.

Not like i don't want to signed the document i think i have told you in my previous mail that am here for the mission work and am very busy here even the yorkie is at airport already and there's no way i can do that to signed the document because all the yorkie papers has been pack together to airport that's why,ok for you to believe me i we like you to pay $200 and i we add you with $150 for you to believe me,am a man of god and i can be think for a person like to be lose trust me the yorkie we shipped to you as soon as the payment was confirm i promise you if it's not what happen i don't pray to if out the yorkie because i really love it so much but i can't take care of her because of the mission i have here and am very busy and there's no way i can be take good care of her get back to me.
may god bless you and your family.

I've tried to prompt him since but of course he refuses to respond. I think I may contact him under a different email address see if he tries it again. Oh and in case you are interested here is a copy of the document I asked him to sign, hee hee:
I, _____________________________, do herby acknowledge I am voluntarily giving up my dog for adoption for the monetary amount of 350 Pesos. My pet parental rights are considered to be null and void once the contract is signed. Any attempt to regain custody will be considered a breach of contract and Mr. Idant Exist IV will be able to sue me for millions and garnish my wages and my family wages until 2100 A.D. I am of sound mind and body and I am not signing this under duress. I also understand that I am a scammer and any contract that is negotiated with me is considered false and can be used against me as evidence for persecution. I am also in agreement that since I am a low life scum bag that a thousand camel fleas will infest my armpits and my testies will rot off. The undersigned is as useless as a fart in a space suit and should have been left in the desert for wild dingos to eat. The undersigned does here by agree to surrender any legal documents pertaining to the dog as well as all medical records.

I guess the dirty little creep didn't like what he read.


  1. Thank god, I saw this. The same guy has an ad on Craig's list to rent out a gorgeous 3 bedroom apartment in Florence, Italy.

    He is using the name of Peter Boldest who is a Reverend in West Africa.

    He just emailed to give me payment information. Get this...the payment should be payable to Wilfred Anaye in Nigeria.

    The deal is, I send him the money and he sends me the keys to this wonderfull apartment. He is not concerned about the money, only that someone takes good care of his home in FLORENCE!!!

  2. Yeah, these guys are trying everything to scam people. I have so many scam mails offering me money, a vacation home, adopt a pet, adopt me, charity scams, I can't keep up with them anymore. Hopefully this blog will help others from getting scammed. Feel free to send any new scams you see to me at It may take a few days but I'll post them.

  3. Here's the one I received:
