Wow, he sure went to a lot of trouble! For your sake, I hope he is honest, because I've never known a horse scammer to make so much effort... But you're definitely doing the right thing by reporting it.

From what I have found on facebook this guy is a scam artist and the shipping company he claims to use say they have nothing to do with this guy.

I don't know if I am allowed to post a link to the facebook group that all this all came out on or not?

Any updates? I did some googling and found the address that SOKY uses is the same one as the Kentucky site of Arabian Rescue Mission. I also found this story Horses rescued Local News Glasgow Daily Times, Glasgow, KY. So maybe this isn't a scam?

Strange- I can actually still see your post about him not answering your calls.

It comes up in "Recent posts by others" on the right side of his page...

I sure hope he finally calls you back!

According to what I have found on facebook the guy is supposed to be arranging transport for the horse. The transport company he claimed things were set up with knew nothing of the deal.

I'm not at home or I would do it, has anyone done a image search to see if those horse pics are anywhere besides his facebook page?

Doesn't seem to match any other images on the internet.

Update: The whole issue *appears* to have been a lack of communication. (SOKY didn't answer my calls or voicemails for days, the group's Fb page was apparently temporarily down for some reason, and I wasn't told that they were no longer working with the former transport company).

I posted this same question on a Fb group, and the verdict there was that it was definitely a scam, but people appeared to be very angry and have an agenda... so I'm not very sure about the credibility of some of those comments.

I finally was able to get in touch with Jeff, and SOKY is arranging transport for Lemaan with a different company. I will update again in a few days and let everyone know how this turned out! Thanks again for all the feedback :)

I've seen links to SOKY on the AERC FB page, so I hope for you and for the horses it is legitimate. Please keep us posted and I hope you get your boy soon and safely!
