I told him I could not trust him, and now he's acting desperate saying that the shipping company is a third party and I pay to them not him.

    Anyway, I've decided to look at another horse as a project that isn't trained. That's be much funner anyway.

    Thanks for making me see straight. Sometimes I get so excited I ignore the HUGE signs. :/

    Thanks, Bless the horse forum
    Glad you stopped contacting him.
    The part about the shipping company is a load of bullcrap. They'll get you to send money to pay for the shipment before the horse is delivered... and the horse will never be delivered because it's not real.
    IF you were to say that you would arrange shipping with someone else, or you wanted your choice of shipper, you'd see just how quickly this whole thing would fall apart.
    In fact, if you even asked specifics about the "horse" I'm sure they would just press on about others being interested, and you had to pay for shipping right now otherwise they would sell the horse out from under you.

    Considering that 2 ads have exactly the same wording, less the horse name and age, and the picture doesn't match the description..... I'd say 99.9% it's a scam.

    It's up to you, but you might endanger yourself.
    Actually, she can block the number. My cell is blocked (for free by my demand from my cell company I've been with for 10 years) for such reasons.

    I do remember reading the website, where the lady actually made SCAMMERS to pay to her. Like sending information with FedEx and such. That was just SO hilarious!

    Good for you. There are a lot of really horrible people out there who will try and take anyone who will let them for a ride. Sometimes you just need to weed through the bad to find the good. I hope you find a really great horse and everything works out well for you!
