I stopped emailing him. It's definitely a scam. His ad said he was in OK, but the phone number was in AL, and he says he's in California. Now he's trying to convince me to pay shipping. 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
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.
