I love the free shipping part. On CBC radio a few years back some enterprising fellows decided to have some fun with a scammer. They let the scammer think he has convinced them to send a sizeable certified cheque for whatever. One fellow told him he'd have to drive his accountant to the bank as he himself couldn't sign. They had recorded sounds like they were in traffic because this guy was now on their cell phone. Just as they are supposedly across the street from the bank, the accountant runs out into the traffic, brakes squeal and the guy is supposedly hit. The scammer was frantic as he really thought he'd duped these guys. I hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. The guys were brilliant.

I had this whilst searching for a horse, and let me tell you they get you hook line and sinker.

Was the husbands horse, they were isn a crash and she is unable to communicate vocally anymore, he died. Looking for a good home for the horse, important over anything, and would like to know more info, riding experience etc.. seemed to know what she was walking about.
And then all of a sudden the horse is in Finland, and I pay half before the horse is transported to me, and then pay the rest when I get him, including two saddles and a bridle.

I did like loveduffy, played along, then said I oculd fly over and meet the horse before I buy as the flights weren't that expensive.

I found the same advert for the same horse saying it was in different places all over the world.

I didn't get a response LOL.

I had the same thing from FreeHorseAds.com. Twice ! The scam fell apart when I started asking questions. It was a "divorcee" angle. Said "she" was in Columbus. I said "Great, I'm 2 hours away. Let's set up a time." She said "Oh, I'm in Chicago now and I can't be around for everyone that wants to see my trailer but you can send the money to a title company." Thanks, but no thanks. Beware !!!!

Had that happen on Craigslist to about 3 years back on a truck. Good thing I caught it quickly on the first email. Makes you think of what could have happened! That's why I am seriously cautious when it comes to Craigslist anymore.

I had a scammer try to buy a saddle from me! The english was horrible and he was buying it as a gift....yadda yadda yadda. He wanted to send me the money and have a friend come pick it up at my house. Oh really? He was in Africa working on a ship and the saddle was going to go to some other state. All he needed was my bank information to wire the money to.......yeah and I fell off the turnip truck yesterday Dude.

The same horses are for sale from every state of the union on some horse sites. You would think the websites would catch them.

That's quite a norm. Especially if you post on craigslist you get all kinds of emails like "do you still sell the items, can you send pics and condition, and how much you want". I just ignore them in 1st place. :)
