Yep, in 99% of cases that's the case but there have been growing stories of local people basically adopting the strategies of the "Nigerian scammer", some with specific interests. Quite a few in the large parrot world actually - but they are also common targets for theft as they are quite valuable locally and very valuable, not to mention highly illegal, in overseas markets.
