another scam!!!!!! this one with pets

My daughter had listed her 2 cats up for adoption online a couple of weeks ago. she received an email from a person claiming to live in washington and wanting the cats. asked my daughter how much she wanted for them and she would have someone to pick them up. my daughter explained that they were free, but the person insisted that she take some money. my daughter gave her our address, and she received a money order in the mail today for $750. I immediately contacted this person, and this person stated to cash the money order, keep $70 for the pets and give the rest of the money to the "shipping company" that would pick up the pets. we sent an email back to this person and told him/her that we were not cashing this money order, and that they could not have our cats. we then received another email from this person stating that if we would not give them the cats then to at least help them out and cash the money order. we immediately stopped contacting this person and have alerted the local authorities. i did a search online, and there is an alert out there from the fdic stating that these money orders and cashier's checks are circulating and they are counterfeit. please make other people you know aware that this is happening.

OMG!!! The EXACT same guy wanted to buy my horse and
sent me these checks too....the SAME person from Washington,
and my story is EXACTLY similar!

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!
