I posted Boo on EquineHits about three hourse ago. And half an hour ago I got an email from a man that is interested.
Ok, I'm in a pickle. This guy wants to take Boo like here and now. He wants to make arrangements. To ship him to
Guys I need advice. My family is most certainly not helping here.
What do I do? I am asking him questions about his ranch. He says he doesn't have alot of experience but he wants horses there so his son can ride. I asked him how old his son is and what primarily does he want from Boo.
In the first email, there is good grammar and such.
The second email I recieved is in a bigger font, has almost no grammar, and is challenging to understand.
Is this a fraud?
I don't know. It's pretty hard to tell. It is possible that someone might of hacked into his account and looked through his e-mails and wrote that one to you...
hmm seems a bit suspicious to me. I would make sure you know alot more about him before you hand Blu over.
i would ask for a phone number and call and talk to him over the phone...or I would just wait till the right person comes along and sees the horse in person or atleast asks for a video and more pictures... I wouldnt pursue too much with this guy
you could say that you don't want him shipped, that his new owner has to come pick him up.
I would be suspicious too.
He stated that he wants beautiful horses at his ranch so that he and his son can ride.
(his spelling and grammar is not even decent suddenly)
I told him that I don't think Blu is what he is looking for. That Blu is an active boy that needs to be exercised regularly and can be very high strung. I don't care if thats not the right thing to say. I'm not shipping him across the country. I edited Boo's ad and put, "Blu will go to a good home only. Preferably close or within the state."
I'm so confused. lol.
I think that's a good idea. You definitely never want to talk just over email. People have a tendency to not be truthful in what they are saying. If you get a hold of the guy and can actually talk to him, that might be better.
But I think overall you should just continue looking for more people. Having your horse move that kind of distance is a problem if you want to stay in contact or at least visit the horse. It's a very plausible reason too.
