This is a fairly common scam that people run. They advertise the horse as being super well broke and bred for such a low price. The only problem is that they require you to send them the money and a money order for transport before they will send you the horse. Then they take the money and run cause there is no horse.

that add does seem weird. And there's a Dallas County, Alabama but no straight up dallas alabama. This is definately a too good to be true thing.

plus dont friesians mature around 16 hands?

its a scam.

Loook also at the fact there is only one photo, with really bad quality, and it is rather small.
there is no phone number and also the fact that the information is not correct.

I personally would report the ad, or message them asking them why it is so cheap ;) ?

I went and when shopping to purchase a Congo African Grey, (after lots of research) i had come across MANY scammers, now i can tell right off the back of my hand 90% of the time, if they are.

I learned that if they are from Cameroon, pass it by, it is a scam there is no bird.

Recently i decided to email a scammer for the fun of it, and he told me he was from cameroon, gave me some sob story, blah blah blah.

I flipped out of him and told him what to do with his crap lol,

He told me he was coming after me and that anyone who knows me can go .......... Actually i still have the messages i believe.

But after that ! i found another ad about a congo from him, i asked him why it was so cheap... again haha, next day the ad was removed :)

There are a lot of Friesian scams out there. From what I've read, there are probably more ads for Friesians that are scams than are legitimate. There are several other threads about this on the forum. If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

They kinda remind me of those emails I get (several per day on my work account) for lottery winnings or inheritances with all of the goofy grammer.

That screams scam to me! There is no phone number. You could email them, and I bet you will get something crazy back. friesians are usually used in scams like that.

Yeah... the name of the seller: 'olivia'. Anyone selling a horse who really had one would put their full name and would include capitals :D.

I saw a similar ad for two friesiens in the Toronto area, only the person said they were "giving" them away because they got a promotion at work and can't spend any time with them.

My curiosity got the better of me and I answered the ad, and they sent me about 10 pictures. They asked me where I was from and I answered back with a "general location". I'm just waiting to see how far they will go with this. LOL

I have probably made sixty threads on this subject alone.

lol

No it's not. A stud fee maybe. But nothing else.

In fact I think I know who is in that photo. It's a scam.
