Angry Some people just want to make you go @*#*&@

Ok...I know I get very strange emails, but this one really worries me...I got this email this morning....I almost wantt o respond because it sounds so ominous...



Hello,
I have some clients looking for golden retrievers and services, and I'm seeking one breeder or company to send them to as a go-to source. I'm not going to work with 10 breeders or company`s, just 1. So please have the owner give me a call to discuss an arrangement as soon as possible at **********
Regards,


****

I'm not sure what capacity this person has emailed you in (ie: are you a breeder of Goldens or...?) but their email is extremely rude.

I'm no one especial. I help some rescues with fostering and have pets of my own..I think it was a mass email, but the content is very disturbing....he actually has a phone number to call him at...and a name...

I've been getting something similar and I think it's coming because when I googled for our dog trainer she came up on an ad on Kiiji, which I read.

Sounds a lot like one of the offshore scams. Either that or a broker, but I would bet on the scam thing. I would not even respond to this if I were you.
