Hoax: Puppies

These Here is a picture of cute pups were found in the STREET over in Park Slope, Brooklyn somewhere.

HOAX ALERT: I can’t be bothered with stuff that isn’t confirmed anymore… Unless you can give an address or it’s from a confirmed local source, such as a pet store, etc. No more of these will be posted. MOVED OVER TO “RECENT INCIDENTS” and off the home page.


Rescued 6 black lab (mix) puppies out of the middle of the road on Saturday. PLEASE help find them homes – otherwise, it’s Animal Control – which means they only have 5 days. We’ve bathed them, sprayed them for fleas and wormed them….but we can’t keep them. They are currently in a kennel in my basement since I don’t have a fence. I’ve lost count of the number of rescue groups that I’ve contacted, only to be turned down due to no room. Please check with every dog person you know to see if they need a puppy.

If anyone is interested, or knows anyone who might be, let me know.”

[quote comment=”46438″]I just called the guy and he said there are no more puppies, but his cousin is a wealthy Nigerian diplomat with 17 million USD in a Swiss bank, and all I need to do is pay the escrow release fee of $10,000 and he will split the money with me 50/50. I told him 40/60, and after a while he agreed as long as I also pay a $5,000 wire transfer fee, which is peanuts compared to the incremental % of the 17 million (sucker!). Those negotiation classes at NYU really paid off!

So anyway, this time next week I’m going to be sitting pretty on my ranch in Costa Rica surrounded by as many cute little puppies as I want!

So long suckers! :twisted:[/quote]



I like baby animals too.

And further, 411: Reading your post…. Sorry you were left feeling hoodwinked by someone local who seemed trustworthy.

Is it possible that s/he was also hoodwinked?

I followed up w/the posted email address, only to receive an “I’m really sorry, I was forwarding what I’d received, so I also got snookered…” kind of response.

Talk about some sociopath’s “Whisper Down the Lane.”

So many of us animal lovers have a knee-jerk reaction, when we hear about animals in need (esp. baby animals).

Heinous for that to be exploited.
