    I recieved this email just today. It is merely another way of getting information from a person who is naive enough to give it to them.

      Eh, I don't know, I think this probably is a good thing, because it might raise some flags for people who are unaware of the scam.

      Once the scammers evolve and are writing emails with perfect grammar and with a basic understanding of the language, they might be harder for some people to catch.

    Are there not special restrictions on importing even domestic/pet animals from overseas to the US? I can't recall.
