Nigerians posting SQUIRRELY pet scam ads

Nigerians pretending to be loooking for home for squirrel monkeys in ads on Craigslist. They are trying to scam people into sending ridiculous shipping fees via Western Union. This is very close to the real estate scams that they also run from CL where they need to send you the keys from Africa
Hello Dear,
just saw ur message regarding the baby squirrel monkey that we want to give out.Its a female called Blue.Due to extreme personal reasons and life changes, I must find her a new home. It has nothing to do with Blue. Blue will not be the right monkey for most homes, she needs a really special home. If you are looking for that special monkey, please read more about her. If you are interested in her,I would be happy to talk about her with you, but only after you have read everything below.
she's health guaranteed and will be coming to your home in a travel cage.interacts well with kids, other pets and toys.have an excellent temperament and takes a very short time to know strangers.I have been training blue since she was just weeks old. She was hand fed and raised and trained to be a "PR" monkey. What I mean by this, is that she was raised and trained to be in the public, and handled by the public. She has been featured in many photo shoots, and has been used for educational programs, nursing homes, exhibition shows, and much more. I raised her to be comfortable in the "public eye". Due to her extensive training, she is very social and very friendly. she has a wonderful comical personality typical of monkeys. she is quite the goof when you get to know her. she has none of the bad habits associated with most monkeys.
Blue likes to lie on her back and to be cuddled. she is very affectionate and loving. she likes to be scratched on her head .she steps up every time you ask her, climbs on your shoulder and start massaging the hairs on your head. she has been well trained. she will do well in just about any home where she will get constant attention.
Unfortunately we are unable to keep this great monkey due to serious changes in our circumstances.we want to give her out coz my husband and i went to the hospital some days back after i have been vomiting (approx.twice a day) and also noticing general body weakness and the Doctor discovered that i am 3 months pregnant.Though good news to my husband and i, we weren't prepared for this as we just left Florida and we are currently in Texas for our Honey Moon.Had it been we knew earlier of the pregnancy, we would have postponed our honey moon and stayed back in our country.More so, the pregnancy has been causing much weakness in me so much so that i do not have that required time and energy to devote on Blue.for us continue keeping Blue is like preventing her from her rights as a pet.I feel like she's not having that required time from us to cuddle and pet her.Besides, i want to concentrate more on my pregnancy as this is the first baby that we are expecting as couples and won't want any extra load on me.We are enjoying Texas and do not want to return back now, else we will just fly back.Besides, i do not like traveling when pregnant as it endangers my unborn child...''HONEY THIS IS OUR FIRST BABY AND I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING TO HAPPEN TO HIM'' says my darling husband...he's already wishing for a male child...OHH men... LOL...
My husband and i have decided to re home her.We want to send her back to Florida to any gentle and loving family that is willing to usher the full required time to her.Hope your family is gonna be the best for blue if and only if,you can provide us with some info about your home...that will help us better understand your home.That's your family composition, their reactions towards pets in general, whether or not you've owned pets before and how do you intend welcoming blue into your home. Well i will be willing to give out the baby to your home provided you are going to give her all the necessary care and attention that she deserves in the world.i am not very much concerned about money now, all i want is to ensure that she finds a good home.
Blue needs a home where she will be out of her cage most of the day, getting lots of attention. That is what she is used to. If you think you are interested in Blue, please contact me. I will also include all of her diapers, toys and food samples. she is still a baby, and would make an excellent addition to any home. she's better than getting a tiny monkey, because she's already trained. It will break my heart to part with her, so I would really enjoy a home that would keep me up dated on how she's adjusting. I'm not asking to see her, that would be too hard for me, but an update now and again and pictures would be good.
N/B, since you are not located around us, we will have to arrange for shipping of the monkey okay?, do tell us the name of your state of residence in time.regards
Then when you reply they send you an email like this::
         Please , i want you to promise me that you are going to send me update pictures of blue when you get her, because she's just like a real biological kid to me though i have to let her go. At least, this pictures will help me know how she's doing in your home.we're not actually selling the monkey, but simply looking for a new home for her for the aforementioned reasons.sorry i lost my cell phone in a taxi
               Well, i just inquired the shipping cost from the shipping company here in Texas that i will be shipping blue through and they said it will cost you $270 for the shipping fee.They also told me that there is a flight schedule to your location( florida) tonight at 11pm so i will like to get blue on the flight. You should send the following details which will help me to register blue at the shipping company for home delivery for, i want blue too be delivered right at your home.;
 receiver's full names
 street address
 house number
 phone number
 name of the closest airport to your location
                        the above details will also enable the airport couriers to deliver the monkey right at your home, since they offer home delivery services .once i drop the monkey at the shipping company, i will give them your contact information so that they can get in touch with you with the flight details and payment information of the shipping fee, for you will be sending the shipping fee directly to them.
              Note that blue will be coming inside her cage so you don't have to get a new cage for her . also, i'll be sending her with her vet records and a hand written 1 year health guarantee certificate. I will also include her feeding menu hand booklet which will guide you on what to feed her.
 Once more, i still want to reiterate that you shouldn't break your promise on taking good care of blue once you get her because she's a darling. you will see that for yourself when you get her. i will be waiting for your reply asap   Anna
