Hi bessythe best, Welcome to the forum.  Just as I knew....NDP confirmed the email was a SCAM attempt. I sent them a response email hoping it would give NDP enough time to get their location.

This was their second email:



I want to reconfirm my interest in purchasing the puppy  and I am happy to know that it is in good health . I would not be able to come over to inspect the present  health and physical abilities of this puppy because my work schedule is very tight . .my method of payment will be via a certified check and i  will be responsible for the shipping and  the charges. get back to me as soon as you get this email with your full name and address and phone number so that the check can be sent to you as soon as possible .do have a wonderful day



Again the email they used THIS  TIME: carltonjames6@gmail.com

Their email just screams  S C A M  for the unsuspecting public, but hopefully by posting them here, other buyers will see it and be warned.

jchamp - If you google Judith Longley puppies you actually come up with two ad's for one litter of English Bulldog puppies from August of 09.     She is asking $2000.00 for them (not like a scammer that says they are free or $200.00) and she has good grammar.     She does live in Virginia and has that same e-mail address.   

Your e-mail definatly sounds like a scammer and I don't think it's the same person but how do they do this with the same e-mail address?    I double checked and it is the same address.   Unless the real Judith cancelled her address and the scammers picked it up that fast.     I don't know - I'm just amazed that scammers are so knowledgeable on some of this stuff yet are so stupid to use such bad grammar.

Hi mobullybabies,

I tried like crazy to get a phone number for the judith in VA. I could never figure out how to find one. I was going to call and see if she is a real person....and let her know someone may be trying to steal her ID and information.
