Pet in Airport
How the scam works:
The crooks send emails claiming to be airport employees. In the message, they notify you that a pet is being held at the local airport and request money to pay for vaccinations before the animal can be shipped to its final destination. To make it look more realistic, they also claim to be in partnership with several international airlines operating out of the airport and mention false tracking numbers from non-existent airline veterinary departments. The most recent “Pet in Airport” scams have come from San Francisco.
How to avoid:
No matter how much you love pets, never send money to people you don't know. There are several other ways lost pets are being taken care of.
