Well I have been receiving a lot of spam e-mails for my horses. Here are some examples.

I sure wish there was some way to catch these people.

Also has anyone e-mailed them back and asked them lots of questions, just to see what there response is? I have e-mailed one and even told them I was alerted that this was a spam and they still denied it.

Hello , please I would love to know if you still have this beautiful horse for sale . I am interested and ready to buy as soon as next week .Thanks . Eric .

I e-mailed this first one and ask him where he was located if he needed help with shipping and that I thought this was a scam. This is his reply.

Thank you so much for the email . I am very happy to hear that you still have this sweet horse . Well , I want this horse for my family and this is not a joke .

Well , I am buying it as a surprise gift for my family . We have 2 horses already but everyone wants to ride at the same time and have fun with these mules . So coming across your add wasn't a mistake at all.

I will love to have the horse as soon as this new week and I will make preparations for the pick up once I get in touch with a shipper . Please let me know your final asking price and also if payment by wire transfer would be good . That is the best option for me right now . Thank you .

Be on the look out for these scammers.

We just received one from that Kate Williams too! They need to find a REAL job!

Kate must REALLY want an animal as I got the same email on a donkey that had "sold" on the ad LOL
They must be getting your email addys off the website where you are advertising. I don't have any horses for sale anywhere and I'm not getting spam for sales. Maybe you could contact the places you place ads and see if they can filter some of these obvious spam responses out before they get sent to you. Not sure how but maybe giving you a mail box through them where the spammers don't get your personal email where they can filter out most of the spam.
