NO MONETARY DAMAGE. I had to add some form of price for this system to accept. I caught the scam as soon as they asked for money.
BIG Tip also..........You would think a prominent Oncologist would know how to spell. I have attached the actual emails I received from them.

  • I had the same email but from a Charolette Cray (also in Hawaii now) - dogs named the same but breed was mentioned as was their feeding schedule. HUGE SCAM! I reached out to a few others on the site - not a one of them was legit. Only one had email had a good flow and sounded right - but then the follow up emails were broken like all the others. I'm guessing the first was a generic and proofed many times - the responses have to be direct to the other people and that's where the broken English comes in... I got one email from one of them - supposidly living in Arkansas, but the phone number is from Cameroon, Africa
