Hello, could you tell me what the email is for this Cameroon person? Im a newbie to this, and I've noticed she was too quick to jump the gun to sell them to me. I have a vast knowledge of gliders to say the least- but she didn't seem right, So basically i've been keeping up communications with this individual and I Haven't given her any information period. I Just keep on asking questions and throwing in little accronyms that she should know, I've also contacted foreign authorities of the situation.

Oh MY GOSH! I soooo wish I had found this site BEFORE I got scammed last weekend by that VERY PERSON with the EXACT SAME EMAIL! Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I fell for it hook, line, and sinker. I am "new" to gliders as far as the colors, color pricing, etc. I rescured two gliders back in 1998 and they died of old age a few years later just before I moved to CA in 2004.
I am out 650.00 plus the gas to drive to Las Vegas, NA (160.00 in my truck), an over night stay at a hotel (100.00) and the fees so a total of 950.00 total. It's upsetting to say the least and it will never happen again. It started with the transport company she "used" : Starwood Pet Delivery/Transport out of Delaware.
Lesson Learned AND I want to know what I can do to report her/him/whoever. I want to lay the law down hard. All I was trying to do was give a glider a good home. Grrr...

Me and My Roommate came across this scam as well.
We were looking for our first pair of gliders after a couple months of talking about and researching.
We caught on to the scam early but strung them along a few days digging and digging into information and keeping records of emails and phone numbers. I have been in contact with the actual transportation company they claim to use as well.
Anyone who fell victim to this I am so sorry !! But would advise contacting your local Attorney General, the Local Police who will help you get in contact with the federal counterparts to report this too such as Secrete Service and FBI. Sadly you probably will not get any return on your money, but maybe if enough people report this with all the information they can the scammers will be dealt with.
To those who havent yet please watch out for the following contact info ...
Pamela Kelly Sawyer
watch specifically for this phone number as well 876-364-6584
if any of that information becomes part of your contact report them emediately.

The contacts that came up when I was scammed were Kathee and Pamela and when I refused to send them more money (after I'd already sent some for the gliders the transportation service tried to extort more out of me).
THEN THIS Monday after swearing them off and telling them to kick rocks I got a CALL from David Cooper (of course I didn't know he was linked to this until just now) who said they had two standard greys for 200 each. He said send the money western union and to not give him the 10 digit mtcn until I had the gliders (as proof he wasn't scamming). I told him I didn't feel comfortable with that and asked if he could send pics of him with the gliders to my phone or email and he couldn't so I said I'd pass. I also told him I was looking for light colored so the standard grey wasn't what I wanted. He asked me if his FLORIDA could contact me once they located a light colored joey!!!!
I should call the police...my best friend, Brad, is with Darien Sherrif's deparment in GA which is the state where Pamela was and where they wanted me to send the money.....he could drive up to Covington, GA. And to think, Brad was just hired on to Florida Highway Patrol lol...maybe he can help take the jerks down?

Looked at my list of recent phone calls and came across two more phone numbers ...
209-479-7018 California number
585-633-2330 New York number
best thing any of us can do is continue to report anything we can to everyone we can, authorities, websites etc, eventually if enough people are made aware of this there will be no one to fall victim.

I just got done emailing a scammer. I knew it was a scam when he said that his gliders were on their second of three rounds of shots and they had already been micro chipped for me. He then said that he needed me to send him $700 for four sugar gliders by western union because it is the quickest way for him to add my name to the sugar glider ownership papers that will accompany the gliders. Oh....get this...he said he developed a new coloring and that he had four "tiger" gliders. They have tiger stripes and their family came from overseas.
Does this crap actually work? Do people really fall for this stuff? I was doubled over laughing so hard.

dont buy from out of country! if you do make sure you use a safe payment meathod, they give you there info, and you talked to other buyers from them. do not but from the person if they say to pay western union, walmart money gram,ect. if you use these and dont recieve your objects or animal you cant get your moneys back. if your emailing the person detect if they are trying to get the money quick, not giving alot of info, or making excuses why you cant do pickup. try to study and look at glider pricing depending on color variations and age or package deal. leucistics would cost wayyy more then standards so dont fall for a standard being sold 150 then a leucistic only 250 if bought as a pair!! LIESS! i have experienced people like these and still searching for my fuzzies!
hope this helps
IF ITS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.. IT IS!

I was almost scammed on my birthday by a person under the name "Gliders Lover". They could barely speak english, and refused to let me pick them up, insisting on shipping them. I told her I felt uncomfortable so she said she felt offended I didn't trust her and forget about it. I later found her e-mail under a scam list. She is also posting the same ad (with the Wikipedia picture for a sugar glider)on Craigslist under all different cities in all different states. So yeah. Here's the e-mail just incase. email@example.com... There's also a FaceBook page I believe... -__-
