Wow that looks so cool. I washed my lamb. He was very mad about it. How should I clean out his ears?

I went to the ranch to pick up my ewes, right address, wrong people, no sheep. I got scammed out of my deposit. phone number no longer works. I feel real stupid. It's not anything I like to admit to, being made a fool of. It's never happened to me before and I can't even be mad about it, just disappointed in myself. Oh well. I'm gonna look on the bright side, it galvanized me to to go to San Antonio and visit my friends and I got to see some lovely country around Llano. I took some pictures since @Alaskan asked for pictures of where he was raised.

OMG @Baymule . What a DA#N shame. You need to report it to the police and to where you saw the ad for them. Let them know that it was a scam... might help the next person to avoid it and might help them to get caught down the road.
I am sure the people at that address were surprised and even dismayed at that too.
There is so much of that going on nowadays... Sure hope the deposit wasn't too bad of a loss... although any amount is bad in general.

I am so sorry... especially for those of us that try to do things decent and honest; it hurts every one of us.

I am so sorry that happened to you!

Scams are everywhere! DH got an invoice in his email the other day and was annoyed because it was for more money than he expected it to be. In fact, he "thought he remembered" cancelling the service from that company. He got on the phone with them (using the number provided in the email) and they kept sending him to different websites to cancel. The website they sent him to wasn't working but for 19.95 you could download the fix. I told him to hang up! Hang up - if it seems wrong - it probably is.

He had responded to that email using the number provided on the email. I explained that that is a big no-no. Whenever I receive an email like that I NEVER respond to the number provided in the email. I go to the company's own website and cross reference the number and will use the number provided there.

The other clue - the email to respond to the BIG Company's email was a g-mail account. Nope!
