Someone has recently listed some capuchin monkeys. This ad is a scam. I responded to the ad to see what I would receive. Here is the reply:


Thanks for the mail and your interest towards baby Bella & Rick.they are still available to any family prepare to provide them with enough care and love, where they will be well spoiled with all their needs. Bella is the Female and Rick is the male white face capuchin monkey, Bella is 15 and rick is 18 weeks and some days old respectively.they are champion bloodline, vet check, updated in all shots. Well-tamed and potty trained , good associate of kids and other house hold pets also very Energetic and eager to learn.

They are intelligent, independent and courageous. Quick to determine where they fits in a household's "pack." Good companionship and friendly towards new people.

To begin we shall like to know more about you.

-Are you a breeder?
-Are you familiar with capuchin monkey?
-Do you have kids?
-Do you have a Vet Doctor?
-What is your occupation?
-Give me a Brief Description about your Environment?
-Were exactly are you located?

Sorry for all this Questions (I mean not to offend you ) but just that I really need a loving home for this monkies.

I am located in Littoral Province (Cameroon), Reason for Re-homing this babies is because I currently work at a Vet Here in Douala Cameroon And not yet a Full Time vet.I recently won the A.A.P.D Scholarship to Further My Education In Brazil And i can`t take them with me because i will have no time to take care of them there.I will be Very busy with my Studies.I am only looking for someone that will be willing and able to care for my babies Bella & Rick.

I need an urgent home for them so badly.I am asking $580 for both of them, I am not out to make money since they are just like my own child,my main concern is to give them the best they ever want.all I will like to hear from you is to Promise me that you would shower them with lots of TLC .And I would never like that my babies should end up in a shelter or rescue.,feel free to mail me.If you are willing to get them,please e-mail me asap so that I would stop all other contacts .If you have any more question to ask I will answer you truthfully and faithfully.I have attach their pictures for you.
