Sounds fishy - however, depending on how much info was in the add - it might be legit - just someone with no social skills at all. I would call and tell them that you only accept cash and if that is ok. If they start in about a money order - you know that it is a scam and to contact the sherriff.

DO NOT give them your address until they tell you that cash is ok. Typically they will not list a phone number, only an email address for correspondence.

Hope this helps

is the phone number local?

Try searching it on google. Some people have removed theirs from searches like that but others havent' and ti will bring up their name and possibly even their address if a home number.

Calling someone doesnt' hurt most scams come as e-mails.

If you are not so sure still, then try e-mailing them back with YOUR phone number. If they really want the goats they will call you.

Some options to figure out if they are a scam or not.

Dial, #69. That blocks you number. Call them. I mean maybe they really do want them.
