Birds for Sale Posting (Scam alert) (Toronto)

Just a note to be very cautious with these particular ads for birds. I responded to one a couple weeks ago, the seller said she was in Montreal, and asked me to send 50% deposit, and someone would deliver the Conure she posted for sale. I advised I wanted to do the transaction in person, and see the bird at the same time. She stopped any further coorespondence.
Just saw a posting for Macaws. Had a Baltimore phone number, so I assumed it was a similar scam, in which he or she would ask for up front money, and advise someone would deliver it. I flagged the ad, after imagining someone falling for it.
As Craigslist advises, make purchases in person, don't send money. The world it seems is full of scammers.
Have a great day!
