Horse Thieves in the digital age and how to protect yourself and your horses.

This is a MUST read as we at Amaretto Ranch Breedables have been forced to make a POLICY CHANGE.

First for ALL HORSE BREEDERS that wish to sell horses:

Following these steps will help cut down on the current rash of stolen horses.

If someone contacts you and is interested in purchasing a horse that is not already marked for sale please use the following steps to protect your horse and yourself.

If you wish to sell the horse…Please take the horse to a private area and NEVER set the horse for sale in front of the interested party that wishes to purchase the horse. ALWAYS either set the horse with your sale price in a private area or take the horse into your inventory and mark it for sale via right clicking the horse and choosing  the properties, set the price your desire to sell the horse for, click the For Sale box and than rezz the horse.

Again we must stress NEVER mark a horse for sale in front of the interested buyer.

Secondly we would like to start by giving some advice on how to identify when BUYING a stolen horse!

Most breeders and horse buyers know how much a horse is worth and what they are willing to pay for it.
If you have someone approach you with a very rare horse (charmed for example sake) and they want a REALLY low price for it…or lower than average price that you have seen….chances are it is a stolen horse. You will now need to take these actions to Linden Lab.
( Amaretto will no longer be involved in these types of disputes).

So Please when buying horses stick with the old saying “If it sounds too good to be true…it probably is”.

We have had a rash of horses being stolen over the past several days. Amaretto has always wanted to protect the community however we can no longer keep replacing stolen horses.

You are responsible for the sales of your horse. You are responsible for setting your horse for sale in a safe manner so that it can not be stolen.

So as of today Thursday July 7th 2011 Amaretto Ranch Breedables will NO LONGER REPLACE STOLEN HORSES.

Although we feel terrible that anyone would have property stolen, we have offered you ways to keep your horses safe and protected and your sale to happen without conflict.

We hope you heed our advice as we do not want to keep seeing stolen horses. You have the power to protect yourself.

We appreciate your understanding of our new Policy Change.

Have a great day and be safe in your sales endeavors!
The Amaretto Team~
