Yeah, decades ago, before the internet era, our cat disappeared. We put an ad in the paper and had a dozen people call us, saying they found our cat. Some of them were impossibly far away. I think some of them might try to kidnap a pet "to order" for this kind of scam.

The cat never was found.

I have one other word of advice: microchip. They don't cost much. This goes for everything from cats and dogs to horses and cattle.
