On Thursday 29/11/18, I contacted an add on OLX for a pug puppy. The lady I spoke to was quite pleasant and showed me a few pug puppies she had. I picked the one I want and then later asked for some assurance before I pay. She gave me a long story about being a Christian and quoted a Bible verse and sent me her ID. To my disappointment on Saturday I messaged to find out the details and she said I would receive and email shortly with the shipping details. When I received the email, alarm bells rang. but for some reason the lady reasured me and only paid 1000.00 she told me she would cover the balance of 4000.00
The next morning I called and got not answer, eventually I messaged her and she replied she is trying to get the extra money. I then cancelled and told her I would no longer be buying the puppy as she is just clearly messing me around and she agreed to refund me. I whatsapped her and told her I want the refund. She then blocked me. I called her from a different number and she gave me a long story and told me I will get my money the next day. she then put down. When I called her again she kept saying she has the wrong number.
The 1000 was send via ewallet and when I tracked it, it was collected in Witpoort. So I doubt she is even based in Kimberly

I hope this helps someone else as I have lost alot of money and had a very upset son, as we saved up to buy him a puppy for his birthday only to be scammed by these people. Hard working people have to deal with such terrible people.
