PUPPY SCAM AND COURIER COMPANY IN CAHOOTS


I bought a puppy and paid R 5000. sapuppykennel@gmail.com - ALL went well and I paid for courier service by air - R 1000. When arrangements for flights was confirmed, all of a sudden new laws require spesific containers for puppies below certain age and a refundable deposit for the "box and injection:" was requested - R 10 000 AND confirmation was received from the courier that all was in order for delivery, I received another mail from the courier demanding R 24000 FOR Liscense fee that was required as the puppy was confiscated due to not having this lisense. Then i realized it was a scam. Details of the so called courier sapettransport@gmail.com. Clearly this is two companies working in cahoots. Please be careful - contact me should you require more info 0448710337. I have reported the scam to ABSA to block the receivers accounts and will be opening a criminal case tomorrow.

    HI, yes, i have opened a case and an investigator was appointed. Please contact me on 0448053431 tomorrow and i will share the info i have and give my investigating officers details to you both. Struggling with the bank though, battling to get the fraud dept to give me feedback.

    It is probably the same scam as i uncovered, started in Prieska, and then suddenly when i said i'll send my own couriers, their address miraculously changed to Upington. they call themselves South point puppies, phone number +27 63 364 7031, Mitchell Catherina
