Rottweiler Puppies Fraud

I was deparately looking for a Rottweiler puppy for my female. I then googled and found a breeder by the name or Lesley Churchill from Westen Cape whom i emailed and enquired about puppies. He then replied, send me pictures of puppies to choose from and said im welcome to come view them at 79 Swart Str Heidelberg Western Cape. They costs R2100 or he can also courier the puppy with an additional R850. I then agreed and paid R2950 on this account no. Fnb Acc No. 62605738288 Ongama Nyangule branch code. 2540050. He then confirmed that he indeed received the money and he will do paper work and courier the Puppy Saturday (2016/05/14). In the morning he emailed me( and said he just took the Puppy to the courier and it will fly by 11. I was then contacted by a gentleman called Micheal Brooks from SA Pet Courier claiming that they cannot fly the puppy on such weather conditions unless i take out an inssurance. He then emailed me the information and i realised that it costs R5500. Thats when i started to realise that am beeing robbed. I called Mr Lesley Churchill but his phone was off. To date, he still don't answer my calls thought it does ring. I also called Mr Micheal Brooks and he also does no longer take my calls.
