Scammed by Breeder selling bullmastiff puppy

I was scammed by a lady who goes by the name of Natacha Van Zyl 073 956 3891, selling a bullmastiff puppy for R4000. She offered to do the transportation of the puppy at an extra cost of R800. On the day that the puppy had to arrive the apparent courier company by the name of Pet Delivery aka Animal Movers Delivery ,Tel: +27-818-596-171, Fax: 053 831 4038
Number 20 Graham Street,
Email:, emailed me and said the puppy needs a new crate of R5050. At this moment I was beyond shocked. Phoned the breeder, Natacha and ofcourse I could not get hold of her. I ran the fax number of the courier on google and it brought me straight to this site. I was not the first and I'm sure these people won't stop with these scams until they are stopped. After multiple attempts I finally got hold of her and she explained she was in a meeting but I have to pay the courier company. I asked for my money back and ofcourse that was no option.

Please be aware of these heartless people. On watsapp her profile picture is about what God says and status is about a good womans fellowship group. She sends you a top tv account as proof of her adress which says 22 King Street, Springbok. And even pictures of the parent dogs. She has names for the puppies aswell. She asks you quite a few questions first to make sure the puppy is going into a good home. Its all lies. I hope this prevents the next person from being scammed.
