ONLINE PUPPY SCAM


I responded to an add on www.junkmail.co.za for a great Dane puppy, after numerous emails and sms's I paid for the puppy and the transportation from uppington to PE. I was then asked to urgently make an additional payment of R5000 which would be refunded for the courier crate required. The numbers and emails involved in this scam are as follows:
