Bulldog puppies SCAM


We bought and paid for a bulldog puppy for 2500.
The "breeder" requested R3500 at the last minute for a special crate to ship it in. We have yet to receive the puppy even though we were willing to drive down to 9 Andrew Whyte Street, Swellendam to get the puppy.

He used the name Garry Stewart Neil FNB account number: 62429778402 as well as S Mgol FNB account number: 62429923958 and M.M. Barry Capitec account number: 1359666255. His cell phone number is 0781069808. HE IS A FRAUDSTER. Do not pay him any money.

    My paths just crossed with this scammer. I was looking for Bulldog puppies. He's email is dawsonkeithclay@hotmail.com the ad was served on Locant.co.za He replied to my emails way to fast, he had too many puppies for one litter, all which were immediately available. The price was too good to be true. Also recently relocated to Swellendam. How convenient. There's a special place in hell for these people. Using cute little puppies as bait. :(

  • J8 25 Feb 2015, 10:55 AM

    Going by a different name - also Swellendam same cell number - fortunately I am a very cautious person so I googled the number and this came up Thanks to everyone for the warning just sorry for those who have lost their money.

    The e mail below is another scam regarding buying bulldog puppies , they require a eft payment upfront apparently for shipping expenses, please be aware . Suzan venter ventersuzan@gmail.com

  • Anonymous46 10 Aug 2014, 03:26 PM

    Thank you for publishing your stories, we also avoided being scammed because of it. We were contacted by someone with the following email address ethankirklandlayne@hotmail.com regarding Rottweiler puppies but when I Googled the cellphone number provided (0833183021)I saw your stories. The fraudster gave us the below address to pick up the puppies as they "recently relocated": 4 Bethel St, Swellendam,6740 Western Cape, Swellendam Thanks again!

  • Gerda6 1 Aug 2014, 07:58 AM

    I can't believe what I am seeing! I just got scammed out of R2500 as well. His name is Dylan Alston Carney with a Capitec account. Phone number 0833183021. I "bought" a Maine Coon kitten from him. Same story. Wanted R5050 for a special crate, but checked with SAA and found out it was BS. His wife was also at the airport with the cat's toys. Blah blah sob story...He also told me he was a born again Christian, and would never scam me, when I confronted him. But became very aggressive the more I challenged him. He had the same French accent and "lives" in Swellendam. I get so angry when I hear about this sort of thing. Yet I feel so helpless. I will open a case against him. Wish me luck.

  • phoenix kent 31 Jul 2014, 03:06 PM

    Barrett Connell Giles a scam!! He is now trying to sell maine coon kittens. Got a loooooooong email and plenty pics, but as soon as i wanted to come view kittens, suddenly no response. So glad i checked the name here, seems he ran a bulldog scam too. Please people, buy through a registered breeder to avoid heartache.

  • Rolan 28 Jul 2014, 02:58 PM

    I replied to two separate adds on Locanto to buy two French Bulldogs and guess what....I got the same reply, with same photos from 2 different email addresses, when ask if I can come and view the dogs, one is based in Swellendam, 4 Ashton Road, AKA Dylan Carney Alton and the other one is in Northern Cape, Barret Connell Giles. If it is to good to be true, it probably is!!

  • Kim3 24 Jul 2014, 03:16 PM

    These sick people are at it again!! My husband and I just got scammed for an adorable little french bulldog pup!! People be aware of a guy, french sounding, name Dylan Carney Alton, who claims he is from 4 Ashton Road, Swellendam, Western Cape, using a Standard Bank bank account!! These people are sick, and need to be caught!! It's so sad that you think people have a loving caring side who just want to find good homes for animals, yet they turn out being sick pigs who just steal money through peoples love of animals!! I have the cops on this guy and just hope that they catch him!!!

  • Katinka2 9 Jul 2014, 09:50 AM

    I suspect this is the same person : http://johannesburg.locanto.co.za/ID_274608745/Purebred-English-Bulldogs.html After i asked to come view the puppies - he was never to be heard from again. The add says Robin Williams - but the email address was : Darryl Howard Josh darrylhowardjosh@hotmail.com

  • mary2 20 Jun 2014, 11:50 PM

    Add placed on locanto on 20 June for French Bulldogs: http://johannesburg.locanto.co.za/ID_270766102/KUSA-registered-French-Bulldog-puppies.html is an exact copy of an add posted in america just a few words changed and the pictures are exactly the same aswell. http://austin.ebayclassifieds.com/dogs-puppies/kempner/akc-registered-french-bulldog-puppies/?ad=33758803&msg=OUT_OF_AREA

  • VolkanMustDie 23 May 2014, 03:58 PM

    He HAS NOT been tracked down or stopped. My friend just lost all the money she has ben saving up to buy her dog, she bought it toys and everything. Today when the puppy was supposed to arrive she got suspicious and Googled the name, so now... How the frack can you do this people? forge the damn money, these people were expecting a new member of their family. This is absolutely despicable.

  • Username6103 10 Apr 2014, 08:44 AM

    Thank you for publishing your stories. Because of all of you we were spared getting caught out by these scammers!!! We were contacted by Andreas Volkan regarding a Bull terrier pup but when I Googled the email address she used all of your stories popped up! My sincere apologies to those of you who lost money, but THANK YOU once again for sharing your experiences.

  • Username5974 24 Mar 2014, 11:49 AM

    My mother has just been scammed out of R2,500 of her pension money for the 'cutest little chihuahua puppy'. And now they want another R3,500 for some kind of special 'container' to transport the puppy in. Numbers used were: 0744979870 / volkanpuppies@gmail.com - "Andreas Volkan" in Barkley West. This number is used to advertise puppies all over the country, but every time with a different name. She even produces an ID and proof of residence, which is probably someone other's identity having been stolen. 0604788850 / skyanimalpost@post.com - "Bryant Cobi" supposedly from the courier company that will ship the puppy. He is Nigerian - you can hear it from his accent. Also, this very same number is also used to advertise puppies for sale all over the country, each time with a different name (why would a courier company be involved with dog breeding, unless they are in cahoots with each other?) He is unable to supply the name of his courier company, a tracking number, or produce an invoice for the amount that is to be paid. These people are puppy scam operators. Avoid!

    Hi, my wife and I have been scammed by the same person. Beware of any transactions with Jason Gareth Neil or dr Morgan Palmer. The culprit uses the following contact information, cell: 0783951573, email: jasongarethneil@hotmail.com or dr.morganpalmer@live.co.za.

  • Hester Kruger 29 Oct 2013, 03:07 PM

    My number is 084 311 9698.

  • Hester Kruger 29 Oct 2013, 03:06 PM

  • Carla12 29 Oct 2013, 02:36 PM

    Thanks everyone, we were just dealing with this guy. Because of this website we avoided being scammed!!

  • Hester Kruger 29 Oct 2013, 02:33 PM

    Hi Guys. i have just been scammed. wish i saw this before. the guy that i was dealing with was Jason Harvey Troy. 078 106 9808.

  • Username4559 27 Oct 2013, 01:56 PM

    Hi Johan, I'm glad to hear that someone else is also trying to do something. I have been annoying the police with my phone calls, they used to say he would call me back which never happened so now they tell me that the officer is on leave. I won't stop until they take my calls. We all need to be proactive and prevent this from happening to someone else. Should we get in contact and actively pursue this?

  • Johan Willemse. 27 Oct 2013, 10:06 AM

    Same happen to me this guy must get caught by police to by us it's not difficult we just need to put in an effort. For the sake off all of you I will get him and hand him over. Please do not pay any money to Jason Harvey Troy he is a big piece of trash, scum of the earth. Be aware not to buy anything over the internet or any EFT transactions I don't trust anybody anymore. This is the time we are living in. Crime pays in South Africa I will not be surprised to find out that our authorities and crime prevention units are part of this if you see what cars are driven on the roads these days it's scary.

  • Username4559 23 Oct 2013, 03:22 PM

    I opened a Case in September. Cas249/9/2013 Florida. Warrant Officer SE MATLAPENG tel: 0118317000. Maybe if other people contact the police they will actually do something.

  • NOS2 18 Oct 2013, 08:58 PM

    The police can track these people by their cell phone very simple. But the police dont want do do their job. This is my number 0739557394

  • Jannine 17 Oct 2013, 10:15 AM

    I think these are all fake names used in various different scams, but all connected to the NIGERIANS!!!! I just responded to an add for Rottweiler puppies in Roodepoort, got a reply to say they have reloceted to Swellendam in the Cape and i can fly my puppy up to JHB, SCAM ALERT!! These mongrels resally think we are all stupis, NO THANKS!! I will find a REAL breeder. The address I received feedback from is: Jason Harvey Troy jasonharveytroy@hotmail.co.za Googled it and came on this site, so i think they all form part of the same syndicate!! Caution! Beware! Dont fall for it, always check and never agree to fly your purchasee, they will steal your money and get rich being dishonest, the most dispicable pieces of vermon ever to crawl the earth, thats what they are!!

  • Username4559 14 Oct 2013, 09:07 PM

    I feel your pain Yolandi but the police are just not interested. They are cruel. The man even said his wife was packing the puppy's toys. If we keep publishing these details, maybe we can help someone else.

  • Yolandi 14 Oct 2013, 08:54 PM

    I wish I googled this guys number before I paid him, I googled the name Jason Harvey Troy, this was the name he used to scam me. He even asked me if I am a Christian...He used ABSA account number 9288301005 and FNB account 62429923958 I was supposed to receive a french bulldog puppy

  • Username4559 10 Oct 2013, 06:39 PM

    Hi Benton, I don't see your comment but I would like you to publish the phone numbers they used to prevent this from happening to someone else. I gave the police bank account numbers, emails and phone numbers. They have done nothing and these scammers are free to scam others. I think the criminals rely on the fact that the police are incompetent.

  • NOS2 19 Sep 2013, 06:27 PM

    Yes I did speak to her she also uses this number 0781069808. Some times she answers the phone an gives stories that her phone speaker is not working. Please contact me on this number 0739557394

  • Username4559 18 Sep 2013, 01:22 PM
