Puppy scam - pedigree / purebred Staffy puppies for sal

I have found on Locanto Pedigree Staffy puppies for sale - R3,000.

Once I have mailed (because there was no contact number available) the puppies were all of a sudden in 34 Roper Street, Douglas. But were advertised on Locanto in Amanzimtoti South Africa!

The seller replied and sent me some pictures of the puppies, so I had a gut feeling and did a google search and saw that this is not the 1st time that they have tried to fool people buy selling puppies that most probably dont exist!

This is what he replied on my mail

    They are doing the same with Rottweiler Puppies, Alias is Estel Gregory Cell 0783325672 she is asking R2000.00 + R240 for Courier fees from PMB to any destination. Even sends you pictures of children playing with the dogs. once you pay the fees you get a phone call from Pet Delivery Service a DR Thomas Cell 0717640332 who says you need to pay him R5050.00 for a Special Crate to transport the Pup. once delivered you will be refunded R5000.00.

    Note this is a huge Scam and they have been doing this for some time.

    They are doing the same currently with an advert for pedigree Ragdoll kittens on Locanto. The kittens are advertised as being in Durbanville (CT) then when I enquired I got the same email that you did (but about kittens) and also being in Douglas & the courier etc.
    Thank heavens I googled and came across your report of the scam. THANK YOU!!
