Pet Selling and transportation fraud

I enquired post advert on olx for chow puppy. I got response via email with over of the breeder and their breeding approach which is "holistic ". I was impressed that I am buying from responsible breeder. The lady called Michelle Wegner sent me application form. Then sent pics. Spoke and responded via whatsapp. Have me her bank details in a full form with terms&conditions. All look professional. I made deposit of R3800 which included transfer cost. Puppy to collect by Saturday. On Fri she sent me msg to say it all on track. Saturday morning received an email from transfer company called "Life unleashed pet movers" on letterhead and names of vet etc. Advising me that due recommendations from vet a special crate is needed and insurance so I need to deposit R5050 of which R5000 will be refunded after delivery pup. It was all a scam. Cant get hold of breeder. Not responding to my calls or whatsapp. After I said I won't pay anymore money and asked for their exact address he also no responding to email or calls.
