    What triggered my suspicion is that a Mr Albert Potgieter was talking in a funny accent and had a limited English vocabulary. Cindy van Heerden,see earlier post,tried to buy a puppy called Rocky from this guy in December last year. Well he is still advertising the same puppy. His new contact number is 083 421 2026. Please be careful.I was lucky to Google his name and not to loose money.

    Almost got caught by this same guy. He is now using a D. Venter's ID as proof... this is not the real man, and the real D Venter has opened a case of ID theft against him. Again, using rare breed puppies from Bloemfoentein on cell no 071 785 2908 Please take care.

    If only I read this before I paid for the puppy!!!- I ordered a miniature beagle for R2800 from supposedly Bethlehem from a guy called 'Bradley' Only once I paid did my gut feel tell me something is wrong- I found 5 active ads hairless cats and other rare puppies) in 5 different locations and under different names (Also called Yvan) So today they called me about the travel insurance- I quickly founf that the adress in Bloemfonteins on Google streetview is where clothing and chain shops are. He used the number 0785778631 and the other guy uses 0722154119. So I phoned the polices station with the previous case number and told them that if they play quick then can still catch these guys as their phones are still on but our wonderful detective couldnt care less to assisst.

  • cindy van heerden 18 Dec 2012, 12:43 PM

    We too got scammed - ordered an maniature english bulldog puppy named Rocky thru an advert on the web reading Contact as potgieter.lorrynacy@gmail.com - and spoke to a man by name of Albert - we supplied an eft of R3400.00 into a std bank account (P.L Nacy) on 17th Dec 2012. Just to find out that it's all a scam. been waiting for flight details of our new addition. Now been contacted by Morgan Morris from Pet airways to respond to an e-mail. E-mail address animalairways.courierservices@gmail.com - cell no: 0717515540. Thank goodness I googled the e-mail address to fin your comments! I pray that the eft is reversed today! PLEASE CATCH THEM AND PUNISH THEM!!

    I was just taken by the same scam. I feel really naive for trusting these scamsters, but it all seemed so legitimate. I was slightly sceptical at first, and the chap whom I spoke to, Charlie, told me that he understood my hesitance, and that he would accept a 50% upfront payment, followed by the balance on delivery. This made me feel much more at ease, and like a fool, I proceeded to transfer the funds. Thankfully, when I was contacted by this Morgan character, I looked into animal airways out of interest and found this page. I guess lesson learnt. I will not be doing any further business on Gumtree, or any other such site again.

    I also got scammed yesterday with the exact same thing the breeders name is suppose to be Jeffrey Mason and the telephone number0780127812 fir a west highland terrier. I lost my deposit only but it really hurts cause we got so emotional attached already to the puppy. The animal airways company Morgan Morris telephone number 0717515540 also wanted the amount off 3700 for insurance which was supposed to be refundable but i did not pay that. I logged a fraud complaint with the Bank and the police case number: 190/10/2012 yesterday. It is scary how the operate i still get messages that the puppy is in durban and because i did not pay the insurance he will be given to the dog rescue, I is such an emotionally sich scam!!!!!

    Hi, I have clients who have also been scammed by this same scheme. please can you supply me with SAPS case numbers should anyone one have opened a case.

  • BM 8 Sep 2012, 03:28 PM

    We were caught with the exact same scheme and people. When we got contacted by the couriers (Mr Morris) I googled the "Pet Insurance" stated in the e-mail, and realized it was a fraudulent deal. We lost the deposit only. We lodged a fraud case at Nedbank.
