Sphynx Kitten Fraudster

I was just caught by one of these kittens for sale scams. Looking for a Sphynx Kitten I replied to an ad in junkmail. I received an email from Craig Kareen craigkay@hotmail.com stating that the kittens cost R2000 each and delivery for the kittens would be an additional R360. He sent pictures of his "available kittens" and had a very convincing story of how they wanted to let the babies go to a good home as "his wife" is suffering from spinal problems. He asked a whole bunch of questions trying to "express his concern of the kittens going to a good home". I said that i would pay him half the money and then pay the balance when I receive the kitten. Monday 25 March 2013 I made a payment to "craig" to the amount of R1180 and he said that my kitten would be delivered on Tuesday 26 March. He even made a fake "Transfer of Ownership" certificate just too blow more wind up my rear. Tuesday 26 March 2013 I received an email from info@safreightandlogistics.co.za saying that I needed some special crate for the kitten to be air transported from Upington to Cape Town, I live in Pretoria and the kitten was in "Nelspruit". Luckily in the end I only paid R 1180 instead of R6000. Please guys be careful, these people are very convincing

    I was too looking for a sphynx kitten and a guy from upington said that instead of me paying for the kitten they'll give it to me for free but I would have to pay for the transport which is R950. I've emailed but when I call the cell number it goes straight to voicemail. Does anyone still have the fraudster's cellphone number? I'd just like to make sure before I pay anything. The reason they are giving their kittens away is because they have moved to an area that does not allow pets and have to find homes for the kittens they have.

    I have just been scammed by this bastard. He was selling french bulldog puppy - paid R15000 before I realized - is there any recourse thru this website - he was using locant for this scam - I have the apparent address and copy of his id book - probably identity theft but investigating

    Same incident, different animal..... I am grateful to have seen this post before i went along with this person.... Same guy posing as Craig Kay. I spoke to him on the phone and his accent concerned me. It was strong West-African accent. He said he was Belgium. Also the same address was given as the post above......
