    Hi guys, I recently got a phone call about someone also defrauded by these people using a fake hip and elbow dysplasia certificate that was issued by me in 2011, but obviously altered according to their specific needs. You can see the certificate is fake, since the fonts differ. However, to try and get to the bottom of this I would like to figure out where the fake certificate started getting around as that may bring us closer to finding these con-people. Thus, your help is needed here. If you were provided with (fake) documents like hip and elbow dysplasia certificates during the communication process with these people, could you please pass this on to me or even just the certificate number at the top will help (Will start with an "L" or "F" or "K", most probably). If all of these certificates point to the same person, I will be able to tie them all together and see where it started, because that person is probably involved in this. Much appreciated! Regards and good luck to us all getting these suckers, Dr Lynelle Sweers

    We were scammed in EXACTLY the same way! Same person, same details - everything as reported above, including the story about being a Christian & promising to refund our money. Please be warned everyone, and don't get caught by the same crowd of unscrupulous fraudsters!
