Needless to say, no paper work was ever sent nor any flight details.
Ramsey was supposedly  flown in and in the caring hands of COROWAY PET SERVICESBut  there is a problem with the paper work because Ramsey was registered in the UK and considered  as a smuggled dog.
Dave the courier (084 544 9498) phoned concerned as he had  to bribe an official to get the dog released in his care and he desperately wants to help me but We need to pay him R2900 to get Ramsey re-registered through the spca and lucky for us, he has the contact within the spca if we pay him straight away.
Long story short..the courier avoided ANY meeting in person to confirm he has Ramsey. He is ignoring all phone calls and so is the breeder.
I wish that there is something or someone who wants to help to stop these horrible people!  
Hope this will help someone!
Be careful out there !

    Tried to see if she Chantel Wilson, was a fraud but could not get any details on this till today. I already paid the monies for Lola and then they needed more money for a thermal crate due to cold weather condition's. He - Andrew - required me to pay the additional fees through a PEP Teller and I refused asking for a formal quote on a registered company letterhead. Chantel the send a mail saying I must please pay or else I will not get the puppy delivered. I refused telling her 'n have spoken to SAA and they knew nothing about theyr claims. Now she is not responding to any communication. I have reported the matter to the SAPS for all that is worth.

    This is exactly what happened to me today. I wanted to get my son a pug for his birthday. On OLX I came across an ad placed in Edenvale for two pugs (one black, F and Fawn,M). I phoned the number of a lady called Marissa. A black, confused girl answered the phone and said it was the wrong number, I re-dialed and same happened. I then requested info through their e-mail web. A few hours later I got a reply: Now I received 27 photos of 6 different pugs and the entire enchilada that you got.
    I thought it a bit rich. I mean one must be aware of the number of units you have available to sell, then it was odd that 2 days after placing an advert, the owners relocated to Swellendam - to an address unknown to the deeds office too. Sooooooo many certifications the line of these dogs was surely nothing further from royalty.
    Sooooo many whistles and bells - crates with lights, brand collar etc that in comparison made the dog the cheap part of the deal.
    On closer inspection the dog called Maggie was indeed the dog called Buster too, from the photos sent to me.
    One of my dogs was a lab trained for the blind, and they are a super breed, but this little dog outdid the lab as it could understand half the Oxford dictionary and do super tricks all at the age of 8 weeks - house trained, the works.
    Now, no JHburger is a dumb-burger so I had to google for myself.
    Thank you very much for posting this. I sincerely do hope that you find a dog meant for you as I did.

    I just received the exact same mail! I was going to go look at them on Saturday!!! Except for Corgi's. just seemed a little too true! Stupid people...... Ah i just actually want to cry!

  • Louise7 23 Jun 2015, 06:45 PM

    Thank you for this warning. I almost got scammed trying to buy a French bulldog Lola from Cathy Elsa Taylor from 9 Somerset St, Swellendam, CELL: 0719127259 The advert looks exactly the same. Couldn't understand how someone from Swellendam will advertise in Johannesburg. When I googled who they are, I stumbled across this site. Thank you

    Hi guys Just a heads up, The bank will never give out banking details or account details. You can only report a scam to them through their fraud division and request them to close the ewallet account! So happy that so many people didnt fall into the trap and was saved of the heartach! Nothing came of Ramsy but atleast all of you are aware and didnt fall for these heartless scams. All the best to you guys!!

  • Duarte da Silva 19 Jun 2015, 06:48 PM

    Thanks folks. I was nearly scammed today by Barbara. Something didnt smell right about only paying R500 for transport and R2000 for a Kusa registered puppy. When Barbara requested an ewallet transaction I declined asking for bank accoubt details. The following was provided : Capitec Bank Jason. A Acc No:1311122344 Br Code:470010 When i asked for ID she became indigant and I decided to do a search, bringing me to this website. Thank you all for the contributions. Maybe the bank account will help track down these thieves! She is now using the following email

  • Stef Venter 26 Aug 2014, 01:50 PM

    Just had the same issue almost with rag doll kittens, But thanks to the above info I was not scammed, Lennon when asked to get the Vet's detail he said he is in America and will only be back next week. Make 100% sure who you are buying from remember you as the buyer have the right to demand answers as well Good luck
