  1. [29/06, 11:07 am] +27 64 046 1691: we have sent you an email you should check
    [29/06, 11:19 am] +27 64 046 1691: sir this is a delicate stage of the final processing which only makes you entitled after this Value Added tax has been paid
    [29/06, 11:19 am] +27 64 046 1691: you only become entitled to this ONLY when the VAT has been paid
    [29/06, 11:19 am] +27 64 046 1691: your seller is aware of this
    [29/06, 11:20 am] +27 64 046 1691: you should talk with him am sure you both will find a way to see this through so that same day we can send you the money into your account
    [29/06, 11:20 am] +27 64 046 1691: its a process that needs to be duly followed
    [29/06, 11:21 am] +27 64 046 1691: what i mean is that your seller is aware that before an entitlement is paid, there must be VAT which needs to be paid
    [29/06, 11:23 am] +27 64 046 1691: then you should watch your mouth
    [29/06, 11:23 am] +27 64 046 1691: i was willing to help you out in this fee but your running your mouth a lot
    [29/06, 11:24 am] +27 64 046 1691: i will talk with your seller. We will need to ensure we pay the $2187.5 today so that your account can be credited with the $6250 total entitlement
    [29/06, 11:25 am] +27 64 046 1691: i am willing to help out with $1000 but you have to promise once the company remits your account, you will send back the $1000 to me through your seller. Do you promise to do that ?
    [29/06, 11:29 am] +27 64 046 1691: when the $2187 is paid which is VAT, a total of $6250 is what will be sent to your account
    [29/06, 11:36 am] +27 64 046 1691: that is not how it is been done
    [29/06, 11:36 am] +27 64 046 1691: if the $2187 is not been paid then the insurance company nullifies your total entitlement
    [29/06, 11:37 am] +27 64 046 1691: you don’t have money and i understand you perfectly well which is why i am offering to help out with $1000. So now it is left with $1187.5 which will be lacking
    [29/06, 11:41 am] +27 64 046 1691: there is one thing you fail to understand. I am trying to help you here but seems you don’t appreciate
    [29/06, 11:41 am] +27 64 046 1691: Go get your lawyer little man and when its clear you have to pay this fee, i will not be in the position to help again with the $1000
    [29/06, 11:42 am] +27 64 046 1691: you will have to pay it all by yourself

  3. I have reported a pet scammer on Facebook for months and nothing has happened. He even stole one of my puppy pics and has it on his page. I reported to FTC and other government agencies and know one cares. People have contacted me that have been scammed and reported it as well. All his photos and videos are stolen off breeder websites or from the internet. I reported his gmail because I have email confirmation on how he will ask for money to be sent Western Union Friend Family. How can you stop this puppy scammer ?

    TAKE NOTE OF THIS ADVICE :
    WHEN MAKING THE PAYMENT AT THE WAL-MART STORE OR WESTERN UNION ASK
    FOR SENDING FORM AND MAKE SURE YOU FILL OUT ALL THE DETAILS CORRECTLY
    ,AFTER THAT GIVE THE FORM BACK TO THE CASHIER
    WITH THE MONEY AND ALONG SIDE WITH EXTRA CHARGES THAT THEY
    WILL ASK FOR SENDING THE MONEY.WHEN YOU’RE DONE JUST TAKE A PICTURE
    OF THE RECIPT AND SEND TO ME SO I CAN PROCEED WITH THE SHIPPING
    NOW LISTEN CAREFULLY IF THE CASHIER ASK YOU WHY ARE YOU SENDING THE
    MONEY TELL THE CASHIER THAT YOU WANT TO SEND THE MONEY TO A FAMILY
    FRIEND SO THAT THE SENDING CHARGES WILL BE LOW.IF YOU SAY IT’S FOR
    COMMERCIAL/BUSINESS PURPOSE THEY WILL CHARGE YOU HIGH SO TELL THE
    CASHIER IT IS TO A FAMILY FRIEND.HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND ?
