Beware of scams and puppy farmers
Man people see the opportunity to scam innocent people by placing fraudulent ads on free websites that do not confirm the breeder’s background. They often claim that their puppies are registered. Most of the scammers are not even in South Africa, but in other countries, they have unbelievable cheap puppies of popular and “rare” breeds. After a puppy is “booked” and sometime paid in full they ship the puppy, and it get stuck in Botswana or wherever, and the client has to pay for the release and the price gets more and more. There is also a disturbing trend of using popular South African names and phone numbers. And be aware of ads with broken English and e-mails with poor grammar. If unsure google the e-mail address and you’ll most of the times will find out fast if the “breeder” is a scammer, the e-mail address is most of the times on a scam database.
Only buy dogs from registered breeder from well known South African registrars.
