I am heart broken from my experience with this scam.I have been duped of over $525.00 , funds set aside for a memorable birthday gift for Michael , my son.
I looked through a few listings for bulldog puppies and got in contact with this lady who indicated she needed to re home her 3 puppies.I thought i was a very lucky person to have what i want just right there for me.I had to accept for the lady to get them by pet courier as she noted she resided at Tampa.I have never done a thing like that (transporting an animal), but she advised me it was all good .She had to get them right to me , i always had the feeling NY was quite a long way.We agreed on $525.00 as the total fee to be paid for the whole package, which included handling charges.
I confirmed with the lady by name Susan Freed,next thing she had to get the courier contact me for the funds.I had bad feelings about paying upfront but my choices where all limited to what Mrs Susan Freed dictated.
Early in the morning i got a call from a man indicating that i have to make available the funds for subsequent transportation.I had received a lengthy email which clearly stipulated that my payment had to sent to Cameroon, West Africa and to a certain Nke Valentine Yong, with the address below
Name : Nke Valentine Yong
City : Bamenda
Address : Commercial Street
Country : Cameroon
Phone Number : (+237) 7451 8654
The first thing i noticed was that i was dealing with an international courier service.they bluntly asked me to pay by western union the total sum of $525.00.With many worries on my mind, i got in contact with Mrs Susan Freed and she advised me to pay directly to the delivery firm as they have indicated.
I had just an hour given to make the payment ready.I had to rush out and get the money sent by western union to NKE VALENTINE YONG.I had two calls from the delivery firm (+237 7451 8654) , all in a bid to make me hurry up with the payment.
After i transferred the money, i received a call from the same man and number even before i got back into the car.I had to communicate the confirmation code which was a number on the paper work from the western union.
I almost had a heart attack when i got back home and received another email from the delivery firm asking for $1100.00 for travel documentation.I got in contact with Mrs Susan and she gave me the same " it"s all okay, pay them the money". At this point i was confused, it is in that confusion that i decided to contact my attorney who came and made me see the light.
I was scammed out of $525.00 which i sent to the company with Manager as Nke Valentine Yong.I was ashamed and wondered why it had to be that way.
I stumbled on this blog just when i was reading through a lot of such scams.I decided to put down a little bit of my story so that other can learn from it.
DO NOT send money by western union to NKE VALENTINE YONG, in Cameroon or do not answer any call from this international scam number +237 7451 8654.
Buy only here in the States, i am a victim of the scam.
