Pay Attention !!!
Hello everyone, it has come to my attention that an ERIC LOCAS of France is contacting papillon breeders in central and eastern Europe posing a potential buyer of a puppy. BEWARE - It's a scam. Eric Locas 24 rue Ferdinand Janin F-92340 Bourg le Reine France email@example.com Tel.Nr. +23470277038
The supposed Mr. Locas will offer a cheque in a much higher amount than the asked price for the puppy and the cheque will actually arrive per DHL or other courier service. He suggests a date for the pickup of the puppy by his handler, a Nigerian called William, William Ayorinde 3c,AL-Baraha Close Lagos State Nigeria firstname.lastname@example.org. to whom the remainder of the money (the difference between the amount on the cheque and actual puppy price) should be transfered before the pickup date.
One of this cheques was checked by a bank and it is forged, we have a written statement from the bank who supposedly issued the cheque. Mr. Locas frenquently sends emails to the breeder and requests a lot of photos and data on the puppy (-ies). He really plays on the emotional side with emails like he misses the puppy, can't wait to get it etc., trying to speed up the transaction (so the breeder transfers the difference before puppy is picked up) and finish the scam. Please spread the word about this scam to all breeders you know - we believe it is not limited to just our breed.
Pay Attention !!! Eric Locas or William can change their names and adress, but the game will stay the some-to get money from trusting breeders.
