1000 euros transferred – Internet fraud: purchased dog was never delivered

A Wolfsberger woman (53) bought a dog for 500 euros on the Internet. But the animal was never delivered. Instead, the woman was asked to keep sending money.

At the beginning of June, the 53-year-old woman found an advertisement for the purchase of a Golden Retriever worth 500 euros on the Internet. After contacting them via mobile phone messenger, she then transferred the money to a foreign account. Shortly afterwards, a transport company contacted us and asked for another 880 euros for the transport. This amount was also paid.

When another 1000 euros were demanded, she filed a complaint.
