These are certainly not for sale in the UK... dont forget people DONT click on any of the links as this will surely push our friend at RPK up the scale. DONT be tempted to open up 'any' of his websites. ;)

I've reported it. It doesnt actually given you any scope to say why you are reporting it though. Hopefully it will make them check all the other ads the person has put on.

Tamaskans may not make appropriate guard dogs, but Tamaskan lovers sure do! :lol:

Nice "watch dog" action and investigation!

Well their is another one of Kevin's emails I am guessing... Probably should screen shot the page and take the link down. Just so people aren't tempted.

I dont think this is to do with RPK. I think it is just a money scam. There are probably no puppies. They've probably just lifted and used the RPK pic.

I didn't think about that but that is probably more likely... unless Kevin is trying a new business venture on top of his puppy mill.

No, Fiona is right. This is a typical money scam.
Look back through some of the old posts in this section... it's fairly a common identity theft / deposit scam.

Yes it's obviously a money scam, do people really fall for these scams?

yes i think some people still fall for it. like the e-mals that get sent out saying "you have tried to log into your online bank too many times and it has not been blocked, click hear and enter your bank details" etc....

it's things like this that make me ashamed to be the same species...

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

Reported.

Here's hoping that whoever they are, they don't turn up again.

There are heaps of those scams on aus. (haven't seen any for tams, but heaps for huskies n other kinds of dogs). Once you email them they start saying how many do you want when can I send th to you. Oh ik actually not in your area, I'm in south Africa. Please send me $250 and I will ship it to you straight away blah blah blah.
