Hey guys and gals,
So, long story short: I tried to buy a puppy online and was scammed out of $1500.
My bank (ING) just sent me a text yesterday to say that they were unsuccessful in trying to recall the money I bank transferred to the "breeders".
It turns out that this was a sophisticated scam where they had stolen the identity of a woman and made it seem like I was dealing with her.
I reported it to the local police (Victoria Police) which was a waste of time because they just said to report it to cyber.gov.au.
Cyber.gov.au sent me an email to say that NSW Police are investigating the matter.
Anyway, I want to know if any of you guys/gals have any ideas for how I can get my $1500 back?
