GUY JOEL SIELINOU / Puppy Scammer

1 Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Review updated:

I saw 2 Yorkie Puppies for sale on kijiji and was interested in buying them so contacted this person.He send back saying it would cost $350.00 for each puppy and that he was in Camerrom on holiday and that the puppies would ship to USA and he would send papers.this is what he said:hello,
you seem honest than the other people out here, i do understand you very well about some person who tried to scam another, but i can assure you that we are serious, we are going to ship the puppies to you today, and i will send you the receipt and theirs papers attest that they have been shipped then you must send the cost by wire transfer, cos i don, t have bank account;
we do think that you are the right person to give them loving home, cos you do have another pets,
however i told you that we are located in halifax, but are out of province for holiday in cameroon, so we aren, t in canada now;this mean that your family in halifax can, t meet me; and the puppies will come comfortably by plane ;
we are going to ship them and the shipping company will notify you with receipt of shipping registration ;then you are going to send our money immediately
i will notify you back when they will be shipped to make your dream come true
have a great day.
So I wrote him back and received humpteen emails from him and he said the airport in USA would contact me.I received this:DEAR
> WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PUPPIES FOR SHIPPING REGISTRATION AND DELIVERY WHO HAVEN.T BEEN PAID FOR TWO PUPPIES MUSTED
> BE DELIVERED TO YOUR HOME ADDRESS .THEY ARE IN USA NOW AND WILL
> TRAVEL ABOARD TO CANADA

> TO PAY THIS SHIPPING PETS AUTORIZATION FEE SOON AS POSSIBLE IN CAMEROON

> WE ARE WAITING YOUR REPLY

I emailed him back and said I did not receive any papers and wanted the airport phone number in USA where puppies were supppose to be.He never gave it to me.he wrote me this:no but the puppies have been shipped, why you are stupid??
if you don, t send the cost then i will denied all and they will get back here, i am sorry
you had told me that when the puppies will be shipped you will send the cost,
you are trying to scam me ?? what does that mean?? i will denied all if you don, t send the cost soon
I wrote back that he was a scammer and he wrote this:listen to me very well, i told you that we are located in halifax, but are out of province for holiday in cameroon, so the puppies will be shipped from cameroon, and will cross US to arrive in canada and will be delivered to your home
it is a mistake that you didn, t understood me very well, i am sorry for that dear
I wrote him back he wrote back this:i have called you today twice, nobody answered the phone,
and the puppies have been shipped but conditionally, that when they will arrive in US .you musted pay the cost,
you told me before that when they will be shipped, you will send the cost, why now you denied to make the deal like you told me before??
i do understand that you have been scammed before but, you must know that if i was not serious the puppies were not been in US now.
i am honest and GOD will bless my life, if you don, t want to purchase these our lovely babies anymore; i am sorry we are wishing you good luck to find another one in your area,
but please tell me the truth cos we do would like to notify the shipping company to get back them here
I wrote him back again saying he was a scammer and he wrote me this: i can send you the papers and the receipt, but it will not be important for you now, cos you denied and said you will send the payment untill you see the puppies,
you have the right to do what you think better for you;
have good luck to find another one in your area
I wrote him again and he wrote me this:i sure on Name of GOD, that i have called you today ;
okay, i will contact the shipping company here to more know about that, the thing now is that the puppies are in US, and will not cross to canada without those fee have not been paid,
if you can send the cost they will not travel to canada, i am sorry, it was out deal before
I wrote him back more anger then I was in the other emails as I knew he was a scammer and he wrote this:okay you are welcome
thank again, you must understand too that you can scam me
I wrote him again he wrote me back:okay if you don, t believe in GOD . don, t write me anyways, cos he is the LORD and the FATHER.
you are not GOD lovers, this mean a lot ;
i can accept that our lovely babies come anymore to your home, you seem bad person
I wrote him back and he wrote this:it is not true that you are from strict religious family; cos you don, t believe in GOD
I wrote him back and I never heard from him again.We need to get these people they are breaking laws and hearts and stealing money from innocent pet lovers.Maybe if everyone sends in their
emails from him the police and courts can do something with him and his accomplices.

    I have recently put an ad on kijiji wanting a puppy or young dog for my family. I recieved an email saying that this person had the perfect puppy for my home. After reading this article I have noticed some similarities. It is not right that people like this are getting away with this type of scam. I didn't like a few of the comments in the email that was sent to me, they just didn't sit right with me. I read it to my friend who works for the spca and she agreed with me. I have not responded to the email.

    I have accualy came acrossed the same guy but he is going into a different name now . i got a reply about my wanted puppy on kijiji saying he had a teacup yorkie puppy and this is what he said to me hi,
    thank you for getting back to me; we aren, t selling them; we are giving them free away for loving home and to be spoiled a lot,
    we are located in HALIFAX, but are out of PROVINCE for holiday in Cameroon, so the puppies will be shipped and will be delivered to your home address; you must pay the shipping cost around $125 per puppy to be delivered to your home address;
    do you have another pets or kids?? they do like to play with kids or another pets

    I'm so glad i typed in the name joel siel. Otherwise i would not have found this page and would have lost myself some serious money. He tried to do the same thing to me, except the breed was schnauzers. Same story and everything, lives in halifax but is vacationing in cameroon. What a disgusting ###. I wish there was a way we could catch this person. Thank you for making this public i would have lost a lot of cash.

    Same thing happened to me today with the same name joel siel. He said he had 2 Wheaten Terriers and he would sell them to me at $350 each including shipping. I emailed him back requesting pictures and he has not replied ... yet. I am also glad I checked out his name. Now if I could figure out a double cross ;)
    This is the second scam I have received from the same ad I place on Kijiji

    Thanks for the story!
    I was looking for a Cavalier spaniel and the same guy, jeun siel [jeun.siel@gmail.com], emailed me that he has 2 Cavalier puppies for sale.
    He wrote the same story - that he lives in Halifax, but is on vacation in Cameroon. He told me that he will send the puppies after I send him the money on the address:
    Guy Joel silenou
    7 varsten 21th # 39
    Douala - Cameroon
    However I became suspicious and typed in first his email on google (jeun.siel@gmail.com) and found this website where it said that the email belongs to someone from Toronto, ON, Canada.
    Next I typed in his name and found this website. Now I am sure he is only trying to get money from people.
    I would like to thank everyone for warning others about this guy and I wonder if anyone knows what to do to make the dude pay for all the money he stole from people.
