PAWFECT BENGALS — REFUND
Independence Day aka Indy from
Graham and Sandra Baker – Pawfect Bengals Cattery. Indy was to be imported to Australia. I paid $2000.00
for Indy on 05/04/13. I then paid all Vet Fees as required by AQIS and on 25/10/2013 I paid another $761.90 for Indy’s freight.
I received an email from
Graham :- “Hi
Very upset at the moment. Just got back from the Airport.
Indy is not coming to you today. He is rescheduled for Wednesday.
The cost of the flight is 798.87 not the 339.78”.
I asked for proof of extra
shipping cost and received no reply from either Graham or Sandra Baker. I was told the extra feight had to be paid on
the day of shipping. Payment was refused via PayPal and I was not given any
payment details, so that I could pay Air Canada direct.
Email from Graham “If he does not ship out next week we will be under
weather restrictions here due to cold and it will be hit and miss when we can
If this will not work in
your schedule we understand and will cancel the agreement”
I cancelled for 2 reasons. First reason.
There being no proof of extra freight charges. I have a friend who had a Bengal shipped to Australia and same airline a
month earlier. Her total bill was just over $700.00 and I also sighted a copy
of her air freight bill.
My second reason is I had asked for the registration/pedigree
certificate and l was told:-
“Here is the situation:
Indy’s TICA registration is pending as I have told you. I have
provided you with his parents’ registration numbers with both TICA and CCA. I
have emailed you a copy of his CCA registration and his championship
status. Therefore there is no excuse not to accept him based on registration”.
I contacted TICA and was informed there was nothing pending for
the Cat, Pawfect Independance Day.
It is the law in the state I live in that ALL entire cats owned by
a registered breeder must be registered with an Australian Cat registry to do
this l required a certified pedigree not an emailed copy.
They agreed too refund me the cost of
Indy the male Bengal less deposit and the freight.
I have not seen a cent of the refund.
The Bakers said “Initial funds have
been returned with a message that this is an invalid bank
Please resend your banking info.
I contacted bank and
asked them what I had done wrong. The Bank informed me that the banking details
l gave were correct. I sent the details
of another bank account to the Bakers and still no refund has been received by
