be careful. ask what the dog looks like, if they hang up and try to call back saying their battery ran out its a fair warning its a scam

It appears that the scammers are leaving false reports on telephone number monitoring sites, so that when contact is received, an owner googles the number & is falsely given the impression that someone has had their dog back by engaging with the scammer, this has been reported but please do email stolen@doglost.co.uk if you are contacted, the numbers are changing regularly and we have full records. Please also remember to report to the Police on 101 and Action Fraud online x

As it's easy to fake From: addresses the original message needs to be analysed per -

to get the name of the Internet Service Provider to who abuse reports can be submitted. However, there are plenty of rogue operators out there who support spammers, in which case the wholesaler who leases the internet bandwidth to the ISP can investigate.

Paul, maybe try emailing stolen@doglost.co.uk ~ include as much info as possible and a copy of the emails you're referring to
Paul
Not sure whether this is related or not, but I have recently been receiving phishing emails purporting to come from the Doglost Shop. They actually come from an address in Lithuania. I have emailed the shop a couple of times about this, pointing out their obligations to keep our data secure, but have yet to receive even the courtesy of an acknowledgement. If there is a better channel for me to report the details to, please would someone in the DL community let me know via this thread? It's in all our interests. Thanks!

Hello, I am Dana’s mum ref 101412. I’ve just received a text. They said they know where my dog is and that if I pay £15 upfront and they will give me the name and address. Then I am to pay another £10 when I collect. I haven’t responded. I can send you further details and screen shots of the messages. I feel numb. 😢Last edited: 2018-11-20 20:48:54 by Michele

Warning to all owners of Missing Pets. Scammers are making contact stating they know where your pet is and need money before they inform you of where.
POLICE AWARE in areas reported to them.
Number being used is 07923915972 but no doubt this will change.
ANY OWNERS getting any suspicious calls are advised to contact doglost.
