Barking dog drives man to fraud

An irritated Linksfield, Johannesburg, resident appears to have been driven to faking a NSPCA letter to silence a neighbour’s barking dog, the council said on Thursday.

“It’s possibly a dispute between neighbours,” said Christine Kuch, spokesperson of the National Council of SPCAs.

“Somebody is being driven nuts by this dog.”

The fake letter that surfaced in Linksfield is dated August 14, with the heading, “Incident Report”.

It reads: “Dear sir/Dear madam, It has been observed that a dog on your premises has been barking continually day and night. It seems the occupants, your selves (sic) are not at home.”

Printed at the bottom of the notice is the name “Corlia, local SPCA representative (Gauteng)”.

Kuch said there was no Gauteng SPCA and no Corlia known to the council.
