We had the pleasure of dealing with Marko Gligic from Von Komar Kennels and unfortunately, the transaction wasn't exactly what we expecting it to be. Marko provided us with plenty of recommendation and referrals including several kennels we had dealt with in the past who had received their canines with no problem. We placed a deposit on a mated female and sent more once the pregnancy was confirmed by ultrasound. A two weeks after the ultrasound she still had not had anything lined up for shipping. Marko stated this was because of the temperature at the time of landing where we were located. I'm aware this can be an issue where I am located so I thought nothing of it. He contacted me a week later and told me that he would be unable to send Frida because her stomach was too big and no airline would touch her. We were very disappointed as we had advertised for her and had several people waiting for a puppy from this litter. We decided because we had fallen for her confirmation and pedigree that we would still like to purchase her after she had her puppies. He did offer us a replacement female which was a standard coat (and more expensive) but we were only interested in a Long Coat with a certain look and coloring so we agreed to purchase her after the pups were placed. Marko agreed and said he would keep in contact, which he did.
This past week I was contacted by a Gentleman who also purchased Frida and she was delivered to him and he currently has her and her puppies on the ground in the United States. Unfortunately, he doesn't have the papers (Pedigree) yet and the puppies are already 5 weeks old. He had seen my ad I had posted to garner interest for Frida and thought I had purchased her then resold her to him and was simply trying to get the pedigree. We soon found out we had been sold the same dog within days of each other. Of course, I wouldn't be bringing her over in a couple months because well he now owned the dog and she was already in the country. Upon further research, we found another man who purchased her as well (which would like to remain anonymous). I would like to add that this female was in fact delivered to the Gentleman in the United States and she is everything he hoped for in a female just doesn't have the pedigree and Marko and Von Komar are no longer responding to any of his attempts to contact him via phone, email, or Facebook Messenger. I contacted Marko numerous times and requested a refund, of course, he is no longer responding to any of my attempts at contact. I will be happy to send emails from this transaction to the admin as proof of his scamming. As well as the number for the gentleman who actually received her and has puppies on the ground.
Please understand that we did not underpay for this female and we did receive recommendations and referrals which I followed up with. It's the fact that he is sending these dogs amd people are getting them so he does have legitimate references but he is selling the same dog multiple times. I would like to add that Marko was very courteous and made me feel very comfortable about the process. He sent videos, pictures, pictures of pedigree, and ultrasound. All documents were sent and the price was not below the market. There were no red flags. I am simply wanting to get the word out so that others to not fall for the same scam from this kennel.
Please note that I do work so if it takes me some time to respond I apologize.

I went through a similar situation with him last year, its up here on this forum. Everything peachy till he got the money then one excuse after another about shipping, finally got the dog, she looked nothing like the picture he had posted, breeding dates were all wrong, the people at the cargo on this end said they would NEVER have taken her in to ship, she had pups 8 days after she got here!! one lie after another for months about the paperwork. Later I found out just how fast and easy it is to get it from Serbia through some reputable people ive dealt with since then so dont count everyone there out, ill be happy to provide you with some honest businessmen there just message me!!
Mod edit. Mike, I believe your issue with this breeder was resolved and at one stage you wanted your complaint thread removed. If a breeder resolves a problem it is not fair to continue complaining.
