Hi SF Buzz,

I had the same issue and then I raised a case with salesforce, they mentioned that it's know issue from their side, here is the reply from them -

In some cases, if duplicate rules are set for an alert to show when potential duplicates are found, users will always be blocked from saving records and will not see a list of possible duplicates. Examples of this include the following.

1. When records are added using the data import tools.
2. When a person account is converted to a business account (and the newly created business account matches existing business accounts).
3. When records are added or edited using Salesforce APIs.
