Type of a scam Online Purchase
I went online to adopt a Persian kitten. Went to their beautiful, very professional website and I instantly found just the right kitten I have been looking for. I filled in the info sheet, told them which I wanted, and they emailed me back that she was still available. I sent a message back that I would like to talk to them personally and would call. The next day they called me. The telephone ID showed the number was, I believe, from Beaufort, Texas and it was a foreign accented man who was calling. The connection was very bad and took 4 calls to be able to understand him. He did not give me his name but that was my first thought of scam because a know someone in San Antonio who lost her money buying a dog on line and it also was a scam. I emailed a couple of times for info. The responses never clearly answered very simple questions. The kitten was to be shipped to my local airport within 2 days of sending my money by money gram wired transfer. I printed the last instructions from them, so if you would like to have them I would be glad to send it. Second red light. I couldn’t sleep last night trying to decide what to do, so this morning I called the Abilene, Tx. BBB, talked to Steve and found out it was a scam. He gave me your website to report it. You know how upset we women get, so just use your imagination as to what I have to say to him!! Hope he will be put out of business, and I have learned a lot. Thank you for reading.
