How did a scammer create a video without the kittens?
This scammer would have approached a kitten breeder and demanded proof that the breeder is not a scammer.
We were sent this video by someone who was interested in buying a kitten from a scammer. When she sent a PetScams.com link to the scammer he replied with this video. The scammer used simple video software to add his voice over the top. You can see that the original breeders knee appears for a moment!
It is simple for a breeder to make a personalised video for you and you SHOULD ask. A scammer will get very insulted that you even ask as it is almost impossible for them.
The video dosnt have to be professional and a breeder can use their phone to to make a 2 minute video.
Always ask if you are not sure.
How can I prove I am a genuine breeder?
If you are a breeder, please do not create videos like this. They can be reused by scammers for every victim.
Instead, when creating a video, write the intended buyers email and name on a piece of paper and make sure it is in every shot as you move around.
If you would like to make one for PetScams.com just write on a piece of paper:
“This video was created for Paul Brady @ PetScams.com
It is not to be reused (www.yourwebsite.com)”
Add this to the video of your pet and then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will use it as an example of how a video should be made!
