Names used: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below

*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party

The trouble with a purchase like a kitten is that the internet is the most common place to look.
No-one wants to support cruel breeding farms, and most legitimate breeders have websites and also advertise online.
Criminals take advantage of this by creating their own websites and paying for advertising using stolen credit cards.

These scammers have multiple websites which sell other kittens besides kittens. They normally go for the most popular breeds as they can find the most victims.

If you enquire about one of their kittens they will offer you huge discounts. They will even throw in the best kitten food for your new kitten!

Bigpawmainecoons.com will claim to deliver the kitten using a Fake Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, veternary bills, medical insurance for your kitten as well as multiple other fees.

Address: 9450 SW Gemini Dr, No. 63259,

It was registered and 16 days ago on February 6, 2019  and expires February 6, 2020.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started February 6, 2019 and does not plan to be using the website after February 6, 2020 as it has only a 1 year registration.

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

  1. I just got scammed for the price of the cat and the air carrier… [email protected], however I was able to stop payment on the pet insurance. They did scam me for 2800.
    They claimed to be from Thunder Bay Ontario and could hardly speak english. I found out their area code they were using is out of Ohio, but I expect this is scam out of India.
    I am going to use all my resources to find these people and to bring them to justice or street justice.

  2. I started a conversation with them and it very quickly shifted to how to reserve by kitten by getting the money to them. They are now claiming to be in LA. I started by asking the name of the parents of the kitten I was interested in, they sent me photos of two cats that were very obviously both male! I then replied asking for health certificates for the tests they say they do and have not received any contact back.

    Thank you for running this website. I’m glad I figured it out early. Ask LOTS of questions. Makes me nervous when the first thing someone talks about is how I can get my money to them.

  3. Good deal! It does look like this one is shut down. Very frustrating after being scammed ourselves and watching it happen to others on here. Fbi local, and state police seem not to care. This web page is a great tool. Unfortunately there are many others and these people will be back under another name. Remember when buying any dog or cat, go see the litter and meet the breeder, then leave the deposit! Good work let scams community!

  4. We contacted this website too , we received text message from 703-951-6055 that kitten ? we interest is available. We told him we can pick it up . He said ok told us we can come Saturday or Sunday gave us Washington DC address that was mentioned here . He said cash only . I searched this address to make sure it’s existing address and saw that this house was purchased recently for 2 million dollars. That confused me a little but , I wasn’t worry because he said cash is ok . Today I wanted to ask about one more kitten and went to same website and noticed it’s suspended and also this post . We messaged him if he can send us video of kitten no response. Thanks to people for creating this page .

  9. Unfortunately Melissa we had a very similar situation to yours to the tune of 1100.00. Western union doesn’t care. And we filed a complaint with this fbi and never got a response, so they really don’t care either. It’s a shame these people are still doing this under bigpawmainecoon since january!

  10. Unfortunately my husband and I saw this too late after we we were scammed to of 1100$ they tried to get us to wire more money to us and i already had been questioning things. I am glad you posted this! I don’t want other people to get taken advantage like we did we had just lost our cat of 12 years to cancer and obviously were heartbroken while yes i am pissed about the money i am more upset that they are taking advantage and lying to people and then when confronted they say they are godly people and would never do that… well they do! So be warned thanks for posting also sorry to everyone who was affected by these people

  11. We live very close nearby to this location and I just emailed them asking to come and see the available kittens. This should be interesting as we are searching for one but this screams fraud the moment I looked at their site.

  12. To whom it may concern:

    The domain Bigpawmainecoons.com is acting fraudulently.
    You can view the domain here http://Bigpawmainecoons.com and http://bigpawmainecoons.com/contact.html
    It has also been posted as a Scam Website on https://petscams.com//?s=Bigpawmainecoons.com

    We paid $850.00 via Western Union to “EndievMetasantos”.
    From his email:

    “1)Receiver’s First Name: ENDIEV
    Last Name: METOSANTOS
    2)City: Alexandria,
    3)Address: 2903 Dumas St Alexandria, VA 22306, USA
    4)Amount: $850
    5)Tel: (703) 951-6055
    Postal code is 22306”

    The owner of 2903 Dumas said he has no idea about Maine Coon Cats, and Endiev Metosantos did not show up for delivery of a cat.

    Western Union where we filed a complaint this week, said that the money was picked up in Washington DC.
