Individuals who are looking to buy a kitten kitten online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Elegantmainecoon.net in order to look legitimate.
They post adverts on community websites advertising kittens.

After you contact the scammers about the kitten, the scammers state that the kitten needs to be transferred to their area and that requires an upfront payment. The prefered payment system is Moneygram, Western Union or Walmart to Walmart but they will accept any form of payment including bitcoin, iTunes vounchers or bank transfer.
Do not think that you can trace them if they use bank transfer as they will often use a “mule” who is not aware they are part of a scam.The down payment is then sent via wire transfer. The scammers then ignore your calls and emails or will contact you and tell you that something else has come up and they need further payment for the delivery of the kitten.

These criminals are happy for you to give them your Credit Card details which they will later use to empty your account. Of course once you have given them your credit card details they will demand that you pay by wire transfer!


Elegantmainecoon.net will claim to deliver the kitten using a Scam Delivery company which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, a air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your kitten as well as multiple other fees.

These details are correct as of today (February 16, 2019) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.

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

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

  1. Could be both are frauds. The one with the .com has a domain but the phone number shown is not a working number.

  2. No. Look again. The one you mentioned is legitimate. The scam email is the one with the Gmail address.

  3. Yes! I’m 99% sure they are. I’m not 100% sure Because I never sent the money. But they sent me all there information to send the money and I was intrested. They mentioned being a Christian family and they felt a good connection with me and blah blah. But they said a pure bread was 300$ and they would ship it to me for free.. they are in Texas and I’m in Wisconsin.. seems odd. I told them I didn’t feel comfortable sending money and they don’t have a Facebook or Instagram page. It all sounded good and I hope everyone is smart enough to not buy from them.
