*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

Individuals who are looking to buy a kitten kitten online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Exoticpawmainecoons.com 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!

Exoticpawmainecoons.com 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.

  1. I was recently scammed out of $800 by kingcoonscattery.com. I live in MD and traveled to Charlotte,NC paid for an overnight stay at a hotel only to drive to a house in the morning and no one was there. The phone number they had been texting me on was conveniently out of service that morning 701-360-5711. I emailed them at [email protected] and he gave me the run around and then provided a Google number 931-452-9372 which he didn’t answer. I filed a police report and learned my lesson the hard way.

  2. I was recently nearly scammed when looking for a Maine coon kitten on Craigslist. Yes, I have heard the warnings, so I went in with my eyes open. But since we had gotten lucky finding a pup at this site, I thought I would at least try. As such when I got a reply saying kittens were $250, it seemed pretty obvious it was too good to be true. I decided to play along. The email address for this individual is [email protected], and he has had multiple ads on Craigslist in Fresno, Ca and Texas in the Dallas and Houston area. He sent me several images of kittens, one of which also appears on the familymainecoonkittens.net site. It is an image of a black and white kitten on a white blanket (or such) with a pink ball. In his message to me, it is identified as a female named Queen. On the site, it is a male named Lee. He gave me a long song and dance about heading out with Doctors Without Borders and that he had hoped originally to take the kittens with him. Right! Anyhow, writing from CA, I finally got his location out of him. It was Baltimore, Maryland. At that point, we ended our conversation as I told him I was unwilling both to travel that far and to have a kitten shipped. If one googles this email address, several hits show up where his ads have been flagged by Craigslist, but craigslist needs to block him entirely!! Is he connected to familymainecoonkittens.net, or is he just pirating their images? I don’t know, but beware!

  3. I just barely escaped paying for kitten at countrymainecoons.com. Deal was too good to be true. 500 for cat, free shipping. Beware! Love this site!

  4. Sparkling Maine Coon Kittens is also a scam. Paid for the kitten with MoneyGram. A couple of hours later I was contacted by Global Logistics and the was told the kitten needed to be transported in a thermal crate that was to be paid for in Walmart Giftcards.
    Requested to pay by credit card as was told that this was not an option because the Global Logostics (also a scam) was in partnership with Walmart.
    Cancel the kitten and have heard back from neither party.

  5. I think they changed their name to bigpawmainecoons.com

    The guy keeps saying he gets off work late like previous comments. My mom paid for this cat, $1100. I don’t know if it’s fake or what? But the guy keeps in contact and says the cat will be in tomorrow? The flight it was supposed to be on got cancelled last night, I’m not sure what to make of it? This was supposed to be a therapy pet for my dad. I’m broken up about this, we don’t have that kind of money to lose or waste…

    • These folks are scammers- I am so sorry for your loss~ I was scammed by them last year~ unfortunately, you will get neither a kitten or your monies back~ please report all the ways that you can to the authorities and any info you have from them ~. Again, I am sorry for your loss

  6. Exoticpawmaincoons has an IP address from Temp, Arizona which I can’t find in my files for now. Always, always check the list of breeders with The Cat Fancier’s Association. Since payment information is confusing, go to a website of a good trusted breeder and see how they have it set up. Make sure the breeder is from the Cat Fancier’s Association. This goes both ways. Plenty of people working hard at scamming good hard-working people

    • Just adding to my comment above about the “American Cat Fanciers Association”. There is a Breeders’ directory that is more useful and detailed. Each breed of cat is listed separately instead of a list of breeders in A-Z Click on Maine Coon Cat. 28 catteries are listed that you can trust.

  7. Hi almost got scammed today. His name Galdwin Levy, same phone address etc.
    dammit ! Got my money back. I figured it out before sending references number for money gram to them. Today is January 8 2019
    Be very aware. Everything looks legit but they obviously don’t speak English. When I text asking for ID all I got back was hi. They were only trying to get partial payment of 450 for deposit. Dammit.

  8. So I just got scammed from elitemainecoons paid for kitten and travel back and forth text and emails from Bruno Conroy supposed owner and then to get no real flight or confirmation. I just saw the exotic paw Mainecoon today and realized I really did scammed and there would be no kitten for me to pick up at the airport tonight !! So http://www.elitemaincoons.com is also scammer website I unfortunately fell for .

  9. I looked into this company as well. I received a quick response at first, but after I informed them that I only wanted to pick up and pay in person the responses stopped. I sent a text questioning their legitimacy and was sent a text saying, “They were good God fearing people”. I tried to set up a pick up time and never received any further messages. Luckily, I never sent them any money. I’m sorry others have been scammed by them.
    *side note: I recently learned that PayPal isn’t a reliable payment method as the payee can revoke the payment up to 7 days later. Please don’t except this payment for a high priced item.

  10. These are two of the same kitten pics as Exotic Paw Maine Coons~ please do not send these people any monies-!! The ## is different, but I am telling you- they are the same folks~ and if you look at Exotic Paws web site, it says 2015-2018 as well~ also, you can look on the CFA/TICA websites and research their “cattery” name to see if they are registered with them~trust me~ they are not

    • We trust you Robin 😉
      ALL websites published here are investigated before we publish warnings.

  11. I had responded to a site called Promainecoons.com and they have been very quick to reply. their site was started in 2015. I didn’t feel comfortable with their method of payment. “Moneygram” I asked if we could use Paypal and the answer was “no” I tried to find out more about them and when looking I came accross this exoctic maine coon site and it is exactly the same as Promainecoons.com Is Promainecoons a legit business but have had their site hacked by these other people??? Would love to know before I do anything stupid..

  12. I was scammed too I paid $1050 two Money Gram money orders and I didn’t get my Maine Coon cat as well. His name is Danny Bryson the phone number he used was 703-574-7498. He has a Russian accent and gets off of “work” at 9:30pm. I have already reported him to Money Gram for them to investigate him. He has changed the name of the business to Pro Maine Coons. I hope they find him and bring justice to all of us. Maybe to get are money back.

  13. Hi, I just reported these people to the fraud services and to the authorities. I realize that this is probably pointless… but I wanted to let others know that they have blocked my number since I confronted them with the legitimacy of this claim. I asked them about this and they refused to answer or acknowledge that they stole from me. I am not surprised, but wanted to let them know that I know they are thieves. Anyone, please learn from my lesson and do not give these people ANY monies in any way…

  14. Wow!! Wish this had been out when I contacted them about a kitten. I do believe I have been scammed… tried everything I knew at the time to make sure this was a legit business. This is the website and information I used… Have contacted the gentleman and asked him to please explain this scam and he, of course, has not responded. I am quite sick to my stomach….. but a lesson hard learned. The name I have for this contact person is Randolph Caeman. I have already sent him $$… was supposed to pick up the kitten on the 17th of September. Still owed him $350. Paid the deposit. Hope this helps to keep others from being scammed.
