Individuals who are looking to buy a african grey parrot online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Macawparroteggsforsale.com in order to look legitimate.
They post adverts on community websites advertising parrots.

After you contact the scammers about the parrot, the scammers state that the parrot 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 parrot.

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!

Macawparroteggsforsale.com will claim to deliver the parrot 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 parrot as well as multiple other fees.

  1. Hi, found their website and thought the prices were amazing. But, was a bit concerned when I saw the type of payments they accepted one including CashApp. The issue I had, was that the CashApp in the invoice $Quality127 can’t be found, which tells me it was disabled by the company. Most likely, because of fraud cases. I called the number on the invoice: (903) 392-0861 and the guy didn’t answer like a business number. I told him I just placed the order, and wanted to send the money but the CashApp can’t be found? He said the account isn’t working, then told me to send the money to $prisonbreak2020 which I just knew wasn’t a good sign. He then told me to send a screenshot of the payment to him once it was made. I replied back, that he should have the payment and can take his own screenshot. I didn’t send the payment, because two many red flags were coming up.
