Individuals who are looking to buy a macaw parrot online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Okayparots.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!

Okayparots.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.

It was registered using the following details:

Name: (EMAIL ADDRESS NOT KNOWN)
Address:FALSE

These details are correct as of today (March 9, 2020) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.
Okayparots.com was registered using the email address EMAIL ADDRESS NOT KNOWN.
It was registered 1 months and 15 days ago. on January 23, 2020  and expires January 23, 2021.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started January 23, 2020 and does not plan to be using the website after January 23, 2021 as it has only a 1 year registration.

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

    send money via western union to:
    Jonathan Maya Castillo
    5616 W Philips BLVD, Ontario CA 91762
    Or send money via gift cards
    I sent him a final payment of $800 to get parrot out of quarantine at Ohio Customs
    But Western Union cancelled transaction before he got it
    I called Western Union and they said they blocked him – he can no longer use Western Union for any transaction

    These breeders appear to be located in Alabama
