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!

Promainecoons.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.

  1. The name I was given was Richard Humphrey. I filed a police report, but they will probably never catch them. I did lose $400 sending them a deposit.

  2. I tried to purchase a kitten. They refused to allow me to come visit, could not provide name of vet and would only deliver kitten after full payment via money gram. Would not allow me to pick up cat or pay in person. Drove to address- it’s not theirs and name given is a fake. They discontinued communication when I asked questions. Phone number does not work.
