Affablebirds.com is not a parrot breeders website and this is not a review of Affablebirds.com. This is a warning.

They claims to sell parrots but the domain was actually created by criminals in order to defraud people wanting to buy a african grey.
Once you express interest in buying one of the parrots the scammer will send you a template email telling you a lot of details about the parrot as well as information on the best parrot food to use, and how you should take care of your new parrot.

They will even send you “proof” by showing you pictures they have stolen off the internet of african grey parrots.

Affablebirds.com will claim to deliver the parrot using a Fraudulent Delivery company.
The “delivery company” is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, an air conditioned travel crate, medical insurance for your parrot as well as multiple other fees.

It was registered using the following details:

These details are correct as of today (August 15, 2020) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.

It was registered 3 months and 11 days ago. on May 4, 2020  and expires May 4, 2021.

Would you trust these people enough to pay them money?

  1. Fraudulent site. Almost took 1390.00 from my son and tried to get me to pay additional 880.00 for some climate controlled pet carrier after I already paid for bird and shipping. Fortunately transaction occured over a weekend and my bank was able to cancel and recall funds before it was picked up in bangalor india by a Silva Kumar. When I threatened to take action against them. They threatened me and my family if I were to proceed. Stay away from this scam site.
