  1. I just got scammed by him for 300
    Unfortunately, I am a trusting person (stupid)
    The site is agro aviary.

    • These are professional criminals.
      They have perfected their scamming techniques just for this scam. You should not feel stupid just because you do not deal with criminals every day!
      I would recommend reporting this to This is the part of the FBI that deals with cyber crime. You can file a complaint here
      You can also file a complaint with the company you transferred the money with. I am not sure which one was used to steal from you but the main ones are listed here

      Can you also let us know the full domain for “argo aviary”
      Thank you

  2. I had several questions for them: cheap price, sending the parrot with cage and toys, and the most intriguing part was that they could send the bird right away. Got a little too suspicious. For the price he said it was a one time event of their website. I asked for photos: he sent me five of the parrot, which is by the way on the endangered species list and can thus not be shipped from out of state. Things didn’t add up. They supposedly ship from VA. Oh and he never gave me his name.

    • I am glad you did not get past step one

      • Step One – Buy a pet – Scammed out of cost of pet
      • Step Two – Pay for shipping – This will cost more than the cost of the pet!
      • Step Three – Pay for a special shipping container – Scammed some more
      • Step Four – Blackmailed by the “shipper” because they realise the bird is endangered
      • Step Five – Legal action threatened by “the police” probably using a gmail address
  3. I found a company named agro aviary which uses this phone number. They sell pet parrots cheap. But there are no address or names on the web site. They requested payments via western union. When I requested payment via Pay Pal they stopped communicating.
