*Scammers use a physical address to appear more legitimate. The address will have no connection to the actual scam as they will be an innocent third  party

Dkgres.com are advertising parrots for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a african grey parrot online.
In the first email, the scammer will ask all the right questions, putting you through the motions to prove your suitability: how would we care for our parrot, how would we train him, how often would he be alone?

Then the fraudsters emails will get shorter and normally keep to sms messages. This is because the first email is a template where as you are now dealing with the actual scammer.

The “breeder” will ignore any questions about their affiliation with any clubs or organisations, and questions about the parrot’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The parrot will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new african grey they will eventually agree. It makes no difference to them if you travel for 4 hours because they are not at the address they claim to be.

Dkgres.com will claim to deliver the parrot using a Fraudulent 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. I found a website online for a miniature pig which has been my dream pet since I was in high school. I found the website under hanapigs.com, made an inquiry, and was immediately contacted by text. Seller seemed completely educated, asked for a deposit of $300. After talking with him all day and receiving a sales contract for the pig we had chosen, I sent him a deposit for $100. Big mistake. I asked a million questions and after sending the deposit, realized he was giving me botched information. He went by the name of Tambe M Kone or Tambe M Jones and under the sales contract, the website had another name under susipig.com. The two websites were exactly the same. I did research and found out both websites had only been up and running for 18 days. He sent me pictures and videos. After my husband decided against the piggy because I had developed such anxiety, I said I wanted my deposit of $100 back. He agreed… and then disappeared. No response. No deposit. This guy is a piece of shit. Excuse my French. Watch out for pet scams, read into every detail, and always… ALWAYS trust your gut. It kills me to know that there are such evil people out there using such innocent and loved pets to steal money form hard working people. I hope this guy gets caught soon and his ass thrown in jail.

  2. Thank you for this information. I was a few steps away from purchasing a grey from tiniti and we have a lot of back and forth text. He said they’re from Georgia. I asked him about the snow. ( Georgia just got about a foot). He says no snow. So I googled and found this.
    +1 (478) 239-4107 That was the cell they used. I sent them this website and never heard back.

    • I am so glad that you posted them I was looking for an African Grey online and a Dallas pet store referred them to me. http://www.minaparrots.com the page was not well put together and every time i emailed them to ask questions i felt like their answers where vague. The Dallas pet store was charging $4000 and they were selling 5 month old males for $650 plus free out of state shipping. I wondered why there was a huge price difference. I couldn’t find anything online about the company put when i put in their cell (478) 239-4107 i found your page. Thanks for saving me $650 dollars.

  3. I have been trying to get an African Grey..i came across this website. They texted me from this number (770) 800-6532 and wanted me to pay with something called Zelle. I’m glad I looked them up. This is the second I have come across just trying to steal money from me and actually don’t have parrots at all. Thank you

  4. Omg I’m so sorry you all had to go through all of that. I do appreciate you taking the time to report this and taking action. I myself just finished sending my information just to ask the question where are you located. I would not expect the bird to be shipped due to stress when I can pick up. After carefully reading the testimonies on their site I felt something was sketchy. The grammar was off and some spelling as if it were the same person writing all the testimonies. As soon as I typed them in search to begin researching you guys popped up. THANKS SO MUCH for saving us from what could have ended up a nightmare. Think we will find a place we can physically walk in and view the birds in person.

  5. This company just stole $2500 from my elderly parents. Then had the balls to ask them for an additional 1800 to be paid in 2 separate western union transactions for 900. I was able to stop the addition 1800 from being collected by the scumbags. When we looked up the address for the “company” it was a hospital in Georgia. All this had occurred today and we will be filing police reports and turning over copies of all the emails. Dont be scammed by them. They tell you your bird was shipped then tell you it has been confiscated at the airport by TSA and that they need the 1800 to get it out and on the way to you. These people are evil and I hope they burn in hell for whT they did to my parents! I will update with copies of the emails with # when i get them.
