Who are Eddiebshcats.com?

EDDIE’S BRITISH SHORT HAIR KITTENS, http://Eddiebshcats.com, www.Eddiebshcats.com

Email used: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below
Phone number used: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below

Physical address used*: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below
*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

Eddiebshcats.com are advertising kittens for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a kitten kitten 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 kitten, 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 “Scam Breeder” will ignore any questions about their affiliation with any clubs or organisations, and questions about the kitten’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The kitten will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new kitten 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.

Eddiebshcats.com will claim to deliver the kitten 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 kitten as well as multiple other fees.

  1. Me and my fiance had been looking at getting a British Shorthair cat and then my fiance discovered this website. It seemed too good to be true and of course it was. They had a cute little kitten named Teddy and when we sent an email asking some questions they wrote back immediately. They wanted payment right away and made everything seem like it had to be done quickly. Next thing we know we went ahead and payed $500 using ZELLE (NEVER USE ZELLE, ONLY USE PAYPAL) and of course then we get an email and call right away from a man using very bad English saying that we needed to “rent” a heated crate for Teddy because of the weather. Renting this create would cost $1500 and they claimed I would be refunded that amount upon delivery of the kitten. They wanted the $1500 to be payed in Wal Mart gift cards and at this point things started feeling really fishy. I called the number provided on their email, 646-902-4836 and got a person who I could barely understand who claimed they “were at church” and that I should text them instead. Looking back, I am sure they claimed they were at church because they wanted to seem like an honest person and they preferred text because their English is so poor. I texted them my concerns and how this entire process had been very unprofessional and I wanted a refund. They wrote back with “woh OMG please do not be saying that.” This made me realize even more that I was not dealing with a professional business. As of writing this we are trying to contact our bank and stop the Zelle transfer, but I just discovered that scammers love to use Zelle because it is bank approved and schmucks like me trust it because of that. I had no idea that there were such things as pet scams and the entire thing makes me sick. The last thing I heard from them was that there really is a cat on the way to my home, despite the fact that I never payed for their crate. Hopefully I can get my $500 back. Others need to be warned. Don’t trust any pet websites without doing research. I learned the hard way.
