Emeraldbengals.com are advertising kittens for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a bengal 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 “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 bengal 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.

Emeraldbengals.com will claim to deliver the kitten using a Pet Delivery Service which is actually another scam website they set up in order to steal your money by charging for non existent delivery, pet delivery boxes, pet medication delivery for your kitten as well as multiple other fees. These scammers have even been known to charge for pet food delivery for a non existent pet!

  1. No on the person’s personal info. Zelle has their bank account name and their bank account has the person’s name and info as far as address but they won’t cough it up without suing Zelle and then getting Zelle to turn over in discovery the bank name and then adding the bank to the suit to get them to turn over the personal info.

  2. I honestly don’t understand why these scams aren’t easier to shut down. If my understanding is correct, to utilize Zelle, you need a US bank account. A bank on the receiving end of a Zelle transaction knows exactly who is getting the money. A suspicious transaction report is quite common for bank and needs no qualifying dollar amount to get the attention of the financial crimes people. To me, the fact that more isn’t done simply means they don’t have the desire to.

  3. Did you ever find anymore info on this person or their real whereabouts? Did you report them to the FBI, FTC, Internet Crime Complaint Center, Zelle, their hosting provider?
