*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

Individuals who are looking to buy a sphynx kitten online are being targeted by scammers. These criminals have created a website called Imperialsphynxkittens.com in order to look legitimate.
They post adverts on community websites advertising kittens.

After you contact the scammers about the kitten, the scammers state that the kitten needs to be transferred to their area and that requires an upfront payment. The prefered payment system is Moneygram, Western Union or Walmart to Walmart but they will accept any form of payment including bitcoin, iTunes vounchers or bank transfer.
Do not think that you can trace them if they use bank transfer as they will often use a “mule” who is not aware they are part of a scam.The down payment is then sent via wire transfer. The scammers then ignore your calls and emails or will contact you and tell you that something else has come up and they need further payment for the delivery of the kitten.

These criminals are happy for you to give them your Credit Card details which they will later use to empty your account. Of course once you have given them your credit card details they will demand that you pay by wire transfer!

Imperialsphynxkittens.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.

  2. They got me for $700. It’s a two part scam. First they send this email when you ask about a kitten:

    Thanks for submitting your inquiry and nice to know that you have interest in our sphinx kitten . He is still available. We are located in Allen TX, We sell each for $500 and shipping is $200. BILO will cost a total of $700 to have her shipped and home delivered.

    He will come along with the following papers: Health Certificate, 1 year health guarantee, Complete medical record, Crate, Playing toys, And a hand guide that will help you on basics of taking good care of the kittens.

    If this is okay by you, then all i need is your complete delivery information which i shall use to establish the paper works, transfer of ownership, sales certificate and also book for same day delivery at the courier service.
    Your full names…………….
    Full home address………….

    Once i received your complete shipping information, i will send you my bank details for you to make the payment via ZELLE, so that i will be able to complete the transfer of ownership, adoption papers and other documents to your name and also pay for the shipping fee of your kitten at the courier service. They will contact you with the full flight and tracking number so that you will know the departure time from here and schedule time of arrival at your local airport as well as home delivery time because you will need to be at home to sign the papers to collect the kitten.

    Thanks

    then this one:

    Okay, got it.. I will have her papers change to your names today. You shall be doing a transaction for $700 as total for us to ship her to you any day of your choice.
    Bellow is our info for payments. You will need to download zelle in your phone and register then send the $700 using our zelle information.

    Acc Name….. Melvin
    MEMO…. Theodor, Holly and Sebastian

    Make sure you put the MEMO as for your name so we know the payment is from you. Send us a screen-shot of the payment once it is complete.

    then you pay them and set up a date to get the cat flown in to you. THis is where the second part of the scam happens. They tell you you need to spend more to ship the animal. This second site is also a scam and also needs to be shut down.

    Then this one:

    Dear customer,
    accept greeting from the Entire Staff of Standard Pet Delivery Agency, We wish to inform you that, your kitten is now ready to take a Flight.
    The kitten has now been checked at the Pets quarantine Department and all the registrations papers, health certificates and passport are correct .
    Due to the poor weather conditions now, you are required to Rent (Hire) a different crate for the safe delivery of your kitten….

    Reasons for a change of Crate !!

    1: The Delivery crate of the kitten have to be changed from a Ventilated crate to an Electronic Thermal Crate . The ventilated crate does not contain potty pet space, water bowl and food cane .

    2: The crate is too small for the relaxation of the kitten on the flight . Due to the above reason, the crate has to be change from a ventilated crate to an Electronic Thermal Crate.

    3: We need a Thermal Electronic crate during this period of shipping because it has a TEMPERATURE REGULATOR ( HEATER ) which will be regulated according to your kitten body temperament there by maintaining a constant body temperature

    From the above reasons,the pets can not be transported in the original crate. The crate has to be changed and we have to use but an Electronic Thermal crate to ensure the safety of the pet on the flight to your location.We have these crates in our agency in different varieties and PD
    (power drive ). Here are the various available Electronic Thermal crates listed below:

    Thermal Electronic crate 088 PD- – – – – – – -$1000
    Thermal Electronic crate 0150 PD ——— $1300
    Thermal Electronic crate 0174 PD——– $1700

    We do not sell the crate to our customers but we offer them for a hire or rental terms to safeguards your pets on flight. The money paid for the rental of the crate will be 95% Fully Refunded Back to you by the delivery agent who will come to deliver your kitten at your delivery address. Since the sender of your kitten sent her using a ventilated crate, when the delivery agent will be doing the delivery at your address, he/she will come along with the Ventilated crate, to do the changes and have your money paid back. We requested that you make a choice from the above list of crates and choose the type of crate you will like your kitten to travel in, for safety.
    Note: The higher the PD, the more safety and guarantee the Pets have on the flight.

    NOTE : Once the kitten arrive your home, 95% of the amount deposited will be refunded back to you upon delivery by the delivery team.

    WE RECEIVED PAYMENT VIA ZEELE

  3. I emailed the “breeder” through the email he provides and he contacted me letting me know it would be a $300 down deposit to reserve my kitten. I eagerly paid the money and then after seeing the reviews it was all a scam, I emailed him back expressing my uncertainty. He said verbatim that I could have my refund back if I was uncomfortable with the situation as he tried to guarantee he was a legitimate breeder. After careful consideration and some investigating, I took him up on the offer and asked for my money back due to “personal reasons.” Low and behold, I discovered the picture of my precious little “Kim” I would be buying was in reality a male kitten bred from a breeder in New York named Sphynx Beauties. He had sent me all his same pictures and videos of “Kim” posted by the actual breeder in September 2019 (currently it is December 2019). Withholding this information from him, I called and asked for my money back again and he said it was impossible for me to get my money back and that I would simply have to pay for the crate and “Kim” would be mine. He would not take no for an answer and began to ignore my calls and texts.

    I have several pieces of information of the breeder (none of which I believe are details of his real identity)
    Name: Melvin Aveyond
    Phone Number: +1-972-853-1756
    Email: imperialsphynxkittenk@gmail.com
    Location: Allen, TX
    Shipping Courier Service used: Pacific Freight Courier Services (Very likely to be a scam given that I spoke to a “representative” and they misinformed me of their main location and did not answer my questions. They said they would return my call with their answers and failed to do so) The shipping company, when I called, said they have shipped kittens with this company several times before but I am positive they are jointly acting together in this horrendous scam, and even the voices of the representative and breeder sound quite alike, almost too alike./ He claims to use Delta or American for the flight.
    For payment, he prefers QuickPay with Zelle by Chase Bank (His zelle is under Aveyondrisha@gmail.com)

    I am certain this site is a scam and I have been a victim of his wrongdoings. He has stooped to an extremely low level to take advantage of eager owners anticipating a new little addition to their family. I firmly believe this site should be shut down immediately.
