Who are Russianbluescattery.com?

Our Kittens – Russian Blues Cattery

Russian Blues Cattery, http://Russianbluescattery.com, www.Russianbluescattery.com

Email used: merwald@russianbluescattery.com
Phone number used: NOT KNOWN, Please add to comments below
Names 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

Russianbluescattery.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 “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.

Russianbluescattery.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.

It was registered using the following details:

Name: WhoisGuard Protected (fa3e8b41f48046c7a6c5ec1097794b3b.protect@whoisguard.com)
Address: P.O. Box 0823-03411,

These details are correct as of today (May 26, 2018) but the name and address could possibly belong to an innocent third party if the domain was registered using a stolen credit card.

It was registered 3 months and 3 days ago on February 23, 2018  and expires February 23, 2019.

To look at it another way, this “company” only started February 23, 2018 and does not plan to be using the website after February 23, 2019 as it has only a 1 year registration.

  1. Now saying they are located in LA, California. Will only take Western Union or money gram. Saying cats are 1/2 price bc they are expecting another litter. Free shipping bc they have discount vouchers until 9/25/18.
    Notice no address on site & misspelled words. Phone number ‭(510) 766-0984‬. I almost just ordered “Kathy”.

  2. These people are in fact scammers. I fell for it myself but caught onto it while in the middle of transactions. Here are names, emails, phone numbers, and locations that they used with me for transactions and exchanges.

    Do not fall for this company. They will impersonate people, shipping companies such as FedEx, and will have fake “requirements” from made up departments in order to get more cash. If anyone else has dealt with these criminals then please submit full incident reports and turn your information over to the authorities. Thanks.

    • Thank you for this!
      Because fedex-couriers.com is a direct clone on a genuine company we should get it shut down quickly.

  3. I KNEW IT! I made an inquiry this weekend because of their posting and the more and more I emailed with them the more fishy it got. Now they are claiming to be located in Keyeville, CA. They were only willing to communicate with me via email, they demanded the deposit without any further information on their location or the kitten and even the way that they worded their emails was strange. Thank goodness for your website!!

  4. Thank you for this report!! I, too, almost fell victim.

    Everything seemed very legit until the Western Union name and location did not match the email name and location where the kittens were. So, sad, that life has come to this.

    Phone number used 510-766-0984
    Location of kittens: Keysville, VA
    Location of western union: Los Angeles, CA

  5. I gave them my name, address, phone number, name of my vet, and other personal information to prove I was a good pet parent, then right when I was about to buy both Kathy and Kara, I was asked to wire the money via Western Union. My heart sank. I was so excited to get my kitties, then felt stupid and violated. Glad my gut feelings were corroborated via this report. They told me they were in Los Angeles and that the kittens would ship from LA to KY. They also told me they had a “free shipping” coupon that would cover shipping costs if I bought them before the coupon expired. Their emails were broken English and poor grammar. Do not send money to these con artists.
