Spikehedgies.com are advertising Exotic Pets for sale online. They use stolen credit cards and invent identities to defraud people shopping for a exotic pet Exotic Pet 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 Exotic Pet, 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 Exotic Pet’s parents. The main focus now is convincing you to pay as soon as possible. The Exotic Pet will be shipped to you by the scammers perferred delivery company. There is no other option. If you insist on picking up your new exotic pet 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.
Spikehedgies.com will claim to deliver the Exotic Pet 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 Exotic Pet as well as multiple other fees. These scammers have even been known to charge for pet food delivery for a non existent pet!
