Initial search on Craig’s list for a Bengal kitten. Transportation was set up through a company called chirpy tails voyage. Initially ps. $400 for a rehoming fee (this is standard)
Received confirmation with a tracking number. Then got an email stating they needed $845 for insurance to cover pet illness, death, or anything medical mishaps. They requested monies to be sent via moneygram. (Very odd)…I pd the fee cash. Get confirmation the kitten is in route. Then many hou rdd s later get a call stating delivery will be delayed by 4 hours due to a crate change in Mississippi (kitten was coming fro CA). Of codse k complain, delivery was to be at 8pm.
EST. They promise the kitten would be here no later than 9pm. Kitten has not arrived. Its 10:15pm. When i check status via their site, it states "on hold". Nobody will answer the phone or return text messages and I’m out of an kitten and $1245.00 scammer was paid 400.00 via zelle and 845.00 via moneygram
