Kitten Scam - Sphynxs (HairlessCats)


I was almost caught by this scammer - Nicole Alma Megan. Look out for her!!!!!! She placed adds on OLX, JUNKMAIL & GUMTREE stating that she sells Sphynx kittens - and other breeds. She placed different names, different cell numbers and fake home addresses and regions of available kittens on all her adds! She wanted to sell me a kitten Scooby for R2000.00. She mailed me pictures of him and 4 other beautiful cats. BUT, when the location of the cat suddenly changed, I knew it was a scam.
The add said the kitten is in JHB, but her e-mail said she is in CT. I send an e-mail back saying I want to buy locally instead. Next thing she begs for the money, wants you to deposit it, she can courier the cat and and and....
NEVER EVER PAY MONEY UPFRONT FOR ANYTHING BOUGHT IN SA ONLINE!!!! Product first, then payment.
# Luckily before I wanted to buy a cat, I looked up Kitten Scan/Sphynx Scam on google and found loads of stories. Be careful people!!!!

    @AngryKitty - rather try to adopt - there are so many beautiful animals needing homes......Facebook has many rescue organisations that can assist you in finding you a Sphynx kitten or even an older juvenile perhaps. Far better to get a rescue and give it a chance for a happy life and home.

    Please report this person to the SPCA for them to investigate or Animal Anti Cruelty League. If she does have kittens she is using them as a breeding farm and probably keeps them in terrible conditions as well. Report her and also post to Facebook and share widely with her details.

    PISSEDOFF, she almost had me too! Luckily I knew not to pay money upfront. Sorry for your loss. It just pisses me off, because I really want a Sphynx kitten, but there are so many scammers out there, where to find a true breeder...
