Andrea sold me a kitten that she stated was a purebred mainecoon kitten for 450.00$. She sent me the pictures of the alleged parents.
She seemed believable and trustworthy, yet something felt off after I left the home with the kitten as I realized she never gave me her name or address (only a ‘current location’ for GPS). I did internet research found her name, address, and also found that there were other people in the area that have been scammed by Andrea.
I also did a google search of the picture she sent me of the mother, and found that the picture of the mother is a professional picture that is on a variety of websites.
When I asked for the information she promised regarding the kitten’s vet’s contact information, to speak with her grandparents-or receive the father’s paperwork showing he is purebred (the grandparents were the alleged breeders), and when I asked for accurate information regarding the kitten’s parents Andrea did not respond.
She also did not answer my phone calls when I attempted to call her a couple of times on 12/17. Andrea agreed to refund the money via text, but then said she’d only refund part of it (100$), and then said she had spent 350$ this morning and that I’d have to wait for the refund.
There was a lot of back and forth if that makes sense. I spoke with her parents regarding the matter as well. Andrea then claimed that because I posted information regarding the kitten scam on craigslist that she would no longer refund me the money.
