Complaint Review: Loveybug Ragdolls
Loveybug Ragdolls, Kristie Schibbelhute Jackson, Lee Ray Jackson Fraudulent Breeder; Took my money and ran! Kim Colorado
On 11/13/2016 I spoke to Kristie Schibbelhute Jackson about buying one of her ragdoll kittens. She had me on the phone for over 3 hours talking about how her kittens are children, she is a "hobby" breeder, she doesn't sell kittens for the money. I told her about my horrible experience with another cat breeder that took my money and I had to settle with my credit card company to get my money back. She was very sympathetic and gained my trust after our lengthy conversation, so I decided to get my ragdoll kitten from her cattery, Loveybug Ragdolls.
I asked her how much her deposits are and she told me whatever I wanted to put down so I gave her $625; half the cost of the kitten. She mentioned that she would give me two cats for the price of one because I was single which I only wanted one kitten. I asked her how she would like to receive the deposit, through PayPal, etc. She told me that she closed her PayPal account due to being hacked so many times and would only accept money if it is wired to her. I wired her husband Lee Ray Jackson $625 where he picked it up from Walmart and text me that he received it.
The following morning I told my mom I put a deposit down for a ragdoll kitten and how excited I was to only find out my mom got me a kitten through a recommend breeder from our vet and she was going to surprise me with it. I text Kristie's husband and sent an email to Kristie to call me asap to let her know what had happened and if I could get my money back. Kristie called me at 11 am the next day (11/14/2016) and told me the money was gone. It had not been even 24 hours since I wired the money to Lee Ray Jackson at 6pm the night before. She said she had to pay for the spayed and neuter which cost about $248 each.
I thought that was weird she had to pay for a spayed and neuter when the kittens were only 5 weeks old at this time PLUS I only wanted one kitten. I asked her wouldn't the other potential buyers have to pay for the spayed and neuter and she said, "yes". Then I asked why would you keep my money if you will be selling all the kittens and the buyers will be paying for the spayed and neuter, where she replied, "oh, if you can wait for a little bit where I can sell the kittens I will return your money in January 2017". I told her I could wait and did but I did keep in touch with her as $625 is a lot of money. I kept tabs on her website and noticed she had sold all the kittens and has a waiting list for Spring 2017.
I started calling her 12/27/2016 to setup a date and time for her to send me my money and never heard from her. Left messages with her children, text her husband and could not leave any voice messages. She finally called me back on January 17, 2017. I asked her when I would receive my money and she told me I had to wait another 63 days for another litter. I do not understand why I have to wait until end of March (4-5 months) for her to sell kittens from another litter when the kitten/litter I was buying had already been born. I told her I have read all the complaints against her about how she is fraud, has stolen money from people, PayPal shut her accounts down for fraud, fake kittens on her website and if you do receive a kitten from her they are feral. She kept telling me I would receive my money but I have to continue to wait.
I am filing a police report for fraud against Kristie Schibbelhute Jackson and her cattery, Loveybug Ragdolls as I have never received my $625 from her nor do I have a kitten. She has had complaints filed on her 2015 and 2016 from people that have gone through the same experience as me where she has taken money and never given a kitten or returned the money. I will also be taking Kristie Schibbelhute Jackson to small claims court.
