Posted classified add for kitten, received email from Maritza with details on shipping animal to the state where they live with long story line of health and family matters.

I informed this person that they must be able to find pets locally in their area and provided them with no further information. Googled their email address to find many other reports about this family asking the same of other pet owners.

AUTHOR: Angel Xiong - (United States of America)

I just received the same exact email from the same exact person interested in my posted ad about a puppy as well.


The way the letter was written just seemed a little fishy to me. Good thing I decided to do more research on it!

One thing added at the end of the email was:

"N:B. Just to let you know that i am a deaf hearing but i can read and write very well. and you can text me as well, (843) 603-1538 looking forward to hearing back from you as soon as possible."

I looked up the phone number and it is listed as a South Carolina #!

This morning I received a very similar story from a Kat Graham as well. I also believe this is a scam so please be on the look out.
