Albino Ferret Lovers Page on Facebook---A SCAM!!!!!!! List of Other Fake Facebook Pages Albino Ferret Lovers (the one that got me) Adorable Ferret for Sale Near Me Something About Rare Ferrets for Sale at Great Prices (It is In Russian) Exotic Ferrets for Adoption Adorable Ferrets for Adoption Near Me Adorable Ferret Pets for Sale Near Me Very Cute Ferret Pets for Sale in My Area Ferret Pets for Sale Scammed $340 for Baby Ferrets I THOUGHT I was buying...it seemed legitimate....AT FIRST
I responded to an ad on Facebook for someone who was selling baby ferrets. The name of the Facebook page was Albino Ferret Lovers (NOT to be confused with Albino Ferret Lovers and Owners, which is a legitimate page).
After the payment was made I was told that I would get an email with shipping details. I received an email from a place that tuned out to be a fake shipping company called Nezah Global Shipping. Nezah Global Shipping had their own webpage. The site for Nezah Global Shipping appeared at first glance ap to be legitimate. When I received the invoice/shipping info., it listed my information as the recipient, but did not list any physical address for the seller. All it listed for the seller was a name (probably not a real name), that it was sent from Virginia (again, probably a lie), and the same number I was given to text for information, 540-999-5085. The ad on Facebook listed a phone number to text, but I never actually spoke to anyone. The text I got from the fake shipper came from the following number, 262-872-0820.
After I received the fake shipping information I received a text message from the shipper (who appeared and sounded just like the seller) demanding $600 for "cargo insurance" ($300 per ferret) or they could not deliver the ferrets. The whole transaction went downhill from there.
I have reported this fraud to my financial institutions (the “transaction” involved two banks, however, since I reported the fake Albino Ferret Lovers page, I have found multiple other Facebook pages that appear to be the same individual(s). Fake Facebook pages with names like ferrets for Adoption Near Me and Ferret Pets for sale. I have included a long list of some of the emails that are involved below. Some of the pictures on the page that scammed me, Albino Ferret Lovers, and pictures used on these other pages, were exactly the same. I have a plethora of information for anyone that might be able to help me (e.g. the police, Attorney General, etc…), but getting help is very difficult. And it is likely that these jerks are not even in the United States where I live and likely using disposable burner phones. However, there need to be stopped so they will not continue to keep scam people and steal hard earned money from people who had to work for it..
Facebook makes this type of activity VERY difficult to report. There is no simple dedicated site on Facebook, phone number, or even a physical address to report this fraud being committed on their site. And when I went on the Albino Ferret Lovers page letting people know that it was a scam, I had my Facebook account disabled and I was not the only one. I noticed others on the site who complained that when they commented on the fraud being committed by these people that they were reported too. In the meantime innocent people are being scammed and its almost like Facebook is allowing them to get away with it. You go on the page and comments on the illicit activity that these people are involved in, but YOU get blocked for reporting it and Facebook allows these scumbags to keep stealing from people.
I have learned to really hate Facebook after this.
Here is a list of some of the other sites that appear to be from the same individual(s) who are scamming people with the "ferret scam" on Facebook:
