Scam Description

This so call cattery sells kittens on line, seams all legit, we sent them money to purchase a kitten through zelle, once we sent them the money they said we has to rent an electrical crate and that as soon as the kitten was delivered we would receive our 985.00 back for the rental. They sent us a confirmation number so we can track the kitten through another bogus shipping company called express showing carrier. When we saw that the confirmation number wasn’t being found we got in touch with them and they kept reassuring us that the kitten would get delivered in 2 days, we then for an email saying that the kitten needed health insurance and that it would cost 900.00 that would also be refundable. We informed this so call company asked for our money back for the kitten and crate since they were coming up with all these extra unnecessary charges that are not on the websit. We were suppose to have the kitten by Monday 5-2-22, it is now Wednesday 5-4-22, no kitten and no refund and they are ignoring my calls
