Scams selling or giving away non-existent animals, often Puppy Scams.
#184724 by Hidayat Thu Dec 19, 2013 6:24 am
So I was searching for kittens which were up for adoption online, and I came across this particular ad.
It says that they were giving 2 munchkin kittens for free, one male, one female.
So of course I contacted the email given, "[email protected]".

So after contacting her and a little discussion, I give her my information for some stuff which was required to be filled in physically from her side. Shortly after, I receive this email.

Hi Hidayat and welcome to Scamwarners,

I'm afraid that you have already been scammed for the $50 that you sent. There are no kittens and the shipping firm is a fake.

Any mention of Cameroon and Western Union/Moneygram in relation to buying kittens (or any other type of pet) is a 100% certain sign that it is a scam.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

But uship.com does exists, but what I want to know is if the email address, [email protected] is legit, or can it be made by anyone?
#184727 by AlanJones Thu Dec 19, 2013 6:51 am
usa.com is a free email service that anyone can set an email address up for (similar to Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo).

The real Uship would write to you from (and receive repies to) an email address on the @uship.com domain.

Scammers will regularly use the identity of legitimate companies to back up their scam.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
#184729 by jolly_roger Thu Dec 19, 2013 7:47 am
The usa.com e-mail address the scammer used probably comes out of mail.com which is a free e-mail provider like yahoo etc. People signing up at the site can gain any address they wish. As the other members have said, you are in contact with a scammer. The best course of action is to simply cease all contact with the scammer. Sorry to say but there never was a little kitten, there isn't and never will be. The scammer only wants you to send money to fleece you. The scammer will play on your emotional feelings for the imaginary kitten.
I wish their was better news to tell you.
#184770 by Mike Wilson Thu Dec 19, 2013 3:07 pm
USHIP.COM is a legitimate company and they had no involvement with this scam.
The legitimate email addresses for uShip will always end with @uship.com

From their website.
uShip is a neutral, third-party marketplace that brings together those with shipping needs and those who can meet those needs. uShip does not have storage facilities and is never in possession of your items.

Requesting payment via a non-bank, instant cash service, such as MoneyGram or Western Union, is a violation of uShip policy.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

I have acquired his phone number. He called me a few minutes ago and I asked him in case I had more "enquiries". He gave me his phone number and said some stuff I didn't understand because of his accent. What shall I do with it?
