Type of a scam Online Purchase
Find the website searching online for Birds for sale. Found a website called greys-macaws.com, they seem very friendly had beautiful pictures of young birds choices between African Greys and different kinds of macaws at different ages. They have beautiful pictures of 4 month old African Grey is a male and a female to purchase one you had to pay $750 to purchase both you paid $850. Talk to them on the phone they seem very nice rub lots of Raving reviews about how good they are decided to purchase the African Greys both the male and the female there were to be flown out to me within 48 to 72 hours when I received the shipping paperwork the supposed to shippers wanted another $955 they claimed that the crates provided by the breeder was insufficient and they needed insurance they also claim that I would get $905 back. When I called or texted I mean the man that I had been working with he said he did not know that the rules have changed for the shipping crate and also offered to pay $200 towards the shipping of the birds the problem was that they wanted me the shippers wanted me to Western Union them the money and if anybody asks why I was sending so much money they told me to lie because of problems with scams that Western Union or MoneyGram would probably not accept the money. When I ask golde the man that I had been working with what was happening he again assured me that I would get $905 back and that everything would be ok I asked for the phone number of the animal shipping company that he was using it was not on the PDF that was sent to me about the birds shipping details nor was there a phone number he would not give me the phone number I tried finding this suppose it'd animal shipping company on the internet they did not exist I am now out $850 and too baby African greys please do not fall for this scam that will break your heart the names of the people are I'm sure they'll change the website. What made me believe that this was not a scam at the beginning was they gave me a bank account number and routing number to deposit money directly into a bank account it was the animal Shipping Company wanting me to lie to Western Union. that was $850 too late.
