Type of a scam Online Purchase
The scammer advertised a Siamese female kitten for sale and quoted $400.00 plus $150.00 for shipping.
I purchased the kitten via on line banking program Zelle and the next day Gordon Bianca wrote that he had shipping information and provided me with a tracking # 94750979 with a company called Trans Express. Then the company, Trans express emailed me the day of shipment (3-24-21 that I had to pay an additional $950.00 for insurance in order for the kitten to be shipped. Assuring me that that amount would be refundable upon delivery of kitten. I paid it and then late that night I received another email saying that the flight was delayed and she would arrive ton3-24-21 at 11am. That morning Trans Express notified me that I needed to pay an additional $980.00 for a heated crate. I refused and never received my kitten or heard from them and still to this day they will not answer my emails or phone messages
