The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about an online breeding company targeting consumers interested in owning special breeds of cats.
Reports have been received of a fraudulent business operating under the name Hairless Kittens Home claiming an Amarillo address. Consumer complaints state that inquiries made through the website www.hairlesskittenshome.com lead to a request for Western Union payments.
Once the payment is made, shipping arrangements are changed and the consumer is asked to send more money to rectify an issue with the shipment. The shipment never arrives and attempts to contact the business go unanswered.
The BBB warns consumers to be aware of online pet scams. Don’t buy a pet without seeing it in person. Never pay a stranger with a money order or through Western Union. Always use a credit card in case you need to dispute the charges and research prices for the breed you are interested in.
