The seller asked me to pay for part of the cat before being shipped out. I paid 720 dollars. They said they would ship the cat through a pet courier business, and the they would contact me for details. Turns out there a fee that's about a thousand dollars, and it needs to be paid immideatly through Walmart to Walmart, that's when I knew it was a scam. Asked for the businesses physical address to google it, given that it's in Ohio. Looked it up turns out it's just a plain ol house. Tried contacting the seller, never again have I heard from him.

Found a website selling sphynx kittens claiming they were moving out of the country and needed to sell their kittens. All kittens were 30% asking price. Said they only accepted a money gram from walmart. Gave a location of Fairfax Virginia and that the cats would be shipped via plane. Told me if I bought to I could send half the money up front then half on delivery. I typed the phone number into goggle and this report a scam popped up with numerous other people saying the same phone number but different name and different Sphynx kitten website. I did not send money I was lucky to have done my research before hand. I hope others will do the same before sending money. Also said they couldn't accept any other form of payment at this time. Website also says they are members of the online breeders and when I tried looking them up they were not listed under any registered breeders online TICA.

My husband & I have been looking for a sphynx kitten and found one on this site. My husband contacted them and ask for a video of Gasper after going back & forth with emails. They stopped responding. I reached out like I wanted the kitten and they said the kitten was ready to go, let them know if I wanted and they would let me know how the process works. So obviously they can't get footage of kitten!! I reachered and found other people taking about the same kitten "Gasper" & how they were being scammed as well!

I contacted Cherish Sphynx Kittens. saw the website stating moving out of the country and needing to sell the kittens. Wanted me to sent via Western Union 820.00 for the kitten and transportation. I got suspicious of this kind of mode to pay and did not know the name of the person I was dealing with until I said I would be going to the Western Union. Then got this name of Stephan Morrison. I took a minute and looked on the web and found other complaints of selling the same kitten I was going to purchase. Thanks to all that reported. I did not send the money. I did receive several text from Stephan? wanting to know when I was going to Western Union. I did not reply.

I contacted Cherishsphynx.com regarding a kitten named Gasper that they were listing for $700.00. The man on the phone said his name that sounded like Nathan but he spoke very fast and has an accent. He wanted me to send payment via a Walmart to Walmart money transfer immediately, so they could get Gasper to the courier tonight for delivery by 8pm. First, animals need veterinarian certification to fly before a flight can be arranged. This usually takes a couple of days to arrange and I've shipped animals before and I've never heard of shipping costs of only $120. I asked for additional pictures which he did send me. I called my local Walmart and they said once the funds are picked up, there is no trace or recourse as they hand over cash to the individual. I so wanted this to not be a scam as I so wanted Gasper for my pet but everything is pointing to this being a massive scam and the Ohio police officer I spoke to recommends either using Petfinder.com or a certified breeder listed on the TICA.org website. You can also ask to see the registration papers. Each litter has it's own number and can be traced to exact dates of birth and litter number.

A friend of my husband asked me to look for a sphynx kitten for his wife and that's how I came across cherishsphynx.com. I thought it was weird that there was no contact information available and the only way to get any information was by learning your name, phone # and email address. I wrote a message saying that I was interested in purchasing Gasper's, a 12-week old black sphynx kitten. Next day received an email and text message by a guy named Andrew stating that kitten was available for sale and could be shipped as early as by 10 am the following day as long as payment was confirmed.
The next day I received a text message from Andrew from a different number stating that he was having problems with his phone and is now using his wife's phone. I was informed that money for kitten and shipping (additional $120) needed to be sent through the Western Union and I needed to send him reference number and a picture of the receipt. He would arrange the shipping of the kitten and would give me all the shipping information once it's all been arranged.
Since most of the western union in my area open at 9 I suggested to do it online, but he didn't seem to want it that way and offered to look for stores on my are that had a western union that opened earlier.
I was finally able to find one that opened at 7, but when I got to the address there was no western union anywhere to be seen. Looked some more and found one that opened at 8. Came there only to find out hours were changed and they now open at 9. At this point, I knew that it wasn't a coincidence that I wasn't able to send money. I started playing everything out in my head and thinking that this may be a scam. Then asked Andrew if I could send him a money gram instead, to which he replied saying that if I am to state that the reason for sending money is purchase or business he would have to pay tax so I should say that I'm sending money to a friend or family member as a gift.
After that I receive a text message from a third number saying that it's Andrew from Cherish Kittens and that his phone died so he's using his wife's phone now (just as a reminder, s day before, when he contacted me from the second number he told me that was his wife's phone he was using because he was having issues with his). When I googled the third number he used to text me something popped up regarding sphynx kittens and a scam. I tried uploading a picture of Gasper into google search and saw a link to precious-sphynxkittens.net (website suspended). Then came across a post on here and knew that these were the exact same people that were trying to get my money. Here are the cats and their age that they are saying are available for sale as of 2/27/2017:
Grotts 12 weeks $1,300, Erine 12 weeks $800, Trinny 14 weeks $1,100, Elliot 13 weeks $700, Morinsel 11 weeks $900, Aghurii 12 weeks $850, Dorina 13 weeks $1,000, Natasha 13 weeks $850, Suchii 9 weeks $750, Jojo 10 weeks $900, Unique 10 weeks $780, and Gasper 12 weeks $700.
