Submission from Susan
Hello – last night I posted an ad on craigslist about finding a new kitten and was ALMOST scammed. There is someone who claims to have a kitten and if you send them $100. they will send you the cat, even after you tell them you live in another state. They also are using one of your Maine Coon photos to lure people in. I just thought you should know.
I have a complaint in to craigslist and waiting to hear from them. I do have the original emails if you would like that as I’m sure they are violating copyright.
I feel stupid but I’m glad I saw the google images of the cat on the black paw prints on the wicker chair? That’s the one that’s being used, at least on me ~ your photos are amazing and it makes me sick to think someone is lying to get someone to send them money.
Response from Michael
Thanks a lot for telling me about this. I would like you to leave a comment and provide some more information such as the emails.
I have to ask you to do this as I don’t have your email address. I thought Craigslist had stopped this sort of thing happening. Apparently not.
If you could show me the picture you are referring to that would be great too.
I have published your submission as a warning to others.
