SCAM and FRAUD WARNING!
DON’T GET SCAMMED!
See a post with beautiful, hard to find birds? We recommend a few pointers so that you are not separated with your money, and end up with nothing.
- Are these THIER photos lifted from Google or other pages on FaceBook?
- An “image” search for name of a particular species can pull them up.
- Ask for photos of different ages and breeding set up.
- Price too good to be true? You know the answer to that one.
- Ask for references, from people you know. VERIFY.
- Scammers will create false accounts and leave positive reviews for themselves from fellow scammers.
Check out the posters profile in FB. Is this FB person a “new” account, less than 3 months old? If so, beware.
Biggest red flag: Do they want payment via bank transfer? PayPal “broken” for them? Do they only take payment via transfers such as Zelle and Venmo?
There is no buyer protection with bank transfers. You will not get your money back in cases of fraud if you initiated the transaction. Also, don’t use “friends and family” on PayPal if you don’t know and trust them. (legit sellers may ask for additional payment to defer the PayPal fee if using for “goods and services” – not a red flag).
NFSS cannot protect you. We do remove and block verified scammers, but it’s a constant battle.
