Anti Scam Facilities And Scam Alerts - Scams affecting cat breeders and buyers in the UK

We do have special scam busting facilities on KittenList (which stop the majority of suspicious emails getting through)..however, even we are not perfect! Sometimes one may slip through the net and, if it does, it is usually reported to us and we list it here.

We do not tolerate our facilities being used to solicit any form of goods or services to you either - this is also an abuse of our site and should be reported!


Remember! It really is this simple to spot the two best selling pet scams!..

Western Union money transfer payment +
Delivery of cat/kitten =
African (Cameroon) Pet Courier scam. Find out more
Posted cheque in excess of the asking price of your cat/kitten =
The Criminal Cashback scam. Find out more


Please read our 'Staying Safe With KittenList' page Here for helpful advice to avoid online scams.

You'll also find useful 'Anti Scam' links at the bottom of this page.



In more than 10 years we are only aware of one single scam occurrence ever having taken place on KittenList. More often than not our safeguards catch them before it can take place - and we list them here! We believe the following enquiries below to be non genuine (Scam attempts) and, if they contact you, you should NOT respond to any of their communications.

We keep server IP logs of each scam attempt. These can be requested by official methods.
