We've been informed of another Parrot Scam website, which appears to be using an area code in the Baltimore, USA area
Site goes by the name "Prestige Parrot farm" via the website domain: prestigebirdfarms.com on the following number: +1 (410) 541-6840 / 410-541-6840
The victim has reported that they've fallen victim to the scam and lost $1500.
Note from the victim of this scam:
I've spent 1500.00 on a parrot and paid for shipping 3 days later they wanted more money for a heated container. The parrot never existed.
The site is operating under the usual traits for a scam site.
After checking prestigebirdfarms.com, the domain came into existence on February 10th, 2020 (8 days old at the time of writing) and doesn't have a physical address on the website to check and verify.
There is an old saying: "Seeing is believing", if you can't see it, don't believe it. If it sounds too good to be true, it often is.
To avoid being scammed, never purchase a pet parrot from an online pet shop website or any advert website, no matter how good it sounds. Many pet shops do have an online presence, if they are online, ensure they are a registered business and have a valid business address that you can arrange to visit.
Never make any payment online, even if you are requested to pay a deposit to reserve a pet.
A good indicator if all isn't as it appears is when you try and arrange to view the pet in person, and the seller suddenly makes excuses to avoid visitation.
If you can't see it, don't believe it.
