I was scammed by www.ryleighsragdollkittens.com
The email they use to contact their “customers” RAGDOLLS HOME <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The email they use to have an account on ZELLE: email@example.com Under: Ryleigh Figueroa and Michael
Maybe you can also add the freight company which is in the scam as well. They wanted to get an additional $1,000 for an electrical thermal crate due to the young age of the kitten.

I was scammed by www.leeragdoll.com
I wish I had seen your web site before connecting with https://leeragdoll.com/. Unfortunately, I was slow to recognize the scam and they did get some money from me before I figured it out. It was your web site that helped me confirm the scam. I wish there was a way to remove them from the internet! Just wanted to say thanks for having that information available. I wish I had seen it first.
I used Zelle…. Note to self….. NEVER use a person to person money transfer to someone you are not totally sure who they are and or know personally … EVER!!!! They will make arrangements of other forms of payments such as American express gift card. I don’t know why that didn’t set of my Scam senses! So if you have to pay any reseller by person to person transfer and you don’t personally know them, RUN.!
These people now are telling me they will hold my money for 30 days per the contract which is null and void as they never intended to send me a kitten. I am still so mad I can’t see straight. They have all but acknowledged the scam and won’t refund my money. I wish there was a way I could get law enforcement on their doorstep, but I fear that doorstep is not in the US.
I was wondering how you SEO your website? Getting it to show up when someone types in ragdoll kittens for sale would be great. Did I mention I am an unhappy camper right now? Thanks for having that list. If I hadn’t checked and found your site they would have scammed me out of all the money they were asking for. I just wish I had thought about the possibility of cat breeders scam before I jumped in. I hate learning hard lessons.
These guys are good… the web site is nice, the contract is official looking. Very easy to be at ease when your hoping to get that special kitten. Its when the payment options pop up that one should beware. Unfortunately it took me a step to long to figure it out. As always, if it sounds to good, it probably is…. Buyer beware! One more thing… check the timestamp on any correspondence. These guys were responding to email at hours between midnight and 6 am. Another red flag.”
How to Spot a Pet Scammer
Here’s the latest – Precious Ragdolls using my photo of Charlie, Trigg and me that’s in the footer of our website. I am not married and have never been – and they stole the content below the photo from another breeder’s website.
Often times, they will steal from a Maine Coon breeder’s website and then just replace “Maine Coon” with “Ragdoll”. You can always copy and paste a few sentences of the content and put it between ” ” in Google’s search bar to see where else it appears on the web.
You can tell they stole it from Ragdolls Above All.
Update September 19, 2020
Kimberly Ragdolls is a fraudulent breeder website
“I’m very appreciative of you posting fraudulent breeder websites. I have been corresponding with a man using the name Kimberly Ragdolls. He is offering to sell me a beautiful female kitten for $350, including shipping from Pennsylvania to Arizona. I asked him to forward a copy of his contract. He appeared to change the name of the breeder at the Beginning of the contract, but erroneously left the name of Cristar Ragdoll Cattery at the bottom. He has now ceased corresponding with me once I questioned him on it. I wanted you to have the new name he is operating under so you can list it also.
Seems this guy has had several fb pages. They don’t have a website this time – just their Facebook page. But they are seeking out buyers on the American Ragdolls fb page. They replied to a post earlier today listing their info and pictures of kittens. I reached out to them as I am currently looking for a female. I just looked back on fb and it appears they deleted their comments with their info. But their fb page was Kimberlyragdoll kittens.
I have messed with this guy all afternoon questioning him. I sent him screenshots of all the business names he has gone by and all the stories buyers have reported about him. He claims it is just fraudulent buyers trying to give him a bad name. He’s definitely a fraud. He went from messaging me on Facebook messenger, to texting me, to using WhatsApp. I questioned him why he kept switching and he said to make sure I was legit! Lol! Thanks for looking out for buyers! I appreciate it!”
Update September 2, 2020
RAGDOLL CATTERY HOME is another Ragdoll breeder scam website.
Paula wrote in, “Unfortunately my 13 yr old rag doll passed Suddenly recently and we are devastated I began looking right away for another rag doll and just get totally conned. I went to https://ragdollcatterys.com/ and unfortunately they took my money (cash accounts only which was a red flag) promised to ship my 11-week kitten they named Cucu, then hours before her due time (Monday September 1st at noon) they then asked for more money for another shot and $650 for a temperature controlled crate. The kitten was to be delivered in a crate anyway They agreed to pay for her shot but still wanted $650 for the crate She was supposed to be on a flight at the time they requested this so I knew it wasn’t right. They sent me shipping confirmation for the flight but trying to google the company showed no such company.
We were so upset at being conned so easily and I don’t know how to get their name out there to warn other innocent pet lovers so it doesn’t happen to them. If you can possibly add this company to your warning list of bad breeders that would be great. Their website and shipping contract looked so real too. If you know a good breeder in Southern California who has rag dolls for pets and I’m not interested in showing or breeding please can you let me know. please post to try to prevent others from being scammed by them!”
Update August 3, 2020
Supreme Ragdolls Home! is another Ragdoll kitten scam website.
Update July 23, 2020
Cristar Ragdoll Cattery is another Ragdoll Breeder Kitten Scam website
UPDATE – July 4, 2020
Yet another Ragdoll breeder scam / fraudulent website – Ragdoll Kitty Shop – Ragdoll Pet Shop
UPDATE – June 28, 2020
Another Ragdoll breeder scam / fraud – Premium Ragdolls.
Doing the same as this one below, but using a photo of my sister with our parents’ cats on their Premium Ragdolls Cattery’s fake and fraudulent website:
How To Spot A Ragdoll Cattery Scam Website
Another scammer website using a photo of my sister and me with my parents’ Ragdoll cats. Wish there was a way to prosecute these people. Here was another one – Jasmine Ragdoll Kitten – Ragdoll Breeder SCAM.
These are people that do not have kittens – they are stealing people’s photos, content from other legitimate breeder’s websites and creating a brand new website from it. Claiming they have kittens – and then screwing people out of their money. They use keywords like, “Professional Ragdoll Cat breeders” or “Purebred Ragdolls” to help their website be found on Google. And innocent people that are looking to buy a Ragdoll kitten, find it – see all the pretty photos and get suckered into buying one because they make the website look legitimate with a purchase agreement, shipping guarantee and more. But there is a lot of misspellings and you can find the content they post on other breeder’s websites. For example, they copied and pasted the content on their Shipping and Guarantee page from a Savannah cat breeder.
I HATE wasting Floppycats site’s content on something like this. I HATE spending my time on something like this. BUT I HATE scams and frauds and especially those that involve animals even more.
I am hoping this post will make them stop and also make others stop that might be doing the same. They will probably change their name by the time this posts – but they have used “RAGDOLL FAMILY” or “Ragdoll Giants” so far. Please let me know what other names they use. I posted about this scam two weeks ago on Facebook – you can see the discussion here:
