Ok so the first scam is from email is Thomas Pet <thomaspet369@yahoo.com>; this guy was on felines4us.com. He is not a breeder his wife was but she past away couple months ago blah blah blah , he wont answer any questions or send new pictures of the kittens and he want me only to pay the 350 shipping fee to a fake shipping place. I gave him my number trying to get him to text me pictuers of the kittens NOTHING. Then yesterday i have missed calls from some number (6 misses calles) from 503-895-5504. When you type thew number in google it SAY ITS A PIT BULL PUPPY SCAM!! Not sure but this guy needs to be shut down. Oh then on felines4us.com thomas pet has many differend cat for sell , i asked him and he never said anything..
The second i found a add in the wyoming classifieds for savannah kittens in rock springs thinking this was strange i just asked him what he wanted for the kittens and i think it the same shipping type scam cause when i asked where he was he said Salt Lake City , I told him i would drive up there and now he wont respond lol ,,,, Kelvin Campbell <kelvincampbell00@gmail.com is this person name and email.. It makes me SAD THAT THERE ARE SO MANY SCAMS OUT THERE!!

Thanks for posting Kara...here is the thing - if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The best advice I can give is to buy from a reputable breeder...either look her in our breeder directory or on savannahcat.com - feline4us has many scammers as does craig's list, unfortunately.

I just wanted to look into getting one of these cats, I dont have the money right now but could get it at some point if it turns out to really be what I want, they are amazing cats and would like to look into the REAL possibility of what it take to have one and make sure it will be a good thing for our family. But i keep getting scams go figure . You right if it sounds to good to be true it really is!

Thats kinda why im on here , i figured it is time to talk to real people about it and I would get alot farther in the RIGHT direction.. I have done alot of reading and watching videos about these cats and i am blown away.. My daughter trinity (5yrs old) loves the idea of having a new pet, but i need to make sure it would be good for both my girls I also have a 4mth old.. I have read that these cats are great family pets.

Definitely do the research :) But yes, it is frustrating running into scammers too! Thankfully, the SV peeps have decent sites that support reputable breeders- SVcatchat.com (of course) and Savannahcat.com :)
