FRAUD: Beware of scammers on the internet. Seller's are receiving Buyer inquiries from potential Buyer's in other countries.

After shipping, they request that you refund the shipping charges back to them or give the additional money to the shipping company. The cashier's check will be counterfeit. Kitty Kruse Auction Service recommends that Seller's beware of scammers.
