Canadian kitten fraud
January / February 2008: The Canadian woman and her sister in law are starting a cattery. They want to buy the Bengal kitten (N)Ridanos Desdemon. The three legged kitten is part of the deal. The Canadian woman will come to Norway for a short visit. Payment will be via Western Union. I agree to let her also take (N)Ridanos Fandango and pay after her return to Canada. Link 1. Email correspondence - The sister in law, 18, Feb to 30 March 2008, Email correspondence from the Canadian woman, 06 Feb to 17th Feb 2008.

Two of the kittens go to the sister in law and two to the Canadian woman. Both the sister in law and the Canadian woman place ads in newspapers and on internet sites like Kijiji.

May 12 2008: The Canadian woman tells me that neither she nor her sister in law seem to be able to sell any cats. They are over 5 months old and they are fighting and will soon be spraying in her apartment. She needs to keep them in cat carriers much of the time. Already a month previous they are placed in a cat carrier when prospective buyers visit her. Cf. 06th April 08: “I put them in the cat carrier with food so I won't have to chase them around.” (Could this be why she and her sister in law could not sell any?) At this time I had already considered the kittens a write-off.
June 10 2008: I receive a complaint from Martha, buyer of Eros, one of the four kittens. I was just starting my vacation so my priorities were limited to giving Martha advice about dealing with the kitten’s behavioral problems. I notify the Canadian woman and she replies “Wow, what a crazy bitch! I have no time to deal with this, I have to leave for work. Skype you when I get home.”
July 13 2008: I publish a short video of me and a woman in a café from my vacation. Hours later a woman from Tennessee, channel name “sharonclyon” makes the following public comment on the Canadian woman’s YouTube channel “Mulelover”: "Sometimes I wonder if love is worth all the pain that comes with it". This “sharonclyon” individual has repeatedly claimed to be in love with me. Cf. Skype log, comments on YouTube videos. Up until this point the Canadian woman had only the most flattering things to say about me and my treatment of my cats.
July 14 2008: I send the Canadian woman an email asking for an update on the complaint. She does not answer but publically on her YouTube channel responds to sharonclyon with the following: “Sharon, sometimes things aren't what they seem. Take it from me, I've found they never are.”
July 31 2008: Numerous unsuccessful attempts had been made to gain contact with the Canadian woman. Having had time to study the correspondence between the Canadian woman and Martha I found totally uncalled-for insulting, offensive and threatening remarks from the Canadian woman. I wrote to her again demanding she pay back Martha the $500.00, inform me about the whereabouts of the other three cats, and pay me my half.
August 02 2008: The Canadian woman publishes a bulletin on her YouTube channel using my full name “Richard Norton” and accusing me of pretending to be sick and collecting sickness benefit, tax-evasion and non-payment of child support. She also encourages people to contact my 16 year old son.
August 02 2008: The Canadian woman publishes a channel comment on my fan site RidanosBengalsZone claiming she has been contacted persons in Norway regarding non-payment of child support.
August 03 2008: In an email the Canadian woman informs that she has contact my Ex and will be forwarding bank statements and receipts from Western Union.
August 04 2008: I publish a video The Canadian kitten Fraud explaining the situation and asking that the new owners take contact with me. The Canadian woman and her sister in law make numerous comments ridiculing Martha, the person that bought the kitten Eros 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, They accuse me of swindling them! I am also repeatedly accused of child abuse “I will not give some scum bag abuser a dime, very relevant I would say.” I am also accused of tax fraud and nonpayment of child support. Comments are made on the video and naming the man living with the woman in the cafe video 13 of July 2008, claiming we were cheating on him. His name and telephone were published on the Canadian woman’s channel.
August 06 2008: The video is replaced with Canada Kitten Fraud - address removed because the Canadian woman’s address could be seen on a document in the video. This video included my three demands, 1. Pay Martha back the $500, inform me about the whereabouts of the other three kittens and pay me my share. Comments on the video are similar to the previous video.
September 09-16 2008: A woman in California, Vennie, writes to the president of the KoolKatsClub informing her about a member of her club's involvement in the theft of the kittens, public ridicule of the person that bought one of the kittens and other unethical behavior. The president’s reply to Vennie was so different from her reply to the sister in law that many thought it was a forgery. The reply to the sister in law was forwarded to Vennie by the sister in law and to me by the Canadian woman. This strange correspondence is here.
