Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I was contacted on Kijiji Canada via text first because I was selling a sofa:
Hello,am interested in your sofa, last Price? reply to my email. [email protected], thanks
I emailed him/her but then got a weird feeling because this person was trying to get me to email on my personal emailnl not Kijijis email set up. I ended up looking online for Kijiji fraud information and realized I was being scammed. This is the email I was sent by the fraudster:
Thanks for your response. Am okay with the price and am willing to pay you, Payment will be made by a Certified Bank Check when you receive the check, and you have cashed the check from your Bank, when the money is in your
account my shipper will come and pick up the goods, I will need the following information so that the payment can be sent out to you.
Full Name:. Full Address:. Mobile Number:. Last price:.
Thanks and best regards.
I haven’t replied – Kijiji badvised me this was indeed someone they could track and told me I should report it on BBB.
