Beware of Scam Ads on Used Nanaimo Website And KIJIJI



These Ads Will Only Take Your Money!

On the Used Nanaimo free classified website today there are a number of obvious scammer ads trying to take in the gullible.

The tip off? The price is far too good to be true and is designed to let your greed for a great deal blind you to the obvious.

You will find if you respond to these type of ads the car will not be available for inspection locally and you will have to send money (sometimes through eBay) before the car will be shipped. The scammer will tell you the money won't be released to him until you have received the car, but that is simply a lie. Don't fall for it.

Another free classified website these trolls use for trolling for suckers is the kijiji website which also has several obvious scammer ads as well.

Remember the old saying "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

Forewarned is forearmed, don't fall for this or the only thing you will get is a red face and lost money for your trouble.

  1. Thankfully I was raised by a very wise set of parents. I have never given money to anyone until I have the product in my hand. If you can not examine the product before you pay for it, you deserve to be ripped off.
