Filthy Swindlers!

It has come to our attention that there is another scammer out there trying to swindle money out of people – not very neighborly of them!

As usual, our Moderation Team works tirelessly to catch these kinds of posts. As soon as we find out, the ads are taken down and Katie and I take to Twitter/Facebook/this very blog to let everyone and their grandma know about it.

These particular ads have already been taken off of the Used sites, but if you happen to see another one spring up please let us know by hitting the “Report Ad” button and we’ll take it from there!

This prompt should look pretty familiar to our loyal users. As a refresher, Katie discussed safety while using our site in her blog post Safety First.

The ad said something along the lines of:

“Canucks Fans do not miss this! All the remaining home games of the
season located in Section 119 row 7 seats 3,4. This is an urgent sale
due to relocation with work and the tickets are priced to sell for
1400 total. Contact me if interested. Thank you!”

This is what the website looks like for Elite Cargo Express:

Here’s a really handy blog post about this particular scam from NetScammers!

Stay safe out there, everyone!
