Another week, another scam. For shame, scammers! For shame!
This particular scam features the individuals behind it sending our emails and posing as the Used.ca team. Sigh. When will they learn??
There are some key issues in this email that identify it as being a fake:
1) We don’t play favourites with our sellers.
2) We don’t ever call ourselves a “firm” (how stuffy is that?!).
3) We don’t get involved in transactions. It was aÂ consciousÂ decisionÂ that we’re the broker between the buyer and seller. Once you get a hold of each other, we step back and let you work out the details between the two of you.
The ads associated with this particular scam have been removed and the users have been blocked. Having said that, watch out for this scam or other similar scams, and as always, if you see anything that looks suspicious, please report it and and let us know!
