A scam on Kijiji has ripped off at least a few REAL Concerned Citizens recently.
A citizen had reached out to TRCCTB to report this scam going around. If you had been shopping on Kijiji for a bedroom set, you may have come across it. Here is what the post warning others about the scammers said:
“Please beware if you remember this add with the gorgeous bedroom set for 400.00 that was posted last night on Monday night, the add was fake.
My husband and I were victims of fraud. Our fault we sent an etransfer to this person for half to hold it for us. Directed us to an address that existed but no leah woods there.
She had or he had other items for sale on kijiji as well. We didn’t think this add was fraudulent. Just don’t get taken like we did and NEVER give money upfront no matter how great it looks.
They are not responding to calls or emails. Beware of this person, information that I have gathered is as follows:
Leah woods (FAKE NAME)
Picture of the bedroom set they had posted”
