Kijiji Scams



Most people already know about these, but just in case.

There is a guy that has been posting on Kijiji.ca for a month or two, cars in the $7000 range, that are actually worth $15,000 or more.

For Example, '06 Mini Cooper, White for $6000.00

Here is an actual example.


Real Car is in the US, @ $15,000 or so.

Real EBAY Listing
But the scammer has it on Kijiji for $3500.00

RE:2002 HONDA S2000
jjonhson@hotmail.com

Hello there,
Thanks for getting back to me. I'm writing you regarding my 2002 HONDA S2000. The price I'm looking for is US $8000.00 US.The car is in Berlin, Germany but she is a US car.I'm currently in a business trip with my company in Paris, France for the next 2 weeks, that's why i arranged everything with the delivery of the car.I want to point out that i am in the process of moving because of changing my working place, i am after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why i decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.
The title, all the paperwork needed to register the car under your name will come with the car.
Best regards.

Subject: RE: Reply to your "2005 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan" Ad on Kijiji

Hello,
Sorry for the delayed response, but I'm in Los Angeles (US) right now and I have been very busy.Any way,thank you for your interest in buying my car.
The car is located in US right now but has Canada papers and still registrated in Canada.
Why is the price so low? I am going through a divorce, and I had to move out of Canada. I cannot register the car here, as it is not made for USA market
and here in California a car is very difficult to registrate.So all that I want to do now is to sell the car at this price, because I need to sell it fast
and I can't find a buyer in here.
I want to take this opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate,the financial part of this deal will be managed by eBay Purchase Protection,
because Kijiji is a eBay affiliate website.
The final price for the car with shipping included,is $8000.I will not negociate the price. I take in consideration only those buyers who are really
interested in buying the car, to be sure that I'm not wasting my time with endless discussions.This way, I shall be assured of the serious intentions.
Click here and you can see more pictures :

So if you are interested please email me back.
Regards,
Robert Seizemore

I just went through 2 of them with Sleds on kijiji

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in my 2006 Ski-Doo MX Z Adrenaline 600 HO SDI. The sled is in perfect condition, very well maintained, no damages and no mechanical problems, the engine runs and sounds awesome, it has 1260 miles. I am located in Salt Lake City, UT and I have the sled with me. I will ship it from here on my expense through DAS (Dependable Auto Shippers). The payment will be handled securely through SafePay Solutions. They will handle the financial part of this transaction, I will only take care of the shipping. If you want to make this purchase, the final price is $3100. I ask a little for this great sled since I am passing through a divorce with my wife and I need to get rid of it fast.
The pics speak for themselves, You'll love the sled, I can guarantee you that! Let me know what you decide.

Many thanks,
Marcus Cooke
^^ I emailed him back to go and see it, he replied
Quote:

The sled is already crated at the shipping Co. and is ready to go. It will come with all documents necessary for registration into your name. If you are really serious interested in the purchase of the sled please get back to me so I can explain you how the deal works.

Many thanks,
Marcus Cooke
This guy even made up a fake ebay page. I opened a new window and typed in the item number and didn't come up..

Hi , Thank you for your interest in purchasing my snowmobile. I know that there are numerous offers on the web and I'm glad that you choose to contact me regarding your willingness to purchase. I am a private seller not a shop and I had (for the moment) the privilege to buy this snowmobile for a low cost from a bankrupt store so that you have the opportunity to purchase from me at a great saving from the original price. We bought it along with others in order to make a showroom, but life had another plan for us. My wife was promoted so we had to move to another town and we do not have time to make our showroom. Besides, there are a lot of things which have priority now, so, this snowmobile has to go.The sled is in like new condition.The buy it now price is $ 4600.00 CAD.

Here are a few information about my snowmobile :
Make: Ski-Doo
Model: BLIZZARD
Year: 2007
Engine Size (cc): 800Engine Type: 2-Stroke
Type: Sport
Reverse Gear: Yes
Electric Start: Yes
Kilometers : 239
Primary Color: Yellow
Title: Clear

P.S I have also the snowmobile listed on eBay.Here isthe link where you can see the snowmobile and moreinformation and pics : http://www.cgi-autos-motors-ebay-aw..../ski%20doo.htm I will wait your e-mail if you are stil interested. Thank you.Steve
^^ I emailed him back and he said they were in NYC.. So I emailed him back requesting to go and see it.. no reply

First of all I want to thank you for your interest for my car. I sell at this price($2,870.00 USD) because i just finished the divorce with my husband.
When the divorce has finished i own this car. Now as a women i don't need. This car is in excellent working conditions, no scratches,
flaws or any kind of damage, slightly used in 100% working and looking conditions and comes with a clear title.
From the beginning you have to know that for the payment I request only secure pay, I prefer the payment to be done using eBay services.
We will use a safe payment method because I am affiliated at eBay and I have a purchase protection account for $20.000.
The final price that I want for this car is $2,870.00 USD including shipping and handling.

If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon

Just keep reporting to Kijiji, using the "Report Fraud" button on the right side for each ad.

I guess this guys fake msn e-mail address, which is different in each fake ad, should be gathered and forwarded to MSN.

There has to be a way to ban his IP, or track him down.

I think he uses a gmail account to create the kijiji ads, but responds via hotmail/msn. He also creates one gmail account for each ad, as you can't link to his other ads.

"Pass the word around"
Some poor guy is going to loose some money. It's a matter of time

The scammers do this a lot with motorbikes too, all sorts of great recent bikes for around $4000.

There are GREAT ways to get back at them:

I recently replied to what was likely a scam. Basically I was told to send the money and I'll be sent the item. I realized it was a scam and reported it. However, I used a personal account with my real name on it. Any possible issues with that? I guess I concerned with id theft and things like that nowadays.

LOL this is hilarious! is this site for real? They're hunting down scammers, one at a time?! look at that trophy wall! http://www.419eater.com/html/trophy_room.htm

I cant believe they've all been exposed by 419eater.com?! Is this for real?

Call me a commi, but These Scammers should be monitered better (If we have no privacy rights on the internet, and government moniters everything people do, then moniter 419 scammers, and people ripping off other people)...Simple IP lookup would tell it all. Limit their internet access, to a Giant LAN network of scammers only No external WWW access. So they can only contact other scammers and rip each other off all day long. Amazing how much time they have all day to write emails back and forth.
