Brockville Man Scammed When Trying to Buy Car Over Kijji

The Brockville police are reminding residents to be careful when making online money transfers to strangers.

Police reported yesterday (March 1st) that a 31-year-old man lost a sizeable deposit on a 2010 Lexus he agreed to buy over Kijji.

The victim was provided an email address where the money could be transferred, he was also provided a Brockville address where the victim could view the vehicle.

When he arrived at the residence however, there was no car for sale, no one at the residence with the name provided and residents had no idea about a vehicle for sale.

Police want to remind everyone to never electronically transfer money to people, businesses or organizations you do not know or trust.
