We as well received a Canadian Bank Draft from the Bank of Montreal for the amount of $2500. He asked for us to send the remaining balance through western union to a mrs florence jeff in nunhead london. We went to the Bank of Montreal this morning and was told that it wasnt any good. That it was the old one and that they dont use them anymore. The email address of the person that did this to us is [email protected]

I have been dealing with a Richard Clarke, from . He sent me a CIBC international money order for $840 dollars. I am to cash it out at my bank, deduct 150 dollars from it, to purchase my "mini office" equipment. Then I have to wire transfer the rest of the amount through Western Union and send it to Linda Morgan (the shipping agent from London)for her to send me the rest of my "mini office" equipment. Then I can start working for them as a Data Entry Clerk, which is apparently entering company's old orders under a system and then send it back to them, I make $50 per order i enter... has anyone else heard of this one before... I still got the money order (haven't cashed it yet, although "Mr. Clarke" has been asking me when will I send him the information for the wire transfer) and I am not 100% sure if it is a scam can someone help me. The email they are using is [email protected] and at first I was dealing with a David Morgan now is Richard Clarke.

Same thing from a Scott and Irina Pankratov. Said they were out of town for the holidays but wanted to secure payment quickly. They referred to the "item" never the Bed frame. I gave them all my info then for the heck of it I googled their names and I really wasn't surprised when this showed up! I have emailed them back and said it was sold for a higher price, sorry. Yeah right.... We'll see what happens next.

I got suspicious when I received a money order in the amount of 2450$ from the BMO for an item I was selling on Kijiji for 250$. I was to send the money to Murphy Davies in Paris. The purchaser's name on the MO is Carol David. I also supposedly sold another item the next week on Kijiji. I can imagine it is a scam also. Just waiting for my fake Money order to come in!!

i've got two of these yesterday zand about 3 cashiers checks sent to me
i like f'ing with the people. i tell them the nearest western union is in the next town over and i don't want to drive there. or i don't have W>U. near me.
the people go into a panic.
i had a friend who got a 3000 cashiers check, deposited money in his account, knew it was fake, then withdrew money and spent it. then bank came to him a few days later asking for money. he never paid it back

Sold and item for $150 and she sent me a money order for $2250 and told me to cash it and send the rest through western union to some guy in Paris France.

I got my yesterday, for the amount of 2350.00, printed on a BMO Money order. The item I was selling was $300, and the letter instructs that $50 was for my troubles, and the rest of the $$$(2000 CDN) was to be wired to a Paul Badru, Paris, France /// The email that I have been corresponding with is [email protected] ..

I am going to continue to lead this individual on. BMO is aware of the scam, and it usual originates from a Sale on Kijiji or Craiglist ...

The local police don't care about the scam, or at least my local police taskforce don't care, and since most banks are aware of the scam, just be 100% sure the payment in genuine before shipping the product.

Cheers, fellow Canadians.

We are selling a van on Kijiji and have had the same response - he will send a money order and we are to pay the shipper - smelled the scam right away - we are currently still e-mailing with him (playing with him really tee hee) He says he is in Paris, but wants the van shipped to his home in Edmonton. I am with you John - would love the scam the scammer. His (her) e-mail is [email protected] and he claims his name is Ross Haswe. He wants our mailing address. ya right.
