Same story got 15000 for a 12000 car and told to wire the the balance Western Union to PETER ROLAND of the shipping co. in France. Draft was from Quebec National Bank--not even close. Name of guy who sent the draft--John Solomon told me he was from Alberta had a strong Jamacian slang to his voice, so when I asked him what time it was in AB he could not tell me that was the tip off the whole deal was bogus.Be aware he has many different names and email accounts.

I also got a "cashiers check" for 1,920 to be a secret shopper and evaluate a Western Union. Please. This guy must think nobody is on to him. My hobby is exposing these guys. The check is so obviously fake its laughable. Watch out for a guy named Raymond Bennett also.

Can you actually cash these and keep the money?
I got one to rent a room. The rent was 600 a month. The said they would pay first last an second month for a total of 1800. I got a CIBC money order for 4600. I would never put in my bank. I went CIBC and they said they would have to clear it. I went to money mart and they cashed it. A week later they called and said its fraudulant. I said too bad and called the police. The police took my report and told money mart it was not my issue. I got another check from a company in hamilton for 19k. I turned it in. I kept and spent the 4600.

Raymond is still at it. My cheque was for $2,500 for item sold for $400. Balance sent via Western Union -to shipper Peters Rolan in France. Cheque was from Richmond BC. I'm pissed, got 4 calls for my furniture and put this item on hold for this crap.

I am currently having the exact same thing happening to me. This morning I recieved $2,500.00 check for a gym we're selling for $280.00 On kijiji , he expected us to send money via western union for his delivery, first was an address in Scotland, now it's Paris France, when he supposedly lives in BC. I am thinking it's a huge scam, but not sure what to do. Rip up the check? Or take it to the bank find out if it's authentic and reap in karmas reward? I have already been scammed online this month!

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 almost got scammed too! I am a Spanish tutor and I was suppose to "tutor" David Allan's "son", from UK coming for 4 months to the States with his "church". He was supposed to pay me only U$D 450, and I received a canadian money order of $2,500 canadian dollars!! He was never clear about anything and he also had the nerve to also called me and asked me to run to the bank and cash the order asap. I began suspecting, and after my 100000 questions, he sttoped emailing or calling me. Now I want to report him and all the scammers everywhere I can. I heard that they always "live" in UK, or France...
His emails: AND

our business posted an ad on Kijiji and a person replied (via text only). There was no negotiation on equipment worth about $3,000 and was located in Montreal. He wanted it shipped to the following address:

2707 Rue Ostiguy apt2
Saint Laurent

He also used a New York cell phone number and when we received the Interac transfer it came from the name Gergios Morarisg. It required a tracking number before the funds would be received.

We called Interac and they do not EVER require a tracking number for email internet transfers.

I received a check today drawn on Midland States Bank for $1750.00. I was told to purchase a $50.00 item and wire the balance to someone in Port du Prince. That was the key for me. I knew it had to be a scam.
