I listed an old vehicle on Kijiji, and had a response almost instantly, saying she lived in the US (I am in Canada) and that she wanted to buy my car for the asking price, unseen and undriven. She would arrange for a carrier agent to pickup and deliver the car. She said a deposit had been made to Pay Pal, but the money was being held until I could pay the carrier agent $900 thru a Money Gram transaction. I recieved 3-4 emails from a fake Pay Pal website, and also from a \"broker\"assuring me that this deal was 100% legit
