  Information
Name:

Telephone:
   15139098455
I posted an item for sale on kijiji. A week or so later I got a response from a guy who said he was fully committed
to purchase the item, but could not pay for it in cash, he was going to send me a check, after depositing it
into my account and having it cleared I was to deduct the price of the item and send the balance to his mover
so they would arrange pick up. And thus started a string of texts messages back and forth with suggestions as to how to send the money, first it was through, Money gram, then Western Union, Thankfully for both of them refusing to complete the transaction after security question.
Then it was to transfer the money to an E-Mail address through my online banking. then another suggestion was to go to Royal bank ATM and deposit the money there. at this
point resolution is pending, Text messages are still coming, until hopefully the authorities will put an and to this.
