Fraud Unit investigating Real Estate scams in classified ad sites
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, November 14, 2013 3:32 pm
(Ottawa)—The Ottawa Police Service Organized Fraud Unit is investigating public complaints of real estate fraud using online classified sites.
Unknown suspects are duplicating genuine online postings of area properties at a drastically reduced asking price. To date, phony ads have been posted on “Kijiji” and “For Sale By Owner.ca”. The suspect(s) represent themselves as agents for the property and provide a contact telephone number or e-mail to the public.
It appears the suspect(s) are attempting to convince interested buyers to provide a “deposit”. In some cases the suspect has actually contacted the genuine sellers indicating they have clients interested in the property.
The Ottawa Police Organized Fraud Unit continues to investigate these complaints and warns that “such good deals are sometimes too good to be true.”
Anyone with information regarding this activity or if you may have been a victim of these ads can contact the Ottawa Police Fraud Section, Sgt. Mike Noonan at 613-236-1222, ext. 5434 or phone Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477(TIPS) or toll free at 1-800-222-8477.
