Kingston Police Warn Against Online Classified Ad Scams

The Kingston Police Fraud Unit is advising the public to always exercise caution when responding to classified ads posted on-line. In particular, the Fraud Unit has had several occurrences in which the scammers pretended to be members of the Canadian Forces being posted out of the country who were selling their vehicles.

The scammers then convince the potential buyers to send money in advance, either by bank wire transfer or a money transfer agent such as Western Union or MoneyGram. Scammers will also pretend at times to use an established third party to hold the money until delivery. In such cases, consumers should verify that the e-mail address provided for electronic transfers or the bank information provided for wire transfers actually belong to a legitimate service entity.

Police caution consumers against sending money to strangers before receiving an item or being able to confirm that it actually exists. Emails alone, even if they contain attachments of purported ownership documents or photographs of the item for sale, should not be relied upon.

He was seen driving and acting in an aggressive manner on the property in front of some nearby students he knew, which included revving the engine and driving up quickly beside the pedestrians. After a passenger was let out, he accelerated in reverse at a high rate of speed, striking the 16-year-old victim with the left rear side of the vehicle and causing her to be thrown multiple feet through the air and land on the ground.

The male stopped the vehicle, being aware the collision occurred, and was even advised by a nearby teacher attending the scene not to leave. However, the accused refused to provide assistance and fled the parking lot in his vehicle. He was last seen eastbound on Taylor-Kidd Boulevard.

Kingston Police units who were in the area, including Uniform Patrol, Street Crime and Emergency Response attended to assist and investigate. The female was transported to a local hospital by paramedics with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

A short time after the incident officers located the involved vehicle with rear-end damage at an address on Mayfair Crescent. The accused was found inside the residence and arrested for Dangerous Operation of Motor Vehicle Causing Bodily Harm, Fail to Remain, and two counts of Breach of Probation. He was held overnight to attend a bail hearing the following day.
