So...I got scammed
Yeah, yeah, i know i know. Crappy.
The story: I've been looking for a used Macbook off Kijiji, and the going rate for the style i wanted was 700$-750$. So i found a few good ones, called around....no luck. Most were already sold. Then, when I was sick of calling, one popped up. Cool. So, I emailed the guy, asked if he would take 700$, and said I'd be there on Sunday to pick it up. Turns out we wasn't in Toronto, but Kincardine. So I said, cool, just ship it and I'll send a money order.
I sent the money though "Email Interact". It's approaching 2 months....and no laptop. We called the bank, and they had his info but couldn't give us any of it. He had my address, i had his. He lived 5 hours away, wouldn't respond to emails, eventually closed the mail account. The dude even described himself;"i have a goatee with glasses and a orange e-bike" I figured (this was when 4 days ago was his last reply), how the heck will he send emails to me when he sent me his computer?
Well, it was a scam. Now the cops are involved and should be doing something within a week or two.
That was the short version.
So, when we called the cops 2 and 1/2 weeks ago, the cop i get is going on holidays for 3 weeks, so he won't be able to do anything until he's done. He should be back soon. I SHOULD have asked for a phone number.
My rant done.
Needed somewhere to post this.
