    Kijiji scam or not?

    I put my snowcoach up for sale yesterday on kijiji then received a email. I've never sold anything on kijiji but it just seems fishy. Here's the email. Give me your thoughts



    Thanks for your swift response. I will be glad if you can mail me the present condition cuz due to nature of my job i will not be able to come for inspection, am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday, i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.


    Your price is Okay and i can offer you little bit more like $1,900.00, am offering you more than your asking price due to other potential buyers i hope my offer is acceptable..?


    As for the payment..i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal).


    I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made ... So no shipping included.. My private courier agent will come for the pick up and sign all necessary documents on my behalf after the payment have been made, as they will also be coming with all the information needed, my details and transferring the name of ownership to me will be done by the pick up agent so you don't have to worry about that...


    You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply. If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com and sign up. its very easy.I await your reply asap."

    That's what I'm thinking. I know PayPal is secure that's my only thing that's making me wonder.

    Nobody legitimate pays more than asking price, especially unseen. Somehow this won't be good for you.

    I sell lots of stuff on Kijiji, and I get the same sort of email every second day or so. I don't know if it's the same douchebag, or if there's a multitude of them, but follow boost's advice and run. I'm not exactly sure how this scam works....I think they actually might pay you through Paypal, pick up the item, then cancel payment. Always ask for a phone number....if they won't give it to you, or it's an out of country area code....tell em to lick bag.

    no its easy to spot a scam from the outside, but when its on yourself your excitement gets caught up you know. ive had this thing for sale for long time, not on kijiji though, then a day after posting the add $$$$ is mentioned and i got a little excited. ive seen similar scams before, but usually with money mart or whatever, paypal is more secure. im running far away, just wanted a second opinion

    rule of thumb with kijijiji is cash or no deal.

    kiijiji and paypal = scam
