Warning: Unfortunately, we have been informed of instances where individuals are attempting to scam sellers of equipment on the Classifieds. Please be aware of the following indicators:
- Sends you (or wants to send you) a money order worth more than the agreed upon price, and asks you to send the remaining funds to them (or another address)
- Uses Western Union or other money order services
- Is outside of North America
- Offers to pay a premium above what you are asking
- Be wary of messages replying to your ad that mention a shipper or shipping agent that will come to your house to pick up the bike. This is a sign of a scam
The RCMP has the following warning posted on their website:
We strongly urge that you contact the RCMP if you believe a scam attempt is being made.
