LaSalle Police say that they are currently investigating two separate reports in the last two days of scams on Kijiji involving homes for rent.

Police say that they believe the scammers are copying legitimate ads on Kijiji, and waiting for the ad to be removed. The scammer then re-posts the same add with their contact info.

The scammer will indicate that he is on the other side of Canada and request the victim to e-Transfer the money to their email address.

The scammer states once the money is received, they will FedEx the keys to the house, but that never happens.

Police say both investigations are ongoing.
