    Default Fuck...got taken hook, line and sinker.

    My son has been looking forward to the Bruins game for the past year. SO excited. Looked on kijiji and fell for a scam. Guy contacted me, had seasons tickets, said he can transfer them via email. (I checked, yes this can be done legitimately) Sent me a photo of his passport to show he wasn't a scammer. (Should've been a red flag).

    Sent him the money, but sent it via "friends and family gift". I didn't realize this voids Paypals buyer protection policies.

    Aaaand the rest is history. Fuck. $250 beans down the toilet.

    It probably isn't. However at least I now know not to accept that passport as proof of honesty.

    it's obviously not the scammers ID. But showing this guy's name and passport hopefully either he sees it so he knows someone is using his identity or at the very least someone else doesn't get taken like I did.

    Can't afford it now. That was the money we had set aside for the game.

    It really sucks that this kind of crap keeps happening to people.

    I will take this opportunity to copy some pointers from kijiji.ca:

    http://help.kijiji.ca/helpdesk/safety/safety-at-kijiji
    Ensure that all transactions take place locally, in-person and with cash.

    When buying or selling, you should meet in-person to inspect the product and exchange funds.

    Never send or wire money to sellers or buyers. This includes mailing a cheque or using payment services like PayPal, Amazon Payments, Google Wallet/ Checkout, Canada Post, Western Union or MoneyGram. Typically, scammers will use these services and will even falsify documents.

    Yeah I tried to PM you! Dave I remember the video you posted of your son playing hockey. If the beyond tickets above are still available I would like to buy them for your son.

    Edit - I see Rages post and assume he may have it covered. If not, my offer stands.

    Looks like I'm late to the game, but if any of the above falls through, I'll pick up the tab for those tickets.

    Same here Dave. If for whatever reason no one else buys you the tickets... message me. I'll buy you guys a pair

    Honestly...I didn't make this thread for anyone to feel sorry for me. It was my own stupidity that got me into it...I just wanted to warn others. I do a lot of online transactions, and am pretty hip to any type of frauds, so more than anything I was just embarrassed, but thought a few could benefit from my mistake.

    Having said that, I WAS really disappointed about missing a key game for my boy. As some of you may know, he's special needs, and is a member of Special Olympics Calgary and hockey is his life.
    He's been dying to see Chara in real life for years now. For some reason he loves tall players lol.

    Guys...JRS, Fraser, Graham...thank you so much for the kind offer. Yes, Shelton offered me his tickets. Shelton...I'm speechless man. I wasn't expecting this at all. (damn onions in the air). I'm by no means a welfare bum, but this is an extremely appreciated gift, that I wouldn't have been able to cover..twice. I would like to pay this forward in some way. Either to you directly, Shelton or in some other way.

    One of my son's best friend (Downes kid) really loves hockey too, so I will be taking him for sure.

    I will keep you posted.
    Shelton; Thank you man. Truly a stand up guy.

    Regards,
    Dave.
