    Default Scammed looking for your help *picture of scammer punk added*

    Had a user on Kijiji pay me with some really good counterfeit bills.

    License Plate . K-29571

    587-404-1069 was the number he called and texted with (guessing it is spoofed) when I look up that phone number on a facebook account comes up but it isn't the same guy at all. Looked and sounded of Lebanese decent, had a beard roughly 5'8 thicker build, wore blue contacts. Rolled up to my building in a white Hyundai, had a driver waiting for him. I've included links from my buildings security.

    These guys used fakes of the new 100's with the plastic and all, the major give away after was the serial numbers and lack of braille

    that sucks man, can you say what you sold? Long shot but posting a wanted ad for what you sold just in case the person wants to unload the stuff for cash. Or post something related to that item for sale?

    Long shot but might be fun to set a trap

    Yeah sorry to hear that Shadowz, post the ad so that we know what he bought.

    You've been here since day 1, you're fully aware of our detecting skills...

    If its something of high demand chances are there is someone else on beyond who's looking for the item you sold and could run into this/these guys.

    It was for a Louis Vuitton back pack, I just got an update from a few mutual friends that their friends also got scammed by the same guy. Did it to two others we know yesterday. Cocky guy was wearing the jacket he bought off one person. The bills are now with the police unfortunately.

    Super shitty, sorry to hear. I think most people would 'fall' for this, especially with good counterfeits. I certainly can't say I check all the bills when people buy stuff from me.

    For the last cash transaction I did recently ($2000+) I had it done at the bank, and the teller handed me the buyer's money themselves. Even suggesting to do the deal through a bank will be enough to scare off any scammers.

    RCMP in high river just posted about some good counterfeit 50s floating around. Said the clear part being really clear - not printed on - was the giveaway.

    Maybe related?

    Funny my GF posted an ad of something similar, I think the same guy has messaged her. Reached out to CPS, they aren't really willing to do much

    CPS won't do anything at all.

    Coworker had a similar situation - straight up handed them a conviction with a meeting place, time, phone number, conversation records, and purchase records with serial numbers matching the serial numbers on the stolen goods. Further to this, the exact same guy with the exact same phone number and exact same meeting place stole from her friend a week before. It would have been the easiest arrest imaginable, literally the only thing CPS had to do was meet the guy, and they didn't do it. Sorry to say there is zero chance they will be going after the guy.

    Sadly, I've come across quite a few lazy cps members as well

    Yeah. I got scammed out of money before; under different circumstances, but still essentially still fraud. Police won't do anything.

    Best case scenario is you take the guy to court, if he even gets caught. Even then, you just come out with nothing in the end.

    Hopefully a better outcome comes out of it, but such an outcome won't be the result of police action.

    My lady is very angry and very persistent, she posted up another bag and the guy bit. Here is his face, the Hyundai they were in and the license plate. Help me find this scum.

    Might be worth going on either Calgary crime Facebook pages or community watch pages. If you donít want to post yourself contact an admin and have them post it on your behalf.

    Did he give you the bag back in the end?

    Yea I think thatís maybe because the OP is a good guy and has no interest in harming someone else? Unlike the perp
