(Innisfil, ON) On Wednesday, March 29, 2017, a man reported a fraud to South Simcoe Police. He had advertised a computer for sale on the buy and sell website, Kijiji. He received a response and the prospective buyer sent him a bank draft for $2800, with instructions that the excess money obtained from cashing the draft was to be given to the man picking up the computer. The victim attended the bank where he was informed that the draft was a forgery. The victim did not suffer a loss.
This fraud, known as the Overpayment Scam, attempts the lure the victim into cashing fraudulent or stolen cheques or money orders. Once the victim has returned the overpayment, the bank will call with information that the cheque has bounced, and the victim is out the cash. When selling items on-line, never accept an overpayment for any transaction. We recommend face to face selling, with exact change in cash as the only means of payment.
