RCMP warns of online marketplace scams (Nova Scotia)

In the last month, Halifax District RCMP have received several reports of online marketplace scams.

Several scams involved victims placing an ad online for various items (these have included clothes, electronics and instruments). The suspect poses as a buyer and asks the seller to send the items, promising that payment will follow. The seller sends the items but the payment never arrives.
