Scammed on Kijiji by RFD user "Nicholas"

User "Nicholas", otherwise known as Nicholas Lakan: Click here for his RFD profile.

His email address is: nixhxlas@hotmail.com, authenink@gmail.com, info@nfmaintenance.com, and tintdynasty@gmail.com

His affiliated businesses: N&F Maintenance, and Tint Dynasty (25 Fisherman Drive - Unit 13, Brampton, ON)

Transaction involved money in exchange for a PS Plus. Sent the money, he accepted it, and sent the code. Code turned out to be no longer valid. We tried multiple times to text and call back the number he used but it's pretty obvious he's using burner number(s).

Did a little digging around on RFD and it turns out this user is actively selling Netflix group share accounts (click here for the thread). Confirmed when I posed as an interested party to one of the accounts and he sent me the same email address for EMT that he asked us to send the money for the code to the PS Plus to. Called him out on it, and we received a call from a "Private Number" shortly afterwards telling us he will look into it. We never heard back from him again after that; no calls, no texts, no PMs, no emails from him.

Not holding my breath on getting the money back at this point, but hopefully this helps deter anyone else from dealing with this person. Kind of pathetic considering he "says" he's gotten screwed over on Kijiji before so we shouldn't have anything to worry about.

Here are some screenshots of the conversation. I have more but these pretty much gives an idea of how the event unfolded. If the image is too big, I apologize.

Yes, hopefully it helps as defrauding someone outside of RFD is not grounds for a ban on here. Just have to rely everyone does their due diligence.

Considering Nicholas has been logging on and have not contacted us thus far, it's safe to say this will never be resolved.

As my SO (krisztianf on RFD, who was the one Nicholas dealt with on Kijiji) has been dealing with Nicholas, it's evident this will not get resolved based on my interpretation of their recent communication.

Until Nicholas can provide krisztianf (or myself) with sufficient damning evidence supporting the claims and allegations he has chosen to make in that recent communication, I'm leaving this thread up as a deterrent for anyone who may want to deal with Nicholas in the future.

For everyone wondering, it's not the amount; it's the principle of the matter at hand. Just make sure you do your due diligence when dealing with people you don't know, and do your research.

I will issue no updates or changes to any words I have written on here until further notice.

I believe in karma. Wait until one day something bad happens to him. Just remember when it does it’s because of what he did.
