Scammer on Kijiji - Is Now on RFD

Its a good thing I looked it up and canceled my EMT transfer before he deposited it in... No RFD history. Was a fool and got suckered in by the price. Too good to be true. He even gave me a story of how he got defrauded over the internet.

Long story short, he also sent me a pic of him receiving my EMT transfer but I confirmed with him if he's deposited it yet. He hasn't so I canceled it immediately.

Either he's shifty or just doesn't send in the phones he sells as per the link I posted above...

Just thought I'd let you know.

Seller even opted in for a "deposit", good thing I didn't send the entire amount and just half..

Phew, got lucky with that one.

Edit: This could be repeat douchbag scammer Michael Berkeley Ogden, who apparently is back at it after being released from jail. He has been linked to this phone number. OP, you may wish to consider contacting RCMP.

Online con man jailed 1 year

A Halifax man who offered laptop computers for sale online but never delivered the goods is going to jail.

Michael Berkeley Ogden, 26, of Mandaville Court appeared in Halifax provincial court Wednesday for sentencing on six counts of fraud under $5,000, all involving an Internet scam that ripped off customers across the country.

He had also pleaded guilty to one count of theft over $5,000, in connection with a truck that he didn’t return to a rental company.

Judge Michael Sherar accepted a joint sentencing recommendation and gave Mr. Ogden six months concurrent on each of the fraud charges and six months consecutive on the theft charge, for a combined sentence of one year.

Mr. Ogden was arrested at his Fairview apartment in February. He had only been living in Halifax for a few months, after residing in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.

Halifax Regional Police began investigating after receiving a tip from PhoneBusters, an RCMP-operated call centre to report fraud.

The six charges that were laid against Mr. Ogden involved consumers in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia who were taken for a total of $2,400. The offences occurred between October and February.

Crown attorney Jim Clarke said Mr. Ogden has travelled across the country for the past three years, "doing his thing."

"He survived on his Internet activities, ripping people off for laptops he never had," Mr. Clarke said.

The prosecutor said more than 60 people may have been scammed by Mr. Ogden before he was caught. He used 35 different e-mail addresses and 28 phone numbers along the way.

Mr. Ogden declined the opportunity to address the court before he was sentenced.

Judge Sherar said Mr. Ogden, who has fraud convictions in Alberta and Ontario, was "pretty lucky" to be receiving the sentence recommended to the court. "Next time you’ll be getting federal time."
