Kijiji scammer (have photo)

This guy is a scammer. I saw his ad on KIjiji selling a brand new S10 Plus, he insisted his phone is original from Samsung. As i am from Kingston, i asked my friend to buy it on behalf of me. Because the phone was sealed , my friend didn't open the phone to check. He also provided a receipt so my friend paid $750 for him without checking. Then shipped it to me. And when i opened the box, i was shocked, this is definitely a clone/version/fake version of the Samsung S10 Plus. I was so careless, so don't want anyone to be scammed like me anymore. If you see this guy or are going to buy something to him in the future please let me know or call the police. The number which he used to call me is: +16475578549. I am not sure is this his real number or he just used the TextNow app to create this number.

Not much that you can do... Police won't care at all... They will just file a report and move on to more important things

$750 for brand new S10+ is obviously too good to be true... this is exactly why you never buy brand new phones on Kijiji, and certainly not sight-unseen.

Asking others to buy for you is not a good idea in general, its not their money and they don't care. Buy a book is ok, but not for those electronics

Even not scam, but might be defect or whatever, they won't check carefully , they are just messanger

Did you report it to Kijiji?

Technically what you should’ve done is had your friend ship it at the time of money exchange because if he didn’t give to him he could’ve done a bait and switch.
