Sask. man accused of posting fraudulent ads on Kijiji
A Saskatoon-area man is facing charges after he allegedly posted fraudulent ads to the popular classifieds website Kijiji.
RCMP say the online posts advertised an acreage for sublet and rent near Warman. The ads asked respondents to pay a large damage deposit.
Police say the man accused of posting the fraudulent ads was in the process of being evicted from the acreage when the landlord reported the ads to the RCMP.
Trevor Payne, 27, has been charged with fraud, theft under $5,000 and four counts of false pretenses. He was set to appear in a Saskatoon courtroom this morning.
RCMP are asking anyone who may have responded to the fraudulent ads to call the Warman detachment at 975-1670.
