Like many I have got the call about the grou[ that they want to sell our truck for us and get us our asking price and we would get a certified check. My husband were skeptical. So a really great thing you can do is call 1 -800- O -CANADA. They were really informational and gave me 4 numbers to call to see if they were a scam or not. So here are some
-I called about the (BBB) better business beau ( I think that is what its called) and this business was not listed. SCAM
-Other advice was to see if they have a GST # and you can check it to see if they did register it at www.cra.gc.ca Click on business tab, Then GST/HST, then GST/HST registry and put the number in there.
-When i went to call them about a GST number they put me on hold and i had better things to do then wait. So i took that as a no.
-And if they don't work for you then there is a Provincial Police line that I got ahold of. I asked about this business, they came back that a judge or jury can declare that. But they also said that you want to research them before you give them you credit card.
-I also called my bank to see if they ever heard anything about this. Of course not. They said some people are getting really good at forging certified cheques.
I hope this gives someone some help of where to go about when they don't know what to do.
Listen to your gut, intuiton, tug or whatever you call it. Its true
