Okotoks man warns about online scam after 11 strangers show up at his home

March 14, 2021 – A southern Alberta man is sending out a warning after several people showed up at his home earlier this week looking to buy the same trailer.

“We had 11 different people come to our house in Okotoks responding to the same Kijiji ad,” Okotoks resident Marty Gaffney said. “The problem is, it wasn’t our ad.”

Gaffney said several people started showing up at his home around 6 p.m. on Tuesday night after texting with a person who had posted the fake ad. Some of the victims drove from as far as Edmonton, Red Deer and Lethbridge. Global News reports. | READ MORE
