Thursday, October 21, 2010 FRAUD
Files located at:

Is a fake shipping and escrow site targeting Canadians.
The scammer is listing apartments for rent on Craigslist in the $700/mo range.
He is asking for payments via Western Union to someone in the UK.

The scammer is also feeding his intended victims this line of "BS".
He's asking his victims to commit tax fraud:

After the payment is sent please e-mail us the transfer code( MTCN# ) so we can check if the transfer is valid.
Important Note:  For business money transfer or internet transactions, WesternUnion charges customers a fee between 50-100.00$ CAD (an international sales tax imposed by the state).
If you would like to avoid this fee, when the WesternUnion agent asks you what are you sending the money for , you can tell him/her that you are sending the money to a friend. There will be no problem and the payment will be received.
Here are some images of the site:

Thank you for your reply. Like I have informed you before, the price you have to pay for one month of rent will be 700CAD$  with no extra fees you will have access to all facilities provide by the building. The utility bills are paid directly from my bank account. The price will not increase monthly, it will remain the same for the whole period that the contact will be signed for. We can start with a basic 1 year contract with the possibility of renewing it or with the period of time suitable for you.About the payment, I would like to receive it monthly into my bank account and I hope there will be no problem for you to wire the money to it. The apartment is ready for you, you only need to receive the keys and the contract so you could check it out, and see if you like it. The apt will be unfurnished but it can be rented very easily with the furniture at the same price. Also pets are allowed. Since I'm in London, United Kingdom we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are asking for. I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the Keys in less than 2 days. The solution is provided by a company called Cargo Movers which will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys. I have found a procedure that will allows you to pay for the rent of the apt only after you will receive the keys, and through this way you will see it and decide if you like it or not, before sending the payment. Please click on the link bellow to the Cargo Movers web site to see how we can complete the deal safely and fast directly from the web site of the company where this procedure is explained in the SAFE EXCHANGE SERVICE: ( if the link is not working please try and copy it in your web browser)

NEVER use instant payment services like Western Union or MoneyGram to buy items on the internet.
