Back of Vehicle Equipment Sale Scam
There is an idiom which suggests if something seems too good to be true, it likely is. A Guelph male found that out the hard way Wednesday afternoon.
The male was leaving a business on Stone Road West when he was approached by two males in the parking lot. The males claimed they worked for a technology company and had received extra stock, which they were selling at a discount.
The male viewed the equipment and agreed to purchase a surround-sound system, projector and screen for $2,600. He went to a nearby bank with one of the males and withdrew the cash. He later determined the equipment was not nearly the quality he believed it was.
The first male was described as white, 30-40 years, 6’ tall with dark hair and a thin build. The second was white, late 20s with a thin build and thin beard. Both were wearing grey polo shirts with the name of an audio company on the front. They were driving a white Jeep Cherokee.
The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Constable Keith Kolodziejczak at 519-824-1212, ext. 7452, email him at email@example.com, leave an anonymous message for Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip online at www.csgw.tips.
