Saskatoon Stolen TV Scam

The Saskatoon Police have announced a scam that has been happening around Saskatoon recently.  Apparently someone has been calling individuals as well been visiting local Saskatoon pubs and lounges offering people new stolen plasma TV’s for extremely cheap.  People have been taking this bait and showing up to a specified location to meet this individual and paying them money first.  The individual then leaves and never returns so the people are out their money without their stolen TV.  I am actually quite surprised people would even fall for this scam.  First off, it is illegal to purchase stolen goods and second off, who trusts a guy randomly calling you or coming up to you in a lounge or pub with a deal that is too good to be true?  This isn’t the first time I have heard a story similar to the “it’s too good to be true”.  I’ve dealt with many people in the Saskatoon real estate market who have had experiences of people looking at houses in Saskatoon that were being sold privately only to find out that there were major things wrong with the house that the person selling did not disclose.  This is one of the many important reasons its critical to work with a Saskatoon real estate agent.  By working with a Saskatoon Realtor you have access to additional information that people buying privately don’t.  A Saskatoon real estate agent can be sure that you ask all the right questions and get the answers you need before you make one of the biggest purchases of your life.  The last thing you want to happen is find out that the home you thought you got an incredible deal on was actually a lemon.  If you are looking to get involved in the Saskatoon real estate market be sure to contact me.
