There's a new scam abound on the internet, and St.Thomas Police Officer Constable Jeff Deleeuw was one of the targets.  Deleeuw said he posted an ad attempting to sell a vehicle, and was text just a few hours later.

Deleeuw goes on to explain that afterward s, the fraudster sends a fake email from PayPal confirming the money has arrived.  The fraudster then informs PayPal they never received the product, and PayPal gives them a refund on your money.  Deleeuw says the best way to avoid fraud like this is to always make transactions in person, nd to put no PayPal at the end of your ads.
