Two Ontario strangers made headlines after an online rental went wrong this week. The bizarre incident put a spotlight on what fraud experts say is an "evolving" world of scams in the online economy.
According to Nikki Wilson, the alleged caper began when she tried to rent a house advertised on Kijiji. But it turns out that somebody already lived there — that somebody being Kit Pullen — and the Ottawa house certainly wasn't available for rent.
In the end, Wilson was out $900 and Pullen got a mountainous pile of someone else's stuff dumped on the driveway of his home.
