  • Fake real estate ads prey on buyer desire for home deal

    An Ottawa woman says she was shocked to learn the condo she was selling online was also being offered on another website at a deeply discounted price, part of a complicated scam targeting unsuspecting home buyers.
    Julie Gutteridge is selling her upscale downtown Ottawa condo for about $260,000, and placed ads with real estate website Grapevine and online classified advertiser Kijiji.

    She then noticed a nearly identical ad — with the same digital photos she had used on her advertisement — on another real estate website.

    The one difference: the price. The clone ad listed the condo for $108,000.
