Several cases of fake iPhone X being sold in Mississauga and Brampton have come to light.
Peel Police say an individual is selling what appears to be an authentic iPhone X on several online classified websites. The transactions typically include a fraudulent bill of sale for the iPhone X.
Many people bought the device due to similar characteristics to iPhone X, but when they attempted to use the phone they discovered it to be fake.
Having been duped by the scamster, many individuals have not reported the transactions due to embarrassment.
Asking people to report such incidents, Peel Police say that when purchasing items through online classified websites, people should consider the following:
1. Always ask yourself if this is too good to be true?
2. Do not make online purchases from unverified and unknown sources.
3. Use buy and sell exchange zones provided by Peel Regional Police located at 11, 12 and 22 Division.
