Buying Tires In The GTA? Beware...

Last week I posted an ad on Kijiji, looking for tires. I provided the sizes I was looking for and asked if anybody had anything for sale to contact me. Within minutes of my ad being posted I got a reply that read "i can help u out and order u in a st of hankooks under $400 installed" Naturally this sounded like a pretty good deal so I gave him a call on the number in which he provided. His name is Perry Cotrim and he claimed to be the owner of Luxury Rim Repair Inc. Perry gave me the address of his "shop" which turned out to be a garage in his parent's backyard and asked me to come by. He asked for a deposit of $200 to order in the tires that I was looking for which I thought was reasonable, he said he would have them in for Saturday and that he could meet me in the morning to install the tires with his "mobile shop" Perry provided me with a receipt, copy of his drivers license (because it was a private cash sale), and a number to contact him with. After about 10 unanswered calls from me trying to arrange a meeting place for Saturday morning I called the other number that was on my receipt. This was the number of a man named Felix, the actual owner of Luxury Rim Repair Inc. Felix explained to me that Perry was an ex-owner and was let go due to various disagreements and theft from the company. Felix told me that this is not the first time he has been contacted about Perry, that Perry has been using this scam since he was let go. Apparently he has a number of fraud charges against him for this scam he's been doing, so I am not the first and unfortunately, probably not the last. It's not that fact that I am out $200, it's that I hate being screwed. So just a fair word of warning, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is...
