How to respond to Steele

AUTHOR: Ren - ()

Hello.

Here's how to get Steele's attention and possibly get your money back (or at least cost them money). If you've been ripped off by them like I have, then stop them from ripping other people off. Stop them from being able to advertise.

STEP 1: Find their ads on Kijiji and copy the ID numbers. Steele regualry posts 2 ads daily – one from Queen & Bay (Eaton Centre) and one from Islington & Bloor (Etobicoke).

STEP 2: Go to bottom of Kijiji page and look under Kijiji Support>Contact Kijiji>Email Us. Then, under "Select Topic", choose "Report Scam" and report your story with the ID numbers of the ads.

ALT: The quicker way of doing this of course is to just usE the "Report Ad" button at the top right of the ad itself but sending Kijiji an email the first time will actually get a response. When I did this, their ads were stopped, and that takes money out of Steele's pockets.

Steele has recently reponded by starting to post from a different address but you can help stop them again. So keep reporting their ads. If more people contact Kijiji on a regular basis (even by just hitting the SCAM button) they will stop Steele from advertising on their site altogether. They just need your help to identify the ads because Steele posts from multiple email addresses and don't use their name of course.

Craig's List doesn't really monitor their ads unfortunately, so I'd concentrate on Kijiji. Keep on it. Don't let Steele get away with ripping you off. Because they're just counting on you to get frustrated and forget about it.

Hope this helps you. If it does, share it.
