    Ok, so I have a phone on Kijiji and in a matter of minutes I get the following reply…
    “I’m coming from Sambro Nova Scotia. can you meet halfway at 501 Timberlea Village Pky?,.”
    I look at buddy’s profile and he’s been on Kijiji for 2 days. So everything points to a scam: new to Kijiji, referencing Nova Scotia after Sambro, and giving the address rather than just saying the Tim Hortons in Timberlea. I knew something is up but replied that I would anyway just to see where it went. He never replied back.
    I know it’s a scam I just can’t figure out the end game. All I can think is maybe he was hoping I said that I wouldn’t meet and then he’d propose to send the money instead? What am I missing here?

    I'm guessing he's looking to make a skin suit

    Don't forget to put the lotion back in the basket.

    You’re either going to lose a kidney or gain a boyfriend

    Well I’d like to know which one it is for certain. I like my kidneys.

    I figured out the scam - it was a trick question and the phone you're selling is a brick. Do I win!?!
