Jason Hartlen: if you're out there, you'd better turn yourself in. You're a wanted man. And from the sounds of things, quite the scumbag.
Hartlen, you were accused back in 2010 of screwing some nice people out of thousands of dollars during the Olympics in Vancouver. You're also wanted in Alberta for the same thing.
Now it looks like you've hosed some folks in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan out of a thousand bucks or more for a damage deposit on a property you don't even own.
Yeah, people should be smart and not spend money for properties they can't verify -- this apartment was actually rented by the crook. And yes, giving a stranger a thousand dollars in cash for an apartment with no paperwork is a dumb thing.
But you're a dick. Really, man. Just walk into a police station and give up. Tell them you're the jerk who ripped 24 people off in Saskatoon for more than $24,000.
Of course, Jason Hartlen may be an alias. It may be just one of many names you're using to fleece people all over western Canada.
I want you caught and brought to justice. The cops are looking for you.
“We’re going to be finding out all this information through our Canada-wide network of fraud investigators,” said Sgt. Keith Briant with Saskatoon Police. “Anywhere he’s checked for whatever reason, he’ll be arrested and shipped back to Saskatoon to stand and face the judge.”

The 'pink snapper' line does it for me. This ad is into six figures of views now.
1996 Lund Alaskan - $3000Price $3,000.00
Address Brandon, MB R7C 1A3, Canada
For Sale By Owner
Make Lund Boat Co
Ok, this here is the prime honey hauler. Lemme break it down for you. In one month it will be boat season. Until then, all you have to do is wax it.
Float up to the beach in this bad boy and the hoes will flock. Happens every year! Every summer it's the same old thing, give me a ride they ask. I'll take my bikini top off they say, but it doesn't end there. With this 1996 30hp Mercury two stroke you can practically call yourself a chemist mixing the gas and oil! Plus the 72'' beam means you can load this baby up with all the biggest beach whales (trust me, i know).
This wave slammer hauls. If the girl doesn't take their top off that's ok because the wind will blow it off for sure. 40 year old virgin? girlfriend or wife cut you off at home? No problem. This is the boat for you. Built in 1995 the creators definitely had puss magnet on the build sheet. That means this boat has been hauling in fish and pink snapper for over 15 years. This is a bachelors dream right here and you wont find a better price. For one easy payment of 3000 bucks this chick magnet will be yours. I hate to see it go but its time for some other lucky guy to take this boat down to tuna town. But that's not all this trailer has guides for when your hammered drunk at the end of the day you can still loader up. Shoot me a reply and make your wet dreams a reality.

You know that thing related to Kijiji that's all over the news for good reason right now?
Yeah, I'm not going to be talking about that here. Just this once.
YouSuckatKijiji.com is a place for fun. We make fun of people who do Kijiji poorly and celebrate those who do it well. It's a sandbox where we build castles and tear them down and laugh and laugh and laugh.
But what's in the news this week is just sad. I hate using the word tragedy because it's an over-used and hyperbolic expression these days and is most often misapplied. But the Bosma case is, in my opinion, really a tragedy.
I'm seeing a ton of chatter on Twitter today with people saying they're never going to use Kijiji again. I know you're upset, but that's foolishness. This is not Kijiji's fault. It's not. It's not Kijiji's fault any more than it's a yellow line on the road's fault that someone was hit by a drunk driver, or the phone company's fault that someone was frightened by an obscene caller, or the post office's fault you got a paper cut.
Kijiji worked exactly how it was supposed to in this case. A man posted an ad. Someone replied to it. He met them in person. The people he met were bad people. He couldn't have known that. And since the callers phoned his cell phone, Kijiji's only role in the entire transaction was letting someone see the phone number the seller put up.
(Correction: Kijiji says on its blog:
We confirmed to the police that the ad posted by Mr. Bosma on Kijiji did not feature personal contact information, nor did it receive any replies, which determines the incident did not occur as result of his ad posting on Kijiji.
... which indicates there's no Kijiji connection here at all.)
I'm sad for the man's family. I don't pray, but if I did, I'd pray for peace for them and for wisdom for the police and prosecutors investigating this crime.
It would be wise, in my opinion, for Kijiji to pull its media campaign temporarily. That's just a PR thought. I feel bad for Kijiji, too, because they offer a good service and honestly don't deserve the bad buzz they're getting from this. The people at Kijiji Canada work hard to make a good marketplace. They have families, too.
Users and readers, I implore you: Keep going. Keep doing things right. Keep making deals safely. Keep your wits about you and keep reporting suspicious ads to Kijiji and reporting crimes to police.
If you know someone who says Kijiji is dangerous and shouldn't be trusted, please use your position of intelligence and rationality to correct your friends and family. Kijiji is just as safe as it's always been. Nothing has changed. It's still the best place to buy and sell and trade and all that. It's still as annoying and frustrating for all the same reasons, of course, but nothing's changed. Nothing's changed.
Things have changed for the Bosma family. My heart is with them.

The Halifax Mooseheads, a team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, could win the President's Cup tonight for the first time.
The city has suddently gone hockey crazy. Tickets for the playoff game are listed for obscene amounts on Kijiji, but more impressive are the creative attempts to exploit the game and maybe see it live. Here are some of the best so far.
