Kijiji rental scammer Hartlen now wanted on Canada-wide warrant

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.”

Good. Loser.
