Received Email About an Ad I Didn't Post

 

If you unexpectedly receive an email from Kijiji confirming that you just posted an ad, but you did not actually post the ad, then someone else may have gained access to your account. This could be an attempt to defraud the community.

Please sign in to your Kijiji account immediately to change your password and delete any ads that you did not post. Also verify that your existing listings were not modified.

To change your password:

1Go to Kijiji.
2Click on the Sign In link found on the top right hand of the page.
3Click the blue Forgot your password? link, follow the instructions, and we will send you an email to change your password.
4The password reset link is valid for a period of 15 minutes. Once the reset request expires, a new password reset must be requested.
 

Your Kijiji password had probably been obtained using "phishing", a process where scammers send you fake emails that look like they are from Kijiji and ask you to sign in via a fake Kijiji site.

To ensure that you do not fall for phishing attacks, always make sure that when you sign into Kijiji the address in your web browser starts with https://www.kijiji.ca/city.
