Vancouver Condo Parking Rental Scam by Ian Watt from Ian Watt Vancouver Condo on Vimeo.

Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon! It’s Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. I'm actually in the West End right now. Just driving in to an appointment. But here is an interesting situation, we had someone at the building rent out a parking stall. He decided to give the guy half price of all the parking. If the guy paid one year in advance. Well it's an interesting situation because a week later the guy's car got towed out there. He explained this is my parking stall I paid for a year and the six hundred thousand dollar cheque or $600 dollar cheque (what the hell am I talking about) the $600 dollar cheque and turns out the guy was a renter who is moving at the end of the month. He rented out a parking stall that wasn't even his and then he bolted. What a scam notice, so next time your renting a parking stall within your underground. Make sure you talk to the owners directly and talk with the strata or the management company. My name is Ian Watt. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
