TORONTO - July Ono had been buying used cars online for years without problems.

So she was stunned when she got a panicked phone call three years ago from a friend saying the Jeep Ono bought a month earlier was being towed away by a bailiff.

In hindsight, Ono says she had been suspicious of the tall, charming stranger who had posted his car for sale on Craigslist.

"I was sitting there going, July, there's just something wrong with this person," said the 50-year-old real estate investment adviser. "But I just couldn't figure out what it was."

Ono took the vehicle for a test drive and had it inspected at a dealership. Everything seemed to be in working order.

It was only when Ono got the late-night call while out of town on business that she discovered the seller had used it as collateral on a loan a month earlier.

Online car classifieds can offer convenience and bargain prices, but experts recommend taking precautions to protect yourself from scammers and "curbsiders," full-time fraud artists pretending to be private sellers.

About one in five Canadians who buy or sell used cars online encounter scammers or fraud, according to a recent report by the Automobile Consumer Coalition.

Out of more than 1,000 people polled, 13 per cent said they were contacted by fraudulent buyers who offered to overpay for their car with a phoney cheque, asking the seller to refund the difference.

Another 12 per cent came across listings posted by suspected curbsiders.

Yet 76 per cent of respondents said they weren't worried about fraud.

Online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population, according to the polling industry's professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association.

Approximately 600,000 of the three million used cars that Canadians buy and sell each year are sold on sites like Craigslist and Kijiji, according to research compiled by the coalition.

"This problem is going to get worse and worse," said Mohamed Bouchama, director of the Toronto-based consumer advocacy group.

"More people are using the Internet because of the convenience. Lots of people don't want to go visit five, six, seven dealerships."

George Iny, director of the Automobile Protection Association, recommends looking for mid-priced cars rather than going for the cheapest one listed when you're shopping for used vehicles.

"Don't be a price junkie," said Iny. "The seller always knows more than you. If the car is priced below market, it's almost always for a reason."

Buying junk will often cost you more in the long run, as you foot the bill for pricey repairs.

"The cost of taking something that's in average condition and making it good condition is higher than the premium you'd pay just to buy the same vehicle in good condition," said Iny.

When buying a used car, Iny and Bouchama both recommend getting it inspected before you fork over the cash. You can either take the vehicle to a garage, or look for a mobile inspector who will come to you.

Always ask to see the vehicle ownership and the seller's driver's licence to make sure the names match, said Bouchama.

Check the car's history, which will show you how many times the car transferred ownership, if it was a write-off or if it's been in a major accident.

Bouchama suggests buying from a dealer because of the added level of accountability. But if you're going to do so, Iny recommends keeping a sharp eye out for hidden fees.

Provincial laws in Ontario, Quebec, B.C. and Alberta require all-in pricing, but violations do occur.

"The advantage of the dealers is that if there is a problem, there's somebody you can sue," said Iny.

"A private seller may not be around, or you won't find them if they're a curber."

If you're selling your car online, be very cautious any time someone offers more than the car is worth, said Bouchama.

He also recommends taking a bank draft or cash — never certified cheques because they're easily forged.

Consider setting up a temporary email and phone number to conduct the sale, and always bring someone with you when meeting a potential buyer.

"You never know who you're dealing with," said Bouchama. "There are some scary people out there, especially if you have a very nice car to sell."

An extreme example is the recent death of a 32-year-old Ontario man who was killed after he took two men for a test drive in the Dodge Ram truck he was selling.

Despite the fact that the Internet is an accessible platform for scammers and fraud artists, it also provides consumers with a wealth of information.

"If you want to know how much to pay, the Internet has really empowered buyers," said Iny. "It's made experts out of amateurs."

Ants:  these little pests can make life miserable.  To prevent them, spread a little borax or Comet with bleach around tires, jacks, water line, anything that enters your camper.  This works great if you are camping for one or two days.  Another great tip is to spread petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or some sort of lubricating grease on about the last two inches of the water line and power cord (easily wiped off with a paper towel).  Ants just can't navigate over this sticky substance.  Camping for several days???  Spread cornmeal around areas that show ant activity.  Another idea - Terro is a commerical product available at Walmart or other similar stores.

Squirrels:  They just love those LP hoses.   What they don't like is cayenne pepper or Tabasco.  Not sure how long Tabasco works, but worth a try.  Also heard the folowing are effective:  Use double sided tape around the hoses and sprinkle cayenne pepper over the tape; buy stainless steel spring hose protectors (available at some auto part dealers or online); ultrasonic pest controllers that deter mice and squirrels.  Warning:  don't put poison out as that can be lethal to household pets as well as the squirrels.

Mice:  What man doesn't love a woman screaming at the sight of a mouse????  Best deterrent is to keep all food covered and make sure there are no tiny holes in the camper that allow mice to squeeze through.  Best way to check is wait for dark, then light up the interior of the trailer, opening cabinet doors then go underneath the trailer and look for slivers of light.  Go back to the source and fill with steel wool and expanding sealant (don't overdo). OR, do the opposite and light up underneath the camper, go inside the dark camper and open cabinet doors and look for those slivers of light.  Again, fill with steel wool and expanding sealant.  Ultrasonic pest controllers do a pretty good job.  In some cases, putting dryer sheets into all the recesses of the camper can deter mice and leave the camper smelling nice.  Moth balls in a plastic bag with holes poked through work great, but I find a single way to get rid of that stinky moth ball smell except time - lots of time. We also have a product called Mouse Free that will prevent the entry of mice,ants and other unwanted critters. It is no drip, no mess, and non-toxic and will work in motorhomes, tent trailers, travel trailers, and fifth wheels. Call Automotion at 1-250-573-2475 and ask for pricing for the do it yourself kit or have us do it for you.

Now You’re CookingYou’re prepared and ready to cook!! There are several methods of campsite cooking to choose from – try one or try several. The Camping Source recipe page offers great ideas using these methods. Some camper favorites include:

  • Foil pouches are neat treats and time savers, too. They are the perfect method or cooking with a campfire. On a large piece of heavy duty foil place your seasoned meat, veggie pieces (sliced, julienned, etc.), diced potatoes, and a pat of butter or oil. Add an ice cube or two, fold and seal all edges tightly, and place on the grill. The pouch contents retain their moisture and flavor. Serve pouch on plate and watch their eyes light up.
  • Dutch Oven – a dutch oven is a deep cast iron or aluminum pot with a tight fitting lid that doesn’t allow steam to escape – thus delivering a moist and flavorful dish.
  • Crockpots offer set and forget, one pot style GoCamping campsite cooking. Simply assemble your recipe ingredients in the crockpot in the morning and go enjoy the day. When you return home you’ll be greeted by mouthwatering smells and a ready to go supper.Before using the crockpot method outdoors, be sure to check with your camp hosts about hungry wild animals in the area. If it’s bear or other critter country crockpotting is not for this trip!!
  • Feeling adventurous?? Try an old scouting standby – the box oven. It’s said to work well and turns mealtime into an educational science project.

Tips and TricksSo now you’re an expert. Take along these general Camping Source tips:

  • Clean your grill by rubbing it with a fist size ball of aluminum foil.
  • All items in your cooler should be contained in watertight zip-loc bags.
  • Cover cooking pots – the contents will heat quicker and the lids will keep foreign objects out.
  • Use frozen slices of bread when preparing a “brown bag” lunch – when you’re ready to eat, the bread is defrosted and fresh.
  • Clean out your fridge or cooler by making omelets the last morning of your trip using all leftover meats and veggies.
  • Keep marshmallows from sticking together by adding some powdered sugar to the bag.
  • Swap Hershey’s chocolate with Peppermint Patties for a refreshing twist on the s’more.
  • Remember to leave the campsite and fire ring as clean or cleaner than when you arrived.
