Gift cards are being used by scammers to scam innocent people into spending their hard earned money. I am a student in Canada and I was scammed into buying 2000 CAD worth of Google Play gift cards. I realized it is a scam before scratching the cards or using them in any way. The cards were still in their packaging and I went back to return them to Walmart where I bought the cards from but I was told about their return policy and was asked to contact Google. Google cited their return policies too and I am stuck with the cards.

A lot of research made me realize that I am not the only one and people are being scammed everyday in a similar way which is very sad. I contacted every possible organization for help and it has been almost 5 months since the scam. I lost my peace of mind, money, time and energy. People have advised me to sell the cards. That would solve my problem but what about others who do not realize this on time? 

I therefore request a scam warning banner to be mandatory near all gift card selling counters in all the stores that sell them. 

I also request Walmart and Google to reconsider their policy and take the Google play gift cards back. 

European Union has a cool-off period rule, it will be really useful for Canada to have it too.

Please sign this petition to help prevent future scams.
