I turned sixteen on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. I remember meeting up with a good friend of mine that night at Daniello's Pizzeria Cafe Restaurant at 95th and Columbus and grabbing pepperoni slices. When we both got comfortably situated in a booth, he gifted me with a pink Memorex mix CD. Once I got home, I put the CD into my black Insignia boombox and hit play.
At this same time last year, I was the victim of a rental scam. I was but an inexperienced 21-year-old college student from South of the Border with virtually no credit history or knowledge of Ontario rental law. The woman who scammed me knew all of this and used it to take full advantage of me.
