Type of a scam Online Purchase

Found product listed on kijiji in Ontario. Company claims to be "headquartered in the United States in Chicago, and in Turkey in Istanbul" but Google StreetView shows that the US address listed is a residential address. Inaccurate information on their website, and product details are vague; product claims to be a detector for "underground resources and mineral, gold, minerals, water, gemstone, diamonds, voids and cavities as well,". The operating principles are poorly explained; and a basic knowledge of geophysics and material properties indicates that the device cannot work as advertised (for instance, no method of direct detection exists for diamonds at 40 m depth below surface; this is a claim of the product. No sensor can detect gold in a 2000 m radius from the product; another claim of the product). Several reviews of the product mention being scammed by the company but I have not personally given them money or been in contact.
