I wanted to buy a hoverboard for Christmas and found a site on OLX. I called and was told to pay a deposit of R1500 before the transaction can be finalised. I was then asked to pay the balance as it was the day before Christmas and the company was going on leave and they would not have been able to get it off for delivery on time unless I paid the balance. I was a bit nervous then and I had not found this site yet. Next came the big one. I was asked by the courier company (euroline international) via email to pay R5050 for insurance before delivery can be made. After several calls back and forth and being assured that everything was legit I complied. Then I found this site and was horrified. Now I need to report this to the police.
