Olx scam


Hi i would like to report a person calling herself nikky edwards and looks for ipad and such items on olx.she then tells u if u send the item to her in america she will pay 2000 rand more than you ask for it because of the shipping expences.so you give your detail and the next thing you get is an email with a confirmation that the money will be in your account as soon as a tracking number is given to them.the bank itself send this email out but if you check the spelling it is all wrong.so do not fall for that scam i almost did

    Same here, Warren22470@gmail.com. This is the second time. Also had some one telling me about giving R2000 to cover shipping costs for someone in west-africa. Always deal with cash, no matter what they say.

    I have experienced the same. I did not follow through. But it was the same concept about shipping it for them for R2000 extra with the email address having the exact same digits DESMOND22470@gmail.com

    Advertised a Desktop PC on OLX. A Mr. Jacob Adams reacted to the add. I received an sms from FNB indicating payment was made to my account.. I sent the goods to Jacob Adams but never received the money.
