I posted an ad on OLX selling my Samsung Tablet and I received a call from a guy called Nick Adams from cellphone number 0738799051. On the day of the exchange he sent me an email with proof of payment and it looked genuine so I delivered the tablet. Now I'm left with no Tablet and no money.

    Hi. The very same thing happened to me this weekend. I was selling my S5 when he contacted me. Also arrange to meet us at Mc Donalds Burma. Nedbank payment notification at all. Then he said his wife accidently deposited the money twice. Being the trustworthy kind. I did a e-wallet send the additional money back. Received an sms from the bank now. Cheque has been dishonored due the cheque book being stollen. So I lost my phone and R5500.00. Hope Nick rots in hekl

    Hi All. I was contacted by Nick (0780008279) he want's to buy my PS3 and want's me to meet him at Eastgate tomorrow or Saturday, is there some one that can catch him in the act.

    Well the same has just happened to me. Selling a Playstation on OLX and Gumtree. Sent me proof of payment, 10 minutes later called and said the couriers were on there way. I told not to send them before I had given confirmation that the money had cleared. An hour later they pitched my husband sent them away. The courier company said they were told we were paying for the costs. We said no and sent them on there way. I cant understand why this man has not been caught yet. But everyone beware. Nick Adams 078 000 8279.

    Hi We just received the proof of payment when we saw this... If we arrange a meeting with him somewhere, is there some of you guys that will be interested in being there or arranging police so that we can get him off the streets once and for all?
