OLX Fraudulent Fund Transfer


Sold a bicycle to Mike Khumalo, he told me that he woud pay the money into my account and then I need to deliver the bicycle to him in Houghton. I got an SMS from Nedbank saying that a payment has been made into my account with a reference number etc. I delivered the bike to a very dodgy area and gave it to his friend Shaun. The sms came from a 084.... number but looked legit(which it wasn't). So beware of this type of crime. On the way to drop off the bike, somebody else phoned me and said that he had to go pick up somebody from the airport and he would take the bike. Dumb mistake from my side, but be aware.
