OLX Scam

OLX Scam I have placed an advert on OLX last weekend for a Camera that I want to sell. I have been victim of this before so I am very weary. I have then been contacted by a guy saying that he is interested in the camera and if he pays now if I would deliver it to him in Houghton Estate. So I said no problem what bank does he bank with? He replied Nedbank, I’m also with Nedbank so the money should be in immediately. So I said if the money doesn’t reflect straight away then we don’t have a deal because I’ve burnt my fingers too many times. And I haven’t heard back. Today the ad was due for resubmission and I’ve re posted it. I then have the same syndicate contact me with a new name and no. But the exact same scam. I’ve played a little dumb this time and provided him with fake details. He has sent me a proof of payment that has been faked and an address where I must drop it off. I’ve been instructed to leave it at another guy because he isn’t there at the moment. What can one do with this? Last time I’ve been a victim of internet fraud SAPS didn’t help at all, Insurance didn’t pay out because Ive placed the item at risk. The Culprits fake names. Understand 079 740 4566 Desmond 076 649 6122 Address To deliver to. 4 Houghton Mantions Cnr Oak and St Johns Rd, Upper Houghton
