Holiday scam on OLX


I have been scammed on OLX unfortunately - paid a 50% deposit to a Nedbank savings account of R7 500I see that they have listed the same properry several times on OLX and I have tried to lodge a complaint but have not been successful to prevent this from happening to others.Interting is that some of the pictures have been taken from property24 - I have sent an email through to them as well notifying them and in an attempt to establish wither the names match the people selling this home.The links on OLX  for the scam are (I am sure that there are more to do with this particular property as well:

    Good luck! Just try again, especially once you get a case number from SAPS. Give OlX hell. They are pathetic lately and couldn't care about the users.

    Have you reported it to OLX? Why is the ads still on there? Have you opened a case for fraud at SAPS and reported the bank account number?
