I advertised on OLX the sale of my son's vehicle. A lady by the name of Sarah Ramona contacted me via OLX and said she wanted the car for the full price. She said she worked on the Oil Rigs in New Zealand and had a holiday place in the Northern Cape. That she was coming down on holiday and wanted a vehicle to run around in. She agreed to pay the Pickup agent and bank charges because the transaction was being done via USA. She asked me to open a PAYPAL account as it was easier for her to make the payment. I was a bit sceptical so I read up on paypal and opened account via FNB. She started hassling me to pay WEstern Union the pickup fee from my pocket and only then will her bank release the funds. I started doubting this person and even said to her via email that if she was trying to scam me I would report it. She said she was a christian etc. I then went to FNB and asked them to contact paypal and find out if they had received payment because she sent me proof of payment and there was nothing. I then call Western Union office and they said that I must entertain this person because she was trying to scam me. She even sent me a copy of her driver's licence.
