Hi, I was looking to buy a fortuner on OLX and came across this ad Ad details2013 Toyota - Fortuner III 3.0 D-4D 4x4 Auto which has done 38000 km, is located in Heidelberg, and currently on offer for R 195,990.00. please call 011 078 7294 fully serviced still as it is. A Mr Jason Moekeona answered and stated that he is from Alpine Motors and the owners are emigrating and need to make an urgent sale. He further stated that there are many prospective buyers so if I am interested I need to pay a deposit of R50 000 to secure the vehicle. So I played on and ask him to send the banking details. This is what he emailed me:mike khoza <email@example.com> 11:44 (3 hours ago)to me Hi

As per our telephonic (conversation) agreement, both parties have to be happy with (product) car.
Like I said on our conversation, if you are not happy with the car your money will be fully refunded with immediate effect on your presence. I can certainly promise you that the vehicle that you keen on buying is mint condition.
This is a genuine scam. OLX should pursue this matter and apprehend these criminals. The pic of the vehicle is from Hillcrest Toyota.
