      Got SCAMMED on OLX. Any advice for further action?

      Stupidity got the best of me. I was looking for a PS4 game on OLX and the price was too good to be true. Since I've had many successful deals on OLX in the past, I did not hesitate to go through this one as well. Turns out, the guy did not have the actual game and has blocked me.

      Is there any way to track down the number? Apparently he's still continuing with the scam with the same number. Screenshot of one of his ads below.

      given how everyone has been scammed on olx atleast once in their life time makes me think that is just a usual obstacle life throws at you.

      If anything, I'd be worried if you didn't get scammed yet.


      I've been scammed twice the same way.
      Once, a deal was too good I couldnt resist, the other, the guy pulled out a gun at a meeting spot. LMAO

      Holy shit bro :O

      Yeah it's just that I consider myself as extremely cautious and aware when it comes to online scams. They got me this time. I've been laughing at myself now.

      I've reported to OLX and filled the online form on FIA cyber crime website, with all the proof. Proper action tou khair I doubt kuch hoga. Nothing gets done in this country unless you have 'contacts'.

      Went to the PS of that area, they took the report and said they'll call me if they ever come up with anything.

      Years now and no call :P

      But yeah, that eased most of the anxiety after reporting.

      bhai all they say now is that "app ke jaan bach gaye, koi jaani nuqsaan nahi howa,' allah ke khair, paisa phir ajaye gaa and etc give some relief and give verbal confirmation haan jee haan je dhoond lain gay and after that nothing...

      to think people here get raped, murdered and so on and their killers are still roaming free, do you think police would be more interested in finding some lost mobile phone or cash !
