I have seen a seller selling brand new macbook pro on olx for rs.40, 000/-.
Upon asked he told his name arun verma and works at airport custom amritsar, punjab.
I was asked to transfer rs.20, 000 to ship the product and other rs.20, 000 after receiving the delivery.
To which i said ill transfer rs.10, 000 now and rs.30, 000 after delivery to which he agreed. And i transfers the money.

After the transaction he refused to send the product and asked for rs.10, 000 more, which i refused.

He then asked for my account details to return the money.
After waiting so long i was told the money wont be transfered to the account but a cheque will be send in 25-30 days. After few more arguments he refused to refund the money and is unreachable since then.

Upon reading i found one more complaint towards the same guy here is the link to that complaint.

This ad is actually showing my car with reg no KL 11 BC 5875. They had duplicated my ad and asking people to deposit money in their account or to pay directly in Delhi. People are calling me and asking the details. Don't know how people got my land phone number.Plz try to take necessary action.

This guy has put up another AD (Featured) in OLX with username Aru (link below)


He has identified himself as Arun Sharma to me and has provided his Syndicate Bank detail (Jalandhar Branch). When I insisted him to share a pic of his govt. identity card, he has refused claiming he can't do so as he is working in Central Govt. (LOL, ROFL).

I didn't transact, but by conversation he appeared to be a fraud...advise people to be aware of it and should refrain to do any financial transaction with him.
