i recently got touch with these frauds since this was last Friday happening. I contacted the person and he talked to me in a very bad manner. He even said bad words regarding my family and mother and father. I am very much unsatisfied with insecurity and leverage that olx provide to such kind of fraud user. I also came to know that the person who tricked me of 6000 rs via paytm to khanna named unknown paytm no. user is named as Ramesh Tiwari and he is living near sector-63 noida as from his recent similar type ads he posted again of same phone to commit more of such fraud happened just like me. Olx you should have some legal surety that the seller or buyer is authentic and is good for exiting good users. This creates a fear in my heart for using olx further more. I wouldn't recommend of using such application and service if this kind of frauds occurs usually. Please consider my leverage and help me get my 6000 Rs back my any means. I am a student and in a delicate situation of money and study of my career and this kind of act is intolerable in such period of my life. Please consider my request as soon as possible.

Olx this is a kind of act which is intolerable in every sense, the seller use to call as if he is very genuine and then all of sudden after getting paid they just don't reply us back. Who is responsible for such frauds to provide such platform for committing such act. Who is going to pay our losses that we faced? Who is responsible? To an extend olx is about 70% responsible for such act and frauds that true genuine users like us face. They don't provide better secure interface for genuine buyer and most important genuine seller with better procedure of registration. Olx should take full responsibility and pay our losses. Somebody anyone help

Olx even didn't help us they just send me that olx doesn't take responsibility or external affairs in what seller or buyer did on the olx sale but if a buyer reaches such fraud saler through olx what would anyone consider whose fault it is ofcorse olx is responsible but they didn't even consider that i hate olx. Would never recommend anyone to use it further its just a fraud site where more then good bad uses exists

Shaikh Shaukat is the mobile dealer's name and his number starts from 9987

Guys please help me, This will be a great support
the reason olx don't take action is because they get ad revenue from all the fraud ads, frauds are actually making them money, also most of the frauds are islamic gang posing as indin army, trying to rob indias money and ruin indian army's image.
