    Most likely that wasn’t a real army officer. These scammers have a collection stolen Aadhar cards and PAN cards that belong to actual army officers.

    He will probably try to call you again and threaten you. Don’t believe him.

    You can read more about this here https://cyberforensics.miniorange.com/olx-fraud/.

    I would recommend registering a complaint with the cyber crime cell through https://www.cybercrime.gov.in/Webform/crmcondi.aspx .

    Or contacting OLX through safety@olx.in.
