    Today posted add to sell washing machine after discussing over chat with Ravi “8209486833” we got a call that he is sending money over Paytm…over the conversation he has shared bar code to scan through paytm but instead of credit to my paytm account amount has been debited multiple time from my bank account. Please consider this as froud as I lost 6500 lNR…will never use OLX again.

    This is a very common scam. The scammer will contact you telling you that they want to buy the thing you are selling. In most cases they won’t negotiate at all. And will want to send an advance payment as quickly as possible.

    After that they will send you a QR code telling you that it will credit money into your account. You have to remember that to get money you never need to enter your UPI Pin.

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