    Some guy from claiming to buy my wrecked fridge on olx when asked to send the money gave me some qr codes asked to scan so that I can receive my money. But it actually deducted the money.

    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.

    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.
