In a recent Facebook post, that seemed funny yet serious by a popular Facebook account holder, he expatiated how he was almost scammed by an advertiser on OLX.
Ace Facebook account holder, Kwabena Yeboah said a number (0246536370) did post an Iphone X max for sale which he believes the advertiser uses in scamming innocent buyers.
Kwabena Yeboah narrated that, he left for a mall with a friend who needed to buy similar phone that was advertised by the seller and suggested to meet the seller up at their location do the transaction to which the seller refused and suggested they finish up their transaction at an Uber station rather which was quiet at that moment.
After all persuasions to get the seller to come out to the open failed, Kwabena explained, he left for the uber station to meet up with the seller who gave him an Iphone 7+ instead of the agreed Iphone X max and was therefore told to join them to Dzorwulu for the agreed cell phone but smart Kwabena did not adhere to the seller and went back to the mall where got another call from a different number (0577883884) who later threatened that he wont get away with his money.
Meanwhile, Kwabena Yeboah is pleading with moderators of OLX to take some fraudulent ads off their website and said that he was lucky have escaped being a victim of scam but others might fall victim.
OLX is the most popular Ghanaian online shop with millions of buyers and sellers.
