Mukesh, a resident of Jammu faced an online fraud on Olx today. According to him, he was supposed to get the home delivery of an Activa scooty at his address but on cancellation did not get his money back.
Mukesh said “I saw an advertisement on olx of an active scooty for an amount of Rs. 23,000. I contacted the owner and finalised the deal. He was from Srinagar. I trusted him after he sent me the documents of the scooty including the RC and his service card. I paid him 3,000 advance after he assured he was in Indian Army.”
“He sent me the pictures of the scooty’s packaging. It was all ok until he asked for remaining payment to be done 15 minutes prior to delivery. I refused and canceled the deal but he did not return my advance saying he had paid it as the delivery charges. I lost my money and didn’t get the scooty.” He added
The Activa 125cc scooty had a vehicle number of JK01AK3454 with RC and a service card named Ulfat Ahmad as the owner. His address was House no. 242, Budshah Nagar, Srinagar.
