Default Re: OLX fake ad victim - Do NOT ever share a pic of your RC book with online buyers

Thought I will update. Got the complaint (Not FIR) registered in the police station.

Well the Menace continues and the Fraudsters continue to put pics of our bike in close to 6-7 ads daily which I constantly monitor and report to OLX and get them blocked.They have gone to an extent of using some other bike pics and using our names. Same ads are posted from numerous different locations. This is very frustrating !!

The people who are duped still continue to come to or house and they are turned away. It has become a kind of habit now.

We went to police station to ask if this should be reported to Cyber Cell but they said they will do it themselves and assure us not to worry. More than worrying has become disturbing for us.

I see no hope of this stopping but just wanted to warn guys through this forum that 'Royal Enfield' is the most fraudulent section in OLX and fraudsters are taking advantage of this and duping people by posting ads at ridiculously low prices so BEWARE.

Some links to fraud ads for reference :

They have given you a CSR and that is all. Which means they filed it and will take no action on it.

Did you contact OLX to take down the fraud ads?
