[size=18pt]I still wonder how those owners will make money with the amount of money they spend on adverts while thieves and scammers flock the site and they can't do anything to verify authentic ads. It shows that experts are clueless!

Let's keep watching them.[/size]

Funny, but I've sold some couple of stuffs on that website, its simple, If you cant see it, don't pay for it.

In my own case here, I posted advert for my car and a scammer re-post my advert with a lower price. The risk there is that if d bastard dupe a gullible buyer, it can get me into problem. I deleted my advert immediately.

Why are people so dumb Seriously it baffles me. Why d hell will you send money to someone for a good you haven't seen and inspected thouroughly? You are all to blame for your woes. Did they use jazz to convince you.

I stay in Ibadan and I bought an HTC one X phone on Google trader last year. The seller was living in Lagos so I had to travel down and inspect the phone myself before anything. I didn't even go with cash just my ATM. We agreed to meet at one eatery at berger and after thoroughly inspecting the phone for over an hour(over some snacks), I went to the nearest atm to cash his money.

Even if you go to computer village to buy any Item yourself and you don't shine your eyes, you will get scammed.

OLX need to enhance their site's security profile to rid out fraudsters who makes up the majority on the advertisement section. To be honest, the site is becoming useless day by day.
Why can't they organise themselves like Ebay?

Because the country itselve is not organized

Some people are just fool and greedy and that's why they are being duped. Imagine a 2005 highlander for #500k some fools will still go ahead to inquire about such kind of advert. What do you expect "awoof dey run belle"

Even at that, you should still go and try to inspect wat you're paying your hard earned cash for

Two friends of mine have been scammed on olx website and the catch was the extremely reduced price for the commodity.

Scammers are everywhere but its so sad olx has bcom a safe haven for them. I was almost duped last month. Av been calling this laptop seller I met on olx for weeks and we agreed to meet. We agreed at 15k and I was to buy 12pcs at 180k. Hp and Acer mini laptop(2g ram/320g hard disk). He first told me to pay and it will be delivered by fedex and I said no since we haven't transacted before. He insisted but I told him to pay is not a problem that after this deal I will be paying into his account for delivery.

He then told me to come to badagry and I told him I can't that he should send someone with the product and I will pay for delivery, he said no that if I really need it I will have to come down. Four days later I drove down for over 2hours from ogba ikeja. On getting to badagry the guy said I should come to seme border. I drove for another one hour. He told me to park at "ecowas" building at seme border then this guy switched off his phone. I waited for over 45minutes then someone called me claiming to be a dispatch driver telling me to pay N10,000 into an account so he can bring the laptops from the warehouse. I asked what was the cash for after stressing myself down to seme border why all this nonsense.

He then said he was sorry that the other guy is his boss that the 10,000 is for car fuel and delivery that it will be deducted from the 180,000. I said no that he should come with the 12 laptops and I will pay him the full cash. He then said how much can I afford for his car fuel that I can send 5,000 and he will come over within 15minutes. Then I deceived him and told him to send his bank account which he did. I told him I don't want UBA and he didn't respond so I called another laptop seller from olx and he played the same badagry/seme format then I told him I was at seme now and he said he was on his way. Told him to send his account details and he sent a keystone bank account. I then called and abused him and he cut off the line. I sent text messages to both of them and threatened to fish them out.

So my people I advice you to ignore all cheap laptop and car adverts on olx. They are all scammers. Beware of this two bank accounts.

UBA: 206-3502-769
"Samuel Emmnanuel"
Gsm line: 0813-023-5197

KEYSTONE: 601-6220-975
"Oseh Ojo Jerry"
Gsm line: 0816-485-5610.

One thing I noticed is that their voice don't sound like their names. They didn't have an accent from western or southern nigeria. Some even sounded like people from cotonou and togo. They are confirmed fraudsters. I was almost a victim. However I have also met genuine traders on olx. Last month I bought four laptops, two gsm handsets and a mtn hynet modem from true biz men. But 80% of olx adverts are all scam. When they tell you they are at badagry, apapa or alaba pls just ignore please. Shine your eyes my people. Its so sad and painful after all the stress down to badagry and seme border. Its these people that are spoiling our country's image. May God heal our land ijn. God bless Nigeria...

Re: OLX Is The Most Useless Website by Nobody: 11:08pm On Oct 13, 2014
I have bought and sold several items on Olx I think cash on delivery should be strictly adopted after the item in question is tested, please why should a person be so gullible to pay for an item he/she has not even seen physically please let's be wise.
