And how fake websites are created on and they do frauds .
OLX PHISHING / frauds
This is so dangerous, I save myself once in a while of this phishing .
Suppose if you post something like, I will tell you my story .
I post fridge for sale at 5000/- and after posting in 5 mins. I got 4 messages , and they said DONE and they request me for my contact number .
After giving contact number one person call me and says “sir I like it I want it , close the deal my person will come to pick up “ that guy does not ask me for address , condition of fridge and directly DONE the deal .
I started to doubt him a little, but I thought that the man who comes will check all conditions , but he directly ask me for payment options .
I told her that first you check the condition and then we will talk later about payment , but he said “No sir I like it just told me which mode of payment you accept “.
I told her gave cash to that driver who will come to pick up , but that guy said , “we will not do transactions in cash” , they ask me for phone pe .
I told him ok this is my phone pe number send me “hi” and then that guy told me ok .
And after 5 minutes that guy call me and says that sir one notification will popup on your screen accept that and type your UPI pin first the amount will debit from your account after some time 10000/- will come to your account .
I was shocked , I told him WTF is this why I want to type my UPI pin , the payee are you .
Then he gaves me a silly and illogical reasons like her ATM card is from military camp and bla bla .
Then I know that bro this is a scam .
And after that I noticed one thing , that all are scammers who message me in beginning and all sounds like same and uses the same trick .
These is one type of phishing now there is second one ,
In these they post ad on OLX in low price like bikes and cars very low price , 12000/- , 15000/- etc.
And when we contact them they will told you that the bike is not present right now send your address it will directly deliver to you and delivery charges will cut from the price of bike .
If you say “yes” then they call you after 5 minutes and told you that please pay these amount these are the delivery charges after the bike delivered to you the driver will return that amount to you .
And They will talk to you very professionally and tell you that we are from the military , RPF and etc. etc. and they send you of fake Military ID.
Fake E-commerce websites fraud
This is a little advanced fraud, they use lot of brain in it to built a professional website . and same as other E-commerce sites .
