I was looking for buying the second hand laptop from OLX. On searching ad on OlX on 7.8.17, one laptop I found as per my requirement and budgets. When I contacted on the given mobile number to contact, one lady picked up the phone. She introduced her as a Doctor Gynacologist named Poonam and settled in Ranchi Jharkhand.
She said the laptop is in very good condition and She will dispatch it immediately if I can transfer the 50℅ of the amount now. After half an hr she again called me saying that she has talked to the courier company and it will be delivered within 2 days of time to your address in Korba.
She gave me the account details of her husband saying that he is also a Doctor and please do the 3500 Rs transaction via IMPS. As she was looking genuine I transferred amount of 3500 to the provided account.
After half an hour she called me again saying that the amount is still not credited and she has confirmed it from the bank that the transaction is cancelled and hence the amount will be credited back to my account within 2 days. So I have to do the transfer of 3500 again so that she can dispatch the laptop immediately. She was sounding so genuinely that I again transferred the 3500 amount to her husband account.
After 15 min she confirmed that amount is being credited to her husband amount and she has parceled the laptop through track on courier.
I received the message from her mobile with the tracking details. When I tried looking for the details on online tracking system of courier company , there was nothing showing against the tracking no. When I called her again she said that as today is Rakhi so system will start showing the details from tomorrow once the details get uploaded on system.
From then onwards she is not picking any of my calls neither she is responding on messages.
