One of my relative receives a call few minutes ago about asking otp for OLX.

What He Wanted To Do By Using This OTP?

Or

What Can he do with this OTP?

My relative has no Debit card,Upi etc only a bank account.

Number of fraudster – +917668876249 (you can mark as spam)

Actually he said my relative that her Jio Sim’s validity is going to expire.tell me otp to avoid the same.

We actually don’t know what was cooking in their mind… And these are the commin excuse.. That validy is going to expire… May be he wanted to take over the olx account and wanted to dupe others… Or may be something else..

Actually she is having zero knowledge of internet, she do not have any account in e-commerce. That’s why she called me first.

Don’t know what he wanted to do. I already activated bomber. Previously he was calling again and again for OTP but after bombing he is stopped.

Most fraudster accounts get banned from OLX quite quickly. Also, when someone is contacted on OLX people started looking at when the OLX account was creating by going to account page and if the account is recently created then it’s a red flag.

If it’s an old OLX account then people trust it more if that person is selling something. Looks like these fraudsters are trying to take control of old OLX accounts and then scam people by posting fake ads through the taken over OLX profile.

looks like these scammers might be targeting random people to try their luck. If it clicks and that person has OLX account they will succeed else they fail.

The exact same happened with my sister and she gave the caller OTP. Later, when I checked the OTP was from OLX and then I checked the OLX account with her number only to find out that her account was suspended.

Here’s the scamer’s phone number: +919864724671. Please report it.

I don’t know why ‘You’ did it, if you’re asking why they do this:

  • Scammer gets OTP from you creates Account with info and lists Products at cheap prices
  • Interested parties contact scammer, scammer says I’m in a different city and need to ship the product, give me some advance
  • Party provides advance and waits till eternity for Product
  • Spammer gets money, Party gets scammed, You’re bali ka bakra

Why people ask reasons.
Otp means you dont need to share it. Thats it.
Atleast Never share on phone call.
