Hot Deal OlX scam

So recently I upgraded to new phone and wanted to sell my old one plus 6 device and listed it for sale on OLX

I got 2 very strange queries both of em were demanding for IMEI NUMBERS and PCB number

They said they want to check something online before visiting me personally.

I gave IMEI number to one but when he demanded for PCB no(which i didn’t give) I suspected something fishy.

I even asked him what kind of fraud you are trying to do ?

In response he said first give me the PCB no I’ll tell later.

Does anyone of you ever dealt with such scam?

I am still wondering what was his prime motive with imei number and PCB number.

I tried googling but couldn’t find much info except cloning of device.

if you have any knowledge about this new fraud do share it with me here.

I would love to know more about it

Maybe they were generating fortnite emotes with these details.
Those sell in international market for 10-15 $ each

I have also demanded imei no. as it helps to track service history if done from company service center as many sellers lie about it
But I don’t buy costly item specially electronic from there.
And actually scammers it’s full of it.

I hope there would be bypass for that, coz the integral details are imei and pcb only
Dont have a oneplus device, so didn’t try generating a code

May b in a single OnePlus account multiple codes are possible to be generated… But surely can’t do any bypass to generate a code without OnePlus account

Yeah, might be
Online groups are full of bulk sellers of these codes, and if someone is that rich to afford those many oneplus devices, he wouldn’t have been selling codes online.
So there’s some catch definitely

You can generate code from any OnePlus account
It is not necessary that the code must be generated from the one plus account to which IMEI and PCB number belong to.

True, normal selling price in groups is 200-400
But someone commented on thread that international prices are much higher

Yeah, fortnite is quite similar to pubg
Americans spend dollars and dollars on the in game purchases which we might find very silly, but that’s what it is

You think only Americans do it? You don’t have any idea as to what millennials in India are doing. I personally know 4-5 guys who spend on cosmetic aspects of those games.

Correct, useless things always start from the Western countries and become a trend in India.
