In a recent facebook post, that seemed funny yet serious by a popular facebook account holder, expatiated how he was almost scammed by an advertiser on OLX.

Ace facebook account holder with name, Kwabena Yeboah explained that, a number (0246536370) did post an Iphone X max for sale which he believes the advertiser uses in scamming innocent buyers.


Kwabena Yeboah narrated to his followers that, he left for a mall with a friend who needed to buy similar phone that was advertised by the seller and suggested to meet the seller up at their location to do the transaction to which the seller refused and rather suggested they finish up their transaction at an Uber station which was quiet at that moment.


After all persuasions to get the seller to come out to the open failed, Kwabena further explained that , he left  for the uber station to meet up with the seller who gave him an Iphone 7+ instead of the agreed Iphone X max and was therefore told to join them to dzorwulu for the agreed cell phone but smart Kwabena did not adhere to the seller and went back to the mall where got another call from a different person with a different number  (0577883884) who later threatened that, Kwabena wont get away with his own hard earned money.

Beneath are 2 screenshots of what really conspired between Kwabena and the smart but dumb scammer.
