A person named Chandrasekhar from Raipur had come across a Honda Activa bike advertisement on OLX. As he wanted to buy the bike, he contacted the seller by calling up the number on the platform. After having a conversation, Chandrasekhar agreed to buy the bike for Rs 22,000. To make the payment, Chandrasekhar was sent a link by the seller and he was even asked to provide bank account details; so that he could verify the payments made by him; online. Without a second thought, Chandrasekhar followed all the steps. But, this turned out to be a nightmare as he lost Rs 42,000 from his bank account; in three separate transactions. This happened immediately after offering the bank account details.
