I have come across lot of fake ads/ scams too on olx. Claiming they ship product from Uk with all indian customs taken care of etc. One fellow was selling yahama r1 (litre class bike costing 25L in india) for 3L probably. Same was the case with others selling surface pro 3 for 25k or asus rog laptop for 40k etc. Everytime I reported them as fake ads to olx.

I was about to ask about ps4 grey market prices as lot of ads are posted on olx for 18k for ps4 with few free games and couple of controllers.

So obviously a scam.

And a good rule of thumb. If you have to ask whether its a scam or not, chances are its a scam.

Weird thing about OLX and QUIKR, very rarely do I see products that are sensibly priced there. Either its some scammer selling stuff for stupidly low prices. Or some idiot trying to sell you his used item for current market price of a new item.
