I advertised a product on OLX SA as i got a email from a \"sam phillip\" claiming to be a potential buyer asking if the product was still available and if he could have more details concerning the product. As we got into contact via email \"sam phillip\" asked me if it was possible for me to send the product through to Nigeria as it would be a gift send to a \"good friend\" and so if i agreed i should forword my banking details,I agreed and forwarded my banking details as i got message from \"sam phillip\" claming he made the transfer \"online\" i then got a email in seconds from \"Bank of America\" stating that the payment has been approved but is pending as the money will only reflect in my account once the tracking number has been provided to \"Bank of America\" as this email also stated that if the product is not send and tracking number is not recieved there would be a claim put against us through ourbank for false advertising. As i read this email i was very suspicious and send a email off to \"sam phillip\" explaining my concerns. As he replied \"he all ready made the payment and the money will reflect in my account as soon as a tracking number is recieved i then did some research and found this site and realized it was a scam and reported it.
