Olx scam 
Jennie Lauren
Email Address:
Jennie Lauren contacted us through OlX regarding an item they want sent to a friend for her birthday. Already she said she would give *amount for shipping fees which sounded to good to be true. Then the truth started to unfold as soon as we came across scams similar to our "client" prefrences regarding the sale.
The item worth was high, as therfore a proof of payment was requested instead of an attached proof of payment we received a letter with the incorrect amount that would be releases when we have shipped the item.
See details as follows.
Here is the shipping address:(that the person wanted the item to be sent to before a "payment is released".)

Name: Abiola Toheeb
Address: 26,Olubodun Crescent
City: ijeshatedo
State: Lagos-State
Country: Nigeria
Postal Code: 23401
