I HAD SEEN AN ADVERTSEMENT IN OLX.COM FOR A HONDA ACTIVA. IT WAS FOR SALE. I CONTRACTED THE OWNER THROUTH OLX CHAT.  HE GAVE HIS NUMBER AND STARTED TALKING THROUGH WHATSAPP NUMBER WHICH HE SHARED WITH ME IN OLX CHAT..HE ASKED FOR MONEY WHICH I SEND  . HE SHOWED ME THE PAN CARD AND OTHER DOCUMENTS WHICH I FOUND CORRECT. THATS WHY I SEND THE MONEY. I DID NOT GOT THE VECHILE.AND THE SELLER STOPED TALKING AFTER THAT. THE SELLER HAD POSTED HIS ADVERTISEMENT WITH PICTURES ON OLX.COM BY OBTAINING  PAPER AND PICTURES OF HONDA ACTIVA THROUGH OTHER SELLER IN OLX.COM..ITS MEANS ANYONE CAN POST ANY PICTURE OF ANY ONE. MY QUESTION IS THAT IS OLX.COM ALSO RESPONSIBE FOR A PARTER SPREADING A  FALSE ADVERTISING,  IT WAS ALSO FOUND THAT OLX.COM WAS /IS RUNNING FALSE ADVERTISING BY UNKNOWN PERSONS ON ITS WEBSITE. I TALKED TO OLX CUNSTORMER CARE EXECUTIVE. HE SAID OLX IS NOT USING GPS LOCATION SERVICE AT THE TIME OF UP LOADING ITS ADS.. IT WAS FOUND THE NUMBER OF FALSE ADS WERE BEING UPLOADED SHOWING LOCATION IN DELHI WHEREAS THE OWENER WAS HAVING NUMBER OF EITHER HARYANA OR RAJASTHAN. I CHECKED THE YOUTUBE I FOUND OUT THE INDIAN PEOPLE ARE BEING LOOTED IN THIS WAY.. OLX.COM DO NOT HAVE ANY SYSTEM TO CHECK SUCH ADVERTISIMENT.ALTHOUGHY SAY THIER WEBSITE IS FULL PROOF AND IS SAFE. BUT A NUMBER OF SUCH FRAUD ARE RUNNING ON OLX.COM WITH  FALSE OR MISLEADING. ADVERTESEMENT.  I HAVE ALL THE SCREENSHOOT OF FALSE ADS. .  CAN A PIL  BE FILED AGAINST IN THIS MATTER.AGAINST OLX.COM. WHAT OPTIONS WE HAVE AGAINST OLX.COM IN THIS MATTER OF FALSE PROPOGATION OF ADVERTISEMENTS. THROUGH ITS WEBSITE.

 

THANKS

you can file complaint before consumer forum for unfair trade practices and can also request the forum to direct the OLX not to repeat such false and misleading ads.

My suggestion to the original querist is, that please don't waste your valuable time and energy in such litigation, where in the end you will be disappointed.
