The man, who claimed to be a driver, said he wanted to take the oil home and called his wife only to be told that they needed foodstuff instead.
And given that he doesn't have money, he decided to do a distress sale of the oil. Out of pity, the woman purchased the oil but was shocked to see water when she wanted to use part of it at home.
The lady advised people to be careful not to fall victim to such scams.
