I got a reply to my gumtree add from someone calling themselves Malvin(firstname.lastname@example.org 0783902442). He then indicated that he was not in the area but could get a friend(0732355616) to meet me and I agreed to meet his friend at the Mc Donalds at the top of long street, while there he "transferred" the money into my account and I got what looked like a very legit sms confirmation(all the numbers were right and came from long number like the banks use). I left and went home, but after reading the sms again did not see a reference code or anything from the bank so I started doing research, I'm very sure the confirmation is fake and both him and his friend have their phones off. I have been scammed. I just hope anyone else communicating with him will google any of the details above and see this message so that they do not also fall victim.
