Gumtree Faulty iPhone scam

A man named Andy 081 757 2802 claims he is a certified Apple technician. Changes careers he no longer has time to fix iphone. He sells broken iphones, claiming it's simply the screen that is cracked and gives full details of his contacts who will fix at a discounted rate. once I purchased the cellphones, still contacting me the story got bigger and more complicated, saying he could actually fix them he just needed more money to buy the screens and he needs the phones back. Im clearly dumb that i fell for this con, but Im not that dumb. Anyways the phones are basically glorified paper weight, or uncomfortable tissues to wipe away my tears. Beyond repairing, i try to contact him but he has now blocked me. I was to punch the man, but i dont want his ugly face near my hands at the same time. So it's a lose lose.
