Golf Cart Fraud. Costicento, SAwesternFreight


Hi,
I responded to an add on Locanto for Golf Cartsfor R31,500 including delivery to my house.
The company selling them is called Costicento. I paid the money and was advised by email and sms that the cart will be delivered the next day.
I then received an email from SAWestern Freight asking me to pay R7,800 delivery insurance which is refundable. I did this after phoning Cliford complaining about this, he assured me all is fine.
Then I received an email from Dr. Barret at Rapid Port asking to pay a R10,000 refundable amount in order for delivery to take place...this was to open a user account etc..
I am still in contact with Dr Barret on 071 764 0332, telling him that I will pay shortly. The other contacts, Clifford and Cindy at SAWestern Freight have switched off their phones.

What do I need to do to report this crime? I have asked my bank to trace the funds and refund the payments, but they have come back saying the accounts are empty.
