Dog puppy scam

I just found a black pug puppy on gumtree that I wanted and contacted the owner who introduced himself as Jones Morphy and stays in Kimberly. During our correspondence he sent me 17 photos of all the pug puppies and gave all the puppies details as for their age, health etc. I end up paying R3200 for the puppy delivery to cape town to me and the next day I received an email from the animal port delivery requesting R5050 for the puppy crate and that is when I found it really suspicious and start looking on the internet to find this page. I have 'Jones Morphy ID copy' and I deposit the money to Jones Morphy account number at Standard bank. Will it help to recover my money and stop those thieves? I have read all the previous posts but I didn't find any follow up on the previous cases with the bank account investigation, RiCA etc. Could one update on that please.See below details from the email I received.
