Person used my bank account for his Scam

I advertised my vehicle on olx and junkmail, a male phoned me and said he saw my advertisement and pictures of the car and that he is definitely interested because he need a car urgently for his wife because she was in a accident with her vehicle and that she need another vehicle to go to work the following day, he asked me for my banking details so that he can transfer the R25000, he came to fetch the vehicle and suddenly he said he is not interested anymore and he want a refund, i told him i will go to the bank the following day and eft it back to him, he insisted i must go and withdraw the cash because he still need to buy a vehicle the same day, i went to the bank and withdraw the cash and gave it to him, after a few days i tried to use my Capitec bankcard at some shops and it was declined everywhere, i went to the bank and they informed me some lady put a stop on my account because she paid for a car but i didn't deliver the car, i went to the police station to open a fraud case so they said i couldn't , that the lady that was scammed must open a case, so i phoned capitec customer care to ask what must i do so they said i must make a affidavit, so i made a affidavit to state my side of the story and gave it in at the bank manager, so today they informed my that they cant take off the lock from my bank account and that the remaining money in my account must go to the victim , this is very unfair now i must loose my money because of a fraudster, what can i do about my situation? i am sure the bank thinks i am the fraudster.
