Was selling my laptop on Gumtree for a good deal as I got a new one. A "Lucky Zondi" contacted me and was the first to respond.
We arranged to meet close to my office and he said he couldn't make it because he was stuck in meetings so he's gonna send his friend.
His friend arrived and checked it out, he then called me and asked for my account details so he could EFT me the money. Out of a gesture of good faith I accepted and he sent me a copy of his ID.
I received a proof of payment from FNB on +27 87085030004256 for the agreed upon amount of R5,000.00. and thought it would be fine.
Today (04-07-2016) I cannot reach him by his cellphone number and my bank cannot see any incoming funds into my account.
I am truly disappointed by the fact that it is so easy to screw someone over.
I don't even know if there is anything I can do, if there is please comment.
