A Sign - Mark Carlson

This person is selling cellphones on OLX under the pretense that they are running a shop based in Witbank. You pay for the cellphone to release it and then they send it to you via courier. I paid for the cellphone doing an EFT (there account is FNB and I paid from FNB to have the funds released immediately for same day delivery of the cellphone).

Since the payment the following has happened:
*first I was advised that the payment had not reflected
*finally he confirmed that the payment was received but the delivery via the courier could only take place the next day this being Wednesday 22 July 16
*On Wednesday he confirmed that the cellphone had been sent via courier then after 5pm informed me that the courier did not accept the goods and would not deliver.
*Thursday we advised him we would come to his shop in Witbank to collect the cellphone which confirmed to be fine and the meeting was for 12 noon
*Upon arrival his phone was off and after an hour of waiting we left - at around 5pm he informed me that he had used the funds I had paid him to release stock from customs but had been unsuccessful but believed the stock would be released on Friday 22 July 16
*Friday - again he has advised that he cannot send the phone and when asking him for the money he has advised that he cannot pay it back
