Scam artist Nkululeko Diko

We advertised a couch for sale on OLX and received a call from Bongani Zulu to purchase this. We subsequently received proof of payment from a Nedbank account and the buyer sent a driver (Nkululeko) to fetch the couches the next day. The funds did not reflect in our account and we contacted the buyer, who agreed to return the couches. Nkululeko then contacted us to say that he will deliver the couches but we need to pay R 700. We paid him the money but he didn't deliver the couches as his bakkie apparently broke down in Roodepoort. The next day, he insisted that the mechanic needs R 500 to release his vehicle so that he can deliver the couches. Between the buyer and Nkululeko, both were adamant that we would receive the funds that we were paying to get this delivered to us. We foolishly paid the R 500, upon which Nkululeko insisted that he didn't receive the funds, even though we can prove that he withdrew it. We never received the couches or payment.

He drives a Hyundai H 100, License plate RXB513GP and his ID number is 9002215436087. Please be VERY wary.

    Do you still have the proof of payment that he would have emailed to you? We are worried we may have been scammed as well.
