I attempted to sell an iPhone on gumtree for R13,000. The perpetrator texted me a false confirmation of payment from his ABSA bank acct to my FNB account. He then had a driver, David, meet me to pick up the "paid for" phone.
I gave him the phone, assuming the money to be coming soon to my account. Later in the evening I was suspicious and called ABSA, only to find out the confirmation was faked.

The stolen phone has just been posted by the perpetrator on gumtree, trying to re-sell. The address listed is 50 Durban Rd, 7700 and the phone number provided in the ad is 074 752 6558. This is the EXACT phone that was stolen earlier today. I have a receipt with the Model number, and the phone is not yet for sale in South Africa.
