False ad placed for holiday bookings


A Mr Johannes vd Merwe unlawfully went to my house in Ballito, took pictures and placed an ad on OLX where he advertised my house for holiday renting. Mrs Heidi Law saw the ad on OLX and enquired about the house. This Mr vd Merwe send her a quote and pictures and said that he is our manager on our farm , Jabulani in Vryheid. We don't have a farm in Vryheid or anywhere else! He also send her a booking form with bankdetails where she had to pay in the 50% deposit of R10 000.00. Mrs Law's husband suspected fraud and went to my house to have a look. My tenant let him in and gave him my cell number. He then contacted me with the information and forwarded all the conversations they had with Mr vd Merwe. I've send him an email but he didn't get back to me. What do you suggest I do?
