Gumtree sale scam

We sold a new fridge on Gumtree, the proof of payment was emailed to me, the courier came to collect the fridge. After the fridge had been collected the payment bounced, after many calls he informed us that the bank had frozen his account and he will go and sort it out. After 2 weeks he said he has no money we must now phone the courier. The courier has the fridge and says Bradley gave him a fake cheque and he wants the money owed to him to give the fridge back. He wanted us to transfer money for the fridge, so we must pay to get our own fridge back. They where working together the whole time to scam us, and now we have no fridge and no money!!!!!!!!!
