I advertised my laptop on OLX for R12000. I was then contacted by mr William Brooks (0729084794) who wanted to buy this laptop urgently. I reveived an sms from Standard bank to confirm that the EFT has gone through. We arranged to meet at Sandton City. Mr Brooks sent his 'driver' to pick up the laptop and also supplied me with a copy of his ID, TV license account and a printout of the EFT on a Standard Bank letterhead. So, in good faith, I handed the laptop over to the driver. Needless to say NO money has been transferred and mr Brooks' latest excuse is that the bank has 'softlocked' his account - so he does not have access to any funds. I went to Standard Bank and found out that mr Brooks does not even have an account with them.....
