Gumtree scam


Just yesterday, 07/09/2013, I got scammed by a guy named Wayne Mackenzie, I posted an ad for designer perfumes on Gumtree, and within hours I receive an sms followed by a call from him. Apparently his wife is opening a perfume shop in Namibia and he need to stock perfumes from me asap. "Transferred" R7000 into my account and obviously he is using Nedbank, so the payment can only appear the following day. Sends me a notification and his driver who is around JHB will come to collect. I was stupid enough not to wait for the money to clear in my account, I gave the driver perfumes to the value of R7000. I guess I was too eager to make a sale. His number is 081 018 2159 and his drivers name is Mike 078 089 0465. PLS BE CAREFUL!

    Almost got fraud with the same guy.Got a sms notification of R8.500 paid in my account 4 days later i still can't see the money. I told him i'll pay him back once i see the money because i didn't trust him and told him i can't sell the phone anymore. So he asked me to pay him R2000 so long. Same name (Wayne Mackenzie) New Number (061 016 8896)
