Theft under false pretense


I advertised a Saab 9000 in Junkmail and a person known as Gerrit van Rooyen contacted me and wanted to swap me with a Mitsubishi Starion which he advertised on Junkmail as well (Starion Turbo: 84 Pretoria North ID: 31387755) He also said to me that he was a Advocate and that he will assist me in my labour dispute I had.  I told Him that I was not interested to swap but that I needed the cash. He came back to my house and a women who was his companion drafted a contract. He bought a saab 9000 from me for a amount of R20 000. The agreement was that he pays the car in four installments. He was suppose to pay me every week for a month. He paid me a deposit  and made another payment and stopped paying me. When he bought the vehicle from me I recorded the whole transaction on my video camera. When we sms'd him for the outstanding moneys he refused to pay me and want me to hand over the registration documents to him. I refused because we had a contract and he doesnt answer his phone when I sms or phone him. It is now clear to me that he never had the intention to pay me in full for my vehicle.
