Gumtree Scam

Mr. Steven Mohale claimed to have deposited money into my account for a purchase on Gumtree. He then sent me a proof of payment and his ID. The proof of payment was fake (from Standard Bank). He then asked me to drop off the goods at his address: 5 Avenue Mansions Cnr Elm Str & StJohns Rd Upper Houghton Jhb. The phone number he was using is: 082 862 5244. He tries to put time pressure on you to do it on a weekend evening so you cannot check with the bank's fraud division.
