Gumtree scam William Hoffman 0747549541

Please be aware I responded on an advertisement placed on Gumtree BMW F650GS panniers for sale excellent condition R1,500.00. We agree that I will e wallet R750.00 and the balance when I receiving them. I e wallet the R750.00 after which he contact me and said that he fail to retrieve the money and receive an error 55 message. He contact Fnb and they said the money will be back in my account within 72 hours. He asked if I can e wallet R500.00 and will sent me an email as confirmation of our deal. I Phoned FNB this morning just to be informed that he withdraw the R750.00 as well as the R500.00. He was supposed to sent the panniers today 21st July. I phone him and he said he will go to FNB to find out what is going on. After this I could not get hold of him. Please be careful he still have advertisements on gumtree. I posted the link that is still visible because he removed the link related to my purchase.

    I was looking for a bike part, he contacted me via cell and said he had the part and would ship it, but needed payment by Instant Cell Phone payment and only after I insisted he send an email did he do so. I looked him up on Google and saw this post thanks. His new cell is 0849880131 and email is William Hoffman He claims to be the owner of Hoffman Engineering.
