Scammed out of my lounge set


Place a lounge set on Gumtree for sale, R12 000. Was contacted by 'Charles', who inturn did an EFT from his Nedbank acc to my FNB acc, the same day. Sent me a sms confirmation of payment and email confirmation from Nedbank, prooving that the moneys have been transfered. They collected the same evening. Contacting Charles yesterday he said that the money should reflect in my acc after 24hour which should be today, but nothing is showing, I have tried contacting him and the people who collected the good but with no luck. I dont know what to do and if their is anything I can do. Frustrating to realize you have been scammed and that there is not much you can do about it.
