OLX Scam

I sold my ipad through OLX and this guy named "Desmond Molede" spoke with a very trusting tone and sent me PDF stating proof of payment to assure me that money has been sent. He then said he is busy at work and will send his driver to pick it up because he needs to give the gift for his son who is coming back from overseas so he wants it very urgently! and says he will send you a copy of his ID because he says he is "honest" you will wait for 48 hours and NO MONEY is reflecting in my accounnt! He's phone is now on voice mail and now i phoned his driver, he tells me he got sent to Rustenburg to deliver the ipad and this fake Desmond also scamed him too! he was given a fake adress so now he is stuck there with my ipad. so he claims that if i deposit 300 into his account he will pour petrol and bring it back to me! I feel so stupid and sad right now how could i trust strangers? how could i be so careless? i hope these people burn in hell!!

    This exact thing happened to me today. On friday a lesley mckenzie phoned my about an S4 i put on sale on gumtree he said he is buying it for his girlfriend and would transfer the money now. He sent me proof of payment via email and sms. He then said his brother in law Martin would pick up the phone. I was reluctant by all the proof of payments seemed to be legit so I met with him and gave him the phone. Of course I never received any payment. Then today I got a call from martin saying he is stuck in nelsprite and can't get hold of lesely and has no petrol money to get back and needs 400 rand. so i though what the hell, ill just send him the money and see what happens after all I've already lost 4000 whats another 400. Sent him the money and I kept calling him and he kept saying he was on his way. When it was time to meet I said lets meet at galomanor police station and haven't heard or been able to get hold of him since! lesley contacted me on 0726127563 and makenzie on 0726127563. Hope they burn in hell with all the shit they have stolen
