Domestic Worker has Died Scam

We were contacted by a man using cell 072 435 1817. He told me my domestic worker had died. and then he wanted money for airtime. Without thinking I sent through R200. I know it was stupid, but I was very emotional hearing the news. He then phoned back wanting money for groceries. When I asked to speak to her mother he put a woman on the line. It was not her mothers voice, so when I mentioned it I was told it was her aunty. I know she doesn't have an aunty. When I said I couldn't send any money today, they got a little aggressive on the phone. I haven't answered that number again.

    I was contacted on Sunday morning by a man on the same number 072 435 1817 with the same story and parted with R3000.00. Did you report this to the police and if so to which police station.
