OLX Scam to sell Trailer

We had contact Dean this morning at 8am for an add he posted on OLX at 6pm last night. Its an add posted by Dean for Camp master trailer for R5000. nr 0799846904. Address listed as 388 York Ave Randburg.  He asked for a deposit of minimum of R2000 to keep the trailer aside for us. Only an instant cash transfer would do he said. He said we must have it done by a Spar Supermarket. He gave me code nr 8592 as the 4digit pin to enter after using his cell nr 0799846904, for the instant transfer at Spar supermarket. He said he has an Investec account, so this way is the only way it can be direct. We suspected something not right. My husband drove to that address, to find other occupants living there, that does not know of a Dean or know of a trailer. We phoned Dean to say we are at his house (the house nr he originally confirmed with me over the phone as well), and he said "no, I live in 388 B...." My husband said there is no "b". Dean said he gave wrong detail, it should be nr 385...there is NO 385 in that road. We have tried to phone him since, his phone is now off. I have picked up another add also posted today on Gumtree for  a Yamaha raptor with his same name and number. Also reported it on there, it has now been deleted.
