Vehicle sale scam for money transfer

I enquired about a car on sale on Gumtree a vw polo 2006. The car was advertised for R38000.00.I asked if the car was still available and he replied that it is and that he could bring it to me. All I had to do is deposit money to him for petrol via eWallet. I sent him R1000.00 and he said that he will bring it to me so we can have a look and ill then buy it. He then asked me for more to money because he had to drive from Plettenberg Bay to Mosselbay to fetch the spare keys and then to Port Elizabeth. This he only told me after I've sent him the money. He never showed up and never answered my calls. The guy's name is Devon Wesley Noah. Cell number 0727492915. He sent me his registration paper wilth his details on. I accepted it as a fool that I am. So now I lost a R1000.00 and can be lucky it wasn't more. He had blocked me on Whatsapp and not answering his cell phone.This man is a liar and a thief. Do not trust any ad anywhere sent by him.

    Wow I just discovered this happened to me 1st December 2015. Polo advertised, when I phoned on 0621211610 the guy asked me to communicate with him on wattsapp. He told me he was in Plettenberg (I immediately got suspicious as the ad says Bantry Bay which is CTWN) and he said he lives in Plett and he immediately asked if I have cash. I told him I thought it was a CTWN sale and apologised for wasting his time. I immediately blocked him...not after he has sent me 7 pic of this "immaculate" could have been sooo different....

    The same incident happen to me lastnight. I saw the add on gumtree. I sent an ewallet of R500. Today he asked me for petrol money as he was driving from Plettenburg bay to durban. I then decided to search his details on google and read all his scams.

    Terrible to think that someone will do this to another person. I work hard for the little money that I get. And I sort off trusted him.
