Xbox 360 Latest Scam


I advertised my Xbox 360 for R7000 on Olx on 17 March 2015. Was contacted by Surgen Samuel Dladla ID 6307285345081 and Cell Nr: 073 102 5584 and email: sdladla63c@gmail.com. He stated he wanted to purchase it for his son as a birthday gift and asked for my banking details to make an EFT transfer from Standard Bank.  I gave him my banking details and soon after he emailed & sms'ed me the Proof of EFT Payment from Standard Bank.  His "wife" then came and fetched the Xbox 360 with CAR REG NR: CD 38 LS GP on 17 March 2015 at 11:59.  I handed her the Xbox. On the morning of 18 March 2015 the money has not cleared or showed in my bank account and I contacted Samuel and he stated he reversed the payment because he thought it was a Xbox One and not an Xbox 360.  He stated he will send the Xbox back with a driver. The driver contacted me and demanded I pay R450 fee for the delivery otherwise he will not deliver and he will only take payment by E-wallet.  I said I will pay the R450 cash when he brings the Xbox, but he says NO. He wants payment by E-wallet before he delivers. I contacted Samuel and told him the driver is demanding R450 from me for the delivery and that this was unfair because in my advertisement I stated it was an Xbox 360 complete with photo's and it was not MY FAULT Samuel did not look at the ad correctly. Samuel then stated it was not his problem.  I am at wits end, I know I will not get my Xbox back, but I want to warn others of this scam.

    I have been scammed by the same person... Same ID 6206.. etc. Different name... I have photo's of the guy who collected the items... and obviously a fake EFT payment and fake ID of the guy on the phone...

    I had almost the exact same experience. The buyer was a "Gareth Kuboni" (ID 6206025432080). I have lost my Xbox 360, Kinect and 10 games plus the money I sent for it to be returned to me by a 'disgruntled taxi driver' who hadn't been paid by the buyer for the collection. Sellers be warned. I will be opening a case at the police station in the morning.
