Fraud Gumtree

A guy by the name of Jacob Moloi wanted to buy my bike an deposited the money to my account and I got an SMS. Still being cautious I then lied to him and said my bike was broken so I had to cancel the deal. I told him if it was cleared I would re imburse him. He ten hounded me for it and it then cleared in my bank. I did the transaction back to him in my local branch however I then got an sms the cheque got reversed. I luckily still have my bike and my bank will re imburse me what they paid to him.

    Was contacted by a SIXTUS BUTHELEZI ID: 6705225411089 (072)6343474 who wanted to purchase a laptop for his cousin/friend, that was leaving that night. And would EFT amount and send proof of payment. A false POP came through. (NO ref number) with which to check against bank) No money in the bank. Fortunately I insisted on checking with the bank before releasing the hardware. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS TRAP. WARNING FLAGS: To EAGER TO PURCHASE without checking product. Need the item URGENTLY. Suspect Proof of Purchase.
