Scammed bt SA Gadgett and Optimal Courier Services

I purchased camera equipment from S A Gadgett, spoke with a guy called Deeds, said he is from Egypt, but I think he is Nigerian. Paid money into SA Gadgett FNB account. Got the shipping detail from Optimal Courier Services with a tracking number. Then got a mail stating there was import tax to be paid. Stupidly I did pay this into Optimal's FNB account, with the promise it will be released. Then got another mail stating I need to pay an additional R7,000-00 for import taxes, because there was more equipment in the parcel. I did not pay that. I know I will not get any equipment.
