Fraud related to selling goods on Gumtree

My husband created an add on Gumtree to sell our old Samsung refrigerator. Within minutes of loading the add he received a call from a "Patrick Baloyi". He asked for the banking details and again within minutes sent ( from e-mail: Benson Macfery - the ABSA proof of Payment, a proof of residence(for a Garry McKenzie) and ID document ( for a Garry McKenzie). "Patrick" then phoned my husband and tried to arrange to pickup the refrigerator tonight, of course, before the money clears in the bank account.
When checking the details on google, Benson MacFery's e-mail shows as a fraudulent e-mail from 2013.
