Gumtree scammer

This guy Ben called within 5 minutes of my ad going on Gumtree. We were selling a fridge for R15,000
He did not even come to have a look but wanted to buy immediately. I said cash only. He said its too dangerous. He will make an Eft. Within a minute I recieved a sms for payment recieved. He called to confirm that I have received it and said he will send a courier/driver to pick it up. He mailed me his ID and proof of residence.

Within minutes the driver called and said he was on his way!

I called Ben to confirm that nothing will be loaded until money reflects IN my account. He hung up. No money, no driver.

I did some research and saw hundreds of people lost their belongings this way!
