    Good day - exactly the same happened to me and my husband on the 6th of July 2016 with Patrick Khuzo after advertising our 6 seater corner lounge suite and bedroom suite. worth R7 800.00 on OLX. We received proof of payment from a Nedbank account, copy of his ID and proof for residential address - Everything looks legit. He sent a driver (courier) to collect the furniture, as he was too busy. We got the name of the driver, his cell number and his vehicle registration number, but according to him the guy also made a false payment to him, to collect the furniture from us. I even googled his name and could no trace anything against his name. Until today, when I googled again and saw your crime report. My husband went to ABSA (our bank) and Nedbank and according to them the proof of payment is not legit. Maybe we should get together and take this guy to Carte Blanche, surely were are not the only victims of this scam!
