Brian arranged for collection in Pretoria and stated that the phone is for his sons Birthday and then later the evening i received a SMS also from a bank number stating that he has deposit R6000-00 to my account for School fees then i started to realise that there is a problem and that these guys are professional cons or plainly stupid. He asked me to borrow R1000-00 to pay for his school fees otherwise his son will not be able to go to school anymore, but i refused.

    Hi JPillay,

    It is so sad , but we learn from our mistakes.
    Did you report this matter to the Police?

    Hi Marius, we had the exact same problem with Nkululeko Diko. We advertised a couch on OLX and he was sent to pick it up. After that, the buyer wanted to return it as the funds didn't clear but Nkululeko refused until we paid him the R 700 for delivery. We paid it but he still didn't deliver as his bakkie apparently broke down. We stupidly paid an additional R 500 to him so that the mechanic can release the vehicle and we can get our property back. He insisted that he will pay us back and even sent a copy of his ID and drivers license.He withdrew the money, our bank confirmed this, but he insisted that he didn't get the money. We still have not received our couches/any money back. He drives a Hyundai H 100, License plate RXB513GP and his ID number is 9002215436087.
