Scam Artist Renting Ballito Property on OLX

I contacted Shawn Ramkellawan regarding a vacation property for rental in the Ballito area, I was told that the property was still available over the dates that I requested and was asked to call him, he then told me that there was somebody else also interested in the same dates and that I would need to make a deposit of R1200 via ewallet to secure the property, I then made the deposit on Saturday evening, Sunday morning I received a message from him asking for another R500 as his wife wanted more of a deposit, i started getting suspicious, Sunday evening i received another message asking for another R1000 because his sister had died, that was it! I did a image search of the pictures sent to me of the house we were to rent and all the images are from other sites. This is obviously a scam so please be aware!!!!
