XBOX sale - no payment received

advertised an Xbox One on Gumtree and only 5 mins later I got a sms from Phillip who wanted to buy it for his son. He wanted to transfer the money and get the couriers to collect the items. I wanted the funds to clear in my account first before I parted with my goods. He insisted to conclude the deal same day. He sent a driver to collect within an hour. He send me proof of payment via email (Nedbank) and I also received an sms. I called my bank and Nedbank and both told me not to give anything away until the money is on my account. Phillip called me several times and was trying to convince me to trust him. He was not willing to give me his bank account no. so that I can double check on the Nedbank page (Verify payment). Because I said that he must wait, he stepped back from the sale - he mentioned his son is leaving soon and he wanted to give the XBox to his son as a gift. He said he trusts me and I can simply transfer his money back, once I have received it. Beware people. They used the following numbers 0832198630 and email address I found this page through googleing his name and I am glad not to given anything out of my hands.

    Same thing happened to me yesterday. He conned me out of a Knitting machine worth R5000. He has send me proof of payment, copy of his ID and proof of address. Too late I saw that proof of address is 2017. Uber delivered it and Brandon from uber was so kind to give me the address allocation. He himself did not accept delivery, a friend did. He now uses cell nr 0655268462 and the address that it was delivered to is 93 Hunter street Newville. He still reads whats apps on that number. He made contact via OLX. This story does not end here. just now Sun 11 March 2018 I received a call from a man that said he is Brandon and he still has my machine. I asked him why does he use another phone 0731746850. He said he is stuck in Vereeniging and his boss is all over him. I must tranfer R800 to me so that he can bring my machine back. I said no come here and I will give it to you cash. He said no he cant because he needs the money for petrol. In the meantime I phoned the real Brandon that gave me his number. He was at his house and just got out of the bath. He came to my house and I phoned that number and let the real Brandon speak to that man. He asked his name and he said Brand and he asked him his surname and he put the phone down. Now Phillip has send a message and said the driver will phone me they don't want the machine because they cant use it.
