Scammed out of R3700 for PS4 Pro.


I was scammed on OLX. The individual in question advertised a PS4 Pro for R3500 and being as eager as I was having just received some money over Christmas I didn't hesitate to contact the advertiser. This person who went by the name of 'Lisa' was very responsive in confirming availability and assured me that it can be shipped. It's mostly my fault as I was naive in thinking that I could never be scammed but it happened here. She stated that she could get a RAM courier to my home to deliver the console and that it would cost R200 for shipping. I obliged and opted to deposit the money the next day. The the deposit was made at 9 a.m. and was awaiting a confirmation of shipping. She stated that it had been shipped and as I requested a parcel tracking number she ceased all communication. It's been about 8 days since our last contact and I was an idiot thinking that it might still arrive. The number she used was 063 937 9916 and the account to which the deposit was made is MRS PB MOHAMMAD SHULAM . The total value which was deposited was R3700. If any advice can be given contact me on 079 7141491.
