Gumtree Scam - Iphone 8 Scam - Nedbank Proof of Payment

I was scammed off my IPhone 8 and R2000. I posted my Iphone 8 for sale on Gumtree and got an immediate call from someone who spoke well. Claimed he was Dumisani Treasure Mbanda ( I suspect that he uses varies alias from his victims). I recieved an sms from "Nedbank" stating a payment was made then later he emailed a proof of payment. Unfortunately I wasnt vigilant in my search as i found only later another person on this page had gone through something similar. He sent a taxify driver to collect the phone and due to my lack of due diligence i didnt screen the screenshot he provided of the taxify (even though we have high security so i have details of the driver and have contacted taxify). Later he claimed that this wasnt the iphone they wanted and was sending it back and i needed to pay for the cab at first i refused as i was like it's his cab. In the end I got scammed off my Iphone 8 and money. I have proceeded to have my phone blacklisted and in contact with Taxify.

the following numbers were used (which are obviously now off ) :
