Falsified documentation during sale

I was contacted by a guy who calls himself Shaun le Grange. He wanted to buy some items I have advertised on several online sites like gumtree, junckmail etc. He said that he would make the payment via EFT. I received a confirmation of payment from a number +2784000151070668 stating that the payment was made. he also send me a copy of his ID and a proof of payment. He continued harrasing me to bring him the items as he has made the payment. I refused to do so till I can see the money in my account. To date no money received. I now believe that all the documentation and proof of payment has been falsified.

    I was selling my motorcycle on gumtree almost instantly I was contacted by a man named Shaun le Grange. He said he wanted the bike and asked for my banking details. Without seeing the bike. Shortly after giving him the details I received a SMS notification from absa notifying me of a payment made to me. The SMS was a fraudulent SMS and the money was never deposited. The day after he deposited the 'cash' into my account he called me saying he is sending his courier needed to fetch the bike. I told him I wasn't releasing the bike until the money was a cleared in my bank account. He then argued that it was deposited and I must have received the notification from his bank. After telling him I wasn't releasing it to him. He said he'd wait to hear from me. Still no money or anymore contact from him. His contact number is 0719579330
