Cheque Fraud

placed an add to sell mags on OLX, received a call from an "interested" buyer.  Received a cheque deposited into my account and confirmed with the bank that this is fraudulent activity as they made a cheque out for R13000 when the mags were in fact R12000 the "buyer" requested that the extra R1000 be deposited back into their account on collection of the mags.  Transaction has not yet been completed as I suspected this to be fraudulent, I have postponed the transaction in the hopes that buy reporting this incident the perpetrators will be caught.  Kindly assist or advise me of contacts that may be able to follow  up.
