0846194586 - Fraudster on OLX-Junkmail-Gumtree

This guy advertised a Samsung S4 for R4200.00 and I phoned him - he said his wife was in labor and he was not available for me to collect the phone.He said he will send someone to my house with the phone - but I have to pay a deposit so that he is assured that I'm legit and that he does not send the person without completing the transaction.He wanted R700.00 deposit - sent via e-wallet - and I refused - seeing that I would be sending money - and not receive anything for it.He showed discontent when I did not trust him and told me that he would not use a contract phone that has been rica'ed - to commit a crime - right there I made the mistake in telling him I was willing to pay not more than R300.00 deposit - which would be an acceptable loss - should he defraud me.Exactly that happened - I realised that he had conned me - and checked on the internet - and saw that he placed the same add - with the same photos in olx, junkmail and gumtree - but everytime the region and province differed - the one was pretoria north - the other was rondebosch capetown and johnannesburg.Could you trace this thief and lock him up - before he does this to other people - which I'm sure he has done pleanty times.Kind Regards.John Giani
