deposit fraud

A guy posted an ad on Gumtree regarding a place to stay. I responded to ad and met with the gut at the place I would've stayed in. I payed a deposit and he gave me a slip to secure the place as it was only available a month later. I've been in contact with the guy via email, whatsapp and text messaging regarding my move. He then started stalling my moving in for about a week which then i subsequently asked for my deposit back to find another place. Again he kept on saying he"ll pay my 2300 back but then just went offline. I can't get ahold of him now
