Fake Transfer

I advertised a DJ system on OLX. Recieved a call from a Raymond Parker (Cell Number 0613806995) (Thats What he called himself) who said he wanted to buy the system for his son. He then asked for my bank details to do the transfer and i said to him that i would not give the good with out the money reflecting in the account.. I sms  him and he did the transfer. I received the sms from the absa bank telling saying a transfer was done. Raymond then called and said that his wife had used the wrong account and that it would reflect later that day, but he would send the proof of the transfer with his driver (Cell Number 0842259561) and a copy of his ID ( Probably not his). Needless to say i gave the items to his driver against my better judgment, who came in a Toyota Camry Taxi Reg No WPM024GP Maroon in color. Well its a couple of days latter and i still don't have the R5925. Since this happend i have not been able to get hold of him or his driver, just goes onto voice mail. I thought the reason for RICA a cell line was that we can trace the criminals?Watch out for this A** Hole, as he is well spoken but i do believe what goes around comes around and he will get his just reward.

    Exactly the same happened to us on the 30th of March. Raymond Parker provided us with a copy of his ID (ID number 6206133597084). I have looked the ID up on Home Affair's website and it does not exist. Alarm bells started ringing when Raymond asked if we had any other electrical equipment to sell. His driver also collected the items from us at the lonehill engen garage in a maroon taxi cab. Will we not be able to locate him through RICA? This is absolutely radiculous. His story to us was that he wants to buy the xbox games for his son.
