    Hi. This happened to my husband and I over the weekend as well. We responded to an ad on junkmail about a trailer that was for sale. The cell number was 084 349 3971. He asked for a "holding deposit" of R1000. We did not feel comfortable with that amount and came to an arrangement of R500. He gave us a name of Barry Pretorius with his ID number. We did an instant money transfer and he said he will SMS us the address as well but gave us an address in Centurion. My husband tried to phone him because I couldn't find the address on the maps but he did not answer. I then phoned him on my cell on which he answered immediately. He was so rude over the telephone and pretended he didn't know what I was talking about. We knew immediately we were scammed.
