property fraud

We're an elderly couple looking for a place to rent. We found one with LAURIAAN SMITH ID 8104250211085. She said they are on their farm and would only be back Sunday afternoon and would phone me to meet. 2 days later she phoned that a lot of people are pesteing her for the place and if we really want it she will keep it for us as she don't want young ones with loud music. The next day she asked for the deposit as they need to make sure. We exchanged ID's and I paid the deposit as we are desparate to move and the rent was affordable.She acknowledge the payment and was so sincere from the start that we did'nt think anything of it. Sunday afternoon came and no phone call to view, phoned her ceel 10 times and left messages, but no responce. We drove to Yelanda str to find a group of people also looking for her to view. She scammed 3 people (that we know of)with R4200  Obviously she was nowhere to be found not on cell o email " should be locked up, now pensioners will have to sit on the streets in 3 days !!!!
