Gumtree fraud

I responded to an ad on Gumtree for a Hyandai Getz at a great price of R23 000.  Carla answered the phone and said a holding deposit would be put down at 3pm that day. I asked if I could pay a deposit immediately to secure the car for me. She handed me to her "husband" Derick Bensen who directed me to deposit a holding deposit with Checkers money transfer.  As soon as I did so and informed them they switched the phone off.  I googled the ad again and another one for a Toyota Tazz at the same price and same mileage came up.  So they put up more than one ad.
