EFT and Cheque fraud

I advertised a sound sytem on OLX on 22 July 2014 for R12000.00. A Guy calling himself WAYNE MACKENZIE phoned me and practically begged me to do an EFT. I made the mistake of giving him my account number at FNB. He insisted on sending someone to collect the items the next morning and wanted my address but I refused because I wanted to see the money in my account first. I immediately received a SMS from Nedbank showing the amount was paid to my account. Three days later and nothing showed. Today 25 July I again received a SMS from FNB showing an amount of R13000.00 paid into my account and an hour later a phone call from the same chap who insisted the money is in my account.

I told him he's committing fraud and he immediately hung up.

A Cheque can take 10 days to clear but worst of all is that I have to pay R20 for the deposit into my account.

    Im so glad i googled this guys number before transacting with him. He wants to buy my bicycle for R21,000 and also demands paying by EFT and that a courier will come and collect. He claims its for his son. I wish i could put a bomb into a parcel for him to collect :)
