Campmaster Town and Country 210 trailer for sale

Scammers advertising a Campmaster trailer for sale for R4,000. Called the number of a guy called "Nico" (061 177 2855) and he said there are several guys already coming to look at the trailer, but nobody has "committed" yet. He said he would keep it for first person to put down a holding deposit. I asked him how much and he said R1,000 was fine.
He said I could just go to a Checkers or Spar and deposit R1,000 at the cash counter, they would then give me a receipt with an M-number and a pin (he said I should use 2020) - and then I should sms him the M-number, which he could use to withdraw the money on his side.
I grew suspicious when I saw the exact same pictures advertised under another ad on OLX, by a guy named "Chris" for R6,000 (cell 082 744 9542). This number didn't work when I called it.
I called "Nico" and asked him about it, upon which he just put the phone down in my ear.
I was lucky - I didn't get caught. There are several other adverts for trailers on Gumtree and OLX at very good prices, but which also looks supicious, by the following names:
Deon Miller 079 364 6206Chris - 082 744 9642Nico - 061 177 2855Graham Beukes - 072 631 3923Leon de Villiers - 061 328 3199

    Etienne is still operating, new cell number though: 0726495697. Advert on junkmail, same trailer. Selling price is R6,000 and it includes bike racks. Normal price would sell for R13,000 for the trailer + R3,500 for the racks. Advert area is Randburg but as I am in KZN I asked how we could do the transfer. He said his brother was coming to Richards Bay this weekend and could deliver the trailer. He asked for a R2000 deposit but when I asked for guarantee, he said he could send a copy of his ID only. I called him again and offered to pay cash to his brother but he hung up before I finished my offer..... Be careful!!

    Also add Ettienne 0767267999 and 0768963865 to the list. Campmaster 210 trailer, bike trailer, houses for rent in Midrand etc. Almost fell for the add but then I stumbled upon this message. Called him anyway, very smooth talker, pushes for deposit via FNB e-wallet. Google those numbers and you get property adds in OLX under the name Sunette Groblaar.
