Gumtree eft scam!!!

On friday a lesley mckenzie phoned my about an S4 I put on sale on gumtree he said he is buying it for his girlfriend and would transfer the money now. He sent me proof of payment via email and sms. He then said his brother in law Martin would pick up the phone. I was reluctant by all the proof of payments seemed to be legit so I met with him in Sandton city and gave him the phone. Of course I never received any payment. Then today I got a call from martin saying he is stuck in nelsprite and can't get hold of lesely and has no petrol money to get back and needs R400. The will them meet up with me and give me my phone back, because he claims to of also been scammed. So I though what the hell, ill just send him the money and see what happens after all I've already lost R4000 whats another R400, I'll take a chance and see what happens. Sent him the money and I kept calling him and he kept saying he was on his way. When it was time to meet I said lets meet at galomanor police station and haven't heard or been able to get hold of him since! lesley contacted me on 0726127563 and makenzie on 0726127563.
Hope they burn in hell with all the shit they have stolen
