I advertised a Playstation 3 on OLX. I got a call from Anthony Mashaba who wanted to buy it for his son. He wanted to transfer the money and get the couriers to collect the items. I wanted the funds to clear in my account first before I parted with my goods. He insisted to conclude the deal same day. I agreed to meet him in hougton at Houghton Mansions cnr of Aok & Louis Botha. We were met by his "son" Brian" whom he sent to collect the goods. He send me proof of payment via email (Nedbank) and I also received an sms. The funds never cleared in my account and fortunately I never released my goods as I wanted the funds to clear first. The entire environment and set up looked suspicious and I opted out. The initially wanted to meet me at the Sasol garage in Louis Botha. I refused and still have of my goods. Beware people. They used the following numbers 0790610752 /0791559138. The "son's" name is Brian. A similar incident was posted on 5 December but then Brian was the worker and not the son.
