Holiday scam

As per gumtree add: 404 Infinity Blouberg holiday apartment, I've made a reservation already in June 2014 for the following dates: 18th Dec - 30th Dec 2014 by Mr. Kamal Aboukabar Bello. As being sceptic about gumtree adds I've asked for references. All references checked  out and everything sounded legit at time of booking. Closer to time, I've tried making contact with him with no success. After investigation and contacting a few other agencies, the fear of being scammed was confirmed. Mr. Kamal Aboukabar Bello rented the apartment and managed to scam a few people with the same add. The account details at FNB was in Kamal Aboukabar Bello's name. He took all money out of the acount. I've lost R13400.

    He has switched off his phone. The property does not belong to him, he is a tenant and the owner has given him an eviction order.
