OLX Cash Send Scam

Good deal on OLX for Acer laptop R365, seller "Johnnie". Paid R650 via cash send as deposit. Then says boss requires further R350 as deposit meant to be R1000. So stupidly I send it because it's such a good deal. Waiting for delivery. Van breaks down. Stuck at mechanic in PMB, can I send R1000 for repair I say no, I'll collect. Get whole sob story, he's a trainee pastor, wife and 1 yr old daughter, working hard to make customers happy, whatsapp picture is Jesus quote etc. I still say no, I'll collect. Go to collect, can't find address, not answering his phone.
