Fake EFT and documents

I have advertised a laptop and cellphone on OLX. A person by the name of Clyde with the cell number 0834021923 contacted me indicating that he was interested in buying the laptop and the cell phone. He asked in what condition the items was?Clyde then asked my bank details, indicating he was on his way to Port-Elizabeth and need to make the EFT as he is very interested in these items.I then gave him my banking details and my email address. About a 30 minutes later i received an SMS indicating that the EFT was done from ABSA bank by the company DMM Diamonds cc.The phone rang again and Clyde asked me what the address is as he needs to send someone to collect the items. I gave my address to him and told him I will let him know once the funds are cleared in my bank account.Yes you have guessed it, it was a scam. I guess I was the lucky one for being in finance all my life.
