holiday scam in durban

I was searching for holiday destination in Durban on OLX site. I came across a nice ad, which was affordable I sent a sms for more info. A man by the name of Suresh Naidu contacted me he confirmed it's still available he will send me pics he said I want to show u the accommodation I don't want you to pay for something you haven't seen. He asked me to send my email address, which I did. I was do excited I found something after days of searching. He then called the next day confirming if I'm going to take it if so I need to deposit . He asked which bank I bank with I said nedbank and FNB. He said he banks with capitec if I can rather send it through e wallet from FNB it will get quicker to him to process forms. I paid I confirmed payment with him he recieved it. Then he requested another  for Admin fees. Wen I asked can he add it on quotation. He said with out thedeposit. He can't secure place. I then sent Another .I confirmed payment. Again this man requested for cleaning services that's when I realised that something is wrong I told him that cleaning services can be discussed on arrival. I called he didn't answer he put phone off after calling numerous times . During the course of this happening he provided me with his ID and address in Durban. How ever after research I found the I'd being used if another person's identity. I only have 2 contact numbers that he used to contact me. How can we trace this person if sim cards need to be rica'd. Something needs to be done. How many people has he scammed with this fake holiday destinations.
