On Wednesday 22nd April I loaded pics of  my Apple iPhone 5 32Gigs, with the intension of selling it for R4 500. With 10 minutes I received a call from a certain Leighton Mashaba from cell number 073 981 3341, stating his intension to buy the phone for his daughter.This Leighton Mashaba proceeded to request my banking details so he can transfer the funds. After receiving an sms as proof of payment, he requested my address so his drive can come pick up the cell phone.I enquired with him that the funds where not in my account, he(Leighton) than emailed me a proof of payment, a copy of his ID book and a copy of his proof of address.I gave him my address and his drivers arrived in a old maroon  Toyota Corolla   with registration DHS 371 GP with the driver was using cell phone number 078 538 4508 and drove of with my phone.I have not heard anything from them ever since and no funds have cleared into my account.
