Scam on Junkmail for New Phones

Recently, I got scammed by a man going by the name Reuben Molefe. He has posted one or two cellular ads on Junkmail - particularly relating to cheap deals on iPhone 4s / iPhone 6 combos and Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge combos. After prolonged chatting over the phone, he  assured me that he was a reliable salesman who wouldn't tarnish his name by scamming someone as that would spread bad word-of-mouth and lose him customers. He refused to give out his banking account details and claimed it was because his account was almost "hacked". He runs a shop in Sasolburg named RM Cellular. In order to receive the two phones that I ordered, he asked that I do a money transfer through Shoprite. After giving me some of his (supposed) details, he assured me I would get my order in 2-4 hours and that he would deliver the package to CourierIT. After giving him the details to collect the money, he stopped replying to my messages and to date I have not received the two phones that I ordered. 
Please beware of this scammer - his name is Reuben Molefe, his number is 073 961 9681, and I.D. number is 7404185551089. His shop is called RM Cellular somewhere on Trichardt Street, Sasolburg, Free State, 1947.
