Jacuzzi Deposit Fraud

I posted an add in Junkmail, OLX and Gumtree that I'm interested in buying a Jacuzzi.  I received an email from 27736052538@mms.mtn.co.za sending me pictures of a jacuzzi they wish to sell for R5000, as they no longer use it, and said it's just in their way.  I contacted them and was informed that they have a truck and TLB company and they will be able to deliver it to me (as I could understand they live in Freestate), they apparently had a delivery booked for Pretoria, and there was no effort to transport the Jacuzzi to me the same time.  They also scanned the husband's Id, for protection reference.  I'm sure I'm not allowed to give the Id number on this report, but it is an green barcoded id, non SA citizen, name of the person, Michael Richard Rees Davies, (country of birth England). I did check the status and was a valid SA Id... (Almost sure now that perhaps this copy that was scanned to me was stolen).... I made the deposit payment of R1000 as Absa Cash send, I was stupid to give them the 6 digit number (242824) that they wanted me to use, as this was the first time I ever did a payment like this... I emailed them the proof and the "wife" Lizane phoned me and said that she will call me within a half hour to confirm the delivery time.  Half an hour went by, both telephone numbers were off, still not getting hold of them... I reported the case to my bank and police station.  The cell phone numbers is 0736052538 (Lizane) and 0842018215 (Michael)
