olx scam

I saw an advert on olx and contacted the number to buy a TV. I was asked to log on to site Soutech.co.za to register and place order on shopping cart.I was subsequently asked to EFT R3090 to pay for a tv which included delivery.I had paid the funds and got a confirmation from Soutech by e-mail and was promised delivery in two days.I got a tracking number for freight mover services which confirmed my order.On the 11thAugust I received mail from freight mover services demanding payment of R2890for customs tax clearance failing which I would be liable for added charges.Soutech electronics was contacted and I explained that I had purchased an item from a local company and I am not prepared to pay additional charges to what was agreed.I have not heard from Soutech electronics again.
