I posted an advert for my PS3 and 7 games on OLX on Friday 16/10/2015.
Shortly after I posted the ad I was contacted by Jacob Moloi who was very interested in purchasing the PS3 from me for the requested price of R4000 .
I asked for an EFT to be made before I handed over the PS3, I then received a "proof of payment" via sms from a supposed ABSA account. He also proceeded to send me a copy of "his I.D and proof of residence".
I then arranged with him for the PS3 to be handed over at Montecasino that afternoon, which took place shortly after the arrangement had been made.
Later that evening he had the audacity to sms me and ask for R400 to "pay for his business expenses" which I refused and then ignored his attempt to call me soon after.
I contacted ABSA this morning to verify the proof of payment and discovered that the confirmation was a fake.
His phone is now off and there is no way of contacting him further.
