A Johan Botha (although he may be using an innocent persons ID), tried to scam me today by replying to an ad I had put on Gumtree. Also said he works as an engineer on an oil rig and wanted me to set up a Payfast account. Refused to do an EFT as I requested. Said he was buying the goods for his cousin as a surprise. Used the email firstname.lastname@example.org, and cell number 0610117823. Unfortunately I was stupid enough to supply him with my id as he said he needed proof that I wasn't a scammer. I have reported him to Gumtree and put a post on social media. I see that he seems to operate under the names of a Kyle Smith as well. This guy needs to be caught ASAP.
