advertised an Xbox One on Gumtree and only 5 mins later I got a sms from Phillip who wanted to buy it for his son. He wanted to transfer the money and get the couriers to collect the items. I wanted the funds to clear in my account first before I parted with my goods. He insisted to conclude the deal same day. He sent a driver to collect within an hour. He send me proof of payment via email (Nedbank) and I also received an sms. I called my bank and Nedbank and both told me not to give anything away until the money is on my account. Phillip called me several times and was trying to convince me to trust him. He was not willing to give me his bank account no. so that I can double check on the Nedbank page (Verify payment). Because I said that he must wait, he stepped back from the sale - he mentioned his son is leaving soon and he wanted to give the XBox to his son as a gift. He said he trusts me and I can simply transfer his money back, once I have received it. Beware people. They used the following numbers 0832198630 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org. I found this page through googleing his name and I am glad not to given anything out of my hands.
