Robbed online

Good day
I posted an ad on OLX and gumtree where I was selling a projector. A certain guy called me and introduced himself as Dr Richard Kunene.

He was interested in buying the projector and would pay via EFT he said. He told me that he was going to send a taxi to come and collect as he was still at work. We agreed, and indeed I received a bank notification which was stating that Dr Richard Kunene has transferred an amount of R2500 from Nedbank to my Capitec account.

But that was not the case because the money never reflected, when I called him to inquire about this he said there's nothing wrong with his account, the money will reflect. I then started searching his name on internet only to find out he is a well known cyber criminal who is using different names to rob his victims

I tried to open the case at Pretoria central police station and they told me i must open the case where the crime took place. I dont know where that is because the crime happened online and there's no online police station

I have the numbers of the driver who delivered the parcel to this Dr Richard Kunene and I think he can assist the authorities to locate this scammer provided they were not working together. But I doubt that they were working together because there were many errors that the driver did in collecting that parcel which he ended up communicating with me directly

I hope you can assist me find this guy just to protect more citizens from being scammed.
