Olx and uber scam

My brother advertised his Playstation VR on olx this morning. He was contacted by a guy named Joseph Mahlane 0837832409. He offered to buy the VR. He also requested that we take the VR to him but in the east rand but we could not make the trip from Krugersdorp. He the suggested to get a uber driver to pick up the VR and take it to him. The buyer ( Joseph Mahlane) would then pay the driver R650. The driver later phone us from kempton Park saying he cannot find the buyer and he has already tried to sell the VR to cash crusaders and that he wants his money. The uber driver then said if we pay him R650 he will return the VR, after we paid he requested an additional fee of R400. And threatened us that he knows where we stay. We have tried to open a case of theft at the police station but they decided that we should rather go to the small claims court and summon the uber driver. We have no identity identification from the driver all information we have is a cellphone number 0835763686 and that he drives a Blue Toyota Carolla.
