HANDBOOKS – GOAL R5000
I had been scammed – I was told to maybe come here and ask for help. I had my laptop for sale to be able to afford my university handbooks. I got contacted by this guy who wanted to buy it. He said that he would send a driver and do an EFT as well. I asked for cash but he kept pushing EFT – I gave him the definite and went with the sale. I got an SMS notification and he sent a PDF statement so I gave the driver the laptop once he arrived. A few minutes later a 2nd SMS came through with another R1500. I let him know and I told him I’d send it back once it reflected in my account, his with Nedbank I’m with ABSA. Then he said he has blocked the fund transfer and wants the R1500 back – now his sitting with my laptop and I got nothing. I did get a photo of the driver’s plates just in case. What can I do? Where do I go from here? I’m a student – my parents can’t afford to help me. My hands are tied at this moment.
