My trailer was advertised on OLX and Shaun contacted me the Friday, 12 August 2016, to confirm the purchase and the eft was done the following day, 13 August 2016, and the confirmation was sent to me as above. The selling price is R55000.00 but he made payment of R66000.00, as above. He even sent me a copy of his ID and proof of residence.
