Loan Scam Impersonation Scam

A friendly guy called from this +658041139? and said can i remember him. I said are you sky and he said yes. He said this is his new mobile nos. And asked me to delete his old nos. And saved this new number. For future contacts. He is opening a cafe and wanted to invite me for his opening soon. He said he will whatsapp me his invitation card.

Next day, this guy sky called again in the morning and said he just lost his wallet and bank cards and he is in need of my help urgently to transfer $5800 to his supplier for his coffee machine delivery already at his shop. Although i asked for more info he did provide and pleaded very urgently with several calls and messages. In the end i transferred twice $1000, total $2000, before realising it was a scam. A police report was made then and i also did inform my banker for the scam.
