Victim of a Scam

I was selling in Canon camera online (OLX, Gumtree, Junkmail,etc.) and received a call on 14 February 2018 at 17:59 from a Peter Minius Linda whom wanted to purchase the camera for his son. He said he will do the transaction as soon as he can because he would like to send some one to collect it as soon as possible. The so called 'proof of payment' came through via SMS as well as Linda sending it via email along with his copy of ID. He said that the payment would reflect in the next 24 hours and it never did. A Mr A Monaheng in a Silver Kia Reg: FW84FLGP came to collect the camera from me at 19:05. I then contacted Peter Linda (072 459 1741) the following day to find out what is happening, he then said that there is something wrong with his account and is going to sort it out but in the mean time he will be sending my camera back via courier. I then had to contact the 'courier' and I was then told that I needed to pay an amount upfront to have the camera delivered, I then in desperate need to get my camera back, did a payment of R450 via Standard Bank Vouchers on the app to 072 671 2906. They never delivered the camera and the following day they stopped taking my calls.

 

how can I reverse that payment that I had done to the number 072 671 2906? Can I also track when and where the money was withdrawed?
