- Vellah Miya started dating a man she met in May while driving out of a parking lot at a mall
- However, she had no idea he would scam her by stealing her car
- Miya saved up seven-years before she was able to buy her vehicle and she is desperate to get it back
Miya always dreamt of owning her own whip, so she saved up for seven years before finally purchasing a second-hand 2010 Suzuki Alto in 2016.
For two-years the car treated her right, aside from some minor issues, and Miya enjoyed her wheels. It was while driving from the parking lot at a mall when Miya first laid eyes on the handsome devil that would scam her.
She recalled seeing the man standing on the side of the road and she pulled over to talk with him. The charming man won Miya over almost immediately and within just a week, they were dating.
However, according to the DailySun, Miya knew something was up, there was even warning signs, but she chose to ignore her gut feeling because she was in love- and love makes us blind.
So, when the car started having trouble shifting gears, Miya's prince charming offered to take it to the car dealership to have it fixed.
She thought little of his motives, since he had borrowed her car before and returned it, so she agreed.
However, Briefly.co.za learned her lover never returned and he had excuses when she phones him, until he shut off his phone completely.
When she went to his job to confront him, she learned he lied about his work place and no one there knew who she was talking about.
Not only does she now struggle to get around, but she used her car to make some extra money by selling tupperware in different areas of Johannesburg.
Miya has since opened a case of theft, which Johannesburg Central police spokesman Captain Xoli Mbele confirmed.
