A woman has shared a bizarre story of how she was scammed in Johannesburg recently. The incident left her confused and Mzansi social media users had no answers for her.
Twitter user Matimba_Mhlave took to her social media account and posted:
"Got scammed today! A guy came to me asking for transport money at Jozi CBD. I told him I don't have money 'coz I don't walk around carrying cash. Next thing I withdraw R500 and gave him, only realised when I got to my place kuri ha.a Noo man! It happened so fast"
She said that she was not threatened or harmed. The man just sweet talked her to giving away her last money. The story left many puzzled, however, others have either experienced or heard of similar incidents.
Twitter user JABUMCEE said:
"I withdrew my last 12000 in the thought of scoring a 200000. They had a stone that looked like a diamond. They were 2 black dudes and the Indian posing as a buyer. Ende he had a bag full of cash too to convince me"
"These people took my friend's phone so easily. So my friend met this man saying he can give him R200 if my friend helps him packing boxes into a truck or something. My friend agreed cause you R200 is a lot to a student. So then the guy was like to my friend and this "stranger", "Lemme hold your guys' phones so they don't disturb you while packing" and they agreed. Just like that phone GONE"
"My niece withdrew cash and gave the guys. Even invited them to the house. They stole everything including the car. I think they hypnotise people. How? I dont know but it ls something that is happening. They get you to commit to a convo from a simple thing as asking time"
Many others shared similar stories of giving away money or material possessions in a moment of complete confusion. Some Mzansi users said that it could be some type of black magic that is being used on unsuspecting victims.
