    Hi everyone, just a warning, I have posted pics. These two “businesses”, run by the same person is a scammer. He has done us in with R4500 and there are a few posts on Hello Peter from about another 6 people that have been done in by him.

    Please don’t be fooled by him. He “closed” The Wood Bar when we enquired about the money he owes us, but re opened the next day with the new “business”.

    It is just too easy these days to get away with stealing and scamming.

    A company will NEVER ask for your pin. When will people understand this??
