    The same three tried to scam me yesterday. Had me fly from P.E to Jhb in connection with a large building contract. The meeting also followed the course of tanzanite/jewellers/buyers and sellers. First meeting at O.R Thambo with George Moyo. Then met Adam the developer at a Spur opposite East Rand Mall. Then the "jeweller" at "wimpy" in East rand mall. I managed to get away from them there.

    They tried to scam me yesterday (15 August) in Johannesburg - same storey but I refused to part with any money. I was never comfortable with the concept and when they asked for money I walked away.
