    Sipho Sithole, his brother Steven, 'the seller' Joshua and the buyer Mr Miller. Same story... Steven contacted me through my business about 2 weeks ago. A few meetings later and talk of ostrich and crocodile skins as well as saphires emerged. We met again today at Musgrave centre, durban to meet the buyer Mr Miller. Mr Miller, an old white guy, scrawny and gaunt looking, gave the scam away with his odd behavior, that my business partner picked up on. These guys ended up in my car with me, ignition on and I got out and walked away, leaving them with the car. Thank God they didn't steal it. I returned with centre security to retrieve my car, return their (no doubt fake) saphires and legged it. They are very patient, generous and 'trusting' of you to handle their big money transactions for them. Too good to be true. Steven is short, small framed man and likes to wear lots of denim. As of today, he has very bad blood-shot eyes. Sipho is a much bigger, friendlier guy. Smart watch and smells of expensive cologne.
