    My stupidity, thank god I did not pay the R28k or the 14k requested. I will not leave it here, really sad how honest people get scammed out of there hard earned money and nothing gets done to brings these criminals to justice. Guy I spoke to was Nigerian. Live and learn, I guess

    I received a email as well asking for the same details - however when I gave my details - the turn around time for the approval seemed too good to be true and the fact that they required R2720 for attorney fees... The other things that did not match up was the address in East London and the fact that the email address was not a clientele one and that there was only a cell no. available. I called the guy "Mr. Simon Christopher" and asked which attorneys they used - he could not give me a straight answer and ended up placing my call on hold and not coming back to me after 5-8 mins which is when I googled and found this happend to you as well... I am so sorry you paid the fee.... I find this totally unacceptable - and clientele needs to put a warning on their site or something...
